About the property
This attractive stone built detached cottage lies only a few miles from Coldstream and enjoys a truly idyllic semi-rural position with fabulous outlooks due south taking in the adjoining countryside with the Cheviots in the distance. Internally the property is beautifully presented with great attention to detail and tastefully designed décor throughout. The property has been upgraded and renovated by the current owners to an exacting standard and is now presented in true move in condition with accommodation of good proportions and a flexible layout.
Coldstream itself is well known as the gateway to Scotland and is set on the banks of the River Tweed with beautiful walks along the riverside and in the nearby Hirsel Country Estate. Local sports include an 18-hole golf course at the Hirsel, tennis courts, horse riding and fishing on the Tweed. It also provides easy access to large variety of walks within the Northumberland National Park and lovely unspoilt beaches on the Berwickshire coast. Coldstream town offers a good primary school and easy access to secondary schools, a variety of shops and is well placed for easy commuting to both Edinburgh and Newcastle via the mainline station at Berwick upon Tweed only 20 minutes away.
Ground Floor Accommodation
With windows to the front enjoying a southerly aspect in addition to a side window, the lounge is both a well-proportioned room and beautifully presented with great charm and character. The traditional nature of the property is enhanced by the cast iron log burning stove to one wall which is set within a timber surround with marble mantle, exposed ceiling beams and the stylishly tiled flooring which benefits from under floor heating. Extending towards the rear of the property is the stylishly presented kitchen which is fitted with an excellent range of modern wall and base units with granite effect worktops and tiled splashbacks. The kitchen enjoys aspects over the garden to the rear and provides space for everyday dining if required with a pleasant sun room/utility space off which accesses the garden. The third bedroom is conveniently located on the ground floor and is a well-proportioned double room again featuring ceiling beams and although currently used as a Home Office, this room provides the ideal opportunity for those that require a ground floor bedroom. Usefully, the bathroom is also located on the ground floor and is very well finished with partially tiled walls and a white suite comprising wash hand basin with vanity storage below, WC and panelled bath with tiled surround and shower over.
The bedrooms enjoy the magnificent outlooks to the South towards the Cheviots; both are well proportioned double rooms with good natural light and with one benefiting from useful built in storage
This timber building is located to the far corner of the garden and is currently used as a Studio which works perfectly thanks to the benefit of light and power but would also make for a delightful summer house if preferred with decked terrace to the front, ideal for summer dining.
