Considerable potential in a highly desirable setting.
The original part of Sunhoney is a stone built cottage, with a slate roof, which faces south east over its own enclosed gardens, and is believed to date from the 1890s. Timber clad extensions were added firstly in 1929, when it belonged to artists, who utilised the first floor studio, and then again in 1989, to create a home for a large family. Located off Murtle Den Road, it occupies a fine position in a sought after area. The house offers considerable scope for modernisation to create a well located wonderful family home, in a lovely setting with established gardens.
From the garden a partially glazed wooden front door opens into the original part of the house. Here there is a hallway of which are bedrooms one and two, together with a shower room with a corner shower cubicle, washbasin and WC. Bedroom two has an original fireplace, as does the sitting room, which is situated on the other side of the hallway. This leads through into the extensions, where there is a back hall which connects to a spacious back porch, with a tiled floor, and to a garden porch, linking to the gardens. Also off the back hall is the kitchen. This has a fireplace with a wood burning stove and mantel, a cupboard housing a Scottish Gas wall mounted boiler, stairs to the first floor and a scullery area which has fitted wooden units with tiled worktops and splashbacks, Zanussi washing machine, Proline four ring gas hob with extractor, Firenzi oven, Aquasave dishwasher, under counter fridge and a sink. Off the kitchen is a lobby with a cupboard and a back porch. Beyond is the dining room, which was formerly a bedroom. A bathroom has a bath, washbasin and WC, while beyond is a sitting room with door to the garden, fitted cupboards and shelves, and a further porch.
Stairs from the kitchen lead to a first floor landing off which is a WC with washbasin and bidet, a box room and a studio with sink, shelves and a brick fireplace. This leads on to bedroom three, which also has a fireplace.
Outside is a wooden garage / store with a part concrete floor and a felt roof. The charming front garden is enclosed by trees and hedges. There are paved seating areas and a small pond. There are former borders with box hedges and trees including cherry.
