Surrounded by DOWNLAND VIEWS Badgers Dene is a quiet and exclusive CUL-DE-SAC location occupying a prominent position on the edge of the picturesque and sought after DOWNLAND VILLAGE of RODMELL. Rarely available in this particular location is this much loved and exceptionally well presented detached family home, notably providing four double bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms. The property revels in its surroundings, beautifully embracing the tranquil location and being orientated to the rear towards the most magnificent, uninterrupted views which extend from the first floor across the surrounding countryside and South Downs, as far as Lewes and its Norman Castle. Internally, the property is finished to an extremely high standard, is immaculately presented throughout and decorated in an elegant neutral colour palette. The accommodation is generously proportioned, well-appointed and includes double glazing and oil fired heating throughout. Worthy of note is the capacious, triple aspect 20 ft x 17 ft living/dining room - a welcoming space ideal for the family with a large opening leading to the kitchen/breakfast room. The living room features a wood burning stove set into a fireplace with a stone hearth and the dining area is particularly light and bright. The kitchen/breakfast room comprises a modern kitchen with a range of wall and base units with stone and block wood work tops over. A breakfast bar has been incorporated into the design as have integral appliances which include an oven, hob, fridge freezer and a dishwasher. A door opens to the utility room which provides a functional extension to the kitchen. The utility room has fitted cupboards, a butler sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine and a door which affords access to the rear garden. Also on the ground floor is a shower room with a fitted cloaks cupboard, polished tiled walls and floor and a suite comprising a shower enclosure, wash hand basin set into a vanity unit and a w/c. Stairs with a beautiful exposed handrail and balustrade ascend from the entrance hall to the first floor where the accommodation continues and the views can be fully appreciated. There are four double bedrooms - three of which take full advantage of the beautiful elevated views over the rear garden, across farmland and countryside towards Lewes including the Castle. Completing the accommodation is the family bathroom with a luxury while suite including a 'deep fill' bath with shower over, a designer wash hand basin, w/c, fitted mirror and a chrome heated towel rail. Externally, the gardens have been as equally beautifully maintained as the house. The garden to the rear is generously sized, particularly private, predominantly laid to lawn and arranged as two sections. A paved patio area immediately adjacent to the house provides ample space for al fresco dining/entertaining and has an ornamental pond to the side. There is also a wood store, a garden shed and well stocked flowerbeds providing an abundance of form and colour. A copper beech hedge acts as a division to the remainder of the garden which is mostly laid to lawn. This section has a copper beech tree, a walnut tree, a greenhouse and a kitchen garden with raised beds. To the front there is a further lawned garden with a cedar tree and well stocked flowerbeds to the borders, a 17 ft x 17 ft double garage with power, lighting and pedestrian access to the rear garden and a driveway providing parking for up to four vehicles.
