About this property

  • The Garden Flat occupies the lower ground floor of a handsome Victorian townhouse, the end of a terrace of four, once the home of Elizabeth Wellesley, Duchess of Wellington. Set back from Mount Ephraim on a small private crescent, this imposing residence had the benefit of a wonderful rear garden, the large part of which is now privately owned and enjoyed by this cosy and spacious apartment.

    The current owners have extended and renovated the property, adding a striking kitchen/breakfast room connecting the apartment to the garden with a wall of glass that opens completely on to a paved patio and on to the expansive and level lawn.

    A wide entrance hall, previously used as a dining area, now provides valuable and extensive storage with tall built in cupboards. The spacious and well-proportioned sitting room opens into the new kitchen/breakfast room, and the two bedrooms, one a double with attached nursery or dressing area, are well separated from the living accommodation.

    This charming property offers space, style and the wonderful garden, a very desirable and unusual feature for properties in this sector.

Local information

  • No.70 is in a prominent position on Mount Ephraim, possibly Tunbridge Wells' most identifiable road, a ridge running in a south-westerly direction along the edge of the Common with views across town. Footpaths criss-cross the Common and provide pedestrian access leading to the town centre and mainline station, with the wider Common beyond offering a wealth of opportunity for walking and recreation. A level walk in the opposite direction along Mt Ephraim leads past pubs, cafés and shops to the popular St John's area and on towards Southborough.
  • Royal Tunbridge Wells is the only spa town in the south east of England, with elegant architecture, especially in the historic and vibrant Pantiles area which is about a 0.6 mile walk from the property across the Common. The town offers a variety of independent shops, cafés and restaurants, Royal Victoria Place, the High Street and the department stores of Fenwick's and Hoopers, plus two theatres.
  • Popular with all ages, and especially families and commuters thanks to its wealth of good school choices, convenient rail connection to the City and road access to the coast and the M25 via the A21.
