A substantial family home with scope to remodel and update, set on an enviable secluded plot of about 1.4 acres in one of Tunbridge Wells' most sought after residential areas
Fieldacre is a handsome and balanced family home, constructed in the early 1970s in the neo-Georgian style. Characteristically, this property benefits from well-sized rooms with generous ceiling heights and plenty of natural light. On the market for the first time in 40 years, Fieldacre represents a fabulous opportunity to remodel and renovate to create a spacious and contemporary home. It is equally suitable for buyers wishing to find a house that can be occupied immediately with a view to improve and add value to as time and circumstances dictate.
Of particular attraction is Fieldacre's wonderful secluded and private position. As its name implies it sits within a plot of about 1.4 acres and is set well back from any road. Accessed off Culverden Down, which provides convenient access towards the A21 to the north and Tunbridge Wells town centre to the south, the house is to be found at the end of a private drive that also serves two other properties.
A gravelled drive leads past a walled and sheltered side garden and on to the front of the house with twin garages and several car parking spaces to the side. The south-facing back garden can be accessed from both sides of the house and predominantly comprises an extensive platform of level lawn with banks dropping to the surrounding tree-lined boundaries.
This property offers an unusually generous and private plot in such a convenient position. Subject to planning permission, the orientation of the house lends itself to the possibility of developing the rear or side elevations to take full advantage of this very desirable setting.
Currently configured with four double bedrooms, one of which is en suite, the accommodation takes full advantage of the south-facing orientation. The principal rooms downstairs all benefit from this sunny aspect and are accessed from a spacious entrance hall.
Together with a good-sized study and utility room with outside access, the house has a comfortable and welcoming feel. The dining room and sitting room open out via wide folding glazed doors, and French doors give access to the large brick-based conservatory.
A covered passage separates the house from the twin double garage, with further useful space provided by the large connected workshop.
Fieldacre offers many desirable advantages and will appeal to buyers looking for a generous and flexible combination of house and land, with multiple opportunities to be explored.
