SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES TUNBRIDGE WELLS This fantastic, detached house has a light filled interior that flows beautifully to deliver family and entertaining space in equal measure.

Perfectly positioned in its quiet village location with open countryside on its doorstep, it is also a stone's throw from easy access to the M25, fast rail connections to central London and first-class schools.

It is set back from its leafy street by a natural stone wall that borders a front garden, its double bay red brick exterior delivering plenty of kerb appeal.

There are two off-street driveways, one that fronts the large garage attached to the left offering storage and parking away from the ample driveways.

A covered entrance door opens into a wide and welcoming hallway dappled in light from its front windows, with a useful home office to the front.

To the left light pours into the spacious living room through its large bay window overlooking the street. It is a welcoming space with plenty of room for sofas and a fireplace with a wood burning stove adds character and warmth in the colder months.

Behind, the dining/family room's rear glazed doors bring views of the garden in. Its generous size offers flexibility with room for a relaxed seating area as well as a dining space, conveniently situated next to the kitchen.

To the rear the conservatory, currently used a home gym, is wonderfully bright due to its expanse of windows, making it perfect for you to sit in the sun, whilst keeping an eye on the children playing in the garden.

Next door the kitchen/breakfast room is light and spacious with plenty of cupboards, worktop space, an integrated double oven, hob and dishwasher and room for additional appliances. It has a walk-in larder and space for a freestanding kitchen island.

Beyond is the lobby area with access into the garden, a shower room and the utility room which has space and plumbing for appliances and an additional sink, perfect for muddy boots and paws. This area of the house would also be ripe for a renovation to reconfigure the kitchen space, should you wish.

The wide stairs take you up to a split level landing with doors opening off it at every angle and access into the loft.

The principle bedroom is bathed in light from its handsome bay window and is one of four generous doubles, with the fifth bedroom currently set up as a home office.

The luxurious and large family bathroom has a freestanding double ended slipper roll top bath and a separate shower enclosure. It also enjoys plenty of natural light from its dual aspect windows.

A modern shower room completes the floor.

Outside at the rear, a paved terrace, perfect for summer dining, sits at the back of the house and fronts an area of lawn with a raised decked seating area shaded by a pergola at the rear. It is a safe sanctuary for pets and children as it is enclosed by wooden fencing, with trees, plants and stocked flower beds adding interest and colour at its borders.

This bright, spacious home set in its quiet village location with all your first-class schooling and transport needs on your doorstep is perfect for a growing family. A 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 11th Century 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 2.5 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.

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.
