Welcome to Swaylands, an elegant collection of luxuriously-appointed two and three bedroom apartments and duplexes, located just under an hour from central London in the historic village of Penshurst, Kent. With commanding views of the Wealden countryside, 40 acres of private grounds, a tennis court and a fully-equipped gymnasium, Swaylands offers a sophisticated lifestyle in a charming setting.
Whether choosing an apartment in the beautifully restored ‘Swaylands House’, with the original house dating back to the 1840s, or one of those in the newly created ‘Woodgate Manor’ , castellated turrets, mullioned windows and arched doorways are prominent features of the extensive red brick façades. Essentially Neo-Gothic, Swaylands House also includes prominent rendered gables, the later work of architect George Devey, who pioneered the vernacular revival that eventually led to the founding of the Arts and Crafts movement a generation later.
The apartments are bright and spacious. The quality of the finish is exemplary and functionality has been carefully considered, with built-in wardrobes, underfloor gas central heating and feature fireplaces. Safety and security is paramount with new double glazed timber windows, an alarm and a video door entry system. Most apartments have exterior patio areas, roof terraces, or balconies. Allocated parking and garaging facilities are available for a small additional annual fee.
Individual apartments are finished to the highest standards, with high quality Italian designer, fully fitted kitchens incorporating granite or quartz work surfaces. Bathrooms and en suites are also at the forefront of contemporary design featuring the best, full height Porcelanosa ceramic wall and floor tiling with ‘Villeroy & Boch’ white bathroom suites.
The grounds feature what was once the biggest rock garden in Europe, a lake, a sunken walled garden and a ha-ha that allows unbroken views of the fields and countryside of the Kentish Weald beyond – truly a scene of peaceful tranquillity removed from the bustle of everyday life. Owners spanning many generations will also hold full fishing rights to the on-site river and lakes.
You may wish to act now to avoid disappointment, as the final few apartments are now available. Swaylands is only a short drive from Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks. At the time of writing there is only one apartment left in Swaylands House and three in Woodgate Manor.
