About this property

  • Honeysuckle Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed property dating back to the eighteenth-century. The property is constructed of natural Cotswold stone with Cotswold stone tiled roof to the front elevation and plain tiled roof to the rear and retains many of its original features, including beamed ceilings, fireplaces and flagstone floors. It has been extended twice over time and includes a well equipped kitchen with an electric Aga, together with a generous utility room with a spiral staircase providing secondary access to the first floor where there are four bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room.

    Honeysuckle Cottage fronts to the small triangular village green. There is a pedestrian gate and path leading to the front door flanked by lawn, Cotswold stone walling and flower and shrub borders. The front garden is principally laid to lawn and well screened by mature evergreen hedging enjoying a southerly aspect and there is an attractive paved courtyard to the west, again providing a pleasant sitting out area and this gives access to the stable and paddock. Alternatively, there is a pair of timber five bar gates and paved drive which lead to an extensive outbuilding constructed of timber elevations under a reconstituted stone tiled roof.

    A particular feature of the property are the excellent detached outbuildings which can be used for a variety of purposes (subject to the usual consents) including guest accommodation or home office.

    A substantial outbuilding constructed of timber elevations under a reconstituted Cotswold stone tiled roof with an interesting cupola has been subdivided to form four large rooms and two shower rooms. Adjoining this outbuilding is a double garage, which has light and power, and attached to that is a garden store.

    There is a further detached building constructed of timber elevations with a hipped roof with a cupola comprising a loose box to one side with a stable door and a pair of timber doors leading to a feed room/machinery store. Adjacent to the stable is an area of paved hard standing together with an open fronted covered area.

    A gate leads to a small holding paddock with a further gate leading to a larger paddock. In total the paddocks extend to 1.59 acres.

    A public footpath runs along the northern most boundary in an east to west direction of the paddock behind Honeysuckle Cottage. The footpath has been fenced off.
