The entrance door is neatly positioned to the side of the house, with a wooden gate beyond for useful rear garden access.

Across the hallway is the dining room with its wooden flooring, exposed brick chimney breast and large window offering a perfect dining experience.

Conveniently placed behind is the bright kitchen. There are plenty of cream units and wooden work tops, space and plumbing for a washing machine, with an integrated oven, fridge/freezer, slimline dishwasher and four ring gas hob and overhead extractor completing the room. The room feels very light with a window over its sink, a part glazed door at the side and light streaming in from the French doors in the boot room at the rear.

The boot room has plenty of space for coats and shoes, a useful guest cloakroom to the side, and doors opening onto the garden terrace.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms, all of which have large windows bringing in lots of natural light.

In the middle is the family bathroom with honey coloured tiling panelling the bath and topping the vanity unit, which has lighting above. A large mirror frames the wall and open shelving neatly houses towels.

A further flight of stairs leads up to the second floor and the principal bedroom. It is a calming space with rooftop views and the luxury of a modern en-suite.

Outside to the rear is a pretty garden with bursts of colour rising from its trees, shrubs and well stocked flower beds which edge the lawn. There is a paved terrace at the rear of the house, perfect for summer dining, with a pergola to the side clad in wisteria to add interest and charm. A block brick pathway meanders to the rear where there is a decked terrace and a summer house. It is fully enclosed, making it a safe sanctuary for children and pets, and its well thought out planting offers privacy and interest.

This bright, spacious home is in a sought-after location with all your first-class schooling, shops 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 north 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. Edward Street 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.
