Set back from a quiet one way road by a low wall with lawn behind, this home's handsome red brick exterior and pretty bay window provides plenty of kerb appeal.
A smart front door to the side welcomes you into this immaculately presented home which the current owners have sensitively renovated and modernised to create a bright, stylish home in a sought-after location.
To your left, at the front of the house, is the spacious living room. It is flooded with light from the generous bay window and has plenty of room for deep sofas to curl up in, in front of the wood burning stove.
Towards the rear is the fantastic kitchen/dining room whose recent renovation has created an excellent cooking, dining and entertaining space. It is beautifully finished with Howdens cabinets, integrated appliances, lots of worktop space and a Philips Hue smart lighting system which adds a clever contemporary touch.
At the rear there is a clever utility / shower room with fitted cabinetery housing appliances and provided storage for linen. A shower cubical offers washing facilities which, after the creation after a loft conversion bathroom, will be a welcome addition.
Climbing the stairs to the first-floor split landing there are three bedrooms which all have large windows bringing in lots of natural light and all with graceful proportions that give a very tranquil feeling.
Outside to the rear is an enclosed garden with an area of lawn for the kids to play happily on and two decked terraces, perfect for relaxing in the summer months. It also benefits from front street access and a wooden shed with plenty of space for storage.
Judd Road is superbly located for a host of popular nurseries, primary, secondary and grammar schools, most notably the sought-after Tonbridge Grammar School for Girls. It is also close to all of Tonbridge's local amenities and the mainline railway station making it well served for leisure facilities and transport links.
This property couldn't feel more homely, its thoughtfully designed and stylish interior have sympathetically transformed a Victorian property into a sophisticated family home. There is also the added benefit of a natural ventilation with heat recycling system (NVHR).
The current owners have acquired plans to convert the loft to create a principal bedroom suite and storage room. This would add considerable space and value to the house, making it a must see!
