Set back from the road by a low wall with planting behind, this home's handsome red brick exterior and double bay windows provide plenty of kerb appeal.
A smart front door to the side of the house welcomes you into a light and airy hall of Victorian proportions. A useful storage cupboard with room for coats and shoes keeps the space clutter free.
To your right, at the front of the house, is the spacious living room. It is flooded with light from the generous bay window and has plenty of room for deep sofas to curl up in, in front of the wood burning stove.
Across the hallway is the dining room whose high ceiling, period detailing and fireplace adds charm to dining experiences.
Conveniently placed next door is the stylish kitchen with plenty of storage, integrated appliances and access into the garden and bathroom at the rear.
The first floor offers a bright and spacious landing with two large bedrooms leading off it, the second with a beautiful bay window and period fireplace. The principal bedroom boasts a separate dressing area, which is currently set up as a home office, and a modernised en-suite shower room with walk in shower cubicle.
The second floor has undergone a complete renovation by the current owners with the addition of a loft dormer to create a generous double bedroom and separate shower room.
This fantastic family home has the advantage of a lovely low maintenance garden that is accessed directly off the kitchen. It is laid mainly to lawn with a raised decked platform at the rear with wooden pergola, perfect for relaxing in the summer months.
This fabulous period home is a short walk from first class schools and mainline stations. However, it enjoys the best of both worlds as it is also close to Southborough Common, an area of outstanding natural beauty, the cricket green, woodland walks, and open countryside. A must see!

Area information: Southborough, Tunbridge Wells, Kent
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 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 property. 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.
Southborough Common, situated towards the property'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. The property is also within the catchment areas for the 6 highly regarded and sought-after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.
Southborough enjoys many local independent shops with an award winning hairdressers, The Gallery, and restaurant Tallow, which has just been named The Good Food Guide's Best UK Local Restaurant 2023 – both are a short walk away. With additional convenience stores, a baker, a butcher, and pubs such as The Hand & Sceptre and The Imperial nearby, all your local needs are met.
The nearest mainline station to the property is at High Brooms, which has parking, with fast and frequent train services to London Waterloo East, Charing Cross, London Bridge, and Canon Street. The train line at Tonbridge Station is 2.7 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. There is also a luxury coach service, which drops up and collects at the end of Pennington Road, straight to Canary Wharf, the city, Embankment, and other central London destinations. It is half the cost of rail travel enabling you to slumber or work using its Wi-Fi connectivity as you travel.
