Exclusive development perfectly balances contemporary style with countryside living.

Nestled peacefully in the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Walled Garden is a fine collection of contemporary homes that perfectly balance rural living with modern day luxury.

Sitting at the heart of the 120-acre Badgemore Park estate on the edge of Henley-on-Thames, with views of the adjoining golf course and surrounding countryside, each of the five bespoke homes have been individually finished to the most meticulous of standards.

Developer and co-owner of Badgemore Park – Jon Connell, has spared no expense in creating an exclusive scheme with enduring appeal.

“It’s not been without it’s challenges, but the end result makes it all worthwhile,” he said.

“From the very beginning we wanted to build something truly special that would stand the test of time and which would fit in seamlessly with our stunning surroundings – and I think we’ve achieved that. These are beautiful homes in a traditional barn style but with a contemporary feel, a lovely blend of the old and the new. My family has owned Badgemore Park for 23 years and in that time we have become a renowned venue for golf, fitness, weddings and events – and we’re now looking forward to this next chapter in our journey.”

The homes  (which are being sold by Savills in Henley) are a mix of four and five bedroom properties, with prices starting from £995,000.

Designed by Oxfordshire architects Anderson Orr, all homes benefit from light and bright open plan living areas, while features of note include stylish log burners or Chesney fireplaces in all sitting rooms and contemporary handmade painted shaker kitchens equipped with the very latest integrated appliances. The first floor master bedrooms include en suite bathrooms and a glass Juliet balcony. The larger properties benefit from good sized dressing rooms, and every bathroom is designed to a very high specification.

As well ultrafast full fibre connections, all the houses have Heatmiser smart heating systems that control the ground floor underfloor heating and first floor radiators. There are also solar panels on the roof and an electric vehicle charging point in each property’s allocated car port or integral double garage. All these points make the homes particularly energy efficient. The gardens meanwhile have been beautifully landscaped with large patios, and are enclosed by fencing and the original brick walled garden.

Along with a 10-year warranty, anyone who purchases one of the homes will also have access to all of Badgemore Park’s facilities, including an 18-hole golf course, boutique gym, golf coaching and PT fitness training. Also included is access to the club house and the Coach House with breakfast, lunch and dinner facilities. And of course, the bar. Badgemore Park also benefits from eight B&B guest rooms, perfect for when extra guests stay over.

Mr Connell continued: “In the build up to the club’s 50th anniversary in 2022 we are undergoing a major programme of investment and redevelopment. It’s a very exciting time for us. Buyers will be able to take full advantage of that and make complete use of all our facilities. For example, golf or gym membership could potentially be included within the cost of the home.”

Charlie Chavasse, from the residential team at Savills Henley, said with people reassessing their priorities in light of recent experiences they were anticipating plenty of interest in the properties, particularly those in search of a luxury home in a very secure development with more open space.

“Badgemore Park is a truly unique, peaceful setting with a lovely community, country club feel and we are expecting the properties to be in high demand,” he said.

“Since lockdown restrictions were eased we have seen a huge uptick in interest from committed buyers, with the level of enquiries continuing to underline the extent to which recent experiences have caused people to re-evaluate what is most important in their homes. The benefits of living in well-connected towns and villages, with easy access to the outdoors and a relatively short commute to London for when trips to the office are essential, are now more evident than ever. For those with stable incomes who’ve been able to shield their finances, there is still a strong resolve to move, with places such as Henley-on-Thames continuing to be incredibly popular.”
