Detached 5-bedroom family home on the south side of the town, with over 3100 sq ft of versatile space, well-presented throughout. No onward chain, SW-facing garden, off-road parking. Spacious hallway, 3 reception rooms, plus study and open plan kitchen. Lovely garden with terrace.
This attractive detached property which backs onto Forest Road is a fine example of a rarely available, early 1930’s, 5 bedroom, family home, located on the popular Whybourne Crest, within walking distance of the historic Pantiles, High Street and the train station. With over 3100 square feet of accommodation, the house offers highly versatile and generous accommodation, in first class presentation throughout. Offered with the added advantage of no onward chain, a south-west facing garden and off-road parking, this house has much to offer its new owners.
The spacious hallway is a very welcoming space, with large windows ensuring the area is flooded with light. On the left is the formal sitting, a light and bright room thanks to its triple aspect, with square bay windows flanking each end of the room and with access to the rear garden. There is also a feature fireplace. To the right of the entrance hall is the generous dining room, fitted with a beautiful Amtico parquet floor, and with a wood burner ensuring that this is a warm and welcoming room on chillier evenings. Beyond is the convenient study, with an aspect to the front of the house. The wonderful open plan kitchen is situated to the rear of the house and is the perfect space for the family market, with ample room for cooking, dining and casual seating. The extensive glazing in this room make it a lovely light and bright space: there is a large roof lantern, plus three sets of doors to the rear garden, all fitted with plantation style shutters. Adjacent to the kitchen is the cosy family snug and utility room, the latter of which has a range of wall and base units. The kitchen itself is fitted with a range of kitchen cupboards and quality appliances, with granite tops, and a generous island separates the cooking area from the seating area.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is to the side of the property, and features a dressing room and spacious ensuite bathroom. There are four further double bedrooms on this floor, all well presented and two with their own dedicated bathrooms. A family bathroom serves the remaining two bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has access to a lovely original balcony, with views towards the town that sits on the doorstep of this house.
Outside, the garden wraps around the side and rear of the house, laid mainly to lawn and with a terrace running across the rear of the house, the ideal spot for summer dining. A recessed element sits under an original veranda, which creates a very attractive backdrop. There is a children’s playhouse and storage, plus a bike store. To the front, a driveway allows for off-road parking, and there is plentiful on street parking available when required.
Whybourne Crest is situated on the favoured south side of Tunbridge Wells, and within walking distance of The Pantiles, the elegant Georgian colonnaded walkway believed by many to be the most pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells to browse, shop, eat, drink and stroll. A regular farmers' and craft market is held fortnightly on the colonnade and features an excellent range of stalls selling high quality local produce, hot foods, crafts, homewares and accessories. The mainline station, with its fast and frequent trains to Central London is also under a mile away and there are excellent schooling options locally, 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.
