DESCRIPTIONThe White House is a truly unique property, occupying a rare and enviable setting within the Culverden Down area of Tunbridge Wells. Forming what was originally part of the Great Culverden estate, the rear of the property is believed to date from 1740, with additions to enlarge and improve the property in 1800 and 1840 and then more recently in 2009 by the current owners. The result is a wonderfully elegant property, which sits proudly at the end of a private drive. One of the most successful aspects of this house is its position: its side-on aspect gives it a wonderful sense of peace and seclusion, with south facing views across the grounds.
ACCOMMODATIONThe accommodation within does not disappoint. All of the main reception rooms are bursting with period charm, which include tall Georgian windows, fireplaces and beautiful cornicing. The appeal of these rooms is further enhanced by their southerly aspect, with the generous windows providing wonderful views over the landscaped grounds and tennis court. The current owners have created a valuable additional home office space, with vaulted ceiling, separate entrance and its own WC. This room could easily serve a multitude of other functions. The kitchen to the rear of the property is a large and spacious area, with plenty of room for casual dining and with easy access to the utility room, cellar and rear garden. The accommodation on the first floor is extremely well appointed, with all 7 bedrooms leading from the hall landing, and with the master enjoying a small dressing area and generous en-suite bathroom. The views from this room are particularly lovely and its southerly aspect means that again it is flooded with light. Three other bedrooms have the same southerly aspect.
OUTSIDEThe White House enjoys an enviable position, sitting comfortably at the end of a private drive. The grounds extend to 1.25 acres and include expanses of lawn, mature shrubs and trees, an orchard and fruit garden. There is also a tennis court, the surface of which has recently been renewed. The garage block has ample space for three cars as well as garden equipment, and there is also a summer house and children’s Wendy house. The privacy, seclusion and peace that the gardens afford, despite their central location, is very unique.
LOCATIONThe White House is situated just off Culverden Down, an area on the western side of Tunbridge Wells which is popular with families and professionals alike. There are excellent schooling options in the area, within both the state and independent sectors, including those in the sought-after Kent grammar system. The mainline station offers a fast and frequent service into Central London. Tunbridge Wells itself boasts excellent commercial and leisure facilities with well-regarded restaurants and excellent shopping opportunities. The impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is 30 miles distant and, if you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns of Rye, Eastbourne and Brighton are just 30 miles to the south.
