Honeywood Cottage has a gated access and stands in delightfully secluded gardens at the end of Post Office Lane in this quiet village environment. The property is restored to an exceptionally high standard and very well maintained and is believed to date back to 1725 with brick and stone elevations, Ogee gutters and a clay pantiled roof. The property has a sympathetic modern extension incorporating the very large kitchen diner, first floor bedroom and bathroom accommodation. Central heating is oil fired and the property features quality painted wood window frames with sealed unit double glazing.

Internally the house provides just over 2,100 sq.ft floor space with rooms all with a southerly aspect providing light and airy accommodation throughout.

The accommodation provides on the ground floor a front entrance porch, cloakroom, sitting room, family room, dining kitchen and utility room. The first floor provides a long landing, five bedrooms including master en-suite, guest bedroom en-suite and family bathroom. Outside there is a brick built tandem double garage and a wooden clad garden chalet providing an excellent hobbies room or home office space and additional accommodation. The gardens are neatly laid out and landscaped for ease of maintenance.
