Property description

A beautifully presented Grade II listed first floor apartment with splendid views amid circa 28 acres of shared grounds * Cranbrook School catchment area *

Built in 1855 in the style of a French Gothic chateau by Edward Loyd, the British banker who co-founded Natwest Bank, Lillesden House has been superbly converted to provide high specification accommodation. A former girls' school, each of the apartments located in the property is named after the Head Girls who attended the school and whose names are located on the boards still on display in the communal entrance hall.

Accessed by a wide sweeping staircase rising from the ground floor, The Spence displays high ceilings and full height windows throughout allowing natural light to flood in, creating a light, bright and airy environment. The apartment is beautifully decorated to an extremely high standard with under floor heating throughout - you can literally move straight in.
