Badgers Way Occupying a quiet, private and elevated setting with excellent southerly views across its gardens and over the English Channel. There is direct access to great coastal and country walks from the doorstep including towards nearby St Catherine’s lighthouse along with various bays and coves. A well-regarded pub is a short walk from the property whilst the village centre of Niton, approximately half a mile away, has a great range of local facilities including a village stores, post office, a pottery, a further pub and pharmacy.

The single storey home is believed to originate from the mid 1980’s but was extensively re-configured, extended and modernised between 2010 and 2015 to create really good quality, versatile accommodation. The re-configuration and extension of the house created a stunning kitchen/living room with walk in pantry and access to the adjacent terraces and making the most of the views, whilst the spacious sitting room also has access to south facing terraces and benefits from the sea views. There are three bedrooms in the main house with two bathrooms in addition to a study and utility room. New electrical, plumbing and heating systems were installed along with new windows and photovoltaic panels.

There is a large double garage/workshop with a more recent extension forming a superb studio, serving as a self-contained guest suite which could also be ideal as holiday letting accommodation, whilst there is also a separate home office. The property is set in delightful mature gardens of just under an acre principally comprising of lawns but with a wide array of mature trees and beautifully planted borders making for a highly attractive setting. Being within the famous ‘Undercliff with a resulting micro climate created by being protected from the cold northerly winds and its southerly aspect, combined with the moderating influence of the sea there are a range of sub-tropical plants.

There are a series of Photovoltaic panels facing south and these provide an average income in excess of £2,400 per annum in addition to producing a significant proportion of electricity consumed free of charge. The payments are based on the highest domestic Feed-in tariff (56 pence/unit, index linked). With 14 years remaining this should generate income of £33,600, in addition to the savings on electricity consumed). The system is controlled by a Platinum 4600S, high performance 4.05KW Inverter. There is also an Electric car fast charging station – (Myenergii Zappi V, still under warranty). This has a remote control facility and works intelligently with the photovoltaic panels so when on Eco+ mode, the vehicle will charged by surplus solar energy generated. The majority of the house is served by gas fired central heating but the kitchen/living room and studio both have electric underfloor heating.
