About this property

  • Nevill Park combines the very best attributes of country-living with the convenience of being situated within the heart of a historic and culturally vibrant town, which is located only 35 miles from central London.

    The private park setting brings seclusion and privacy, whilst the elevated position of the property affords it spectacular southerly views, initially over the parkland and then to beautiful countryside comprising the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Ashdown Forest.

    The extensive Parkland is a natural habitat for a variety of indiginous wildlife. Tunbridge Wells and Rusthall Commons - 250 acres of wood and heathland - are accessible about 500m to the east, at the end of the estate's private road. The town's famous Pantiles area is about 0.7 miles to the south down Major Yorks Road, and its mainline railway station and High Street are just over a mile away.

    The sandstone and yellow brick main elevations of number 6, together with twin-bay frontages at ground and first floor level, floor levels, afford the property with a timeless grace and confidence.

    The original architect ensured the design of the property made the most of the stunning views to the south. All main reception rooms and bedrooms, a vaulted central hallway at ground level and a Juliet balcony were positioned accordingly, with these areas benefiting from very wide and tall sash windows, or French doors.

    The interior exudes a calmness and serenity. All rooms are generously proportioned, with ceiling heights reaching up to 11' 6'', and featuring extensive period detailing such as window shutters, high skirting, decorative architraves and surrounds, picture rails and intricate ceiling mouldings.

    Natural light flows in abundance throughout the property and circulation space is a signature feature, especially at ground floor level where the vaulted central hallway serves the three formal reception rooms, the kitchen/diner and main entrance.

    The property's current configuration extends to seven bedrooms. A gym at second floor level, however, could be converted easily to bedroom use.

    The lower ground floor enjoys its own separate access and is presently used as a large home office suite but this space would work equally well as an annexe, or as a family room.

    The property is superbly presented.

    6 Nevill Park is not detached. A separate, third-party owned property, 6A Nevill Park, is attached to the northern elevation. 6A Nevill park was built originally as an annexe to 6 Nevill Park, before being separated and sold with the benefit of its own freehold title.

    The driveway forms part of the ownership of 6 Nevill Park; the owners of 6A Nevill park have a right of access over it.

My favourite view in Tunbridge Wells and quite a house to go with it!
