Detached 4/5 bedroom family house on a corner plot with a family-friendly accommodation flow and secluded gardens, set in a popular residential area of Tonbridge
A beautifully presented detached house with spacious rooms and a lovely flow of accommodation that is filled with light. This well-constructed property was built in 1961 and is on the market for the first time in 10 years. It is of brick construction with vertically hung tiling under a tiled roof and has double glazing throughout. The property has been thoughtfully extended to create an excellent family home with 4/5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2/3 reception rooms. The current owners have maintained the property to a high standard and upgraded the bathrooms and kitchen.
The kitchen/diner with wood flooring was recently completely remodelled to include a range of cream coloured cabinetry complimented by solid oak worktops and a breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include a gas hob, ovens, fridge, dishwasher, wine cooler and wine rack. This successful open plan space includes plenty of space for the generous kitchen and dining area, and leads into the spacious living room, which measures over 280 sq. ft. and has a working open fireplace with an attractive marble surround.
The master bedroom is extremely spacious and has a range of fitted wardrobes and a luxury ensuite bathroom with shower, whilst the second bedroom is also generous and equipped with a modern shower room. The family bathroom is conveniently situated for bedrooms 3 and 4 and has a bath with shower and floor to ceiling tiling. On the landing there is a hatch to the loft, which is fully boarded and has power and an integral ladder.
A brick paved driveway leads up to the front door and provides off road parking for 2 vehicles. There is also a single garage with a metal up and over door and ample on road parking available. The front garden has a small area of lawn bordered by shrubs with a side gate leading to the rear southwest facing garden, which can also be accessed from the kitchen and living room. It was the easy maintenance, south-facing garden that was important for the current owners with its terrace area, perfect for entertaining and al fresco dining and large expanse of lawn, providing a great play area for the children. Two handy sheds provide storage for garden equipment and bicycles.
One of the real highlights of this property is its fabulous location. St Bernards Road is within easy reach of the vibrant High Street and its varied retail outlets, and the numerous restaurants and cafés which have sprung up over the last 18 months, such as The Old Fire Station. It also is just a couple of minutes’ walk from a more local parade of shops, which include a convenience store and post office. Tonbridge mainline station is approximately 2 miles away with a 35 minute journey into London Bridge, and the historic Castle with its beautiful surrounding parkland is just 15 minutes’ walk.
