This fabulous house, arranged over three floors, is quietly tucked away at the end of a shared driveway, elevated in its splendid semi-rural setting with glorious gardens to the rear.
Its generous proportions and additional annex accommodation offer versatility to either sympathetically blend the space into one splendid family home or utilise the two separately, as the current owners do.
Wonderfully screened by trees delivering a high level of privacy, a large driveway fronts the house with a detached garage with carport to the side.
Entering the wide hallway of the main house, with useful guest cloakroom, you are immediately met with high ceilings and period details which create a home of immense charm.
First on the left is the living room, flooded with light from its double aspect windows, a focal fireplace adding warmth in the colder months. The room stretches the length of the house offering impressive space for both entertaining and relaxing with family and friends.
Across the hallway to the front is the dining room. Beautiful wooden parquet flooring, double aspect windows overlooking the front garden and being conveniently placed next door to the kitchen, all contribute to wonderful dining experiences.
The kitchen/breakfast room behind has a streamlined kitchen at the heart of the space and a social breakfast bar for your morning coffee. There is plenty of space for a table and chairs at the far end in front of French doors that bring views of the garden in. Glossy cream units topped with contrasting work surfaces wrap around the room housing appliances with the sink sat cleverly under the window.
Next door is the spacious utility room with a front access door for easy shopping unloading, another sink for muddy boots and paws and plenty of fitted cabinetry and space for appliances.
Returning to the hallway and climbing the stairs to the first floor there are four bedrooms, one of which is set up as a home office with an impressive array of fitted desk, storage, and shelves.
Bedroom one is a generous double with a wall of fitted wardrobes and bedroom three, currently converted as a gym, has an en-suite shower room.
A separate cloakroom and bathroom with a shower over the bath complete the floor.
A further flight of stairs takes you up to the second floor where there are another two bright double bedrooms with plenty of storage and leafy green views.
The substantial bungalow annex has its own private entrance door, but access can also be gained through the main house via the utility room. It offers a dining room, spacious living room with fireplace, gable conservatory, wet room, bedroom, and bathroom. This part of the house has served its purpose as a wonderful home for the matriarch of the family, but it could equally work for the children during their teenage years, for visiting guests and even as business accommodation. Yet again, there are stunning garden views from this part of the house and its high-pitched roof affords development opportunity for its cavernous loft.
Outside to the rear is a lush green garden stretching to approximately two thirds of an acre. The tranquil gardens, with a stylish decked terrace at the rear and a delightful morning terrace beside the house, have large level lawns surrounded by an array of stocked flower beds, high hedging and trees. With a tennis court too, this garden really does deliver on all fronts.
This fantastic family home delivers space and light in abundance whilst offering a family friendly style of living. It also offers opportunity to extend and versatile accommodation.
It 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!

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.
