About this property

  • The property has been sympathetically updated and enjoyed over the last 35 years by the current architect owner to provide informal modern family living including a large kitchen overlooking the garden, a good ratio of bedrooms to bathrooms, plus a delightful new orangery behind an excellent large modern integral double garage, along with a well-organized and fitted lower ground floor. This, combined with a charming mature rear garden, makes for a rare and exciting opportunity to own one of the few, larger historic houses in this location.

    Claremont Lodge makes up the majority of the front elevation. A separate cottage is attached to the left, with its own parking and a garden to the rear.

    In 2019 the modern extension received a Tunbridge Wells Civic Society Design Award. The lower ground floor has planning permission for a sauna, plunge pool and fitness suite, or a cinema, so offers great flexibility for any incoming purchaser.

    The 21st century extensions are built and insulated to current standards and include underfloor heating.

    History of Claremont Lodge
    The Grade II listing references the front elevation, which is faced with red mathematical tiles and later bay windows under its tiled roof with two dormers. The house has a Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and Royal Tunbridge Wells Civic Society commemorative Plaque on the front facade, referencing the colourful character, Madame Caballero (1788-1877), who owned both Claremont Lodge and another, much larger house nearby called Grecian Villa, on land subsequently developed as Buckingham, Grecian and Norfolk Roads.
