A well-maintained and extended four-bedroom semi-detached family home, complemented by a large garden and patio – great for entertaining. This fantastic property is situated in a quiet residential road of similar properties in the extremely popular village of Bidborough on the outskirts of Royal Tunbridge Wells. Bidborough is a thriving community with an over-subscribed primary school and numerous societies and sports clubs; there is a popular village store, welcoming church and highly regarded gastro-pub, whilst country walks are on the doorstep.
Open house Saturday 7th May – 11:00am onwards (strictly by appointment only).
Set back from the road behind a low brick wall with a pretty front garden and driveway for two cars sits this impressive bay-fronted home.
A sheltered front entrance offers a handy place to kick off muddy boots before stepping into the welcoming hallway. On your right is the substantial dual aspect living/dining room with attractive original floorboards and homely fitted log burning stove. A large bay window floods the room with natural light, whilst there is plenty of space for chunky sofas to the front of the room and a large table and chairs at the other end. A sliding door opens from the dining area to the upper patio with its pergola and wealth of wisteria.
The kitchen/breakfast room is another fantastic family space with a side door leading to the garden and a wonderful view from full height patio windows next to the table area. The modern kitchen itself has plenty of useful cupboards and worksurfaces, perfect for any keen cook. There is an integrated oven/grill with gas hob, a dishwasher, a sink/drainer sitting neatly beneath a side window, and space at the end of the work surfaces for a large standing fridge/freezer.
Next to the kitchen is a handy utility room. There is a sink/drainer along with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Across from the utility is the downstairs cloakroom with WC and wash basin.
Completing the ground floor is the good-sized storeroom (previously the garage) at the front of the house, with great potential for further development.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor you will find the four bedrooms (one with en-suite) and family bathroom, all from the good-sized landing, plus access to two attic rooms.
The principal bedroom sits at the front of the house with its bay window maximising natural light. It is a great sized double bedroom with an array of useful fitted wardrobes as well as space for further bedroom furniture.

The third bedroom has more lovely garden views to the rear, with an oriel window to the side. There is the bonus of an en-suite with attractive wood panelled walls and another oriel window. The en-suite comprises of a walk-in shower, WC and wash basin.
Bedroom four, with a window to the front, is currently used as a home office but would make an ideal single bedroom.
