An outstanding Grade II listed Manor House of exceptional quality and character, standing in beautiful landscaped gardens & grounds with tennis court, detached coach house, extensive garaging, stabling and adjacent paddocks
Badgeworth Manor is one of the counties finest homes, superbly located in a quiet, unspoilt hamlet only 3 miles from Cheltenham, so highly accessible to the town and major communication links whilst enjoying a semi-rural feel and village atmosphere. The property is a wonderful blend of 16th century grandeur with a modern day finish and the owners have taken great care to retain the very special original features, whilst making Badgeworth Manor the most comfortable and inviting home through careful restoration.
Standing just back from the village green with the backdrop of Holy Trinity Church, the main entrance into the property is via a handsome ecclesiastically shaped solid front door opening up to a magnificent reception hall with stone fireplace, polished oak boards, carved architraves and fine leaded light windows with rich red glass borders. This is a wonderfully warm and bright space with the most beautiful double turn staircase, with barley twist spindles and carved handrail, rising to the galleried landing with lovely octagonal glass roof lantern.
Badgeworth Manor has a fine choice of living rooms, the main drawing room of 28' is charming and elegant, with a handsome stone fireplace, original wood panelling to the walls, triple aspect windows creating a light and bright atmosphere and window seat to the far end. Across the hall is the sitting room, a warm and relaxing space with carved stone fireplace, oak flooring, leaded light window and doorway through to a large home office fitted by Smallbone and an excellent space to work from. These rooms overlook the village green to the front and the gardens of Badgeworth Manor to the side and to south west side enjoying a beautiful aspect and access to the terrace and the landscaped lawns are the kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, games room and Marston & Langinger Orangery.
The kitchen is perfectly in keeping with the style of this period home, hand crafted and fitted by the exceptional cabinet makers, Smallbone and hand painted in Heritage colours. The bespoke units include two floor to ceiling pantrys, wall and floor level cabinets topped with granite, a large central island perfect for relaxed entertaining and a range of high quality appliances to include a Miele induction hob, Miele oven and combination microwave, Smeg fridge/freezer and dishwasher and as befitting a country house, a gas fired Aga. Adding to the wonderful functionality of the house is a traditional walk-in pantry, large laundry and cloakroom and French doors from the kitchen, lead out onto the large terrace overlooking the lawns. The flow of the accommodation feels perfect for family life, with relaxed living space blending with rooms that are perfect for entertaining. The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and from here, a doorway leads out to the rear hallway and a large, light and bright morning room that also feels perfect as a games room or TV room for children, with access again out to the garden.
The most beautiful addition to Badgeworth Manor is the 33' Marston and Langinger conservatory with its large windows and doors opening out onto the terrace, high roof and strong architectural features, planted with bougainvillea and stretching across the terrace making it the most stunning garden room for all seasons.
Badgeworth Manor has a beautiful balance of accommodation over the two main floors. The
exceptional staircase rises to the galleried landing and library, off which are three stunning bedroom
suites and a lovely guest bedroom served by a separate shower room. A further staircase rises to two delightful attic bedrooms and shower room and throughout the bedroom accommodation there is excellent storage and beautiful views across the gardens, grounds, village green and church.
