Created by Beechcroft’s Special Projects team, Redcliffe Place is tucked away off Frant Road, less than a mile from the Pantiles and the heart of Tunbridge Wells. The development, where full-time residency is restricted to the over 18s, has proved extremely popular with downsizers and those looking for a stylish home that’s both energy-efficient and easy to maintain. Life at Redcliffe Place is relaxed: the beautifully landscaped setting is maintained by an on-site Estate Manager who handles the day-to-day administration of the development, takes care of the maintenance and keeps an eye on properties whilst owners are away.
Located on the second floor with lift access and priced at £650,000, the final three-bedroom apartment provides an abundance of carefully designed living space. The hallway leads to a dining/hall at the heart of the apartment – sufficiently spacious to accommodate a dining table or ideal for use as an additional reception room. A Juliet balcony with glazed doors ensures the impressive drawing room is both light and airy – and the kitchen, just off the drawing room, features stylish cabinets and a full complement of integrated appliances.
The washing machine/tumble dryer are tucked away in a utility room, just off the dining/hall – ensuring the laundry can be kept out of sight of guests. The master bedroom opens onto the private balcony and the en-suite bathroom, with both bath and shower, is accessed through a dressing room, lined with fitted wardrobes. In addition to two further bedrooms, one of which would be ideal for use as a study, there’s a separate shower room.
“Our first impression was that the building was very attractive – and compact. We didn’t want to live in a large development. We had previously viewed another apartment scheme in Tunbridge Wells but it was like a hotel with long corridors and lots of doors. In fact, we liked Redcliffe Place so much that we reserved an apartment on our very first visit. We chose a three-bedroom apartment that has a lovely layout and a private balcony overlooking the communal gardens. ”
"The size of the apartment is ideal and our new home is surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds and mature trees – and the best thing is that we don’t have to maintain them. Downsizing also means having a home that’s easier to manage and more energy-efficient than our previous home and that is very important to us."
