Cheyne House, Langton Green
Cheyne House is a stylish and beautifully presented character home in a tucked away position, just two miles from the centre of Tunbridge Wells. Believed to have been built circa 1923, the five-bedroom well-loved family home is a wonderful mix of classic period character, brought up to date by the current owners to provide stylish and adaptable accommodation.
Traditional-style electric entrance gates from the road lead to a long tree-lined driveway, with ample parking and turning space, together with a detached garage at the end and a path leading to a flagstone forecourt and an attractive canopied entrance.
The presentation throughout is modern, with a crisp neutral colour scheme and quality fixtures and fittings including underfloor heating, a pressurized hot water system and CAT5 cabling. The rooms are light and spacious, enhanced by high ceilings and large windows, with most enjoying an outlook over the garden.
An open plan bespoke fitted kitchen/breakfast room, complete with an Aga, opens through to a large hard wood conservatory to the rear, where the exceptional garden can be enjoyed the whole year round.
The reception rooms are characterful and comfortable, with a lovely outlook to the front through bay windows, an open fireplace in the snug, a contemporary wall-mounted gas fire in the sitting room and a separate study providing ample space for home working.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor, including a generously proportioned principal suite with bath/shower room and a walk-in dressing room, and a guest bedroom tucked away at the back with a stylish en suite bathroom. The second floor provides excellent further private space with a large bedroom, shower room, fitted cupboards and an alcove suitable for use as a small study or possibly a kitchenette.
A part-walled garden is a wonderful feature of the property, offering a lovely, sheltered space with a high degree of privacy, surrounding the house to all sides with mixed hedging and trees to the boundaries.
To the rear is a westerly aspect, with clipped box hedging and established trees and shrubs providing year-round colour, areas of lawn, a parterre-style red brick terrace and a large, decked swimming pool area accessible from the conservatory, providing a wonderful space for entertaining. The area to the front has a park-like feel with a stunning copper beech tree and large, level lawn.
Cheyne House is two miles west of Tunbridge Wells in the village of Langton Green, which lies within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Surrounded by countryside and with an active village community of around 2,500 people, the village has amenities including a general store/service station, village hall, restaurants, bakery, and sports clubs including cricket and football. The Hare pub on the village green and the village primary school, which is rated ‘Outstanding’ are a short walk away, with Holmewood House Preparatory School approximately half a mile across the road.
Charles Lang of Savills says: “Cheyne House is a hidden gem. This charming home with superb gardens is just two miles from Tunbridge Wells town centre and a few minutes’ walk from local amenities. It’s ideal for families with all the mod cons and convenience, or equally for downsizers wanting a village community.”
