Tenure: Freehold

Badgers Drift is a substantial family house that has been extended and remodelled by the present owners to create a sensational home, complemented by delightful secluded gardens. The house is tastefully decorated in a contemporary country style and benefits from under-floor heating throughout (excluding the top floor). In addition to the main house, there is ancillary accommodation in the form of a detached annexe.

The ground floor accommodation has been thoughtfully planned and the principal rooms are arranged around a welcoming, galleried reception hall featuring a solid oak staircase and a polished tile floor. The triple aspect sitting room, with its inglenook style fireplace, enjoys direct access to the rear patio via French doors and across the hall is the expansive kitchen/dining/family room which is a key feature of the house. This room is flooded with light thanks to a roof lantern, numerous windows and two sets of French doors opening out to the garden. The Mark Wilkinson kitchen is fitted with a range of units, granite worksurfaces and a sizeable central island with an inset double Belfast sink and integral breakfast bar. It is equipped with a number of appliances including a Lacanche range-style cooker, an integrated Gaggenau larder fridge/freezer and a Miele dishwasher. There is a Mark Wilkinson pantry, an adjoining study and an inner hallway leading to a striking cloakroom and a utility room (also Mark Wilkinson).

On the first floor is the spacious master bedroom boasting a vaulted ceiling and full-height windows offering a superb outlook over the gardens, a view that may also be enjoyed from its balcony. This room benefits from an en suite, fully fitted dressing room, along with a luxurious marble bathroom. There are four further en suite bedrooms on this level whilst the second floor is arranged to provide an additional en suite bedroom and under-eaves storage space.

The detached annexe features a beamed vaulted ceiling and comprises a sitting/games room with a log burner, a fully fitted kitchen area, a first floor bedroom and a shower room. French doors open out to an attractive paved courtyard style garden with a pond/ water feature, a purpose-built stone fireplace, a wisteria covered pergola with built-in seating, and well-stocked flower beds.

Badgers Drift enjoys an enviable rural location yet is well placed for local amenities and transport links with Heathrow airport less than 16 miles away and executive/private aviation facilities available at Fairoaks, White Waltham and Farnborough Airport. The motorway network is easily accessible and there are also regular train services to London Waterloo from Ascot, Martins Heron and Bracknell stations; services to London Paddington are available from Maidenhead Station (due to benefit from the new Crossrail high-speed route).

Ascot, Windsor and the surrounding towns and villages are known for their shops, boutiques, bars, fine restaurants and traditional country public houses, including The Cricketers which is situated just over 300 metres from Badgers Drift. For leisure there are prestigious golf clubs including Wentworth, Sunningdale, Swinley Forest and The Berkshire; polo is available at Coworth Park, Royal County of Berkshire and Guards Polo Clubs, and horse racing may be enjoyed at Ascot and Windsor.

The area is renowned for its excellent schools including Lambrook (less than a mile away), Papplewick, Heathfield, St. George’s and St. Mary’s in Ascot, to name a few.

The property is approached via electrically operated timber gates opening onto an expansive driveway, leading to the double garage and providing ample parking space. Adjoining the garaging is a store room and an open-fronted log store whilst above, there is an additional room.

The beautifully tended gardens, designed by Peter Sims, a Hampton Court medal winner, provide a wonderful setting for the house. They are an appealing combination of lawn, terracing, an outdoor swimming pool (built by Falcon Pools), an ‘all weather’ tennis court by En-Tous-Cas, and a natural wildlife area with pond and bridge leading to a log cabin/summer house.
