Substantial and elegant Edwardian family home in highly desirable location with ample parking and impressively-sized garden
This handsome and substantial detached Edwardian home occupies a very generous corner plot of about a third of an acre. There is much to recommend this distinctive property and it will appeal to families seeking a spacious family home with versatile accommodation, many authentic features and wonderful outdoor space.
Nestled into the naturally sloping landscape, the house benefits from a wonderful south-westerly outlook over its garden and beyond. On the ground floor two elegant reception rooms share this view, together with a sizable study and a front-to back dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room that opens onto an impressive balcony in a commanding raised position above the garden.
A central staircase rises from the welcoming reception hall to serve good naturally lit landings on the two upper floors and the six double bedrooms, two of which have impressive en suite bathrooms.
A real asset is the lower ground floor. Two useful rooms with ample head height both open onto the garden and add significantly to the available living space. These rooms are currently used as an artist's studio and a games room, and further storage includes a good-sized wine cellar.
The delightful gardens include a well designed vegetable garden and terraced lawns bordered by mature shrubs and planting. With over one third of an acre in total, the outside space balances well with the impressive scale of the house and completes this highly desirable Tunbridge Wells property.

A very comfortable family house, which is typical of the location, but with two surprises which make this exceptional. One being the really lovely, large garden and the other being the generous off-road parking.Robert Jacobs
