About this property

  • Norfolk Heights is a modern purpose-built block of apartments, completed by Cala Homes in 2006 and located in a highly convenient position, in central Tunbridge Wells.

    Enjoying the superior penthouse position, 18 Norfolk Heights provides a generous and flexible layout which is presented to a high standard throughout. This spacious, apartment benefits from very good levels of natural light due to the extensive windows across the front elevation and enjoys wonderful, far reaching townscape views.

    Having been updated by our clients the stylish kitchen provides very good storage and preparation space with a range of integrated appliances and direct access onto a more modest balcony to the rear, with space for a bistro-style table and chairs. The generous dining area is ideal for entertaining.

    The impressive and sizeable sitting room overlooks and opens onto the large, paved balcony to the front, with interesting views over the town. The balcony can comfortably accommodate larger garden furniture, perfect for alfresco dining in the warmer months of the year.

    The good-sized, dual aspect principal bedroom provides good storage, with a bank of fitted wardrobes and a beautifully appointed ensuite bathroom; this bedroom also enjoys direct access onto the terrace. There is a further double bedroom with ensuite shower room, whilst the third bedroom offers flexibility of use, used by our clients as an occasional third bedroom and home study. A further cloakroom completes the accommodation.

    A lift in the communal hall provides access to the secure underground car park, with a vehicle entrance off York Road. Visitor parking is available to the front of the building accessed via Church Road.

    18 Norfolk Heights offers both ease of living and longevity; this is a lovely permanent home in Tunbridge Wells, an ideal "lock up and leave" or pied à terre.

Views, security and convenience! This location is super, you are just a stone's throw from everything the town offers in all directions. Minutes from the shopping centre, a stroll to St. Johns to the North, a stroll to the High Street to the South, and a stroll to Camden Road, which offers so many new restaurants, fresh coffee, an artisan bakery, fishmongers, green grocers and so much more. With secure parking in the middle of town this apartment is a rare proposition.
