A striking Victorian villa enjoying a prime elevated position within this prestigious private park and conservation area, with far-reaching southerly views from the majority of rooms.

The property has been re-instated into a substantial family house, having been divided into two flats in the 1970s, and now offers an opportunity to further enhance the generously-proportioned and adaptable accommodation.

An adjoining annexe was built at a later date and now forms 6a Nevill Park, under separate freehold ownership.

Tunbridge Wells town centre, the historic Pantiles and the mainline station are about a mile away, accessible by foot across the Common. The property is ideally-placed for schools, benefitting from a good choice in the vicinity, including Holmewood House preparatory school in Langton Green, Kent College at Pembury and Kent grammar schools.

Much of the parkland opposite the property is owned collectively and includes our client's shareholding. Further points of note include:
- many period features including an attractive formal entrance with a covered colonnade porch opening through decoratively-glazed doors into an inner hall way with a high cloistered ceiling and statement doors with arched detail to either end, one opening out to the terrace on the South side;
- two light-filled formal reception rooms with 14' high ceilings, decorative architraves, ceiling mouldings and cornicing, large sash windows, working folding shutters and a wonderful southerly view over the garden and beyond;
- large study to the rear with sash windows, shutters, window seat and built-in cupboards;
- stylish contemporary fitted kitchen/breakfast room with doors out to a side courtyard;
- two principle first floor bedrooms enjoying a far-reaching view through big bay windows, one with a marble fireplace with a decorative ducks nest grate and one with a contemporary en suite bathroom;
- a further double bedroom, shower room and a substantial laundry room on the first floor;
- spacious second floor comprising three double bedrooms, two with a lovely view to the South, a study/bedroom 7 and a bathroom with a contemporary white suite.
