Apartments in this imposing villa available to over-55s
This grand Victorian villa is the centrepiece of Willicombe Park, a retirement village at Tunbridge Wells, which opened in 2000. Resale apartments now become available from time to time, as well as bungalows and cottages in the four-acre grounds. When Audley Retirement Villages took over the estate, its varied history had seen it turn from a private residence for a renowned architect to a children’s nursery. The Audley Club within Willicombe House now includes a health and wellbeing centre, swimming pool, treatment rooms, bar/bistro and restaurant. Kent-born chief executive, Nick Sanderson said sympathetic property restoration was an important part of his business ethos and was proving a success with the over-55s. He said: “Our villages in Kent showcase the very best of luxury retirement living and are important to our portfolio.” Prices at Willicombe Park start at £220,000 and homes are for over-55s only.
