    About this property

    • Post Office Square is a one-off luxury apartment building, built around 2001 and located in central Tunbridge Wells, a few hundred yards from the mainline station and the high street and lying immediately opposite the lovely open spaces of the Common, with its extensive walks.

      This impressive complex comprises 31 largely owner-occupied apartments, ranging from about 1,000 square feet, with some over 3,000 square feet. Nearly all have private, outside space in the form of balconies or terracing, arranged around a delightful central courtyard garden.

      For those looking for an easily managed secure home, Post Office Square provides both, with private gated access, a designated secure parking space, and a resident steward who is on hand to assist in the day-to-day running of the building, and to provide general help.

      Number 26 is a generously proportioned second floor apartment of just under 2,000 sq ft which has been in the same ownership since 2004. Communal stairs provide direct access to the private inner lobby and a wide entrance hall from the first floor foyer, off the internal landscaped communal garden. In addition, this is the only apartment in the building with its own lift, providing direct access to the parking level, two floors below.

      The accommodation is spacious and well presented, with high ceilings and attractive architraves. The living space comprises a sitting room featuring a pretty fireplace with a gas stove, which links to a raised study area with double doors out to the private balcony.

      The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with Smallbone painted wood wall and base units with granite worktops and is well-equipped with a walk-in larder and integrated appliances, including a range-style cooker. A laundry room provides space for further appliances, and a store room houses the central vacuum system.

      The good-sized principal bedroom suite overlooks the central courtyard, is fitted with a comprehensive range of wardrobes, and has an en suite bath/shower room. The second bedroom also has built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room and, if required, the dining room could be used as third bedroom, Whilst the apartment is well-presented, there is scope to update and re-configure, subject to consent.

    An imaginative and impressive apartment building with grand scale accommodation, developed about twenty years ago and still looking very good today. That's a very good test for such buildings.
