About this property

TENURE: Freehold

An impressive detached residence thoughtfully improved and modernised by the current owners in recent times. The property enjoys a quiet and secluded setting on this highly regarded private road, with access to 7 acres of private parkland reserved exclusively for residents’ use, and a short walk from the town centre and station.

1 Lake Road is instantly recognisable thanks to its delightful cornflower blue rendered and part tile hung elevations, which provide a pretty first impression to a beautifully appointed family home that has been extensively updated.

The attractive property was constructed around 1928 and has a number of character features, such as an arched open porch, high ceilings and bay windows. The interiors have been updated to a high standard with a neutral colour scheme that enhances the feeling of light and space. On the ground floor, the entrance hall leads to an 18ft triple aspect sitting room with fabulous fireplace and feature beams, family room and excellent kitchen/breakfast room with double doors opening directly to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a great selection of wall and base units including a large quartz island, and includes integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher, ovens and Insinkerator system. There is also a large matching utility room with space for laundry machines.

The first floor comprises a principal bedroom with large luxury en suite bathroom, a guest bedroom with en suite shower room, three further double bedrooms and a superb family bathroom.

Situation
Lake Road is a highly regarded private road in a sought-after area of Tunbridge Wells, conveniently placed about 1 mile from the town centre and Royal Victoria Place shopping precinct which houses major national stores and a wide variety of individual shops. It is also walking distance to Tunbridge Wells Common and the historic Pantiles. Tunbridge Wells Girls Grammar School 1.1 miles away and the boys Grammar School is just 1.4 miles distant. Recreational amenities in the town include a sports and leisure centre, multiscreen cinema complex, theatres, two golf courses and numerous restaurants etc. Tunbridge Wells main line station is about 1.3 miles away with services to London Cannon Street/Waterloo/Charing Cross and London Bridge, and access to the A21 is just about 3 miles away for a direct route to the M25 and national motorway network.

Outside
The property is approached over a tarmac driveway leading to a detached tandem garage and parking for several vehicles. To the rear of the garage is a studio (with power) which could provide additional storage or workspace.

The gardens that wrap-around the property are well established and include sizeable areas of lawn, a wealth of plant varieties and mature trees, a patio and a decked seating area with a fire pit that’s the perfect spot for entertaining alfresco in the warmer months.

The property also has use of ‘Bishops Down Park Pleasure Ground’ - 7 acres of private parkland which is exclusively for residents of Lake Road and Bishops Down Park Road and is made up of walking paths around a central lake and pleasant lawns dotted with picnic benches.
