About the property
Hammerhall Smiddy is a truly impressive four bedroom house enjoying a fantastic country location in the heart of rural Berwickshire located within easy reach of the main rail line at Berwick-upon-Tweed, ideal for those needing to travel to Edinburgh or London. The property is a unique contemporary design and within a generous plot extending to approximately 1.25 acre with surrounding lawned gardens and panoramic views over the neighbouring countryside. The property hits the button for those looking for something different and delivers on the ‘wow’ factor, particularly within the pentagonal kitchen/dayroom with its vaulted ceiling and cupola, not to mention the attractive conservatory frontage that greets you as travel up the private driveway. The layout has been cleverly planned with the master bedroom suite being peacefully located away from the other bedrooms, making this property ideally suited as a main family home but also with excellent scope for those looking to run a B&B in a stunning location.
'Blanerne’ is a small rural hamlet located close to both Duns and Chirnside. Set amidst stunning rolling countryside with various outdoor pursuits available on your door step. Local amenities and schooling can be found at both Duns and Chirnside whilst, for those that need to commute, the main East Coat rail line is located at nearby Berwick Upon Tweed, approximately ten miles distant.
The property is situated at the end of a private drive on the B6355 between Preston and Chirnside.

A gated entrance opens onto the sweeping driveway which extends past the main lawned area of garden to a large area of private parking.
A traditional double door opens into the entrance vestibule with cloaks cupboard to side. Internal double doors then give access to a stunning feature kitchen, centrally located and the main hub of the property; flooded with natural light from the surrounding windows, glazed doors leading off and the central cupola which is set into the vaulted ceiling and positioned over the main kitchen island. The kitchen itself is fitted with a fantastic range of oak fronted units with colourful painted splash backs and under unit lighting. The central island provides an ideal breakfast or informal dining area whilst the room also provides enough space for sofas or such. The utility room extends off the kitchen with access to the integral garage as well as a cloakroom with WC and pedestal sink. French doors from the main kitchen/day room open to both the conservatory and the lounge. The conservatory really has been designed to make the very most of the outlooks over the surrounding garden grounds and countryside beyond; glazed on all sides with double doors allowing direct access to the garden. This room too features a vaulted style ceiling and due to the generous proportions provides enough space for a formal dining and seating area. The lounge benefits from double aspect windows which ensure good natural light whilst the main focal point is provided by a wood burning stove which is set within a deep recessed fireplace with oak beamed mantel over. A door off then leads to an office area with stairs off to the master bedroom suite.
The master bedroom suite is located on the first floor, the self contained suite provides a real touch of luxury and incorporates a particularly spacious bedroom with velux windows to the front and rear, and an en-suite shower room and dressing room with extensive built in storage. Three further bedrooms are located at ground floor level within the western wing off a connecting hall from the kitchen/day room. All bedrooms are double rooms, benefiting from outlooks over the grounds and built in storage with the second bedroom including a stylish en-suite shower room with large double shower cubicle with the others next to the main family bathroom with a four piece white suite incorporating a corner bath.
The outside space is equally impressive with the grounds making the most of the views and the privacy. Having been professionally landscaped the well designed gardens incorporate neat lawned areas with herbaceous planted borders. A large decked terrace on both front and rear provides the ideal spot for al fresco dining and the option of sun or shade with open outlooks beyond.
