About this property

  • Badley Bridge Barn is an impressive property of enormous character which has been cleverly blended with contemporary styling. The main barn is of double storey and constructed from a timber frame with weather boarded elevations, brick and flint under a tiled roof. There are exposed beams throughout the property and the floors are oak, tiled and carpeted. Many of the original features of the barn have been retained with exposed brick, beams and stud work and the property further benefits from large double glazed windows providing light and bright accommodation. The double height entrance hall enjoys a snug area and leads through to the sitting room, which benefits from a wood burning stove and French doors. The study is also off the hall. The bespoke Orwell kitchen has a range of base and wall mounted units, a large practical island unit, built-in oven, steam oven & warming drawer, induction hob, two fridge drawers and two dishwashers with matt granite worktops. The utility room and boot room lie beyond the dining room. There are also two bedrooms and two shower rooms downstairs, one of which is an en suite wet room. The first floor is split into two with separate staircases, one leading to the master suite with en suite bathroom and the other to a good sized double bedroom. To the east of the barn lies The Stables which comprises very flexible accommodation including: two reception rooms, utility & shower room, gym, workshop and double garage on the ground floor. The upper storey provides a landing area and study.

    The barn is approached over a wide, sweeping gravel drive with ample parking for numerous vehicles. The established gardens are a particular feature of the house.
