This beautifully refurbished home is a short walk from first class grammar schools, high street shops and the mainline station making it perfect for city commuters and families with professional needs.
A handsome red brick exterior leads you past a smart front garden up a stone pathway to the front door, neatly placed at the side.
The elegant living room at the front of the house is a cosy retreat with the handsome sash window exposing street views while the wood burning stove offers a welcoming warmth in the colder months.
The dining room which sits just off the kitchen is bathed in light from its rear aspect window bringing views of the garden in. It is perfectly placed next to the kitchen for family dinners with a period fireplace for a more intimate entertaining space.
Towards the rear of the house is the pretty kitchen/breakfast room whose bespoke wooden country style cabinets provide ample storage space top and bottom. Crisp white walls and black and white tiled flooring add character and contrast to the warm wooden cabinetry while a Belfast sink placed under a window lets you star gaze as you wash up. The room feels very light with its side windows and part patterned glazed door giving rear garden access. A door at the rear opens into the separate utility room with useful guest cloakroom.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor the spacious bathroom is at the rear of the landing with a sumptuous period roll top bath with a shower over. Light streams into both double bedrooms with both benefiting from built in wardrobes.
The paved courtyard garden is a charming space with borders for plants, plenty of space for alfresco dining and close boarded fencing on all sides providing privacy and a safe enclosure for pets and children.
This fabulous period home offers flexible living space in a central location.

Area Information: Southborough
Southborough is just a couple of miles outside the historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells. Southborough sits immediately to the north of Tunbridge Wells and just south of Tonbridge, with the A26 passing through it. Southborough's location allows easy access to the A21 which leads to the M25.
Southborough Common, situated towards the Tonbridge end of the town, is a conservation area where cricket has been played for more than 200 years. Southborough Cricket Club is still very much a vibrant community club.
If you're a runner or casual walker, the woodland area of the Southborough Common is a very beautiful space. The woodland area of Southborough Common, nestled behind St. Peters church, is a delightful broadleaf woodland featuring ancient and young trees sloping down to a stream.
Secondary, independent, prep and private schools can be found in both Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, while Southborough has its very own primary school which is a short walk from the property.
Tunbridge Wells is just over a mile away with big retail names. The nearest mainline station to Southborough is at High Brooms, about a mile away, with fast and frequent train services to London Charing Cross. There are also mainline stations on the same line at Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells.
The A21, which provides a direct link onto M25 and other motorways, is a few minutes' drive away from Southborough.
