Home sweet home

The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - News -

THE de­light­fully named Honey House in the pic­turesque vil­lage of Swin­ton, near Kelso in the Scot­tish Bor­ders, has no ac­tual as­so­ci­a­tion with the sweet sticky stuff. How­ever, the 10-year-old de­tached villa does have a light, honey-coloured façade, six bed­rooms, two pub­lic and three bath­rooms spread be­tween three floors (while ap­pear­ing to only have two), and a con­verted 100-year-old barn in the rear gar­den. Fully up­graded, the Honey Barn in­cor­po­rates a 48ft-long dou­ble-height games room, cloak­room and store­room, spa­cious fit­ting room with multi-fuel stove, doors onto a bar­be­cue ter­race, and stairs up to a mez­za­ninelevel fit­ted kitchen - the pos­si­bil­i­ties for this ad­di­tional build­ing are end­less. Of­fers around £325,000 – de­tails from Hast­ings & Co.

SHINE ON: Honey House’s barn, right, has 16 so­lar pan­els on the roof, which gen­er­ate elec­tric­ity into the grid to pro­vide an an­nual in­come of around £1,800.
