Sitting elevated in its prized ridge position this fantastic home is surrounded by greenery with far reaching views across the Weald.
It has been beautifully renovated to create an elegant, refined, light filled interior that certainly delivers a family friendly contemporary style of living.
As you step into the bright hallway, a useful guest cloakroom to the left, the warm wooden flooring stretches seamlessly into the kitchen beyond creating a real sense of flow and balance.
The incredible open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining room that makes up most of the back of the ground floor delivers wonderful cooking facilities with contrasting glossy cabinets, Bosch and Neff fittings and a contemporary glass splash back. For family and entertaining, there is tons of space for both dining and living. The room is flooded with light and views of the beautiful garden from the triple bi-fold doors at the rear which cleverly open to extend the living space into the garden in the warmer months. A second set of French windows open onto the terrace and garden beyond creating even more space and light while a large central island lets you chat to friends as you prepare dinner or to the children as they do their homework.
Off the kitchen to the front is a separate utility space with garden access that provides housing for appliances and a sink ideal for muddy boots or paws.
Double wooden doors at the dining end of the kitchen lead into the 2nd reception room which is currently set up as a play room creating a kids` dream space. Depending on your family needs, it could be used as a fantastic home office or alternatively as a cosy room to relax in.
Next door, the living room provides an elegant sanctuary with natural light flooding in through its large front window, framing the leafy front view.
Climbing the carpeted stairs past dual aspect windows bringing in open countryside views, the light and spacious landing has an airing cupboard, a deep storage cupboard and access to the large loft which stretches the width of the house offering great development potential.
The first floor boasts four great bedrooms. The master bedroom, with its own en suite shower room, has a pitched ceiling and a porthole window that gives the room a real sense of glamour and romance.
The generously sized contemporary family bathroom completes the first floor.
Outside the large sunny rear garden offers a high level of privacy with a paved terrace stretching the width of the kitchen/dining room, perfect for alfresco dining. Short stone steps lead you onto an expanse of lawn which is bordered on all sides by close boarded fencing fronted by mature hedging, shrubs and trees. It is fully enclosed offering a sanctuary for children whilst two wooden sheds offer great storage space. The driveway, accessed by a side gate, provides parking for several cars.
Each room of this fantastically designed home has been well thought out and sensitively planned for modern family life.
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!

Bidborough is an idyllic and pretty village in the borough of Tunbridge Wells, lying to the north of Tunbridge Wells town centre and to the south of Tonbridge town centre.
It has an active community with an historic 11th Century church, a local primary school which is ranked by Ofsted as good, a petrol station, a local convenience store and a popular recently and extensively refurbished village pub, the `Kentish Hare`.
Parish sports facilities are good, and the village boasts a tennis court, a bowls green and two recreation ground areas, which are available for cricket and five-a-side football.
The village benefits from open countryside and sprawling woodland on its doorstep but it is also popular with commuters being only 2.5 miles from Tonbridge Station with its fast and frequent access into central London in 30 minutes. It is also close to Gatwick Airport and with the A21 less than 2 miles away with access onto the M25 it provides quick road access into London too.
Excellent local independent primary schools such as The Schools at Somerhill and Hilden Grange Primary sit alongside the highly regarded village primary and the sought after girls` and boys` secondary grammar schools are also nearby. With a number of additional exceptional state secondary schools in its borough and the renowned Tonbridge and Sevenoaks Schools on its doorstep, parents are definitely spoilt for choice.
The more extensive shopping facilities in both Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells are nearby as is Tunbridge Wells` historic Pantiles which offers a vibrant al fresco café culture with independent boutiques stretching up to the old High Street.
