South Frith comprises a small group of just six houses built in the late 1980s, located down a tree-lined private lane in this highly accessible and convenient position.

Situated on the border of Tonbridge and Southborough, with direct access to the A21 and A26, the property is spoilt for access to comprehensive shopping, leisure and recreational facilities, as well as excellent schooling.

Tonbridge station is only about 1 mile away (walkable/cyclable) with fast and frequent services to London (London Bridge from 35 minutes).

Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells both have renowned grammar schools for both boys and girls, plus an excellent choice of primary and preparatory schools.


Built to a high specification in 1988, No.5 South Frith has been a much-loved family house for two decades.

Offering generously proportioned rooms in a very traditional, elegant and well-planned layout, ideal for family living and entertaining.

Decorative detailing including panelled doors, ornate cornicing, ceiling roses and dado rails.

Projecting bay windows in the drawing room and master bedroom.

Feature fireplace in the drawing room with coal effect gas fire, marble insert and hearth.

Excellent built-in storage including hall cupboards, glass fronted library cabinet in the study, comprehensive units in the kitchen and utility room and bedroom wardrobes.

Exceptional, high pitched and spacious attic. It is considered that there may be potential to convert this, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Two other houses in the estate are known to have carried out such a conversion.

There is scope for updating and enhancing the property, although some improvement works have been carried out over the years including the addition of a double-glazed conservatory and replacement of some of the bathroom suites.

Adjoining the house is a spacious double garage with twin electric doors and rear pedestrian access to the garden. Again, the roof height could, subject to consents, offer potential for creating a first floor area.

The house is detached other than the garage, which is attached to an outbuilding belonging to one of the other houses in the development.

There are planted borders to the front of the house but the principle garden wraps around the rear of the house, comprising two levels of lawn interconnected via sweeping stone paved steps and shrub/rockery beds.

There is a broad paved terrace on the lower level and a pergola covered area on the top lawn that both lend themselves to summer dining / entertaining, whilst the level lawns are large enough for children and pets to play in. There is also a wooded area to one end of the upper level.

As well as the double garage and parking in front of the garages, which are included in the freehold title for No.5, there is additional parking in the communal courtyard area of the estate.

Services: Mains gas fired central heating. Mains water and electricity. Private shared cesspit drainage.

Agent’s Note Japanese Knotweed has been detected in a small area behind the garage, but treatment is being carried out and a 10 year insurance backed Guarantee has been obtained.

Heading south on the A21 from Junction 5 of the M25, take the 4th exit (A26 to Southborough / Tunbridge Wells). Keep left towards Tunbridge Wells. The entrance to South Frith will be found shortly after the overpass on the left-hand side, marked by a large stone obelisk. Follow the lane into the development and continue straight ahead, passing the main courtyard. No.5 will be found on the left-hand side. Parking is in front of the garages to the right of the house.
