Ground Floor Accommodation
An entrance porch with decorative stained glass internal door gives way to the entrance hall featuring the staircase to the upper floor. To the front of the hallway a large walk in store room currently provides useful storage but could be alternatively utilised as a private study area if preferred. Both public rooms extend from the front to the rear of the cottage, thus benefiting from dual aspect windows. The well proportioned lounge features an imposing decorative fireplace. To the far side of the hall, the dining room, again generous in proportioned benefits from a cast iron log burning stove which is set into a brick fireplace. Conveniently located off the dining room is the breakfasting kitchen which provides space for a small table and chairs, ideal for everyday dining and is fitted with a range of modern units with space for slot in appliances. A further useful porch extends off the kitchen to the rear whilst a small inner hallway extends towards the entrance door off the street with useful shower room off the hall.
The carpeted staircase leads to a half landing with further stairs then extending both to a front and rear landing. The spindles banisters make for a lovely feature whilst the window on the front landing ensures plenty of natural light. Both bedrooms off the front landing are pleasant double rooms with one of the rooms enjoying a dramatic outlook directly over St Abbs Harbour. The remaining two bedrooms which are located to the rear overlook the gardens and both feature original fireplaces. One benefits from a built in cupboard and also has access to the remaining attic space which is currently used as storage but provides obvious scope for further extension if desired (subject to permissions). The bathroom is centrally positioned and fitted with a coloured three piece suite with deep sill window to the rear.
A lovely sheltered area of garden lies to the rear, partially walled and enjoying excellent privacy. The garden is a lovely peaceful haven which enjoys sun well into the evening with the sound of the crashing waves audible in the distance.
A detached garage lies to the foot of the garden.
