    About this property

    • A most impressive double-fronted Victorian Villa with a striking contemporary finish which brings this substantial family home right up-to-date. Located in this prime position, Phoenix House offers a fabulous home, ideally placed for family life, being within a mile of the sought-after grammar schools and the mainline stations at High Brooms and Tunbridge Wells.

      The accommodation is arranged over three floors and the lovely character features typical of this period are all in place; well proportioned rooms, with high ceilings and large bay and sash windows creating a feeling of light and space whilst dado rails, picture rails, decorative coving, folding window shutters and pretty fireplaces all add to the appeal.

      Our clients have created a spacious kitchen/dining room by integrating the former drawing room to provide lovely family space, installed a stylish Neptune kitchen and renovated the flooring. The kitchen opens out to the garden which is lovely additional space for entertaining during the summer months. The generous ground floor space also includes a bay-windowed drawing room, a sitting room and a cozy "snug". The adaptable accommodation upstairs currently comprises four double bedrooms, including a superb principal bedroom with en suite bath/shower room, a family shower room, and a laundry room on the first floor, a charming mezzanine study area with an outlook over the garden, and two further good-sized bedrooms on the second floor, together with a shower room, ideal for teenagers needing their own special space. Below there is a surprisingly generous cellar, currently used as a workshop and storage.

      A pretty courtyard-style garden with terrace and an area of lawn lies to the rear of the property, accessed via the kitchen where a covered pergola provides sheltered outdoor space. To the front, is a generous area of garden with shrub borders and high hedging screening the road and a pedestrian gate leading to the impressive porched entrance. A driveway lies to the side of the property, shared with numbers 17. Our clients and the neighbours have built a garage building between the two, with Phoenix House having the benefit of a single garage. There is parking space for several cars in front of the garage alongside Phoenix House and a gate to the rear garden.

    From my experience, this is a house which really works well for families with teenagers, offering lots of space, combined with a convenient location for the town, trains and schools.
