    About this property

    • Post Office Square is very much a one-off luxury apartment building in central Tunbridge Wells, built around the millennium, largely owner occupied and with emphasis on security.

      The complex offers 31 individual apartments ranging from about 1,000 square feet and with some covering over 3,000 square feet. Nearly all the apartments have good, private, outside space in the form of balconies or terracing, which supplement the delightfully planted central courtyard garden. Other benefits include secure gated parking and a resident steward, who has an office in the car parking area and who is on hand to assist in the smooth day-to-day running of the building and to offer general help to the residents.

      Found on the second floor 14 Ephraim House provides a generous and flexible layout which is beautifully presented throughout. This south-facing apartment benefits from good levels of natural light due to the extensive windows across the front elevation.

      The apartment also enjoys good ceiling heights and a stylish finish, with ceiling coving to the principal rooms and moulded panelled walls to the dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with painted wood wall and base units by Smallbone with granite worktops providing good storage and preparation space with a range of integrated appliances and direct access onto the balcony.

      The good-sized principal bedroom also enjoys direct access onto the balcony, whilst the arrangement of the second and third bedrooms offer flexibility of use. In addition to the impressive sitting room there is a very useful adjoining study which is perfect for working from home.

      The private balcony accessed via both the principal bedroom and kitchen provides a sheltered spot from which to enjoy the sun and an uninterrupted view of the communal garden. The communal gardens lie at the heart of the development and are well stocked to provide year-round colour and interest, with a water feature as a central focal point set on a brick-paved seating area.

      Notably this apartment also provides secure parking for three cars (one single bay and further bay with car stacker).

      14 Post Office Square offers ease of living and longevity; this is a lovely permanent home in Tunbridge Wells, an ideal lock up and leave or pied à terre.
