Set on a quiet cul-de-sac, with woodland as its backdrop, the smart appearance of this home as you approach is quite modest. Once inside, however, its size and quality are immediately apparent, and its rear leafy views are fabulous.
A neat block brick driveway with parking for several cars fronts a covered tiled porch area with access into a garage, providing plenty of storage space.
The part opaque glazed entrance door to the side opens into a wide hallway, its warm wooden effect flooring contrasting beautifully with its neutral walls and seamlessly linking it with the rest of the floor.
To the right, past a useful utility room with cloakroom facilities, you reach the kitchen, which is beautifully finished and fully equipped, as you would expect of a house of this quality. Light bounces off the glossy white cabinetry that stretches around the room housing integrated AEG appliances such as a full height fridge, freezer, dishwasher and double oven with 4 ring gas hob and extractor.
There is plenty of countertop space which offers a breakfast bar overhang for up to four stools.
To the side of the kitchen is a sunny conservatory with wrap around windows and a door which opens onto a raised paved terrace, perfect for your morning coffee.
Beyond the kitchen, the fabulous open plan living, dining room is an impressive size with rear aspect leafy views and a wall of sliding glazed doors extending the living space onto the sun terrace. The dimensions of the living space cleverly define a dining and seating area with ample space for a deep sofa and a large dining table and chairs.
Accessed off the sun terrace is a home office with French windows that affords both privacy and views in equal measure.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are two generously sized bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, storage space and desks. The immaculate family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle and tiled panel enclosed bath completes the floor.
Returning to the entrance hall, stairs lead down to the lower ground floor which continues the house`s contemporary, light filled interior.
The master bedroom suite at the far end of the hall offers an open walled dressing area and a large rear aspect window allowing you to lie lazily in bed delighting in the spectacular tree top views.
Next door is a modern shower room and opposite, a fourth generous double bedroom. Another fantastic sun deck to the rear offers more versatile family space.
With two sun decks, one with glass balustrades offering unimpeded garden views, that stretch the length of the house on both lower floors, you have plenty of alfresco dining space and room to lie lazily in the sun. The garden is lush and green sloping down towards the woodland behind. Mature trees, hedging, plants and shrubs afford great privacy enabling you to enjoy the pleasures of the countryside tranquillity the home enjoys.
This is a house that has been renovated and modernised by the current owners to provide a luxury family lifestyle that you can move straight in and enjoy.
Its location also presents a perfect dynamic of excellent schools, superb transport links and a stunning leafy back drop. 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.
