This deceptively spacious 2-bedroom house is a short walk from Tonbridge mainline station, the high street's shops and local recreational amenities. It also has superb schools on its doorstep.
With its smart red brick exterior, the house is set back from the road by a picket fenced garden.
The front door opens into the living room, which is brightened by its front aspect window. It is a welcoming space with plenty of room for sofas to relax in. An exposed brick chimney breast with real wood fire adds warmth in the colder months.
Beyond is the dining room whose wooden effect flooring and feature period fireplace add charm to dining experiences.
Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor.
The kitchen/breakfast room is to the rear and opens into and overlooks the garden. It is stylish and bright with wooden effect cabinetry which contrasts beautifully with contemporary flooring and work surfaces. There is an integrated oven and plenty of space for additional appliances to ensure that all your cooking needs are met.
Conveniently placed next door is a separate utility room.
At the front is the bathroom. It has a modern suite with a shower over the bath, its window reflecting light off its white fittings and tiles creating a soothing bathing experience.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are two good sized double bedrooms, both of which have period fireplaces and large windows bringing in lots of natural light.
Outside to the rear is a fully enclosed garden laid mainly to lawn with a paved terrace next to the house for summer entertaining. It is a safe sanctuary for pets and children and also benefits from street access and a wooden shed.
This home has been modernised and well maintained throughout and is a perfect for a small family, young professionals or buy to let investors due to its fantastic location. A must see!
