A substantial, detached, five bedroom family house, situated on a well-regarded residential road between Southborough and Bidborough, convenient for schools, road and rail links.
17 Harland Way is a striking, generous, detached, five bedroom house with flexible, family-friendly accommodation, which is set across three floors, enjoying an elevated position with far reaching views and delightful garden, with integral garaging and parking. The property is well presented throughout, enjoying large windows that provide attractive views and an abundance of natural light.
The main living accommodation is on the first floor, accessed via an oak staircase from the large entrance hall. The spacious sitting room is fitted with a feature gas fireplace and a sliding door to the rear paved terrace and gardens beyond. An archway leads to the formal dining room with a further sliding door opening onto the wide-spanning balcony to the front enjoying far reaching views over the neighbouring countryside towards Pembury.
The kitchen/breakfast room provides good storage and plenty of preparation space, dual oven gas Rangemaster and integrated fridge freezer, together with a breakfast bar for more informal dining. The ground floor provides a useful utility room with storage and space for a washing machine, fridge, freezer and tumble dryer.
There are five bedrooms, which are set across all three floors; the principal bedroom on the first floor being of particular note, enjoying views of the High Weald Area of Natural Beauty and a bank of fitted wardrobes. There is a further double bedroom on this floor, also with fitted wardrobes, together with a well-appointed family bathroom and a separate shower room. The second floor is home to two further good sized bedrooms, one of which is currently utilised as a home office by the present owners, both rooms with access to the eaves storage. The fifth bedroom is situated on the ground floor, and has an en suite shower room.
Outside, the much loved south-westerly garden is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of different areas to enjoy. A large paved terrace adjoins the house, overlooking the ponds and gardens beyond. There is a 'cottage garden' to the right boundary providing wonderful Spring colour, whilst the remaining beds are full of a variety of plants and shrubs including a red robin, a tulip tree, blossoms, azaleas, rhododendrons, and a camellia tree. To the rear of the garden, a circular paved terrace with a garden pavilion offers a further area to retreat to, with a pathway leading to the hidden compost store and storage shed.
To the front, the brick paved driveway with herbaceous borders offers parking for four vehicles, with further parking available inside the garages.

Harland Way is such a great location for families, not only do you have easy access to a choice of three large towns, which all have very good facilities, stations and provide an extensive choice of schools, but you have the lovely village of Bidborough close by and access to Southborough Common just along the road. This much loved, sizeable home offers so much flexibility and potential.Natasha SelbieProperty agent
