With open farmland and woodland walks on its doorstep this home's tranquil cul-de-sac location offers the best of both worlds. You can enjoy a relaxed family life, whilst benefiting from excellent schools and superb transport links accessed via a nearby cut through.
A beautiful leafy green exterior with hung tiles together with an enviable corner plot, a deep green verge setting it back from the street, adds to this home's kerb appeal.
The pretty stained glass front door opens into a light and spacious reception hallway with plenty of space for coats. With luxury Karndean wood effect flooring, a cast iron radiator and a modern shower room the quality of this home is immediately apparent.
The bright lounge opens off to the right of the hallway with natural light flooding in through its large leaded square bay window, framing the leafy front view. An exposed brick chimney breast with its gas effect wood burner stove adds warmth to the room in the colder months.
On your left is the heart of the home, the incredible open plan kitchen/breakfast room that stretches into an open conservatory at the rear. It delivers wonderful cooking facilities with an abundance of cream cabinets, a breakfast bar and ample room for an Aga and all the appliances you could ever need. For family and entertaining, there is tons of space for both dining and living.
The fully glazed conservatory has double doors that lead out onto the garden with its expanse of lawn and a flagstone terrace, perfect for evening entertainment. A barked play area and a summer house at the rear make it a fabulous child friendly space whilst a double garage and a wooden shed with electricity and plumbing for appliances cater for all of your adult needs too.
The first floor boasts four bedrooms which lead off the light and spacious landing, all its windows fitted with custom built shutters. The master bedroom features an entire wall of fitted wardrobes, its internal drawers and hanging rails neatly concealed behind sliding mirrored doors.

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.
Southborough Hub with its new medical centre, library, theatre/hall, coffee shop, community rooms, and town council offices, together with retail space is within walking distance of the house. The Yew Tree and Ridgewaye Playing Fields are also close by, with open green spaces for walking and recreational sport. There are also allotments either side of the fields allowing you to grow your own fruit and vegetables on your doorstep.
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 walk way, 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.
