Stepping into the hallway, with a useful guest cloakroom, rooms run off it at every angle offering spacious and flexible accommodation.

With a sink cleverly placed under the front window, the kitchen delivers wonderful cooking facilities, and access is gained from both the hallway and the dining room behind.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor, there are four bedrooms, all beautifully presented, with large windows making them bright and welcoming spaces.
The principal bedroom enjoys beautiful views over the shared green and tree tops beyond. It also benefits from a modern en-suite bathroom with a separate shower cubicle.
A family bathroom with shower over the bath completes the first floor.
The home's garden, mainly laid to lawn, is pretty and well-tended with a colourful array of a variety of stocked flower beds and perimeter shrubs and hedging. A paved terrace to the side is perfect for summer entertaining.
The tandem garage can be accessed via a pedestrian door to the rear as well as an up and over door to the front and it has plumbing and space for appliances, as well as ample room for storage.

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 towards Pennington Place'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. Pennington Place 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 via a cut through walkway, 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 40-minute journeys.
