SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES A smart exterior of exposed brick contrasts beautifully with its sage green entrance door and gravelled driveway, delivering plenty of kerb appeal for this beautiful home.
It is neatly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life, down a quiet street behind the picturesque village pond. However, it delivers the best of both worlds as it is also a short walk from local shops, sought after schools and excellent transport links.
It has been recently refurbished by the current owner to a high standard, who has sympathetically created a period cottage with a modern twist.
Deceptively spacious, you enter into the living room, the first of two reception rooms. It is a welcoming space with warm wooden flooring, accents of wall colour and fitted alcove cabinetry to provide storage.
Directly behind is the dining room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen. It is a generous space with plenty of room for a table and chairs and a sofa too. A glazed door offers views of the garden and a deep under stairs storage cupboard keeps the area clutter free.
At the rear you step down into the stylish kitchen which delivers wonderful cooking facilities with an abundance of cream cabinets topped with work surfaces. A butler sink is thoughtfully placed under the window and there is a fitted oven with space and plumbing for additional appliances. Dual aspect windows bring in pretty garden views.
The central staircase, with clever shelving above, leads you up to the first floor's two bedrooms, both immaculate doubles with a restful feel.
A stylish and contemporary bathroom with shower over the bath completes the floor.
Outside the sunny rear garden has a decked terrace, perfect for alfresco dining, and an area of lawn which is fully enclosed offering a safe sanctuary for pets and children.
This fabulous period home, close to Holden Pond and opposite the woodland and green common beyond, is welcoming, spacious and well-presented; perfect to move in straight away. A must see!

Southborough Common, situated towards Holden Corner'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. Holden Corner is also within the catchment areas for the 6 highly regarded and sought after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.
