Rodmell is an active village nestled within the South Downs National Park. Within the pretty village is an award winning pub, village hall, local primary school and the National Trust’s Monks House. This 17th Century cottage was once home to Leonard and the novelist Virginia Woolf and the wider Bloomsbury group frequently visited Monks House.

Badgers Dene is positioned in a quiet residential cul de sac and has far reaching views across the local countryside.

Helen Oakley, director, said, “This large family home is situated in a stunning position within the village. The house has been arranged so the living space has direct access to the stunning views and also there is a large terrace which also benefits from the same views across the East Sussex landscape.”

The family home offers very versatile living accommodation. At present there is a large family sitting room, separate dining room and a generous size kitchen/breakfast room.

Helen Oakley continued, “The kitchen/breakfast room is open plan with plenty of room for a dining table with views over the front of the house and the quiet close. The added benefit is a separate utility room which has plumbing for a washing machine and space for an extra fridge/freezer. “

Badgers Dene has four double bedrooms, family bathroom and separate shower room. The master bedroom has far reaching views towards Lewes.

Helen Oakley added, “For those people who want to run a small business from their home this house offers you the potential to do so. Currently the owners run a holiday let from a separate annexe positioned within the house but benefits from its own entrance and cannot be entered from the main house. This can be run as a nightly bed and breakfast or a short term holiday let.

“For those that have an elderly relative that still want to maintain their own independence but are close enough to you should they need you would be an ideal space for them to live in.”

Externally the grounds consist of a raised paved sun terrace with stunning views and space for garden furniture. Steps lead down to a large lawned garden with established flower beds, mature trees, fruit trees, shrubs and bushes. There is a further area that is currently being used as a vegetable garden with a greenhouse style shed. There is also a useful under house storage area. To the front of the house is a double garage with parking for an extra two cars.

Helen Oakley said, “Badgers Dene is a truly unique home in a beautiful village, breath-taking views, substantial living space and the option of running a small holiday let within the house without it encroaching on your own private living space is truly a gem in East Sussex.”
