Because who wouldn’t want to live in a chocolate factory? This new development by Sunningdale House is a real treat

Where is it located? 

In Quarry Road, Tunbridge Wells within the exclusive TN1 postcode, on the old factory site of Charbonnel et Walker, Britain’s oldest chocolatier. It’s just under a mile from the mainline railway station, plus Royal Victoria Place and the town centre are under half a mile away with myriad shops and eateries.

How much? 

Prices range from £315,000 to the most expensive penthouses. The 35 apartments are a blend of one, two and three bedrooms.

What makes it special? 

The residence at TN1 is a really exciting development, breathing new urban life into the area. With cutting edge design, each apartment enjoys external space and plenty of light. This is new apartment living, the 2022 way.

What influenced the design? 

We pride ourselves on creating great homes in disused urban spaces. The design derived from the manufacturing history, blending the old factory site of Charbonnel et Walker and our keen desire to create a positive regeneration of the iconic site; eye-catching, individual, but not overstated with mixed materials creating a stunning fascia. Charbonnel et Walker is such an iconic British luxury brand it was important to ensure the design encompassed classic aspects too.

What does it come with? 

Each apartment style is individual. They all have a differing view and dimension. The living spaces are truly exceptional with huge windows, terraces and balconies to enjoy. They also benefit from secure video entry, external car charging, mechanical heat recovery, and electric underfloor heating. We believe when we sell a home it should be ready to move in to. We include luxury flooring and appliances as standard.

Can you tell us about the outdoor space? 

The apartments benefit from outside space, many with double balconies, plus the upper floors have the most amazing wraparound terraces and roof gardens – they really are something to behold!
