Tucked away from view behind impressive electronic iron gates, a sweeping gravelled drive edged by high mature hedging leads you up to the house.
With its impressive exterior of red brick, hung tiles, gable roof and full height windows this individually designed home packs a punch.
It sits quietly to the left of the off-street parking area and detached timber framed double garage with an impressive solid oak entrance door flanked by glass on all sides enticing you in.
The entrance hallway is fresh and modern with warm oak flooring and wide carpeted stairs rising upwards immediately showcasing the home's contemporary, light filled interior.
A door to the left leads you through to the kitchen which is beautifully finished and fully equipped as you would expect from a house of this quality. Light bounces off the gleaming black granite which contrasts beautifully with the warm oak cabinetry that wraps around the room housing integrated Bosch double ovens, a Baumatic 4 ring electric hob and a dishwasher. There is an island with useful extra worktop space and storage space below whilst a wall length of additional Velux sky lights floods the room with light enabling you to wash up under the stars. There is also plenty of space for a dining table and chairs at the far end of the room which is conveniently placed in front of the double French windows giving access out onto the decking and garden beyond.
Off the kitchen is a separate spacious utility area with garden access and an additional sink with an abundance of extra bespoke cabinetry offers plenty more storage options.
Across the hallway and past a useful guest cloakroom is a good-sized room that could be used as a home office area.
The final room on the ground floor is the living room whose grand proportions, triple aspect windows and wood burning stove encased beautifully within its fireplace takes your breath away. It is a vast space with plenty of room to entertain in or to curl up in front of the fire in a deep sofa on cold winter nights.
A turning staircase flooded with light from its landing full height windows draws you up to the immaculate first floor rooms.
The master bedroom suite has a contemporary, modern en-suite and a pair of bespoke double wardrobes, both of which add to the feeling of luxury that the room delivers on.
A second bedroom with its own beautifully finished double wardrobes and two further generously sized bedrooms offer superb family accommodation. The immaculate family bathroom competes the first floor.
The second floor 5th bedroom delivers a wow factor with a room of epic proportions being encased in full length glass at the top of the stairs and further benefiting from full height windows overlooking the front of the house.
The garden has areas of lawn to the front and side with mature hedging, plants and shrubs affording great privacy enabling you to enjoy alfresco dining and entertaining on the elevated decked area outside the kitchen.
Silver Birch really does offer a luxury family lifestyle that you could move straight in and enjoy. 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.

It also sits just south of Tonbridge, with the A26 passing through it offering easy access to the A21 which leads to the M25.
Southborough Common, to the north of Silver Birch, is a conservation area where cricket has been played for more than 200 years.
If you're a runner, dog owner or casual walker, the woodland area of the Southborough Common, nestled behind St. Peters Church, is a very beautiful space. Ancient and young trees slope down to a stream with access to Holden Pond and Bidborough and Speldhurst villages beyond.
Excellent secondary, independent, preparatory and private schools can be found in both Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, while Southborough and Bidborough have their very own primary schools. Kibbles Lane is also within the catchment areas for the 5 highly regarded and sought after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.
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. Tonbridge Station is just over 2 miles away and with two lines passing through, it provides on average 34 trains a day from Tonbridge to London Bridge in as little as 35 minute journeys.
