Property description

A superb detached family house originally dating from the 1930’s and subsequently significantly extended to provide substantial accommodation of over 3000 sq ft across two excellent floors. Presented beautifully throughout, points of particular note include:

- A beautifully fitted kitchen with an extensive range of wall and floor mounted units including a wide island, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances including 2 ovens, a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer, microwave and 2 aeg wine fridges. An adjacent utility room is fitted with units to match the kitchen with an integrated washing machine, tumble drier and fridge freezer.

- The tiled floor from the kitchen continues through to a superb open plan dining/sitting room with a fantastic roof lantern and 3 sets of French doors, all fitted with bespoke plantation shutters, which open directly to the garden.

- An impressive double aspect family room with a square bay window to the front and a feature circular window to the side which leads on to a small study fitted with extensive book shelving.

- On the first floor, a spacious landing with a stunning casement window gives access to all the bedrooms and the family bathroom which is well appointed with twin basins on a bespoke vanity unit with a marble top.

- The principal bedroom with high ceiling has a stylish en suite bathroom with a separate shower and a dressing room fitted with bespoke wardrobes. There are 4 further bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms, and one has access to a pretty balcony looking out to the rear garden.

Situation
The property is situated within a popular residential area on southern side of Tunbridge Wells with the famous Pantiles and historic High Street, known for their restaurants, markets, special events and boutique shops, just over a mile away. The town is renowned for its educational facilities with schools for boys and girls of all ages in close proximity.

Outside
To the front of the house the gardens have been landscaped with areas of lawn and planting and a pathway leads to the beautiful oak front door whilst a resin-bonded driveway provides parking for a number of vehicles.
