Set back from its tree lined road by a low brick wall, this home's handsome red brick exterior and pretty bay window provides plenty of kerb appeal.

An entrance door to the side welcomes you into this immaculately presented house which the current owners have sensitively renovated and modernised to create a bright, stylish home.

To your left, at the front of the house, is the spacious living room. It is flooded with light from the generous bay window and has plenty of room for deep sofas. A feature chimney breast offers the opportunity to install a working fire.

Towards the rear is the fantastic kitchen/dining room whose recent renovation has created an excellent cooking, dining, and entertaining space. It is beautifully finished with Wren cabinets, integrated appliances, and a long island topped with Quartz with a breakfast bar overhang for four bar stools. A glass skylight and rear glazed doors flood the room with light and garden views.

In the dining area there is ample room for a table and chairs and a stylish run of under stair cupboards provides a clever use of space, including a utility cupboard with plumbing and space for a washing machine.

Climbing the stairs to the first-floor split landing there are two double bedrooms, both with graceful proportions that give a very tranquil feeling. The principal bedroom has an over stair open wardrobe space with a hanging rail and shelving.

The spacious bathroom at the end of the landing has a large window bringing in lots of natural light. There is a shower over the bath and a vanity unit, with storage below the wash hand basin.

Outside to the rear is an enclosed garden with an area of lawn and a gravelled terrace next to the house, perfect for relaxing in the summer months. It also benefits from front street access and a fantastic garden studio with a stylish office space on one side and plenty of garden storage space on the other.

Chichester Road is superbly located for a host of popular nurseries, primary, secondary and grammar schools. The popular Sussex Road Primary School is opposite. It is also close to all of Tonbridge's local amenities and the mainline railway station making it well served for leisure facilities and transport links.

This property offers a well-designed and stylish interior that has sympathetically transformed a Victorian property into a sophisticated contemporary home. A must see!
