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.

    Number 11 Ephraim House, Post Office Square is a fine, up-dated apartment with a lovely outlook onto the communal gardens from its private south west facing courtyard garden.

    Our clients have replaced the original kitchen and the bathrooms and installed air conditioning to the bedrooms. Generally, the internal accommodation is stylishly presented with lots of built-in furniture.

    Stand-out features include the spacious open-plan living room and kitchen, which opens straight onto the private courtyard garden, the barrel vaulted ceiling in the long dining hall, the fitted study and the stunning principal bedroom suite, with its fitted dressing area and spacious, stylish bathroom.

    Finally, the apartment is considered to be peacefully situated in the building, given the convenience of the town centre location.
