Property description

Badgers Barn is a stunning substantial modern family home situated in a quiet private development of five similar individually designed executive properties. Built with a period barn style in mind, this glorious countryside residence sits within a generous plot adjoining open countryside. Spacious internal family accommodation compliments the outside gardens with a large private driveway and double garage/workshop.

Well presented internal accommodation consists of a Living Room With vaulted ceiling, Snug/second lounge, Office/Study, Large Bespoke Fitted Kitchen/Dining Room, Utility Room, Two Ground Floor Cloakrooms, Galleried Landing with Floor To Ceiling Windows and Bi-Folding Doors, Four Spacious Double Bedrooms with Ensuite to both Master Bedroom and Bedroom Two and a Four Piece Family Bathroom Suite.

A solid wooden door approached from the front aspect of the property leads into the entrance hallway with plentiful storage for coats and boots, this then leads through into the rear garden hallway with open ceiling to both ground floor and first floor, full length bi-folding doors and galleried landing. Solid oak doors lead to a large living room with triple aspect windows, french doors and open fireplace with granite hearth. Further reception rooms consist of snug/living room two and a large office/study. A bespoke, well appointed Kitchen/Dining Room also enjoys a triple aspect with french doors leading to the gardens and door through to a large utility room and side entrance door.

To the first floor, via the stunning galleried landing, is access to two large double bedrooms, both with well proportioned ensuite facilities and built in wardrobes.

Outside

Approached via a private road into a secure courtyard then onto a private driveway, the property provides ample parking for several vehicles and/or recreational vehicles. This leads to the detached garage/workshop measuring some 480 sq ft and providing a multitude of uses.

The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with a traditionally constructed stone wall boundary and well established plantings. The pathway provides access to both front door and secure side pedestrian access.

To the rear south facing garden are level lawns with unencumbered views across adjoining countryside, well established hedgerows provide private boundaries to both East and West borders of the plot whilst open fencing to the South takes in the breath taking rural location and benefits the sun terrace running the width of the property.
