About the property
Nestled into a quiet edge of village position opposite the parish church; ‘Kirkhill’ is a substantial detached town house which offers flexible and adaptable accommodation, ideal as a main home but also with obvious potential for use as a Bed and Breakfast. The traditional accommodation extends over three floors, with all rooms being of good proportions and presented throughout in a modern tasteful style, which compliments the character of the property perfectly. Externally there is a partially walled, easy to maintain, south facing garden which comprises a small lawn and decked terrace, ideal for summer BBQ’s whilst to the rear of the property is a private drive with space for several cars and a detached single garage.
Local shopping, primary and nursery schooling is available at Chirnside with the main shops and the east coast rail connection some 12 miles away at Berwick upon Tweed. The county town of Duns is five miles west with its recently built state of the art secondary school while Edinburgh is approximately 50 miles and one hour by car via the A1. The area is famous for country pursuits with fishing on the nearby Whiteadder Water and the famous River Tweed and provides ideal walking and horse country in the Cheviot and Lammermuir hills.

Ground Floor Accommodation
From the driveway to the rear, a ‘stable’ door opens into a welcoming entrance hall which allows access to both the kitchen and sitting room. A useful facility is provided by the utility area and ground floor cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin. The breakfasting kitchen is traditional in style with beamed ceiling and terracotta tiled floor; these traditional features work well with the modern fitted kitchen units which offer ample worktop space and benefit from tiled splash backs. Appliances include a Belfast sink, slot in range cooker with chimney hood above and space for a slot in dishwasher. The room benefits from a south facing window and provides space for everyday dining. Overlooking the garden to the front, the sitting room is a particularly large room, flooded with natural light thanks to the double windows. Whilst the room offers plenty of space for a range of free standing furniture, the recessed log burning stove and feature wall ensure a cosy, country feel. An inner hallway connects the sitting room to the dining room which benefits from triple aspect windows and provides the ideal space for formal dining; however this room could lend itself to alternative uses depending on requirements.

At either ends of the landing are the en-suite bedrooms; both are lovely sized rooms benefitting from plenty of natural light thanks to the south facing windows.

The third bedroom, another good double room is freshly presented and benefits from an aspect over the garden to the front. The family bathroom at this level is tiled to dado height and benefits from a four piece suite incorporating a WC, pedestal sink, bath and separate corner shower.
