Exceptionally well presented and extended Victorian property with South-facing garden in sought after location in Tunbridge Wells
This beautifully presented 4 bedroom Victorian property is situated on the highly desirable Stephens Road within the heart of St Johns in Tunbridge Wells. The house is one of the largest of the original Victorian design on the road and sees the accommodation arranged over 3 floors, with 2 reception rooms, a fabulous open plan kitchen with dining and seating areas, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The current owners have sympathetically extended and refurbished the property to create extremely stylish and contemporary living in a character property, whilst retaining many period features, including decorative fireplaces and the original sash windows. There are also lovely views from the bedrooms over Royal Tunbridge Wells, and the secluded and landscaped rear garden has a southerly aspect. This stunning home with tasteful and elegant décor is situated in a popular location in the St John’s School catchment area and also close to High Brooms mainline railway station.
This property features a south facing open plan kitchen/diner which has been designed to capture as much light as possible, thanks to the large sliding doors that flank the entire rear wall and the generous veluxe windows. The contemporary kitchen has white base and wall cabinetry and quality appliances which include an induction hob, dishwasher, 2 built in ovens, a convection microwave, fridge and freezer and also has underfloor heating. Eight people can be comfortably seated in the dining section and this area is perfect for both family and more formal dining. The sitting room at the front of the property has a wonderful bay window with shutters and an attractive fireplace, and the second reception room, which can be accessed from both the hallway and kitchen, features another original fireplace, is also beautifully decorated and acts as an elegant snug, although this could be used as a more formal dining area if required. Wooden balustrade stairs lead up from the hallway to the first floor, and a convenient cloakroom completes the downstairs accommodation.
On this floor there are 2 bedrooms, a family bathroom and second smaller shower room. The spacious master bedroom has a bay window with shutters and also a decorative fireplace and extensive fitted wardrobes. Both bedrooms on this floor have access to the bathrooms. The family bathroom features a bath, large shower cubicle, and two sash windows, flooding the room with light, all on an attractive tiled floor with underfloor heating. The shower room has a large walk in shower, basin and WC. The second floor has 2 further bedrooms, both of which are doubles, and there is also a small area on the landing, perfect for home working.
An original Victorian tile path leads up to the front door with an attractive garden to the right and an original storm porch creating a memorable first impression. The rear garden is beautifully landscaped and completely enclosed and is easy-maintenance with a large terrace, which is perfect for al fresco dining and barbeques. There is also an area of lawn, flanked by mature trees and shrubs, and a living wall shielding the shed, creating a very attractive backdrop to the house. Parking is available in the road outside the property.
