As the name suggests this former semi-detached beekeeper’s stone cottage is set in a stunning rural location with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. This attractive stone cottage is set in generous, mature gardens with its own driveway, parking and is complemented by a large block-brick built garage/workshop. The current owners use this as an automotive workshop and as artist’s studio but would lend itself to a multitude of uses. The generously proportioned accommodation is arranged over one level and mainly comprises entrance vestibule leading to a spacious, well-proportioned twin aspect lounge with open stone fireplace. The inner hallway which has parquet flooring leads to a twin aspect kitchen with quarry tiled floor and door to the rear. The kitchen provides a wide range of base and wall storage units with matching work tops and tile splashbacks, one and a half bowl inset sink unit, built-in gas hob and electric oven along with a washing machine and dishwasher. Adjacent is a formal, rear aspect dining room with parquet flooring which could be used as a fourth bedroom. There are three generous double bedrooms, one with large walk-in storage cupboard and one with fitted wardrobes. The bathroom has a colour suite and comprises w.c, pedestal wash hand basin and bath with fitted electric shower over. Outside, mature gardens are set to three sides with areas of lawn, mature trees and shrubs, to the side is a large gravel parking area for several vehicles. There is also a large workshop/garage which has water supply and power. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this attractive stone cottage in this wonderful location.
