SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES The inspired design of this carefully renovated Victorian home has captured the essence of classical elegance whilst delivering a family friendly contemporary style of living.
Its bay fronted exterior gives a nod to the age of the property with its characterful architecture and stone steps leading up to a bespoke front door.
An immaculate hallway of Victorian proportions welcomes you in, its oak flooring signalling the quality of finish found throughout the house.
On your right is a classically beautiful sitting room with high ceilings and period detail. Light pours into the room from the generous bay window with stylish wooden shutters offering homely privacy as you curl up in front of the handsome fireplace.
At the end of the hallway the large open plan dining room/kitchen is outstanding in design and flawlessly styled. Oak flooring and bespoke cabinetry cleverly conceal ample storage spaces with a tardis like under stairs walk in cupboard housing the boiler. The room is gloriously bright with double French windows bringing in views of the garden and it is large enough for a dining table of epic proportions.
The well separated kitchen area forms an open U space at the far end of the dining room enabling you to chat to friends and family as you prepare dinner. Plenty of stylish units topped with wooden work surfaces are separated by the integrated appliances whilst dual aspect windows and a skylight bring in more natural light.
Climbing the carpeted stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms all with calming décor and graceful proportions that give a very tranquil feeling.
Across the landing is the exquisite family bathroom whose claw foot roll top bath and period fittings add a touch of vintage inspired glamour, giving a sense of timeless elegance. Its rear aspect window reflects light off its white fittings and contemporary tiles for a soothing bathing experience.
Up a further flight of stairs to the second floor is the master bedroom suite. Its soothing tones, double aspect shuttered windows and contemporary en-suite make it a romantic and restful retreat. It also benefits from a deep walk in wardrobe eaves recess that completes the feeling of luxury.
Outside the pretty walled garden is neatly laid with a high quality artificial grass that is soft underfoot and virtually hassle free. The garden has a pretty Mediterranean feel with colourful flowers climbing up its painted white perimeter walls that fully enclose it, offering a sanctuary for children. The garden can also be accessed through the dining room's French windows, extending the living space into the garden in the warmer months.
This is a truly stunning family home on a popular residential street only a short walk from local shops, schools and transport links. It offers a luxurious and contemporary standard of living that would enhance any family life. A must see!

Excellent local primary schools such as St James C of E, Claremont and The Mead School sit alongside the highly regarded and sought-after girls' and boys' secondary grammar schools. With a number of additional exceptional state secondary schools in its borough and the renowned Tonbridge and Sevenoaks Schools on its doorstep, parents are definitely spoilt for choice.
Recreational amenities such as Grosvenor & Hilbert and Dunorlan Parks, Calverly Grounds, the Assembly Hall Theatre, Nevill Golf Club and St Johns Sports Centre offer an abundance of leisure facilities.
With its two stations, Tunbridge Wells and High Brooms, Tunbridge Wells is a commuters dream as even in off-peak there are up to four trains an hour to London Charing Cross in 50-minute journey times or less.
Finally, the M25 with its links to Gatwick and Heathrow Airports is accessible via the A21 which lies just north of Tunbridge Wells.
