* Watch our walk-through video *

The name Honey Bee Cottage conjures up a fairy tale picture in the imagination and the reality does not disappoint!  Surrounded by mature rambling gardens, cut stone out buildings and secret hideaway spots, this original farmhouse has been lovingly restored and renovated by its current owners with particular emphasis on authentic style and detail.  It offers every modern convenience whilst retaining many original features all of which combine to make this an exceptional family home.

Surrounded by its original stone walls, the gravel driveway opens up to reveal this beautifully restored 200 year old farm house.  The entrance porch to the front opens into a spacious inner hall with quarry tiled floor, staircase and feature arched fireplace.  The guest wc/whb is off the hall as is the romantic ground floor guest bedroom with its lofted timber ceiling, solid fuel stove and secret access to full en-suite shower room.  The main living room is to the left of the entrance hall and features an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, and a lovely bay window seat. The dining room, which also has its own stove, opens out into a pretty sunroom with a large west facing picture window and double French doors out to the sheltered courtyard at the rear. The kitchen is split level with generous wall and floor storage in a light painted grey colour and black Rayburn cooker.

The office/study/work room is situated just off the kitchen at the end of the house. Finally, the back hall with its quirky half door incorporates boot room and fully plumbed utility. There are a further four double bedrooms upstairs, all presented with style and flair and two of which are en-suite.  The family bathroom is generous in size and has an extra large rainfall shower unit.  Outside, the magical gardens include a lofted cut stone garage, timber log shed, Enclosed outdoor barbeque/ dining area, flag stone patios and terraced gardens with raised vegetable beds and poly-tunnel.  All in all, a treat is in store for prospective purchasers!

Set in a quiet rural location just five minutes from Ardee out along the Golf Links Road and just off the N2 north of the town, Honey Bee Cottage has the best of both worlds when it comes to location, being within commuting distance of Dublin, less than 1 hour via M1/N2, twenty minutes from the coast and mid-way between Drogheda and Dundalk.  Local amenities in the Ardee area include both primary and secondary schools, a thriving bustling town centre, public bus service both north and southwards, and of course a renowned parkland golf course just down the road!
