The beauty of this home is immediately apparent as you approach, its handsome exterior of hung tiles and pitched roof dormer windows being set back from the road and concealed behind electric wooden gates.
Within walking distance of Southborough`s picturesque cricket green, woodland walks and local village shops, it has the best of both worlds as it is a stone`s throw from easy access to the M25, fast rail connections to central London and first-class schools.
The ground floor is entered by a light and spacious reception hallway with the home`s décor throughout showcasing an elegant neutral palette.
First on your right is a home office that is large enough to double as a gym whilst a useful guest cloakroom sits neatly beside it.
At the rear on the right is an elegant drawing room with French doors leading onto a generous sun terrace. A wood burning stove framed by a beautiful stone fireplace adds character and warmth in the colder months.
A set of glazed double doors leads you into the fabulous kitchen, breakfast, family room of epic proportions which is also accessed directly off the hallway. It is a vast space, perfect for entertaining on a large scale and equally a lovely space for cosy family evenings in. With floor to ceiling glazed doors spanning the width of the back wall you can effortlessly slide them open to extend your living space into the lush green garden beyond.
The open plan kitchen space is beautifully finished and fully equipped as you would expect from a house of this quality. Light bounces off the gleaming black granite which contrasts beautifully with the warm wooden cabinetry that houses the integrated Neff appliances. The island has a breakfast bar for your morning coffee which overhangs a useful wine rack below. To the right of the kitchen there is plenty of space for a dining table and chairs.
Off the kitchen is a separate spacious utility area with another cloakroom and access into the integrated double garage with side garden access.
A turning staircase draws you up to the wide first floor landing with rooms running off it on all sides.
The magnificent master bedroom suite is flooded with light from its front and side aspect windows. A contemporary, modern en-suite and bespoke dressing area, both add to the feeling of luxury that the room certainly delivers on.
A second bedroom with its own beautifully finished en-suite and deep walk in wardrobe and two further generously sized bedrooms offer superb family accommodation. The immaculate family bathroom completes the first floor.
It is a house that keeps on giving with a further flight of stairs leading you up to the second floor. It is a room of grand proportions with Velux windows at the rear and a large front aspect casement window making it a welcoming and bright space either to sleep or play in depending on your family`s needs.
The landscaped garden has been beautifully planted and maintained with an expanse of lawn plenty big enough for a large trampoline and space for children to play on. Mature hedging, plants and shrubs afford great privacy enabling you to enjoy alfresco dining and entertaining on the decked and paved terrace.
This is a beautifully proportioned family home that has been flawlessly finished by the current owners whose attention to detail has ensured stunning décor and fittings of the highest quality throughout. It really does offer a luxury family lifestyle that you could move straight in and enjoy.

Area Information: Southborough
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 towards Newhaven`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. London 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 in 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, which is the easiest to get to from Newhaven, 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 40 minute journeys.
