A warm, cosy and characterful period property set within the heart of the St Peters’ district, offering beautifully presented and extended accommodation in a very peaceful location.
13 St Peters Street is a wonderful period cottage, situated just moments from the town centre and main-line station of Royal Tunbridge Wells in a lovely tucked away position. As would be hoped from these period properties, it has some lovely period features, but also a deceptive amount of accommodation space, having had the loft space converted and the cellar fully tanked. As a result, it offers far more accommodation than would be normal for these properties. Outside there is walled courtyard garden laid to patio and with a secluded feel. This home offers the new owners a beautifully presented period property, larger than average for the area and in a truly great location.
The property is accessed via its front door, which is set down a path that runs along the side of the property. Upon entering the property, to the left, is the pretty sitting room, complete with a tasteful open working fireplace, original storage cupboard and, window overlooking the front garden. To the right of the entrance hall is the second reception room, with wooden boards to the floor, original decorative fireplace and open access to the well appointed kitchen. This is fitted with a range of wall and base units in white shaker style, with oak effect block worktops, quality integrated appliances and French doors providing access to the secluded rear courtyard garden.
On the upper floors are three bedrooms and the family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are found on the first floor, where the extremely generous bathroom is located, fitted with a bath with shower over, but with ample room for a separate shower cubicle if the new owners required. On the top floor is the very successful loft conversion, a very generous space, flooded with light thanks to the velux windows, and with useful eaves storage. The cellar has been fully tanked (still under warranty) and accordingly provides an additional useful and flexible space, perfect for home working, children’s play room, a teenage den or additional bedroom.
The St Peters’ district is typified by these charming late Victorian properties, popular with families thanks to their close proximity to the excellent St Peter’s CEP school and extensive parks. What we love about this property though, is that a family can have the excellent and valuable additional space that the property has been extended to provide. Accordingly, it has 3 good sized bedrooms, the master of which feels tranquil and calm, thanks to its position at the top of the house, a really generous bathroom situated on the first floor, and three reception spaces. Every room is beautifully presented and flooded with natural light, and the courtyard garden has been designed to provide a great low maintenance outside space. The combination of a period property, filled with period charm, yet extended to provide a larger than average property for the area with a contemporary feel, makes this a really great property for any family to consider.
St Peters Street is a highly regarded location on the favoured southern side of Tunbridge Wells. The property is located within easy walking distance of the town centre, its high street, mainline station and the lovely Pantiles, believed by many to be the most beautiful space in Tunbridge Wells in which to relax and unwind. There are excellent schooling options in the area, within both the state and independent sectors, including St Peters CEP primary school and for secondary level, those in the sought-after Kent Grammar system. Tunbridge Wells has a diverse range of restaurants, shops and sporting facilities and the impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is only 45 minutes' drive. There are a range of fabulous open spaces on your doorstep, including Calverley Park, Grove Park and Dunorlan Park, with all the recreational amenities that they have to offer, including children's play areas, tennis courts, boating lake and astroturf pitches for hockey and football. If you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns can be reached by train or car in under an hour.
