Set back from the road behind boundary walls and high hedging this beautifully presented detached family home stands proud.
A smart graveled driveway providing off street parking for several cars with a single garage sat neatly to the side, leads you up to the impressive part glazed vestibule porch.
On entering, you are immediately struck by the home`s incredible sense of light and space which has been further complimented by the owners` eye for detail. Each room is beautifully decorated in neutral shades of the Farrow and Ball colour palette delivering tranquillity and elegance in equal measure.
The entrance hallway, with a useful guest cloakroom, is bright and immaculate with the light flooding through its front windows bouncing off its limestone flooring.
The double aspect sitting room to the left is effortlessly elegant, its double-sided wood burning stove adding warmth and character in the colder months.
Behind and linked by its open fireplace is the study which is large enough to double as a home gym. Rear aspect French doors bring restful views of the garden in as you work.
Across the hallway is the family room which has its own classic fireplace and plenty of room for large sofas making the space perfect for family living and entertaining.
The well-designed kitchen at the rear offers an abundance of painted and wooden cabinetry, composite counter space and integrated appliances including an AGA oven, dishwasher and microwave. A well-defined dining space at the rear surrounded by useful bespoke cabinetry enjoys garden views from its French windows opening out onto the terrace.
Light streams onto the central staircase from a mid-landing window drawing you up to the first floor`s family bathroom and four immaculate bedrooms, three of which are generous doubles.
Straight ahead the master bedroom delivers luxury with a fitted wardrobe and a large en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom also enjoys an en-suite bathroom and an open recessed dressing area. The other two bedrooms are beautifully presented, spacious and light while a fresh family bathroom and separate cloakroom complete the floor.
Outside the large garden is laid mainly to lawn with a generous paved terrace with wooden pergola perfect for alfresco dining sitting at the rear of the house. It is fully enclosed offering a safe sanctuary for kids and dogs and a single garage and two wooden sheds deliver great storage space.
With open countryside on its doorstep and being a stone`s throw from easy access to the M25, fast rail connections to central London and first-class schools, it is the perfect home for families with professional needs. A must see!

Area Information: Southborough
Southborough lies just a couple of miles north outside the historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells with its big retail names and its Georgian colonnade, the Pantiles, offering a vibrant café culture.
It also sits just south of Tonbridge, with the A26 passing through it offering easy access to the A21 which leads to the M25.
Southborough Common, situated towards The Gables` end of the village, is a conservation area where cricket has been played for more than 200 years.
If you`re a runner, dog owner or casual walker, the woodland area of the Southborough Common, nestled behind St. Peters Church, is a very beautiful space. Ancient and young trees slope down to a stream with access to Holden Pond and Bidborough and Speldhurst villages beyond.
Excellent secondary, independent, preparatory and private schools can be found in both Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, while Southborough and Bidborough have their very own primary schools. The Gables is also within the catchment areas for the 5 highly regarded and sought after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.
The nearest mainline station to Southborough is at High Brooms with fast and frequent train services to London Charing Cross. There are also mainline stations on the same line at Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. Tonbridge Station is just over 2 miles away and with two lines passing through, it provides on average 34 trains a day from Tonbridge to London Bridge in as little as 40 minute journeys. There is also a luxury coach service, that drops up and collects a short walk from Vale Road, straight to Canary Wharf, the City, Embankment and other central London destinations. It is half the cost of rail travel enabling you to slumber or work using its Wi-Fi connectivity as you travel.
