SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES TUNBRIDGE WELLS This wonderful detached home is perfectly positioned in its quiet village location with open countryside on its doorstep, but it is also a stone's throw from easy access to the M25, fast rail connections to central London and first-class schools.

The current owners' wholescale renovation has created a beautifully proportioned home that delivers a family friendly style of living with a contemporary twist.

Set back from its popular road by high hedging and a driveway with parking for several cars, its red brick exterior contrasts beautifully with its grey windows, with a canopied porch inviting you in.

The wide entrance hallway is bright and welcoming, tiled flooring linking each room that runs off it at every angle, with glazed doors at the rear giving a glimpse of the back of the house and garden beyond.

A wet room shower room, home office and separate utility room with garden access and a sink for muddy paws and boots deliver all your essential family needs.

The dual aspect living room on the right is wonderfully bright with bi fold doors to the side opening onto the terrace. It is a very relaxing space with warm wooden flooring and plenty of room for sofas.

A glazed door at the rear opens into the family room that is open plan to the kitchen/breakfast/ dining room. It is also accessed through glazed doors from the hallway and is flooded with light from an expanse of glass.

The dimensions of the impressive space cleverly define seating, dining and cooking areas with two sets of bi fold doors at the rear making the space wonderfully light and extending the living space into the garden in the summer months. It is the hub of the home, fantastic for family living and entertaining and a large island houses the hob and downdraft extractor as well as providing seating for up to six bar stools, making it perfect for casual dining or chatting to friends and family as you cook.

The room keeps on giving as there is a chef's area to the side of the kitchen with an additional sink, integrated dishwasher, and additional storage cupboards and food preparation space.

Conveniently it is next door to the utility room too, with yet more storage space and washing facilities.

Climbing the newly carpeted stairs to the first floor, its wide landing is flooded with light from a ceiling Velux window. There are five bedrooms on both sides, all beautifully presented, spacious and bright.

The principal bedroom enjoys garden views, a walk-in dressing area and an en-suite shower room.

A modern family bathroom with a bath and a double walk-in shower enclosure completes the floor.

Outside the rear garden is fully enclosed making it a safe sanctuary for children and pets. It is mostly laid to lawn with some mature trees, hedging and planting adding privacy and interest. Terraces sit at the side of the house, perfect for summer entertaining, and there is a wooden shed for storage. With bi fold doors on two sides of the house, there is a seamless connection of indoor outdoor living.

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 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.
