DESCRIPTION Rarely does a property such as "Honeypotts" come on the market. This substantial stone built and slate roofed house provides fantastic family sized accommodation over two floors, complemented with an abundance of driveway, garage and carport parking, extensive and varied gardens, outbuildings and a heated swimming pool.

Built in 1928 and initially named "Chevin Cottage", the property was extended in 1932 into its present form. Bought by its current owners in 1976, "Honeypotts" has been progressively updated and modernised to include gas central heating and double glazing, whilst still retaining much of its original character and charm. Commanding an exclusive and private position within its elevated garden plot, far-reaching and panoramic views of Morecambe Bay and beyond can be enjoyed from the gardens and front facing accommodation.

Entering the property through the rear covered porch, an internal door opens into the kitchen and a separate door leads down to two cellars.

The kitchen has been beautifully fitted with a range of wall, drawer and base units and a complementary work surface fitted with a four ring gas hob with extractor hood over, a one and a half sink with mixer tap and a double sink with Quooker instant hot tap. Incorporated within the units is a double oven/ grill with microwave above and there is recess space for a dishwasher. Beyond the kitchen is a useful utility room with space for a fridge, freezer and plumbed in for a washing machine.

A door from the kitchen opens into the morning room. Centrally located between the kitchen and formal dining room, the morning room provides a casual dining and entertaining space. Within this room is a log burning stove set on an exposed stone hearth with arched stone detailing above.

The two principle reception rooms boast immense character and opulence with impressive oak doors, substantial bay windows and grand fireplaces. The dining room is the larger of the two rooms and has grandeur on its side, with its charm of oak panelled walls, parquet flooring and beams and exposed stone detailing around the windows. It is fitted with a log burning stove.

The lounge, which has an open fire, not only offers one of the best rooms to enjoy the views of Morecambe Bay but also makes a statement with intricate mouldings to the ceiling. The oak parquet floor extends into this room and also the hall.

Doors from both the lounge and dining room lead into the entrance hallway, which mirrors the continuation of the oak panelled walls and beams, and the exposed stone detailing from the dining room. A heavy panelled entrance door with leaded glass pane detailing opens into the conservatory, which offers a place to relax and admire magnificent bay views. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a useful shower room with washbasin and separate WC.

The first floor accommodation comprises of four double bedrooms, which includes an impressive master bedroom with a five piece en-suite. Also on this level is a study and family bathroom.

The large study now equipped with a snooker table not only provides the perfect place to work at home, it also has the potential to be another reception room, games room or even a fifth bedroom.

The bathroom has been upgraded and fitted with underfloor heating and a three piece suite, which includes a corner bath, walk in shower and wash hand basin. Within the room there is a cupboard housing the hot water cylinder and providing shelving space and a washing line. Positioned alongside is a separate WC.

Outside, the current vendors have put a lot of hard work and passion into creating these large and varied gardens, which encompass the property.

Generous front and rear lawns are a safe haven for children and pets to run around and a large woodland at the top provide an abundance of wood for the fire.

There are extensive vegetable gardens with raised beds, two greenhouses, a polytunnel, outbuildings and a workshop interspersed around the garden to keep a keen gardener busy.

Lastly, the pièce de résistance is the heated indoor swimming pool with separate changing room, toilet and shower cubicle.
