Elegant period villa
An impressive period villa with far-reaching views in a sought-after, private park setting has come to the market through Savills.
6 Nevill Park is an elegantly proportioned, attached villa which offers the best of country living with the convenience of being situated within the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells and only 35 miles from central London.
The private park setting brings seclusion and privacy, while the elevated position affords spectacular southerly views, over the parkland and the beautiful countryside of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Ashdown Forest beyond.
The sandstone and yellow brick main elevations of number 6, together with twin-bay frontages at ground and first floor levels, give the property a timeless grace.
The extensive parkland is a natural habitat for a variety of wildlife, while Tunbridge Wells and Rusthall Commons, 250 acres of wood and heathland, are accessible about 500m to the east, at the end of the estate’s private road. The town’s famous Pantiles area is about 0.7 miles to the south, while its mainline railway station and High Street are just over a mile away.
The original architect ensured the design of the property made the most of the stunning views to the south. All main reception rooms and bedrooms, a vaulted central hallway at ground level and a Juliet balcony were positioned accordingly, with these areas benefitting from very wide and tall sash windows, or French doors.
All rooms are generously proportioned, with ceiling heights reaching up to 11’ 6’’ and featuring extensive period detailing such as window shutters, high skirting, decorative architraves and surrounds, picture rails and intricate ceiling moldings.
Natural light flows throughout the property and on ground floor level a vaulted central hallway serves the three formal reception rooms, the kitchen/diner and the main entrance. The property’s current configuration extends to seven bedrooms, however a gym at second floor level could be converted into a bedroom if required.
The lower ground floor has its own separate access and is currently used as a large home office suite. This space would work equally well as an annex or as a family room.
Robert Jacobs of Savills Tunbridge Wells said: “6 Nevill Park is a superbly presented villa set in a commanding position within one of the region’s most prestigious private parks, offering the best of countryside living yet in a convenient position in the heart of the town.
“Royal Tunbridge Wells is a very popular place to live and benefits from good road connections, convenient train commuting to London, many excellent state, grammar and private schools in the vicinity, and an enviable setting surrounded by the Kent and East Sussex countryside. The town has a variety of cultural, entertainment and shopping attractions, including The Pantiles, with its elegant and historic colonnaded walkway full of restaurants, cafes and artisan shops.”
6 Nevill Park is being marketed by Savills with a guide price of £3,250,000.
