SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES This beautifully renovated apartment spans the entire second floor of an impressive detached Victorian conversion, which itself is set back from the road by an attractive front garden and driveway.

With breathtaking open countryside views to the front and within walking distance of Southborough's picturesque cricket green, woodland walks and local village shops, this home sits on one of the village's most sought after roads.

The apartment's private front door opens into a graceful split level entrance hallway whose elegant décor and generous proportions give a nod to the building's Victorian heritage and features. It has a useful cloakroom on the lower level and home office space on the upper.

The principle bedroom on the left is full of character with a handsome period fireplace and a rear window offering roof top views. It is a vast space, making even a king-sized bed look small, and has two fitted cupboards for storage.

Behind, bedroom two is also a generous space and with its own corner shower cubicle, vanity unit with wash hand basin and unobstructed countryside views, it is a welcome retreat.

Next door is the modern bathroom with a freestanding claw foot bath, corner shower cubicle and glazed shutters adding a touch of glamour.

Beyond is the living/dining room with its brick enclosed fireplace with painted mantle and window with countryside views that take your breath away. There is ample room for deep sofas and a dining table and chairs, making it the perfect space to relax and entertain in.

Along the hallway is the kitchen which is beautifully finished and fully equipped as you would expect from a home of this quality. Light bounces off the Corian work surfaces which contrast beautifully with the grey wooden cabinetry that wraps around the room housing integrated appliances. Beautiful warm wooden effect flooring with decorative detailing and white tiled splash backs with glazing behind the oven space add contemporary touches of glamour.

A further generously sized bedroom with a fireplace and large window completes the apartment.

There are two private parking spaces, one to the rear and sat beside a large wooden shed for storage. A private garden space at the front, screened by mature hedging with some planting, offers the pleasures of the countryside views and tranquility the home enjoys.

With open countryside on its doorstep and being a stone's throw from easy access to the M25, fast rail connections to central London and first class schools, it offers a luxury lifestyle that you could move straight in and enjoy. A must see!

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 Road'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 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 at 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 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.
