The Property

Tucked away in a peaceful, rural hamlet located in a wooded valley, lies this attractive detached modern house set within privately owned grounds of just under three quarters of an acre. Designed in a traditional cottage style and built of Cotswold stone, the property completely compliments its surrounding natural environment.

The well-presented accommodation is found across the three levels. Downstairs offers carefully planned living accommodation to suit the modern-day family requirements. Due to the great size of the kitchen/ breakfast room it is utilised as a family room too. It enjoys underfloor heating under a stone floor with shaker style kitchen units incorporating built in appliances such as Miele dishwasher, fridge and freezer. The much-adored ‘total control’ electric aga with its extra module and induction hob is very much the heart of the room even though it does compete in the summer with the French doors opening to outside. Off here is a walkin pantry with a further integrated 70/30 fridge/freezer and a pull out storage unit with a cupboard discreetly hiding the washer dryer and boiler. Across the hallway a delightful and more formal sitting room is located with a Cotswold stone fireplace, raised stone hearth and wood burner being the focal point. French doors to outside are also a great feature. The central hallway has underfloor heating and gives access to the dining room and study to the rear of house passing the cloakroom on the way. The dining room is another great reception room with French doors out onto a rear courtyard. Beyond, lies the increasing important study fitted out with bespoke cupboards and shelving.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms all with ensuites; two of them with built in wardrobes. One of these guest rooms also has a door giving access onto a path which leads to the front of the house. This first level also houses a further good-sized bedroom and the family bathroom. From the landing there is an attractive staircase which mimics the original one and divides, giving separate access to the attic bedrooms either side. To live at a Badger’s Brook is a complete lifestyle choice, so sit back, relax and immerse yourselves with nature.

Outside

The landscaped grounds and its location are major features of this dwelling. A variety of different outdoor rooms have been created with the woodland carpeted with wild garlic as the main backdrop.
