This fantastic family home is set back from the road by a block brick driveway which provides off street parking for several cars, with an integral garage sat neatly to the side.
It has a smart red brick and part hung tile exterior with double square bay windows drenching the house with light.
A covered part glazed door opens into the entrance hallway with a useful guest cloakroom.
First on the right is the home office, currently set up as a music room. It is a very versatile space as it has double doors to the rear that open into the kitchen, so it could easily double as a dining room or a playroom.
Behind, the kitchen/breakfast room is a generous size with sleek streamlined cabinetry wrapping around the room and housing AEG appliances. The sink is placed under a large window letting you watch the children play as you wash up.
A door provides access to the integral garage which has been cleverly sectioned into two with the rear offering a much needed home gym space and both sections easily accessed through electric opening roller doors.
To the left light pours into the spacious dining room through its French doors which open into the garden, extending the living space in the warmer months and giving lush green views as you dine.
Opening behind is the living room which is a welcoming space with warm wooden flooring contrasting beautifully with the neutral walls and shuttered windows.
Returning to the hallway, the carpeted stairs take you up to a landing with rooms running off it on both sides.
There are three bedrooms on this floor, all generous doubles with fitted wardrobes, and all of which are beautifully presented and light.
The family bathroom is fresh and modern with a shower cubicle with rainwater shower head and tiled panel enclosed bath. A side aspect window reflects light off its white fittings and contemporary tiles for a soothing bathing experience.
Outside to the rear the garden is a green oasis and offers a high level of privacy with a paved terrace at the rear of the house, a paved pathway stretching through areas of lawn past a wooden pergola to a wooden picket fence and gate that opens into yet more garden space. More lawn, a vegetable patch, a greenhouse, and a large wooden shed are all neatly enclosed by mature hedging and stocked flower beds. The garden is fully enclosed offering a safe sanctuary for children and pets.
There is also a very unique lower ground studio, currently used for musical pursuits, which is an ideal space for your creativity, an office to escape the commute, a den for teenage children or a playroom for younger ones.
This substantial family home, only a short walk from local shops, sought after schools and excellent transport links, is ideal for a growing family. A must see!

Southborough Common, situated towards the north 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.
