Full description

Dating from 1994 this excellent detached residence is set within lovely gardens and provides quality accommodation maintained and presented to a superb standard throughout. Essentially a dormer bungalow by design, Honeybee Cottage exudes a rustic charm with copious use of natural wood, brickwork, slate flooring etc and offers flexible space with bedrooms positioned at both ground and first floor level.

Principal features include a spacious and welcoming Reception Hall from where the spindle balustrade staircase rises to the first floor, an elegant main Lounge with a classic style oak fireplace (complete with a delightful honeybee carving) and a second reception room, currently used as a sumptuously presented home office but equally suitable as a dining room. The signature feature of Honeybee Cottage is undoubtedly the capacious 'L' shaped 'living kitchen' which includes a wonderfully appointed kitchen area, a sitting area complete with an Inglenook style fireplace and a rear Sun Room which enjoys lovely views across the garden. The kitchen section is equipped with a range of oak cabinets by locally renowned Cobweb Crafts plus a host of built-in appliances and there is plenty of room for a large everyday dining table. A useful Utility Room and a Toilet adjoin the Living Kitchen whilst the picture of the ground floor accommodation is completed by the well proportioned Master Bedroom with French doors to the garden, a walk-in wardrobe and a superb en-suite Bathroom complete with a whirlpool bath and a separate shower cubicle.

At first floor level there is a central Landing plus two very good size double bedrooms both with dormer windows and built-in wardrobes and a delightful Bathroom which again includes a bath and a separate shower cubicle. The property has the expected benefits of gas central heating, uPVC framed double glazing and a security alarm.

The gardens are another of Honeybee Cottage's main assets being well established and mature and including a grassed area interspersed with trees positioned to the western side of the access road itself. There is a substantial Double Garage with loft storage above plus a shed and another garden store whilst a block paved terrace with surrounding walls is a delightful spot for al-fresco dining.

Willow Park is located on the western fringe of the popular village of Waltham which itself provides a diverse range of specialist retailers, tearooms and restaurants and other facilities.

Overall Honeybee Cottage is a beautiful cherished home which provides that 'must have' feature for todays buyers - a huge principal room for sociable open plan living - a real gem! EPC Rating - D
