SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES This fantastic, detached house has a light filled interior that flows beautifully to deliver family and entertaining space in equal measure, that you could move straight in and enjoy.
A handsome brick exterior with an array of pretty windows entices you up its neat block brick driveway. Surrounded by lush green trees, with a shaped lawn to the front, it sits comfortably in its idyllic semi-rural setting.
A part glazed porch with space for muddy boots welcomes you into the entrance hallway, its warm wooden parquet flooring connecting its generous reception rooms that run off it at every angle.
First on the right is the dining room which is brightened by its bay window, providing the perfect space for intimate dining experiences.
Behind is the wonderful kitchen/breakfast room that is beautifully finished and fully equipped, as you would expect from a house of this quality. Light bounces off the gleaming granite counter tops which contrast beautifully with a mix of painted and natural oak wooden cabinetry that houses the integrated appliances. The island has a mix of useful storage options and an oak dresser compliments the dining space.
Opening to the right of the kitchen is the family room, perfect for chatting to friends and family as you prepare dinner. It is a social space with French doors leading out onto the garden terrace.
Beyond is the spacious utility room, with another sink for muddy boots and paws, additional storage and space and plumbing for appliances. It also gives access to the side return, large guest cloakroom and integral garage.
Returning to the hallway and to the left is the living room. It is an elegant room with wooden parquet flooring, leaded windows to the side and a bay to the front. A fireplace with a wooden mantle and tiled surround and hearth adds character and warmth in the colder months. Internal double doors can lie open into the sun room behind, creating a fabulously social feature.
The double aspect sun room at the rear, also accessed directly off the hallway, is a superb space, perfect for entertaining on a large scale and equally a lovely space for cosy family evenings in. With floor to ceiling windows and French doors spanning the width of the back wall you can enjoy lush green garden views.
A staircase draws you up to the wide first floor landing, brightened by a large leaded window, with rooms running off it on all sides.
The master bedroom is flooded with light from its front aspect window and a contemporary en-suite adds to the feeling of luxury that the room certainly delivers on.
There is a second beautifully finished shower room next door and further along the landing, an immaculate family bathroom with a panel enclosed bath and separate shower cubicle.
There are five further bedrooms, four of which are generous doubles and the sixth that is currently set up as a home office.
Outside is the large rear garden with a paved terrace perfect for alfresco dining at the rear of the house. The lawn is bordered on all sides by a mix of wooden and wire fencing and high hedging. Stocked flower beds, mature shrubs, silver birch and sycamore trees are dotted about the garden. It is fully enclosed offering a sanctuary for children and pets whilst a wooden shed offers storage for all your garden tools.
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 is the perfect home for families with professional needs. It is also within walking distance of Bidborough's highly regarded primary school, picturesque cricket green, recreation ground, petrol station, local shop and popular gastro pub.
This beautifully proportioned family home has been well thought out and sensitively planned for modern family life. An absolute must see!

Area Information: Bidborough, Tunbridge Wells, Kent
Bidborough is an idyllic and pretty village in the borough of Tunbridge Wells, lying to the north of Tunbridge Wells town centre and to the south of Tonbridge town centre.
It has an active community with an historic church, a local primary school which is ranked by Ofsted as good, a petrol station, a local convenience store and a popular recently and extensively refurbished village pub, the 'Kentish Hare'.
Parish sports facilities are good, and the village boasts a tennis court, a bowls green and two recreation ground areas, which are available for cricket and five-a-side football.
The village benefits from open countryside and sprawling woodland on its doorstep but it is also popular with commuters being only 1.8 miles from Tonbridge Station with its fast and frequent access into central London in 44 minutes. It is also close to Gatwick Airport and with the A21 less than 2 miles away with access onto the M25 it provides quick road access into London too. There is also a luxury coach service, that drops up and collects a short walk from The Crescent, 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.
Excellent local independent primary schools such as The Schools at Somerhill and Hilden Grange Primary sit alongside the highly regarded village primary and the sought after girls' and boys' secondary grammar schools are also nearby. With a number of additional exceptional state secondary schools in its borough and the renowned Tonbridge and Sevenoaks Schools on its doorstep, parents are definitely spoilt for choice.
The more extensive shopping facilities in both Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells are nearby as is Tunbridge Wells' historic Pantiles which offers a vibrant al fresco café culture with independent boutiques stretching up to the old High Street.
