Property description

Perched on a corner plot screened from the road by high hedging, a striking exterior of white paint, stone window mullions and hung tiles really make this home stand out from its neighbours.

A pathway winds you up through its front garden overflowing with interesting plants, flowers and shrubbery towards the house's stunning period gabled roof porch.

The central part of the house is steeped in history with the bright entrance hall's original Victorian tiles giving a nod to its architectural heritage.

Although later extended to both sides, the layout of the house flows seamlessly with the wonderfully light triple aspect sitting room stretching broadly to the gas wood burner fireplace which adds warmth to the room. Every window delivers the room with a fantastic view and there is plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining.

Through glazed doors the living space spans into the impressive conservatory with its two walls of glass and high sloped ceiling drawing the sunlight in. A raised deck beyond is an extension of the living space in the warmer months and is an ideal spot for alfresco dining.

The warm wooden flooring flows through an opening to the right into the elegant dining room with its bespoke fitted dresser units. There is plenty of space for a large dining table and chairs.

A charming arched door to the left draws you into the office, its wooden flooring dappled with light from its square bay window.

Conveniently placed next door to the dining room is the well-equipped kitchen. It has an abundance of painted wooden cabinetry with contrasting granite work tops and a sink which sits below a large window enabling you to star gaze as you wash up. There is plenty of room for appliances whilst a practical utility space behind the breakfast bar fulfills all your family needs.

A rear glazed door takes you through an inner lobby with front and rear garden access into the spacious annex beyond. It is a fantastic addition with living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom all beautifully fitted and presented. It is a very versatile space that can either be used for elderly family, visiting guests or alternatively can be easily reconfigured to afford you more reception rooms.

Returning to the main house you climb the stairs to the first floor's four double bedrooms all flooded with light from their leafy window views. All bedrooms are beautifully presented and spacious with the master bedroom having a contemporary en-suite. The family bathroom is fresh and modern.

Outside the home's Mediterranean-style garden wraps around the side of the house and is laid mainly to lawn with an array of palms, flowers, trees and plants. There is the superb raised decked area providing a perfect setting for summer entertaining with the addition of the annex garden's stone terrace seating area. With off street parking and wooden sheds for storage this peaceful private garden really does deliver on all fronts and in all weathers too.

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!

Area Information:

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.
