SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES Elevated and peaceful in its prized ridge position with glorious panoramic views across the Weald, this wonderful property stands proud.

Set back from the road by a smart block brick driveway flanked by raised lawn and high mature hedging on both sides, the house is perfectly placed to enjoy its exquisite views.

With a garage set neatly to the left, a pretty gabled porch welcomes you into this wonderful detached family home.

Beyond, a spacious reception hallway with a useful guest cloakroom is brightened by a large mid-landing picture window casting patterns of light onto its warm wooden flooring.

The layout and flow of the home is fabulous with the current owners maintaining its character and style as they have sensitively extended it over the years. They truly have created a house of dreams with its substantial layout ideal for family life.

To the right is the spacious living room which is a welcoming space with wooden flooring and a beautiful fireplace adding character and warmth in the colder months.

Through glazed French doors at the rear, is the stunning garden room flooded with light from its expanse of glass and vaulted roof lanterns. It is a sophisticated space, prefect for relaxing or entertaining in. Three sets of floor to ceiling bi-fold doors spanning the width of the back and side walls effortlessly slide open to extend your living space into the lush green garden beyond.

Next door the dining room`s traditional space delivers a great dining experience with a useful serving hatch giving you a glimpse of the kitchen behind.
It is a light and spacious room with plenty of bleached oak cupboards, countertops, space for a large range oven, integrated Neff fridge/freezer and Bosch dishwasher. The large window above the sink brings the outside in while a table height breakfast bar is perfect for your morning coffee.

Behind is the spacious utility room with storage cupboards, another sink for muddy paws and boots, room for additional appliances and front and rear access into the garden. A beamed veranda links the utility room with the garage to the front enabling pedestrian access.

Returning to the hallway, the home office is ideal to escape the morning commute or alternatively it would make a wonderful playroom, close enough to the kitchen for you to keep a watchful eye as they play.

The wide stairs take you up to a landing which has access into the insulated loft and wonderful uninterrupted panoramic views to the front.

The tranquil master bedroom suite to the far right has sweeping views to the front, an abundance of fitted wardrobes and access into its luxurious en-suite bathroom at the rear.

Area Information:

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.
