About the property
2 Kimmerghame Mains Cottages, Sinclairshill, lies only a few miles outside of Duns in a lovely semi rural yet accessible position. Originally a farm cottage, this stone built property was extended to incorporate a large dining kitchen to the rear with bedroom and bathroom over. The cottage itself offers surprisingly spacious accommodation and has been run for several years as a successful holiday let; whilst comfortable and well appointed, there is now some scope for general upgrading if desired. Externally there is an area of garden opposite the cottage as well as parking and a garage at the end of the terrace, making this cottage equally well suited either as a main or second home.
Duns has good educational and recreational facilities including primary and secondary schools, swimming pool, tennis courts, 18 hole golf course, library, various speciality shops and walks and a nature reserve within the grounds of Duns Castle and is home to the classical Edwardian Mansion at Manderston. Edinburgh is 45 miles away with the main East Coast rail line at Berwick upon Tweed some 15 miles distant.
Ground Floor Accommodation
The part-glazed front entrance door opens into the hallway with a carpeted staircase extending to the upper floor, glazed internal panels which look into the adjoining lounge and with useful storage provided by the large understair cupboard with internal lighting. The well-proportioned lounge lies to the front of the property with a deep sill window overlooking the garden and with a focal point provided by the open fire which is set into a stone surround with a tiled hearth and timber mantel over which extends into a corner display shelf. Enjoying a lovely open aspect to the rear, the dining kitchen is of particularly good proportions with ample space for a large family dining table and chairs if desired. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of wall and base units with ample worktop space, a stainless steel sink and space for slot-in appliances. A built-in cupboard houses the water tank and provides good additional shelved storage. Double windows to the rear overlook the adjoining farmland whilst a part-glazed door allows direct access to the small area of rear garden.
The carpeted staircase with a spindle banister leads to a spacious first floor landing with the main bedroom situated to the front. This nicely proportioned double room enjoys an open aspect and provides plenty of space for a range of free-standing furniture. Bedroom two is also a nicely proportioned room with plenty of natural light thanks to the large rear facing double windows and benefits from excellent built-in storage to one wall, whilst the third bedroom is a pleasant single room with a velux window to the front. The bathroom has partially tiled walls and is fitted with a four piece suite comprising WC, pedestal sink, bidet and panelled bath with tiled surround and an electric shower over.
