Flexford is an outstanding village house right in the heart of Speldhurst village surrounded by the High Weald AONB, with attractive established gardens. This generously proportioned property has been subject to an extensive renovation in 2016, extending and improving the layout to create a spacious and well-planned family home perfectly configured for entertaining. Now presented in a symmetrical double-fronted style which is particularly pleasing to the eye, the property features all the modern conveniences desired to create a stylish residence that the new owner will be proud to show off. The surrounding grounds have been expansively landscaped while internally the property now boasts bifold doors to the rear, high specification bathrooms and a stunning contemporary kitchen. The modern build is spacious with accommodation arranged over three floors and extending to 3,873 square feet. A highlight of the property is the generous proportions of the internal accommodation, with high ceilings and a feeling of light and space throughout enhanced by the thoughtfully considered décor. The ground floor comprises a long entrance hall leading to a wonderful double aspect drawing room, a separate sitting room with wood burning stove and a beautifully appointed kitchen/dining/family room with a large island forming the central point. Luxury materials including granite work surfaces and wooden units add contrast, while a magnificent range cooker is a true statement piece. The ground floor also features a utility room with laundry chute, a study area, formal entrance porch and a cloakroom. The upper floors are dedicated to sleeping and office space, with a second study area situated on the second floor providing the ideal room for a home office, away from the bustle of the rest of the house. The principal bedroom is situated to the rear of the house and is a particularly generous bedroom, having stylish wardrobes, vaulted ceiling, a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden and a luxury en suite bathroom. There are a further five double bedrooms – three with en suite facilities – and a family bathroom. An additional benefit is a storage room on the second floor, accessed via a loft hatch and ladder, which has been carpeted and is fitted with Velux windows.
Speldhurst is one of the most highly regarded villages in the Tunbridge Wells area surrounded by beautiful countryside and with a fine church, historic pub, community-run post office store and a sought after primary school. The house is set near the centre in a quiet no-through road and faces West at the rear, where there are views towards the Kent countryside. Nearby in Langton Green is the well known Holmewood House school and the area is renowned for excellent educational facilities for boys and girls of all ages.
Beautifully landscaped gardens surround the house, including a pretty front garden with pathway leading to the front door and lawns to the side and rear. Most notably there is a decking terrace behind the house with an inset swimming pool/hot tub with swim-jet, plus two dining areas: a paved patio adjoining the kitchen and a covered patio at the end of the pool. The gardens are mature with established shrubs and trees, which add privacy. There is a good size driveway with ample private parking for several cars and a detached garage.
