A Tudor-inspired property with a front door dating back eight centuries

THE PROPERTY: This seven-bedroom, Tudor-style home has a front door dating back eight centuries, having once been part of a local church.

THE LOCATION: The home is situated less than a mile from Tunbridge Wells rail station and close to the Pantiles, a Georgian colonnade lined with art galleries, antique shops and boutiques.

In addition to the large living and entertaining spaces, there is a striking galleried landing with high, vaulted ceilings, a kitchen with an Aga oven, a home theatre with surround sound and, on the top level, a games room. There is also a self-contained annexe that would make an ideal residence for guests or an au pair.
