SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES This impressive house offers elegant spacious accommodation in the main house, with the added benefit of a 3-bedroom two storey attached annex next door.
The annex would be perfect for elderly family members or visiting friends but also offers the unique opportunity to bring it into the main house, making one large family home.
Approached up a sweeping shared drive, screened from the road, there is a large lawned area to the front of the house and parking for up to four cars, in front of a detached double garage.
With a 1930s timeless elegance, you step into the main house, full of charm and intrigue, into a large porch with plenty of space for coats and muddy boots.
A part glazed door gives you glimpses of the reception hallway behind which is grand and inviting, with warm wooden flooring and mid height wall paneling. There is a guest cloakroom to the front and its size immediately gives you a sense of past family gatherings and children's laughter.
Double glazed doors to the rear open into the dining room, which enjoys garden views for enjoyable dining experiences. French doors can lie open in the summer months extending the living space into the garden.
Next door the beautiful living room, although large, has a homely warmth to it. It too benefits from French doors that open into the garden and its neutral walls contrast beautifully with its wooden flooring. A handsome Limestone fireplace frames the chimney breast and encourages cosy nights in.
Behind is the kitchen/breakfast room which delivers a country cottage feel with terracotta floor tiles and cream cabinets, topped with wooden counter tops, housing integrated appliances. The sink sits cleverly under the window and there is plenty of room for a table and chairs.
Returning to the hallway, the wide stairs take you up to a mid-height landing with an expanse of windows flooding the space with light and French doors opening onto a sit on balcony with decorative railings.
The upper landing leads to an inner lobby with access into the family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle. There are three deep storage cupboards, one housing the water cylinder and a door that can give access to the second floor of the annex.
There are two double bedrooms to the rear, both with large windows bringing in light and garden views. The principle bedroom is a generous size with sumptuous red walls and dark wooden flooring. It has an opulent en-suite bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath.
Climbing a further flight of stairs to the second floor there is a wide landing with home office space and a front aspect window and a third double bedroom with eaves storage and triple aspect windows making it a very light space.
The attached house next door is accessed through a door to the side into an inner lobby that opens into the kitchen.
The kitchen is modern and streamlined providing plenty of storage and worktop space with integrated appliances.
The dining room is conveniently placed behind and leads through to the living room at the rear.
The living room is generous with ample room for family sofas and furniture with roof windows to the rear and bi-folds doors flooding the space with light and giving garden access.
Stairs lead up to the first floor where there are three bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles, and a modern family bathroom.
Outside to the rear there is a block brick terrace at the back of the house, perfect for alfresco dining. Mature stocked borders and flower beds deliver privacy and interest and wrap around a large area of lawn. There is a wooden shed to the rear and a double detached garage with a home office to the back.
This fantastic home offers 1930s architecture on a large scale which is flexible in terms of interior styling and presentation.
It also sits in a popular location surrounded by beautiful open countryside and farmland, but it also benefits from first-class schooling and excellent transport needs on its doorstep, making it the perfect family home. A must see!

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 Holly Hill'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 5 highly regarded and sought after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.
The nearest mainline station is Tonbridge Station (1.5 miles), with fast and frequent train services to London Charing Cross. There are also mainline stations on the same line at High Brooms (2.5 miles) and Tunbridge Wells. Tonbridge Station has 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, that drops up and collects a short walk from the house, 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.
