Screened by neat hedging this beautiful home's corner position and wrap around garden delivers plenty of kerb appeal.
The layout and flow of the house is fabulous with rooms opening off the spacious hallway at every angle. Its warm oak flooring seamlessly connects the ground floor rooms, increasing the sense of space and light.
First on the right is the kitchen/dining room, its French doors flooding the space with light and giving glorious front garden views as you dine. It has a charming country kitchen feel and is well equipped with an Aga and a separate pyrolytic (self cleaning) fan oven. Beautiful Quartz counter tops compliment the shaker style cabinets and the wall units are glazed adding yet more character.
A useful utility room to the rear, with space and plumbing for appliances and open wooden shelving, also has access into the rear garden.
Returning to the hallway and opposite is bedroom two with shuttered dual aspect windows and a pretty period fireplace. It is a generous double with a fitted cupboard for storage.
Next door is the stylish living room which is a welcoming space with wooden flooring, smart shuttered window and a wood burning stove adding character and warmth in the colder months. Shuttered French doors open from a bay into the side garden.
Beyond is bedroom three which is currently set up as a home office, but it would also make a good playroom, making it a very versatile space.
Along the hallway is the modern bathroom with slate flooring which also encloses the bath, adding a contemporary feel to the bright room.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor with a ceiling Velux, the principal bedroom is vast and welcoming. More warm wooden flooring contrasts beautifully with the neutral walls and there is a double fitted wardrobe, open shelving and an eaves cupboard for storage.
Completing the house is a large shower room with pretty blue tiling on two walls, a double shower cubicle and underfloor heated tiled flooring.
Outside there are paved terraces at the front and the rear, perfect for alfresco dining. It is a sunny west facing garden with an area of lawn at the rear and pretty decorative stocked beds to the front and side. There is a wooden shed and a brick storeroom for garden equipment and a pretty summer house for relaxing. The garden is fully enclosed and secure with a mix of perimeter hedging and close boarded fencing, making it ideal for kids and pets. There is also an off street block brick parking space which is accessible from the garden and the street.
This bright, immaculate home is in a sought after location with all your first-class schooling and transport needs on your doorstep, making it the perfect home. A must see!

Area Information: Southborough, Tunbridge Wells
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 Doric Avenue'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.
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. Doric Avenue 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 in 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, which is the easiest to get to from Newhaven, 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.
