About this property

  • Originally built in the 1830s, Hungershall Mews was one of several former coach and stables blocks to be found on Cabbage Stalk Lane that originally served the iconic Italianate villas of Hungershall Park. The properties have since been sympathetically updated and restored to include handsome Crittal style doors, underfloor heating throughout and impressive principal bedroom suites whilst retaining the overall charm of the properties.

    The beautifully appointed kitchen/dining room is fitted with shaker-style units, Quartz worktops and integrated Bosch appliances, including an induction hob, oven, dishwasher and fridge freezer. French doors open from the kitchen onto a courtyard garden, ideal for alfresco dining. The cosy sitting room is partitioned with an impressive dual-aspect feature fireplace, whilst a separate wc/utility room off the hallway completes the ground floor accommodation.

    Upstairs, the principal bedroom enjoys a stylish en suite bathroom, with porcelain tiles, underfloor heating, a Duravit bath and separate shower, twin sink units and striking Arte fittings. The second bedroom also boasts an en suite shower room, with views of the neighbouring nursery (Wyevale) and countryside beyond.

    Other features include new timber windows throughout, Worcester Bosch boiler, antique brass electrical switches, bespoke Corian vanity units, Smart Control central heating system and Ring doorbell system.

    The location of these properties is most impressive, conveniently located in this sought-after private park, with scenic footpaths via Cabbage Stalk Lane and the Common onto central Tunbridge Wells.

    The property is approached via a private shared courtyard, with on-street parking available on Hungershall Park.
