About this property

  • 115 Culverden Down is a spacious and individual family home located in a highly desirable residential area of Tunbridge Wells. Set well back from Culverden Down, this unique house is believed to have been constructed in the 1970s as the home of a director of a local building contractor. Re-imagined and re-modelled extensively by the current owners, this property is impressive and efficient, with contemporary finishes inside and out while retaining the best of its architectural roots.

    The downstairs layout is configured for family living with the kitchen, dining room and family room open to each other and spanning the rear of the house with glass doors opening on to an expansive flag-stoned patio. Double doors connect all of the principal rooms, including the large and welcoming entrance hall, allowing for easy movement and creating a wonderful space for entertaining.

    A further downstairs reception room has been subdivided to form a study and a guest bedroom. With an adjacent shower room and a door to the outside this additional accommodation offers the potential for configuration as a self-contained annexe, subject to obtaining all necessary permissions.

    A glass-balustrade staircase leads to a galleried landing and five well-sized bedrooms, including an impressive master suite with a bath/shower room, a dressing/sitting room and a walk-in wardrobe. Ceiling heights to several rooms extend into the pitch of the roof, one of the characteristic elements of the original 1970s design, and windows set high above the landing allow natural light to flood in. An additional family bathroom and a spacious shower room complete the accommodation.

    Outside
    The architect-directed renovation of 115 Culverden Down (Dye Tabrett of Tunbridge Wells) included Western Red Cedar cladding to the first floor, Scandinavian high performance windows and new roofs. The house now presents a warm and modern look and is sympathetic to its leafy surroundings.

    An in/out driveway affords accessible parking for several cars to the front of the house and a flagstone path leads to the front door and on around the side to the rear patio. The rear garden has been landscaped and features several terraces of level and sloping lawns, interspersed with established shrubs and tree-lined boundaries.
