Description

Honeypot Cottage is an immaculately presented five bedroomed family home commanding spectacular views of the picturesque market town of Bakewell. The property has been converted from a former gardeners cottage to Castle Hill House. Skillfully transformed to create a wonderful home, which offers a sublime mix of contemporary and period architecture.

The extension to the stone-built cottage - completed in 2006 was designed to replicate the Peach House that once stood on the site. The architect chosen for the project was the award-winning firm Lathams of Derby. The building is a steel and stone structure with aluminium and high-performance glazing constructed in the manner of many modern-day state of the art buildings.

The property has been designed to maximise the light and views across the southwesterly facing gardens and the superb views of Bakewell. The sitting room, garden room and breakfast kitchen have been sited to the rear of the property and the bedrooms and entrance hall have been located to the front of the property in the original cottage, dating back to 1830.

Situated close to and overlooking the historic market town of Bakewell in the Peak District. Within a short walking distance of fantastic local amenities including café’s, restaurants, independent shops and public houses. The property also falls within the catchment area for superb local schooling, including the renowned Lady Manners secondary school and also having beautiful country walks from the doorstep with the Monsal cycle and walking trail being just a 5-minute walk from the property. Also having convenient transport links to Sheffield, Nottingham and Manchester.

From the house and grounds is an exquisite panoramic view over the town and distant hills. A short walk provides access down a private path into Bakewell, where the River Wye meanders through. The professionally landscaped gardens have a gazebo incorporating original Victorian decorative cast-iron columns and a lily pond framed by a Victorian stone church window.
