In a marvellous location and enjoying lovely views over an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Beechwood House is a detached house of quality built to the present owner’s specification in the early 1980s. With exteriors of brick and painted render under a pitched tiled roof, close attention to quality was paid particularly with the use of mahogany for the large sash window frames, imposing staircase and galleried landing, internal doors, architraving and the majority of the floors to the ground floor.
Extending to just under 4000 square feet and positioned to take advantage of its location and the views, the house is perfect for a new family to update and upgrade the infrastructure as well as for enlargement, subject to any required planning permissions.
Reception rooms are gracious, leading off from the wide and welcoming reception hall and enjoy a fine aspect over the gardens and beyond. The library has a full complement of mahogany shelving and the farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with a range of painted wall and floor cabinets and a range cooker. The first floor is given over to a fine galleried landing and five bedrooms, which are supported by two bath/shower rooms and a second cloakroom. The master suite has fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom, whilst there are closets in the other bedrooms with one also having a hand basin.
The property is approached via a sweeping, gravel drive which leads on to a large parking area with turning circle in front of the substantial garaging. The lovely landscaped gardens back south and have been created to reflect traditional English country garden design with wide, paved terracing for outdoor entertaining. Large expanses of lawn are sweeping, herbaceous borders tell differing, colourful ‘stories’ depending on the time of year, whilst fragrant gardens give way to shrubberies and specimen trees. Elsewhere the gardens open out to an area of light woodland through which a stream meanders and orchids and bluebells appear in spring.
Beechwood House sits on the eastern edge of the sought-after and vibrant Royal Spa town of Tunbridge Wells, in a tucked away location. The centre of town and station are about a 1.1 and 1.4 miles respectively with the pretty High Street and famous Pantiles just a little further. Dunorlan Park, a spacious and elegant open space with 6 acre lake, is only about a half mile walk from the property and access to the A21 and M25 motorway network is less than a mile.
