Behind is another generous double bedroom, enjoying garden views.
At the rear is a stylish and contemporary bathroom with shower over the bath and two windows bringing in natural light.
Opposite is the spacious living/dining room which is flooded with light from its pretty shuttered square bay window. It has plenty of room for large family sofas and a fireplace that adds character and warmth in the colder months. It is a great space for entertaining and living, with the rear of the room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen, perfect for a dining table and chairs.
The kitchen is well designed with plenty of wooden effect units topped with work surfaces which separate appliances and the window is cleverly placed above the sink, enabling you to watch the children play while you wash up.
Returning to the hallway and climbing the stairs to the first floor you reach a third bedroom and a much needed home office. There is also generous eaves storage space.
Outside there is a stylish paved terrace with beautiful stocked raised flower beds and a fitted wooden seat to enjoy summer entertaining. Paved steps lead up to a large lawned area which is fully enclosed providing a safe sanctuary for pets and children.

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 Doric Avenue, 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.
