Nestled quietly in its woodland surroundings, this home enjoys the best of both worlds with local shops, excellent transport links and first-class schools on its doorstep.
The house enjoys open views of Southborough Common which is a peaceful area of outstanding natural beauty. The woodland beyond has a labyrinth of footpaths twisting and winding up behind the Church and village cricket green, which can be seen from the living room`s full height window.
The home`s striking stone exterior, high pitched roofs and mullioned windows entice you in, along a shared paved pathway to the home`s own entrance door.
The entrance hall is brightened by its tall arched window, its warm wooden flooring linking rooms seamlessly.
To the rear is the bathroom with a shower over the bath and dual aspect windows bringing in lots of natural light.
Next door the main bedroom is a restful retreat with a large window offering leafy views of the church behind.
At the front is the second bedroom which, like the first bedroom, has a fitted wardrobe.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor is the impressive open plan kitchen, living/dining room. A vaulted beamed ceiling adds a touch of glamour to this generous space, with a full height window flooding the room with sunshine and views. The dimensions of the living space cleverly define a dining and seating area with ample space for a deep sofa and a dining table and chairs.
At the far end is the kitchen/breakfast room with charming arched windows adding light and character to the space. Wall and base level cabinets house appliances and contrast beautifully with the darker granite work tops and warm wooden effect flooring.
This unique home enjoys a communal paved courtyard garden with pretty planting and wooden pergolas with climbing plants. A gated driveway houses a large wooden bin and bike storage area and offers an off street parking space for your car and guests too.
This pretty period home in a sought-after location with a popular children`s nursery on its doorstep is 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.
Like the house, Southborough Common opposite the house, is in 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. A popular children`s` nursery is within touching distance and the house 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, about a mile away, 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 35 minute journeys.
