THE PROPERTY

Honeypot Cottage is a unique character home located in a peaceful position tucked away from the public road yet close to the heart of this beautiful Bride Valley village. The original property was built of solid stone more than 200 years ago and has been extended to great effect in more modern times, creating a useful second reception room. Having been under the same ownership for the past 40 years, the property has served as a superb full-time home, but there is now great scope for a new owner to carry out sympathetic improvements and restore this marvellous cottage to its former glory.

 

The well proportioned accommodation includes a sitting room with glass doors overlooking the garden; a ground floor bathroom; a dining room with an impressive inglenook fire and two window seats; an adjoining kitchen; and on the first floor 2 bedrooms, one of which enjoys generous double proportions.

OUTSIDE

A pathway between the neighbouring properties leads to the gate to Honeypot Cottage. The gardens, which can be found to the front and side of the property, are enclosed and designed for easy maintenance, being laid to paved sun terrace with established bordering shrubs. Fantastic views across the village to the hills beyond can be enjoyed to their fullest advantage from here, particularly from the slightly sunken terrace found in the side garden.

 

A single garage in a nearby block is available by separate negotiation; Guide Price £15,000.
