SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES This fantastic family home is on a quiet and friendly cul-de-sac in a sought-after area that presents a perfect dynamic of excellent schools, superb transport links and a stunning rural back drop.
A smart block-brick driveway leads a path to the entrance door that welcomes you into this wonderful detached family home.
The home's substantial and spacious layout is ideal for family life and with two large reception rooms there is plenty of entertaining space too.
The welcoming entrance hall has a useful guest cloakroom and a deep under stairs storage cupboard.
Across the hallway, the spacious living room is flooded with light from its large bay window while its rear glazed doors bring views of the garden in. A stone enclosed fireplace adds warmth in the colder months.
Next door the dining room is brightened by its triple aspect windows, the front French windows opening onto a paved terrace overlooking the front garden.
The fitted kitchen is light and spacious with plenty of cupboards, worktop space, room for appliances and a window cleverly placed above the sink.
A lobby behind provides access into a separate utility room with a sink and extra room for appliances, a big double garage ripe for development and front and rear doors opening into the garden and driveway.
The first floor boasts four great bedrooms which lead off the landing. The master bedroom's front aspect glazed doors slide open to access the enclosed balcony for your morning coffee. A bathroom and separate shower room completes the first floor.
Outside at the rear, a paved terrace, perfect for alfresco dining, sits at the back of the living and dining rooms and fronts a large lawned area edged by high mature hedging, plants and trees. A pathway to the side winds down to the screened vegetable patch with its glass greenhouse. The garden is a wide space taking full advantage of its corner plot, with the trees behind affording extra privacy.
This bright welcoming home is nicely decorated and immaculately presented enabling you to move in straight away. It is also, however, a dream project to create your own vision and add value in the future.
With open countryside on its doorstep and being a stone's throw from easy access to the M25, fast rail connections to central London and first-class schools, it is the perfect home for families with professional needs. A must see!

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 30 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.
