    About this property

    • The beautifully presented half of an impressive Grade II* listed villa, attributed to Decimus Burton, one of the foremost English architects of the 19th century. The elegant Georgian
      proportions of this iconic home can be fully appreciated, with high ceilings, formal reception rooms with huge shuttered windows, French doors out to the garden and a hooded veranda.

      5 Calverley Park is beautifully presented with a stylish contemporary finish which complements the wonderful period features, including a David Haugh kitchen opening through to a large conservatory with an en suite guest room off.

      There are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor and the cellar has been recently reconfigured to
      create a family/cinema room with an adjoining wine store.

      An enclosed gated garden lies to the front and rear of the house providing a high degree of privacy, with a walled courtyard, paved terraces, lawns and established borders. The private driveway provides parking for several cars in addition to the detached garage.

      History of Calverley Park: Calverley Park was one of the first residential parks established in the early 19th century, realising Decimus Burton's concept of ‘rus-in urbe', bringing the essence of the countryside right into the centre of town. Considered to be one of the most prestigious addresses in Tunbridge Wells, the sizeable villas are arranged in an arc overlooking the ‘pleasure grounds', purchased by the Council in 1920.
