    About this property

    • Built in the late 1990's by highly regarded Berkeley Homes, Newton Willows is a smart, well-maintained, cul-de-sac of attractive family homes sitting between farmland to one side and the parkland of Groombridge Place to the other.

      The property is presented to a high standard throughout and offers generous and flexible living space that can be arranged to suit individual needs.

      On the ground floor, the more formal sitting room is found to the front of the house and enjoys an attractive feature fireplace with a striking, newly installed woodburning stove. French doors provide the option to open/close this room off from the dining room whenever required, ideal when entertaining on a small or larger scale. Historically half of the original double garage has been converted to a versatile snug/TV room which also offers scope as a study/home office, ideal for today's working from home needs.

      The fresh, bright, modern kitchen overlooks the garden to the rear, with modern base and wall units providing good storage and preparation space with a range of integrated appliances, and space for a dishwasher. The kitchen opens to the utility area with good storage space and room for further appliances with access to the front and rear of the house. A WC completes the ground floor.

      The first floor is home to the principal bedroom with an en suite shower room and the three further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. The roof space provides valuable storage and it is noted that similar houses nearby have developed/extended into this space for further accommodation.

      Outside - The southerly-facing garden, can be accessed directly via glazed double doors in both the dining room and TV/Snug. The garden is of a good but manageable size for this family house, with a level lawn and patio seating and dining area, with room for a large shed and plenty of potential for further landscaping and planting. To the front there is driveway parking for two cars and garaging.
