A detached family house in this picturesque village, offering stylish, contemporary accommodation
The property lies towards the end of a no-through residential road in the Kent village of Speldhurst, sought after for the dual benefits of its location within the High Weald Area of Outstanding N atural Beauty and its proximity to the large towns of Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, with their extensive amenities, well-regarded schools and strong commuter links to London.
The village boasts a thriving community spirit and local services include a church, village hall, primary school, village stores with post office, cricket ground and public house.
State and private schools: Speldhurst has its own highly-regarded primary school, rated "Outstanding" by Ofsted in 2014, and there are a number of other well-regarded schools in the area, including grammar schools in Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells and private schools such as Holmewood House preparatory school in Langton Green and Sevenoaks and Tonbridge at secondary level.
Mainline rail: Tunbridge Wells (about 3.8 miles) with regular services to London Charing Cross and Cannon Street from 50 minutes. Tonbridge (about 4.5 miles) and Hildenborough (about 5.3 miles), which lies a little further up the same line, to London Charing Cross and Cannon Street from 42 minutes (Hildenborough to London).
Communications: The A21 is accessible at Tonbridge and links to the M25 and thereby to the national motorway network, Heathrow and Gatwick airports, the channel ports and Channel Tunnel Terminus.

Copse View is a deceptively spacious family house constructed about 13 years ago in this tucked-away corner of the popular village of Speldhurst. Contemporary kitchen and bathroom fittings combine with the use of a limited colour palette and natural finishes to give a sense of calm, whilst bifold doors to the rear with a glazed roof above, a glass balustrade to the main staircase and a galleried lightwell between the landing and reception room maximise the flow of natural light to the interior. Further points of note include:
- stunning sitting room with engineered wood flooring, a part-glazed roof and with bifold doors across the rear giving access to the garden terrace. Open archways lead from the sitting room, one through to the dining room, with glazing to the roof and bifold doors to the garden, and one through to the kitchen, in all creating a light and generous area for entertaining with a delightful outlook over the garden;
- kitchen with stone flooring, fitted wall and base units under granite-covered worktops and integrated appliances including a microwave and dishwasher. Space for a range-style cooker with extractor over and an American-style fridge/freezer;
- 2 bedrooms with French doors onto a sheltered balcony overlooking the garden, with distant views glimpsed through the trees;
- further upper ground floor bedroom currently fitted out as a dressing room;
- a first floor double bedroom with an en suite shower room completes the accommodation.
Copse View is approached over a shared driveway leading from Furzefield Avenue to a gravelled parking area in front of the integral garage. Areas of lawn to either side of the driveway, interspersed with specimen trees, add colour and interest and mature shrubs provide screening to the east.
A large paved terrace with central water feature spans across the entire width of the back of the house, accessed through bifold doors from the sitting and dining rooms and providing an area ideal for outdoor living and entertaining. The enclosed rear garden is laid to lawn with mature deciduous woodland beyond the northern boundary, which is formed of stock fencing. The remaining boundaries are a combination of close-boarded and stock fencing, with some mixed mature hedging, bamboo and trees to the eastern boundary.
Services: Mains gas-fired central heating. Mains water, electricity and drainage.
