A wonderfully elegant period property situated on a quiet no-through road which leads to the Grove Park, just steps away from the High Street and town centre, offering 4 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms and an abundance of original period features. Coming to the market for the first time in 35 years.
This charming period property is located on a prime residential road in central Tunbridge Wells, within easy walking distance of the town centre, mainline station, and situated just a few steps away from the beautiful Grove Park. Arranged over 3 floors and offering 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen overlooking the courtyard garden, that offers the new owners a chance to create truly elegant living within the heart of the town.
The accommodation of the ground floor consists of the spacious sitting room, which has a large bay window and the original fireplace with gas insert (currently disconnected). The hallway also leads to the second reception room, currently used as a dining room, and also featuring the original fireplace, original fitted cupboards in one of the recesses, and a peaceful outlook to the rear of the property. Situated to the rear of this floor is the kitchen, which is well designed to include a good range of wall and base cupboards and fitted appliances, with room for casual dining, and with large sliding doors to the rear west-facing courtyard garden. A shower room with WC completes the accommodation on this level.
The house also offers real potential: coming to the market for the first time in over 35 years, it would respond well to a refurbishment in line with the needs of the modern family, such as potentially extending to the side return to create the much desired open plan kitchen. Having retained many of its period features, it would provide the perfect backdrop to combine contemporary living whilst retaining the beauty of its era. The rear courtyard is very private thanks to its tree lined boundary and is sunny long into the evening due to the westerly aspect. All in all, this is a spacious property, perfect for refurbishment and all set in the most wonderful of locations.
Further stairs up lead to remaining 2 bedrooms, once again good doubles and with their original fireplaces and a more cosy feel due to the eaves of the roof which characterise the rooms. There is a separate WC, which has the potential to be created into a further. Many of the bedrooms feature original fitted cupboards, and there is also access to the loft.
This charming home is situated on Sutherland Road and has a small area of private garden to the front, and a further secluded west-facing courtyard garden to the rear. The courtyard is flanked by an attractive original wall, with a gate to a pathway that leads to The Grove and the road itself. On road resident parking is available.
This house is situated in the heart of “the village” area of Tunbridge Wells, believed by many to be the most lovely part of Tunbridge Wells, thanks to its leafy parks, Victorian architecture and close proximity to the mainline station, High Street and The Pantiles. Many houses in the area have been converted into flats, so this is a fine example of an original house, beautifully preserved with its original period features. It is this charm, combined with such a fabulous location that we love. For a new or growing family, there is plenty of space for everyone to find their own area, with the rooms providing flexible accommodation which can be adapted as the needs of the family change.
Sutherland Road is a highly regarded location on the southern side of Tunbridge Wells. The property is located a short stroll from the lovely Pantiles, believed by many to be the most beautiful space in Tunbridge Wells in which to relax and unwind, it is very near to Grove Park. It is approximately a 3 minute walk from the mainline station, and there are also excellent further schooling options in the area, within both the state and independent sectors, including 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.
