    About this property

    • 24 Calverley Park is a handsome stone-built period family house dating from the early 19th Century set on a good-sized town plot in a convenient position in the most centrally-located of the Tunbridge Wells private parks, with the mainline station and High Street within a third of a mile.

      The property offers elegantly-proportioned accommodation with good levels of natural light and character features including moulded coving and architraves and generous timber-framed sash windows, with folding shutters to the principal rooms. The front bedrooms benefit from delightful views towards the parkland whilst the reception rooms overlook the garden.

      The drawing room has exposed floorboards and full-height French windows leading to a covered stone veranda and a fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove set on a flagstone hearth. The light-filled sitting room has a wide bay window to the front and a fireplace with an ornate painted surround and a tiled hearth and slips.

      The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with painted units under granite and woodblock worktops and a three-oven electric Aga.

      There is useful lower ground floor space currently arranged as two double bedrooms, a games room/gym with access to the courtyard, a bathroom, cloakroom, utility room and storage areas.

      The principal bedroom includes extensive fitted wardrobes and tall sash windows framing an outlook over the garden to the park beyond.

      There are three further first floor double bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the accommodation.

      Outside
      The garden lies to the front of the house, sweeping gently down towards the private parkland. The boundaries are formed of low stone walling, timber fencing and mature mixed shrubs and trees offering shelter and screening. A paved west-facing terrace, accessed from the drawing room via the veranda, spans the front of the house and provides a wonderful space for outdoor living and entertaining in the warmer months.

      The property benefits from dual access, via a timber gate in the stone wall from Grove Hill Road and a driveway leading from Calverley Park itself, opening out to form a parking and turning area by the entrance porch.
