This beautiful Victorian cottage is neatly tucked away in a semi-rural area, with glorious countryside views and a woodland setting.

With a charming communal green to the front, it's quiet cul-de-sac truly offers the best of both worlds as it is only a short distance from local shops, sought after schools and excellent transport links into London.

Fronted by trees and approached by a pathway, the house is set back by an iron fence with a wooden gate opening onto a block brick terrace, with a canopied porch welcoming you in.

Deceptively spacious, you enter the living room, the first of two reception rooms. It is a welcoming space with an opening in the chimney breast adding character and an opportunity for a wood burning stove. There is plenty of space for furniture and a large front window offers leafy views.

Directly behind is the second reception room which is wonderfully versatile but is currently set up as a home office. A rear window brings in light and garden views.

The central staircase leads you up to the first floor with a ceiling access loft and a split-level landing.

The principal bedroom at the front is a good-sized double with a pretty period fireplace, a large window flooding the space with light and a fitted cupboard.

Opposite is the second bedroom which is also a generous double, with stunning countryside views.

Returning to the ground floor and down a set of stairs, the lower ground floor opens into a hallway with access into a utility cupboard, with plumbing and space for appliances.

Beyond is the spacious modern bathroom with a long vanity unit with storage and wall cupboards, partly mirrored, with lighting. There is a bath and separate shower cubicle.

To the rear is the country style kitchen with lots of work top space and a good selection of cupboards, both top and bottom. It is a charming space with a butlers sink, stainless steel splashbacks and wooden worktops contrasting beautifully with the cream shaker style units.

Folding doors open into the conservatory behind. It is the perfect space for living, dining and entertaining, with access to the garden at the rear. There is a fitted cupboard housing the boiler with plumbing for an appliance too.

Outside there is a paved terrace next to the house, ideal for summer dining. Paved steps to the side lead you down past alternating tiers of lawn and paved terracing to a beautiful, hedged arch. At the very rear is further garden space, with room for a shed, and a wooded backdrop with a meandering stream at the boundary.

This fabulous period home idyllically surrounded by woodland and green common beyond, is welcoming and spacious. A must see!

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 Modest 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. Modest Corner is also within the catchment areas for the 6 highly regarded and sought-after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.
