Near The Skinners' School & Tunbridge Wells Girls' Grammar School. This substantial period house is on a residential road hugely popular with families and professionals alike, as it is in walking distance of excellent schools, local amenities and superb transport links. It is also a stone's throw from a sought-after park and the town centre's shops and restaurants.
It is beautifully styled and oozes Victorian charm and period architectural detailing whilst delivering a family friendly contemporary style of living. A smart exterior of beautiful bay windows, arched porch and walled front garden welcomes you inside its large hallway, brightened by the door's pretty decorative glazing.
The open plan living room on the right of the house is bright and spacious with a deep front aspect bay window flooding the room with sunshine. An exposed brick chimney breast houses the wood burning stove and the painted wooden floorboards stretch to the rear, where French windows open into the garden. It is a very welcoming and graceful room with plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining.
Along the hallway at the back is the stylish kitchen/dining room which has room for a table and chairs in front of the French windows, giving you garden views as you dine. A mix of granite, wood and stainless steel work tops and breakfast bar adds unique character. With space for a large range oven, integrated Bosch dishwasher and room for additional appliances, it is a cook's dream.
Climbing the stairs lit with tread lights up to the first floor's wide landing, there are three bedrooms, all of which are large doubles with graceful proportions that give a very tranquil feeling.
The master bedroom has two windows, one a deep bay, and a wall of fitted wardrobes.
Across the landing is the spacious family bathroom with a double shower cubicle and a stunning copper double ended roll top bath tub with floor mounted mixer tap.
Up a further flight of stairs to the second floor are a shower room and two further large bright double bedrooms. Both bedrooms benefit from eaves storage spaces and the one at the rear could double as a second reception room or a home office.
This handsome period home has a pretty rear paved courtyard garden, wooden pergola and walled perimeters on all sides making it a safe sanctuary for children and pets. A wooden shed provides storage while a wooden gate to the rear provides street access for bins.
