    About this property

    • Bunkers Hill House is a modern detached home with character features, situated in a secluded corner of the village of Badby. The property provides endless opportunities for flexible living. The main house has four large en suite bedrooms, as well as a study and tv room, which could both be used as further bedrooms, while the separate two-bedroom, self-contained annexe is situated opposite the main house. There is an indoor heated pool with changing area, sauna and shower room which can all be accessed from within the house or from the front courtyard, providing independent access.

      The property was built about 30 years ago by its first owner who went onto restore Fawsley Hall. Although modern, the property has the feel and character of an older house as it was constructed using architectural antiques including a spiral staircase and Palladian style ironwork columns.

      A front porch/boot room leads into an entrance hall with stairs to first floor and galleried landing, as well as the kitchen, drawing room and dining hall . This also leads through to the rear hallway with wc, spiral staircase to the first floor, the second kitchen/breakfast room with access to the garden, and separate downstairs en suite bedroom. The ground floor has a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with two sets of glass French doors leading out onto the terrace and rear garden. There are contemporary kitchen units with built in Bosch double oven and grill, Hotpoint dishwasher and central island unit with AEG induction hob and granite work surfaces. Adjacent to the kitchen is the useful utility room with space for washing machine, tumble dryer and large fridge freezer. There is planning permission to extend the kitchen out onto the south west facing terrace to create a garden room joining up with the current dining area. Planning reference number: WND/2022/0472. There is split level, triple aspect dining/drawing room with the central focal point being the fireplace with Clearview wood burning stove. Double glass doors lead out onto the terrace from the dining room and three sets of French doors lead into the pool area.

      On the first floor are three en suite bedrooms, one study/bedroom and a tv/games room. The principal suite with en suite bathroom and dressing room area has doors leading out onto the rear balcony with views over the south facing gardens. Bedroom two and the study also have direct access onto the roof terrace. Bedroom three has a spacious en suite bathroom which can be accessed from the first floor landing or the spiral staircase in the inner hall.

      There is a detached annexe consisting of two bedrooms, bathroom, cloakroom and an open plan kitchen/living area and utility space. This provides ideal single level living and offers a potential income stream, or flexibility for generational living or guests.

      The pool is situated within an attractive light room with brick arches and glass doors leading out on to the terrace, with Palladian style ironwork columns. The pool itself is kidney shaped with steps at either end and is heated by an air source heat pump. There is access to the changing room, a double shower, sauna and toilet.

      Outside the property is approached via electric wrought iron gates leading onto a paved courtyard to the front of the property, providing off road parking for about ten cars as well as the double garage with electric doors. There is gated access to the rear gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. There are two ponds and steps lead up to the upper lawns. The far end of the garden has been planted with an orchard backing onto fields with a gate leading onto the ancient Knightley Way. In all approx. 0.85 acres.

      This house lends itself to flexible generational living, or providing an income stream with options for bed and breakfast, holiday/ short/long term lettings - an opportunity not to be missed!
