This attractive double bay fronted period home oozes Victorian charm whilst delivering a family friendly contemporary style of living.
Set back from the road by a low wall, a handsome red brick exterior and paved front garden with decorative pebbling provide plenty of kerb appeal.
The entrance door is neatly positioned to the side of the house, with a wooden gate beyond for useful rear garden access.
To the left is the charming living room, its bay window flooding the room with light. A feature fireplace frames the chimney breast and the room's generous size makes it big enough for furniture and family sofas to relax in.
Across the hallway is the dining room with a wood burning stove and large window offering a perfect dining experience.
Conveniently placed behind is the bright kitchen. There are plenty of white units and wooden work tops, space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher, an integrated oven, and four ring gas hob and overhead extractor completing the room. The room feels very light with double aspect windows and a part glazed door at the side, opening into the garden.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are two bedrooms, both generous doubles with large windows bringing in lots of natural light.
At the rear is the bathroom with honey coloured tiled flooring contrasting beautifully with the white sanitaryware and contemporary tiling. There is a panel enclosed bath and separate shower cubicle.
Outside to the rear is a pretty garden with bursts of colour rising from its stocked flower beds which edge the neat lawn. There is a paved terrace at the rear of the house, perfect for summer dining, with a pathway leading to the rear and a wooden shed for storage. It is fully enclosed, making it a safe sanctuary for children and pets, and there is a wooden gate for street access.
This immaculate 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 Hub with its new medical centre, library, theatre/hall, coffee shop, community rooms, and town council offices, together with retail space is within walking distance of Edward Street. The Yew Tree and Ridgewaye Playing Fields are also close by, with open green spaces for walking and recreational sport. There are also allotments either side of the fields allowing you to grow your own fruit and vegetables on your doorstep.
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.
