This beautiful period house oozes Victorian charm whilst delivering a contemporary style of living.

The current owners have sympathetically renovated it to create a sophisticated and elegant space that is visually stunning.

As you step into the immaculate living room, its luxury wooden effect flooring stretches to the rear, with fitted alcove cupboards keeping the space clutter free. A wood burning stove adds charm and warmth and a mix of mid height painted panelling and deep green walls make it a welcoming, tranquil space.

Behind is the spacious dining room with a wall of bespoke full height cupboards to maximise storage, painted in a contrasting modern blue. As the room
benefits from a large window overlooking the garden and is open plan to the kitchen, it certainly delivers on space and light.

The kitchen is streamlined and stylish with Howdens's shaker cabinetry contrasting beautifully with its tiled splashback and honey coloured flooring.

Integrated appliances such as a slimline Bosch dishwasher, double Bosch ovens, one a combination microwave and grill, and full height fridge/freezer, sit alongside large pan drawers. Opposite, the sink is cleverly placed under the window and a stable door provides rear garden access.

At the rear is the modern bathroom with a shower over the bath, contemporary fittings, and a vanity unit with a wash hand basin over and storage below.

Climbing the carpeted stairs to the first floor you reach three graceful bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles with fitted wardrobes.

Outside at the rear is a fully enclosed garden offering a safe sanctuary for pets and children and plenty of room for garden furniture to enjoy lazy summer afternoon BBQs. It also benefits from front street access.

This fantastic home is flawlessly finished making it possible to move straight in and enjoy. However, there is also development opportunity with planning approved for the erection of a single storey rear extension and loft extension. Planning application reference No: 21/00049/FULL.

Set on a popular residential street only a short walk from first class grammar schools, high street shops and the mainline station, this home is perfect for city commuters and families with professional needs. 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.
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 Elm Road. The Yew Tree and Ridgewaye Playing Fields are also close by, with open green spaces for walking and recreational sport.

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. Elm Road 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.
