A detached family home with well-arranged and beautifully presented accommodation over two floors, set within stunning south facing landscaped gardens. The property enjoys a secluded setting within easy reach of village amenities. It offers a pleasant green aspect in the summer and benefits from far- reaching views across the valley in the winter months. The current owner has undertaken many decorative improvements to the interiors, including adding a new kitchen and a number of cosmetic updates. Downstairs enjoys a versatile layout, separated into areas for entertaining and family life. Accessed via a spacious entrance hall, the double aspect sitting room extends to 20ft and features a wood-burning stove and doors opening to the terrace. Open to this is the dining room, which also enjoys lovely garden views and the kitchen is part open to the breakfast room and a separate study with fitted storage. The kitchen is a particular highlight, fitted with a shaker-style ‘Rencraft’ bespoke kitchen, complemented by granite work surfaces. The practical space has been designed with soft close drawers and a variety of integrated NEFF appliances are included. Separate to the kitchen is a utility room with further space for storage and appliances.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms, including two en suite bedrooms and a family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms feature fitted storage, with bedroom five currently used as a dressing room.
Brooklands Farm Close enjoys a secluded setting of similar detached properties, just half a mile outside the popular Kent village of Fordcombe, with its primary school (rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted), church, public house, village hall and cricket ground. Tunbridge Wells is around five miles east with shopping facilities and recreational amenities, while the area is renowned for its educational excellence, including grammar schools and a good choice of private and state schools. A choice of stations includes Hildenborough, Tonbridge or Tunbridge Wells for fast trains to London in around 45 minutes. Access to the A21 provides a direct route to the M25 national motorway network.
The current owner has undertaken significant landscaping to the rear garden, which encompasses just under half an acre and features beautiful views from the rear boundary back across its own land to the house. From the wonderfully sunny paved terrace, oak sleepers create steps down through the mature flowerbeds and natural stream crossed by an attractive wooden bridge. On the opposite side of the bridge is a wildflower meadow bisected by mown paths leading up to an elevated position looking back across the garden. From the boundary a footpath is accessible leading to the village centre. To the front, a sweeping gravel driveway provides off-street parking for several vehicles and leads to a detached double garage.
