This attractive detached home is tucked behind a beautiful curved wall with impressive stone columns marking the opening to its tranquil leafy road setting.
A smart driveway provides off street parking for 3 to 4 cars whilst immaculate hedging encloses a pretty front garden and frames the front of the house.
A garage sits neatly to the left of the house offering much needed storage and with the ample driveway there is great potential to extend above or to the side of it.
An exterior of brick and red hung tiles, crisp white windows and a pitched porch welcomes you into the wide hallway with a useful guest cloakroom on the left, large enough to house an appliance.
The generous size of the house is immediately apparent, with bright reception rooms providing plenty of versatile living space.
Straight ahead is the spacious sitting room, its rear French windows flooding the room with light and bringing views of the pretty garden in. It is plenty big enough for large family sofas whilst a room to the left with rear garden access could be used as either a large home office or a play room, whichever suits your needs.
Glazed doors to the right of the living room lead into the dining room which has a useful serving hatch linking it with the kitchen at the front.
To the rear is the conservatory which is wonderfully bright due to its expanse of windows and glazed roof, letting you sit in the sun and relax whilst keeping an eye on the children playing in the garden.
The fitted kitchen delivers wonderful cooking facilities with a range of pale blue eye and base level cupboards topped with contrasting white work tops. A stable door to the side and a large front window overlooking the street draw in lots of natural light making it a bright and welcoming space.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are currently three bedrooms, two of which are generously sized doubles, all with fitted cupboards and flooded with light from their pretty windows.
The master bedroom currently has a stylish en-suite with a double walk in shower cubicle and a wall of fitted wardrobes. However, this room would also make a perfect nursery, accessed off the bedroom, or it can easily be converted back into a bedroom in its own right.
The family bathroom completes the first floor.
Outside the enclosed rear garden is laid mainly to lawn with an expanse of stone terracing that curves around the back of the house, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining.
This substantial family home, set on a popular residential cul-de-sac only a short walk from local shops, sought after schools and excellent transport links, is ideal for a growing family. A must see!

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 Park House Garden`s 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.
Even closer to Park House Gardens, is the open green space of the Ridgeway Playing Fields which provide lots of room for kids to play, games of football and dog walking.
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. Park House Gardens is also within the catchment areas for the 5 highly regarded and sought after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.
