5 bedroom detached house for saleUpper Dunstan Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent
The clever design, by the architect Simon Feneley, creates an elegant and engaging home comprising a central single-storey living area bookended by two bedroom wings. This sensitive use of form, along with the use of slender, long-format pale bricks and white mortar, ensures that the house sits well in a street of period properties.
Internally, a polished concrete floor flows through the ground floor. A substantial double-height entrance leads to a large, bright kitchen / dining room. Off this space is a more intimate snug with a wood burning stove. The In-Toto kitchen consists of minimal white cupboards with a central island from where a window opens out onto a small herb garden, and an adjoining WC and utility room offers additional storage. Uniting the kitchen to the garden and terrace are large Velfac glass windows and sliding doors. The master bedroom (with en suite shower room) overlooks the garden from the ground floor.
Two sculptural oiled-oak staircases lead to the vaulted ceilinged bedroom wings on the first floor. Each wing has two bedrooms with a family bathroom at one end (where an expansive skylight over a bath provides beautiful views of the sky) and a shower room at the other. The first floor offers generous in built storage, and the bedroom window frames have been extended with additional desk-space.
There is a garage (with more storage in the roof) and a private drive with space to park two cars.
Tunbridge Wells is one of the most popular towns in the South East, thanks to its historic architecture, ample green spaces, outstanding schools and excellent links to London. There are a wide range of restaurants, theatres, coffee shops and supermarkets. There are also many highly regarded state and private schools in the Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge area including Kent Grammar Schools (The Skinners School and Tunbridge Wells Girls' Grammar School are both under 0.5 miles away) and Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys and St. John's Primary School are also close by.
High Brooms railway station is just 0.7 miles away and Tunbridge Wells Central Station is 1.4 miles away, both offering services to London (via London Bridge) to Charing Cross, London Waterloo East and Cannon Street, with journey times from 45 minutes.
The M25 can be accessed via the A21 just North of Tunbridge Wells linking to other motorway networks and providing access to Gatwick and Heathrow Airports.
The property has a ten year BuildCare warranty.
