Tangier Lane, Frant, Tunbridge Wells, Kent


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This six bedroom house, designed in the 1960s by the architect David Addey is set on an idyllic country lane north of the village of Frant, just 1.6 miles from Tunbridge Wells.

As with many Mid Century Modern houses, the house features a series of light, open plan spaces with ample glazing to the rear overlooking the extensive gardens.

The house is entered via a glazed porch leading to an entrance hall. This leads into a large open plan kitchen / dining room with an adjoining living space. The flooring is limestone and the units in the kitchen and granite and woodblock with a 4-oven oil-fired Aga. There is also a walk-in larder, a woodburning stove and wonderful glazed bi-fold doors across the kitchen / dining room and living area that open out onto the terrace and gardens.

The main reception room can also be reached from the entrance hall as well as the next door living space and stairs from here lead up to the first floor.

The first floor features six bedrooms including a master bedroom with glazed doors onto a south facing balcony and an en suite bathroom. Many of the rooms on this floor have far reaching rural views over farmland and woods. For further details see the floorplan.
The property is set back from the private country lane behind mature hedging and a driveway leads down to a parking area directly in front of the house. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with specimen trees and shrubs including cotinus, tree peony and weeping pear.

The rear garden is south facing and has been landscaped to create three main tiers. The highest tier has a terrace suitable for outdoor dining, the middle tier has large level lawn and the lowest tier features a pond, a wild garden and a summer house. A swimming pool, with removable sliding cover, can also be found on the middle tier.

David Addey was an architect with a strong local reputation before he gave up the profession in the mid-1970s to devote his full time to being an artist. He still works as a well-known painter.
