The Badgers is situated in the popular village of Mathon. This part of east Herefordshire lies close to the Worcestershire border, just west of the renowned Malvern Hills and is recognised for its scenic and unspoilt countryside. Much of Mathon lies within the Malvern Hills AONB. This area offers a sought-after and peaceful rural quality of life, without being isolated, combined with excellent access to Malvern and the market town of Ledbury. The Cathedral cities of Worcester, Hereford and Gloucester, along with Cheltenham and Birmingham are within easy reach.

The Badgers

* This attractive period property sits centrally in the pretty rural hamlet of Mathon, a popular and quintessential East Herefordshire village in reach of the Malvern Hills. * Extended by the previous owner, this property has been in the same ownership for some 40 years and would now benefit from some modernisation although it retains much character and style, typical of a period timber framed home, which is Grade II Listed. * A formal front door leads to the hall/front stairs, off which access is gained to the 4 reception rooms: a dining room, music room, large sitting room with open fire and a TV/snug with wood burning stove (and rear stairs to the first floor).

The Badgers (Continued)

* At the back of the house is the Aga kitchen with tiled flooring, plenty of built in storage, an adjacent pantry and a utility room (also with external door). This modest sized kitchen benefits from a gas-fired Aga, separate electric oven and lovely views over the rear patio and garden. * Behind the utility room is a ground floor shower room with WC. * From the kitchen, a back lobby leads to the rear door and a storage room. This gives access to a sunny patio, the large garden and the triple garage.

The Outside

* A large and private rear lawned garden leads down to the Cradley Brook, which runs through the land. The lawn was formerly a grass tennis court and beyond is an outdoor heated swimming pool with adjacent brick-built pool shed. This pool was used until recent years but is now not in service. * To the side of the lawn are 2 vintage wooden stable blocks with felt roofs, now used for storage and located next to the paddocks. * A modern and good quality triple garage sits behind the house and parking area, brick and timber clad under a tiled roof. West of the house and garden are 2 level paddocks, with additional vehicular access from the far end. From the far paddock, a ford provides access through the brook to the 3rd paddock. In all, the paddocks provide some 7 acres of grazing.

The Outside (Continued)

* The paddocks are bordered by hedging and mature trees, with woodland bordering the length of the brook. * To the East and beyond this property is the Wyche Way public footpath, with bridge over the brook. A pedestrian gate from the garden gives access to this path which provides excellent local walking.
