Description

Dating back to the 1920s, this character four bedroom property has some surprising features and enjoys an elevated position with an outlook over delightful gardens in this prime residential road, close to the centre of Tunbridge Wells.

The immaculately presented accommodation is arranged over three floors with good ceiling heights and many windows creating a feeling of light and space. Characterful touches include bespoke joinery, light oak parquet and wide boarded flooring and pretty fireplaces.

The light-filled sitting room has an open plan feel with an anteroom/study area off and enjoys a lovely outlook through a square bay window over the garden.

To the rear of the house lies a country-style kitchen/breakfast room with a traditional walk-in larder and doors opening out to a courtyard garden and linking through to the dining room.

A former separate annexe has been amalgamated into the main ground floor accommodation by the current owner to create an en suite guest bedroom and a practical utility area off the kitchen.

A well proportioned master bedroom with a shower room and a delightful dressing room with doors out to a small roof terrace, two further good-sized bedrooms and a bath/shower room are positioned on the first floor.

The lower ground floor has been transformed to provide a study fitted with a wood burning stove and benefitting from its own private side entrance and useful storage space.

The Icehouse
Of particular interest is the surprising subterranean outbuilding which belongs to the house and is accessed from the rear Frant Road side. The origin of this amazing domed space is uncertain, but the remnants of posters on the walls suggest that it was used during the war as an air raid shelter. Currently it provides additional storage space as well as a fascinating conversation piece.

The delightful established garden wraps around the house and slopes with a pathway down to a pedestrian gate on the on the Warwick Park side. Directly around the house is a level area comprising an area of lawn with a flagstone terrace to the rear and side providing lovely corners for enjoyment of the arden depending on the time of day.

The current owners have strived to attract wildlife to the garden which is an oasis of colour, stocked with a wide variety of interesting trees, shrubs and herbaceous plantings including camelia, magnolia, conifers, several majestic Scots pines to the front, olives and swathes of hellebores and spring bulbs.

To the rear of the property is a secondary pedestrian gate with a shared path to the Frant Road to facilitate ease of deliveries and providing access to the icehouse.

Parking
There is an off road parking space for two cars alongside Warwick Park. The property is within Zone A; residents may have up to two permits at £80 per permit for 12 months.
