Property description

This fantastic house, surrounded by leafy woodland and open countryside, is at the end of a quiet cul de sac, in an idyllic semi-rural setting.

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, including Bidborough's highly regarded primary school, it is the perfect home for families with professional needs.

However, you also benefit from all the tranquil village offerings of the picturesque cricket green, beautiful woodland, and popular gastro pub.

The house itself offers contemporary living with a layout and flow that are ideal for family life.

A block brick driveway with parking for several cars leads you up to the house, with an integrated double garage sat neatly to the side.

The canopied entrance door opens into a light and spacious hallway, with a useful guest cloakroom and under stair storage cupboard.

First on the left is the family room with its square bay window flooding the space with light. It is a very versatile space, and it could easily double as a home office, a playroom or an informal TV room for older children.

Behind is the spacious living room. It is an elegant room with neutral décor, wooden flooring, double aspect windows and French doors opening into the garden. A wall hung gas fire adds character and warmth in the colder months and there is plenty of space for family living and entertaining.

To the side is the dining room with dual aspect green garden views as you dine and French doors that open onto the paved patio.

Opening to the rear, also accessed from the hallway, is the fabulous kitchen/breakfast room. Streamlined Shaker style cabinetry is topped with gleaming black granite and houses integrated appliances, including AEG double ovens, microwave and five ring gas hob, Bosch dishwasher and a full height fridge. A large island with space for four bar stools lets friends and family sit and chat to you as you cook.

A separate utility room to the rear with space and plumbing for appliances, an additional sink, a full height freezer, cupboard space and room for coats and muddy boots keeps the kitchen clutter free. It also gives access to the double integral garage.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor, its landing flooded with light from dual aspect windows, there are four bedrooms, all beautifully presented, spacious and bright.

The principal bedroom with a modern en-suite and walk in wardrobe, has a set of glazed doors that open onto a sit on balcony giving spectacular views.

The second bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes.

The immaculate family bathroom with a panel enclosed bath and separate shower cubicle completes the first floor.

Outside, the enclosed rear garden offers a safe sanctuary for pets and children and is neatly laid to lawn with close boarded fencing and mature planting at all perimeters. A paved patio at the back of the house is perfect for summer dining and entertaining and a gate at the rear of the garden gives access into the wood behind, making it a child's dream.

This home really does offer a luxury family lifestyle that you could move straight in and enjoy. A must see!

Area Information: Southborough/Bidborough border, Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Southborough is just a couple of miles outside the historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells. Southborough sits immediately to the north of Tunbridge Wells and just south of Tonbridge, with the A26 passing through it. Southborough's location allows easy access to the A21 which leads to the M25.

Southborough Common, situated towards the Tonbridge end of the town, is a conservation area where cricket has been played for more than 200 years. Southborough Cricket Club is still very much a vibrant community club.

If you're a runner or casual walker, the woodland area of the Southborough Common is a very beautiful space. The woodland area of Southborough Common, nestled behind St. Peters Church, is a delightful broadleaf woodland featuring ancient and young trees sloping down to a stream.
Birch Wood, accessed from the property's garden, is in the valley between Southborough and Bidborough. With its lovely lake, duck house, and array of pathways and bridges meandering through 17 acres, this wood is a haven for wildlife and a perfect place for local residents to enjoy the countryside.

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 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 area benefits from open countryside and sprawling woodland on its doorstep but it is also popular with commuters being only 1.8 miles from Tonbridge Station with its fast and frequent access into central London in 44 minutes. High Brooms mainline station in Southborough is also about a mile away, with fast and frequent train services to London Charing Cross.

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. There is also a luxury coach service, which drops and collects a short walk from the property, straight to Canary Wharf, the City, Embankment, and other central London destinations. It is half the cost of rail travel enabling you to slumber or work using its Wi-Fi connectivity as you travel.

Excellent local independent primary schools such as The Schools at Somerhill and Hilden Grange Primary sit alongside the highly regarded Bidborough, and Southborough primary schools and the sought-after girls' and boys' secondary grammar schools are also nearby. With several 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.
