Full description

A truly beautiful first floor apartment set within an architecturally arresting and historic building in Royal Tunbridge Wells. With many of its early Victorian period features retained and with views over Chapel Place, this gorgeous apartment is definitely one to view.

From our offices on The Pantiles, turn right onto Linden Park Road and then right again onto London Road. Go straight ahead at the mini-roundabout, continuing along London Road until you reach the next roundabout. Take the first exit and Kentish Mansions can be seen on your right hand side, next to Maynards, the interior designer shop.

One of the real highlights of this property is its fabulous location. Situated in the heart of the vibrant spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, there are restaurants, cafes, shops and beautiful parks on the doorstep. Yet once you are inside the apartment, its charming outlook over the pedestrian lane below makes it an enviably peaceful oasis. The mainline station is just a 5 minute walk away, as is the historic Pantiles with its elegant colonnaded walkway believed by many to be the most pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells to browse, shop, eat, drink and stroll. Further shopping opportunities are available at Royal Victoria Place and the award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is under 30 miles distant. The mainline station offers a fast and frequent service to Central London and if you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns are easily accessible by car or public transport.

A wonderful 1-bedroom apartment offering over 800 sq ft of light and airy living accommodation in a most fashionable area of Tunbridge Wells. Formerly the Royal Kentish Hotel, this historic building retains many beautiful period features and boasts the oldest working Otis lift in Europe. This lovely apartment has been stylishly decorated throughout and has so much to offer its new owners. The addition of a contemporary new bathroom and secondary double glazing further enhances its appeal.

The apartment's hallway enjoys beautiful wooden floorboards and a curved wall with the deep skirting boards so typical of the Victorian era. To the left is the extremely generous kitchen, with a range of painted cabinetry, wooden worktops and integrated appliances. Two steps lead up to the elegant sitting room, tastefully decorated and enjoying beautiful ceiling roses, cornicing and picture rails. The sitting room and the bedroom next door each offer over 18ft of entertaining/relaxation space and have feature fireplaces and original sash windows overlooking trendy Chapel Place and stylish Bedford Terrace beyond. The current owners have installed a contemporary new bathroom with a freestanding bath and a separate large shower cubicle. A deep storage cupboard with washer/dryer in the hallway, a spacious built-in cupboard in the bathroom and loft space above ensure there is ample storage within this lovely apartment.

The beautiful communal hallway has fabulous high ceilings, ornate cornicing and a striking chequerboard floor. A sweeping carpeted staircase leads to the upper floors, and the original Otis lift is in full working order. There is rear access directly onto Chapel Place and the building also benefits from a communal refuse room and separate bike store.
