Springwood Hall is part of an exclusive gated development of purpose built apartments and detached mansions built in a Victorian style by Honeygrove in the late 1990s.
This stunning apartment, which was the show home for the building, is set over 2 floors with the majority of the accommodation easily accessible from ground level. It was purchased from new by the current owner and is presented in immaculate condition throughout. It offers bright and spacious accommodation and benefits from high ceilings together with a wealth of period style detailing including ceiling roses, elegant architraves and panelling.
The property is entered via a private entrance which opens out into a grand entrance hall. The main reception room can be found straight ahead through full height double doors. It is over 25ft in length with an attractive carved stone fireplace providing a lovely focal point to the room. Two sets of French doors bathe the room in natural light and open out onto the fantastic private balcony. An archway leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room which has been left open to the reception room providing a nice semi-open plan feel. The kitchen is fitted with a range of shaker style wall and base units with granite worksurfaces and integrated appliances including dishwasher and ceramic hob. The master bedroom located at the front of the apartment is generously sized with a line of fitted wardrobes and an elegant en-suite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms, both of which have en-suites and fitted wardrobes and an additional WC. There are also numerous built in cupboards throughout the apartment providing lots of useful storage space.
The property is share of freehold with the majority of a 999 year lease remaining. A fulltime estate manager based on site looks after the development and is extremely accommodating and helpful to the needs of the residents and their guests.
Springwood Park Estate is approached via an impressive gated entrance. As you drive through the development Springwood Hall can be found on the left hand side through a further set of automated gates. A gravel driveway leads to the front of the building where there is a designated parking space and further guest parking. The apartment benefits from two single garages both with automatic up and over doors and one of which has a fully boarded loft space.
To the rear of the building are attractive communal grounds of approximately 4 acres that are beautifully kept with a tennis court available for the enjoyment of the residents. In addition to the gardens there is a wonderful private balcony accessed from the main reception room which truly boasts the best view of the grounds. It is south facing and offers a great spot for al fresco entertaining or simply a relaxing place to soak up the sunshine.
The property is situated within the exclusive and prestigious private Springwood Park development which lies between the village of Shipbourne 1.7 miles away
with its fantastic pub The Chaser and weekly award winning Farmers' Market and the larger town of Tonbridge 2.5 miles away.
