10 Nevill Park is an attractive Victorian villa set within this prestigious private park lying on the western fringes of the Tunbridge Wells Conservation Area. The property enjoys delightful southerly views across the valley towards Hungershall Park and Broadwater Down. The High Street, the historic Pantiles and the mainline station are about a mile away, accessible by foot across the Common, and there is a good choice of schools in the vicinity.

Benefitting from the elegant proportions typical of houses of this period, with high ceilings and generous room sizes, 10 Nevill Park has been sympathetically and imaginatively updated by the current owners to create a stylish and comfortable family home. Retained character features include timber-framed sash windows, moulded covings and architraves, ceiling roses, picture rails and numerous fireplaces. The house is well set back from the road with mature front and rear gardens offering a charming outlook from all principal rooms, those on the front elevation enjoying more distant views across the parkland. Further points of note include:
• porticoed entrance porch leading to an L-shaped reception hall with wood flooring, a wide staircase with ornate wrought iron balusters leading to the first floor and a further door out to the rear of the property;
• double drawing room with attractive fireplaces to either end and wide windows, one a bay, with working folding shutters framing a wonderful view over the terrace and garden;
• stunning, light and spacious dining room, leading off the drawing room and kitchen, with tall sash windows to the South and West, a lantern rooflight and double French doors to the terrace;
• family room with a stone fireplace, a square bay window with a window seat and a door to the kitchen;
• kitchen fitted with painted wood units under green limestone worktops, an island unit with woodblock top and a two-oven gas-fired Aga supplemented by an integrated electric oven and ceramic hob. Doors out to the side hall and rear;
• dual-aspect master bedroom suite with a lovely southerly view to the front, a fitted dressing area, a cloakroom and a bathroom incorporating a copper slipper bath with lion's head tap and a separate shower;
• three further double bedrooms, one en suite and two sharing a Jack-and-Jill shower room, and a single bedroom with en suite shower room complete the principal accommodation.

Lower ground floor:
The lower ground floor is divided into two distinct areas, each with the benefit of its own entrance via steps from the driveway. A staircase leads down from the reception hall to the main area which is currently used as a games room and gym with its own kitchenette and cloakroom. A wine cellar and boiler/store room offer supplementary storage space and a secondary staircase rises from here to the side hall to the rear of the kitchen.

The second area is arranged as a one-bedroom apartment with an en suite shower room and open plan reception room/kitchen, ideal for use by extended family or live-in staff.

Outside
The property is approached from Nevill Park through electrically-operated painted timber gates, the driveway passing the side of the house to open out into parking and turning areas behind the house and in front of the detached garage.

The attractive mature front garden comprises a level area of lawn with mixed borders planted for architectural form and seasonal colour and interest. A majestic Cedar of Lebanon creates a shady corner and enhances the sense of maturity, with added interest provided by specimen trees including palms and tree ferns. Stone steps lead up to a balustraded flagstone terrace which spans the front of the house offering a perfect spot for outdoor living and entertaining and enjoyment of the outlook across the parkland.

The paving continues round the western elevation opening up to form a rose garden and parking area to the rear. The garden slopes up towards the rear boundary, with stone and timber steps leading to a level area of lawn beyond which lies the tennis court.

Services: Mains gas-fired central heating. Mains water, electricity and drainage.
