About the property
Enjoying an idyllic setting on the edge of Coldingham Moor a few miles from the popular coastal village; ‘Westloch Cottage’ is a luxurious and architecturally designed detached property which offers a perfect coastal getaway. The property which was completed in 2008 offers well considered and thoughtfully planned accommodation ideally suited to modern day family living thanks to the open plan layout on the ground floor.
In recent years the property has been used as a successful holiday let and as such would present an ideal opportunity for those seeking a similar venture with the business already established and operating successfully. Alternatively for those seeking a sizeable family home in a rural yet coastal location which is also within commuting distance of Edinburgh, ‘Westloch Cottage’ would be perfectly suited.
Occupying grounds of approximately 1/3 of an acre the property benefits from a woodland backdrop with landscaped gardens enjoying good privacy with a gravelled drive and detached double garage to the front.
Coldingham lies on the famed Berwickshire coast and has narrow winding streets and charm reminiscent of St Ives in Cornwall. The village has its own primary school with further private and secondary education available nearby. Local amenities include a bistro, hotels, pub restaurants, garage and shops. There is a regular bus service to Eyemouth and Berwick-upon-Tweed and Edinburgh is within easy commuting distance with the recently upgraded A1 and the main rail station at Berwick.
From School Road in the centre of Coldingham, turn into West Loch road next to the school and continue for approximately two miles over Coldingham Moor. Westloch Cottage is situated immediately beyond the turning into Coldingham Loch.
