High quality unique 5/6 bedroom 3 bathroom home sleeping 12 in bedrooms upstairs+2 on a sofa bed in 'study' downstairs

With over 3,000 sq ft, the Pump House is a unique light-filled, warm and well equipped family home on the edge of Tonbridge, with stunning countryside views and plenty of space for up to 14 guests. Accommodation is spread essentially over two floors, with the living areas on the ground floor . There are five generous bedrooms and three bathrooms on the 1st floor plus a cloakroom on the ground floor. Bedroom 2 is split level and the 'single' bed is a small double which is accessed via a fixed wooden ladder. This room would not be suitable for very young children as there is no hand rail on the 'ladder'. Due to the unique nature of the house there are 5 steps up to 3 of the bedrooms. All bed linen is 100% cotton.

On the ground floor there is a large drawing room with an open fire and baby grand piano, a study with double sofa bed to accommodate the '+2', and a large dining hall with dining table. The magnificent kitchen is equipped with 2 dishwashers, a wine cooler fridge and a large American style fridge freezer with filtered water and ice dispenser. Double doors open to the secluded garden which is surrounded by fields. There is also a raised dining area in the kitchen overlooking the garden and a generous utility with yet another fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is underfloor heating throughout the property.

The garden sits in a plot of just under 2 acres with a large lawn perfect for football or croquet. It is surrounded by fields. The house is approached via 1/4 mile of track.

The South East England region

Tonbridge is well-known for its culture and heritage, together with the Castle and church, the River Medway, a celebrated public School, fine traditions of sport and a variety of shopping facilities - all making Tonbridge a town with something for all ages and interests. Attractive timber framed buildings as well as fine 18th Century weather-boarded and tiled houses can be found dotted throughout the town including some splendid buildings at the famous Tonbridge Boys School.


Located in an area with a rich cultural history and spectacular scenery there are castles (Hever, Chiddingstone, Scotney & Leeds), stately homes (Penshurst place, Ightham Mote), gardens (Sissinghurst & Great Dixter), country walks from the house, vineyards (Chapel down, Biddenden) and much more, all within easy reach. You could go into London to see the sights and catch a West End show. London is just 35 minutes direct from nearby Tonbridge Station. Go shopping in the beautiful Royal Tunbridge Wells just 10 minutes drive or visit the comprehensive Blue Water shopping centre.

You are perfectly positioned for enjoying all this and more if you can bear to venture beyond the comfort of this house.
