A period character extended house with four double bedrooms and lovely elevated gardens adjoining fields to the rear.
Badger Cottage is believed to have been built in the mid 1800s with a later extension in 1999. The accommodation combines 19th century character with more contemporary living and the house occupies a good central village location.
The front of the house faces south and internally the original front door opens into the sitting room, a lovely character room with a wood burning stove, window seats and shutters. The kitchen / dining room is part of the extension and is a super family space running across the width of the house. The kitchen has a range of floor standing units, attractive wooden floors, walk-in larder and two Belfast sinks. Just off the kitchen is a utility room with space and plumbing for appliances, wash hand basin and WC. From the dining room a door leads to an inner hall which is ideal for a home computer and the staircase leads to the first floor landing.
All four bedrooms are good double rooms and each has fitted wardrobes or storage. The bedrooms to the front of the house have lovely views out to Bulbarrow while those at the rear overlook the garden and the fields beyond.
The family bathroom has been recently renovated and has a large walk-in shower, bath, hand basin and WC.
Outside there is parking at the front for three cars and a lovely elevated garden to the rear.
