About the property
9 Whitton Farm Cottages is a traditional end terrace farm cottage enjoying an elevated position with fantastic uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside. The cottage benefits from a nicely sized rear garden whilst internally the accommodation is flexible and could be used as either a two or a three bedroom property depending on requirements.
Morebattle is a popular village in the foothills of the Cheviots lying four miles from Yetholm and eight miles from Kelso. The village includes a primary school and local facilities include store, butchers, post office, hotel/village pub and village hall. Secondary schooling and shopping is available at Kelso one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders, with good educational and sporting facilities and many quality shops. Activities available locally include hill walking, fishing and golf at the championship standard course at the Roxburghe.
A timber entrance door opens into a useful vestibule area with further door opening into the entrance hall with turned staircase leading up to the upper accommodation. The lounge enjoys fantastic views over the open countryside with large window to the front and further window to the rear providing good light and dual aspect. A lovely focal point is provided by a wood burning stove set on a tiled hearth with shelved alcove to the side and further cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. Enjoying a similar aspect to that of the lounge is the third bedroom which is a well proportioned room and would be equally suitable as a dining room if preferred. The kitchen is a good size and benefits from two windows overlooking the garden to the rear which allows good levels of natural light. Fitted with a good range of contemporary wall and base units with space for slot-in appliances. Located next to the kitchen and bathroom is the rear hall with back door providing direct access to the garden. The bathroom is fitted with a white three piece suite comprising wc, wash hand basin and bath.
A turned staircase extends to the upper floor with skylight providing good natural light. The main bedroom is a surprisingly spacious double bedroom quietly situated to the rear of the cottage with outlooks over the garden and hillside beyond. Built-in wardrobes to one wall provide good additional storage with ample space for free standing furniture. The second bedroom is a further good size double bedroom with dormer window to the front.
The rear garden is nicely sized and fully enclosed. Mainly laid to lawn with a timber summer house at the foot of the garden and with open farmland beyond. Gate to the side.
