About this property

  • Badgworth Court is an elegant Grade II listed Georgian manor house that was converted in 2012 into just 8 exclusive and individual dwellings. Much of the charm lies in the high ceilings and large windows that overlook the beautiful communal grounds which extend to approximately 11 acres and include sweeping lawns, wonderful specimen trees and a delightful walled garden that are a haven for local wildlife. In addition, the property has its own areas of private garden, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining family and friends.

    The development has proved a popular choice for both owner occupiers or those seeking a secure second home, attracted by the comfort of neighbouring homes, the peace and tranquillity coupled with the convenience of local amenities that include The Wheatsheaf Pub, a nearby farm shop and just a short drive to the bustling medieval town of Axbridge.

    With dedicated parking for two cars in addition to the garage, a winding path leads to the rear entrance with a generous hallway running the full depth of the property. The accommodation is over three levels offering good flexibility with the choice of three or four bedrooms depending upon personal requirements (the garden level bedroom 4 is currently used as a large study but it does have an adjacent bathroom so would make an excellent guest suite). On the ground floor there are two adjoining reception rooms, both with feature marble fireplaces and a very well appointed kitchen/breakfast room with granite work surfaces and high end end appliances by Neff plus a five burner Britannia stove. A separate utility room has space for a washing machine and dryer and there is a cloakroom off the hall completing the ground floor accommodation

    On the first floor there is a superb principal bedroom suite with a walk in dressing room, en-suite bath/shower room and fireplace with gas fire. An additional family bath/shower room services the second and third bedrooms. All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes are stylishly presented, commanding restful views over the parkland grounds.

    Access to the property is via an impressive long gated driveway with a private entry system. A shingle driveway leads to a path meandering around to the front garden and the entrance to the property. The private front garden is initially laid to patio leading to a lawn which is surrounded by mature shrubs and trees. The rear courtyard garden is south facing and as such a sheltered sun trap. The communal grounds for the development offer mature parkland thought to extend to around 11 acres. The grounds have been used by residents for private functions and include a walled garden and a pavilion in the field at the front of the development.
