Tunbridge Wells is the only spa town in the Southeast of England, with elegant architecture and a variety of cultural, entertainment and shopping attractions, including the Chalybeate Spring, two theatres, cafés and restaurants and a mixture of national multiple retailers and independent shops.

Royal Chase is located on the popular West side of town, in close proximity to the Common, and the local amenities on offer, from restaurants and bars to cobblers and general stores, on nearby Mount Ephraim. The main shopping centre lies under a quarter of a mile away and the High Street and mainline stations are within 0.7 miles.

State and private schools: The Skinners' School (about 0.6 miles), Tunbridge Wells Girls' Grammar (about 0.8 miles) and Bennett Memorial Diocesan (about 0.7 miles), Tunbridge Wells Boys' Grammar and St Gregory's (about 1.2 and 1.5 miles respectively), Rose Hill preparatory school and Bishops Down Primary School (both within a mile).

Mainline rail: Tunbridge Wells (about 0.7 miles), with fast and frequent services to London Charing Cross (via London Bridge and Waterloo East) and Cannon Street with journey times from 50 minutes.

Communications: The A26 joins the A21 just North of the town, linking through to the M25 (junction 5) London orbital motorway and thereby to the national motorway network, and to the south coast. Gatwick Airport is about 24 miles to the West, accessible via the motorway or the A264.

4 Royal Chase was designed and constructed in the mid-1970s by the current owner to provide a bespoke family home. Reclaimed period features, including timber-framed sash windows and panelled wood internal doors, lend character to the well-proportioned rooms which offer a flexible ground floor layout well-suited to modern family life. The property now offers an opportunity to enhance the accommodation to suit individual requirements. Further points of note include:

- dining room, partly open plan to the kitchen, with tall sash windows giving a lovely outlook to the rear garden;
- fitted kitchen with a half-glazed door opening out to the side garden terrace and a window overlooking the rear garden. Double doors to a walk-in larder/utility room with space and plumbing for laundry appliances;

Outside
The property is approached from the road over a driveway providing off-street parking.

The Southwest-facing rear garden is of a good size for a town property, its aspect ensuring that it is in full sun for much of the summer day, and comprises a level area of lawn bordered to the South and West by mature evergreen shrubs and trees
