    About this property

    • 17 Calverley Park Crescent is a striking Grade II* listed end-of-crescent town house, designed by Decimus Burton and constructed between 1828 and 1835 of local Tunbridge Wells stone, with an eye-catching full height curved bay to its eastern end. Originally, these properties provided shops and services to the grand villas in Calverley Park with the accommodation above, but by 1837 they had been converted to full residential use.

      The property benefits from the high ceilings and elegant proportions of this era and retains many period features including large sash windows, some with built-in wooden shutters, dado rails, deep skirting boards and panelled wood doors. Situated at the end of the crescent, the rooms across the principal floors enjoy a double or triple aspect, providing very good levels of natural light.

      The ground floor is home to the impressive kitchen/dining room with it's large sash window to the front overlooking the gardens with shutters and built-in cupboards beneath and to the side.

      The light and spacious first floor drawing room benefits from a marble fireplace and dual aspect. French doors open onto the South-facing balcony with views over the communal gardens towards Calverley Park and the town beyond.

      The first floor also houses the bespoke family bathroom, from West One Bathrooms, and includes a freestanding bath to the bay, a freestanding vanity unit with wash basin and a large walk-in shower.

      Three double bedrooms are found on the second floor, each enjoying a different vista. The principal bedroom, with built-in wardrobes also has two windows to the South elevation offering delightful and far reaching views over the town towards its southern fringes.
