About the property
This unique and exclusive steading conversion which was completed in 2010 provides a fabulous country dwelling, perfectly suited as a family home with plenty of space on offer both inside and out. As you would expect from such a property, the attractive stone building has plenty of charm and original character which marries perfectly with the modern interior design and styling, to offer the best of both. Boudrach provides a perfect opportunity for those seeking a semi-rural family friendly environment but equally, for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life to more scenic and relaxed surroundings this property is bound to appeal.
The gardens to the rear are fully enclosed and offer plenty of space. There are lots of opportunities for the gardening enthusiast with ample room for vegetable plots etc. and for those looking to embark on the ‘good life’ the current owners keep chickens which can be included in the sale! Consideration has been applied to certain environmental factors with solar panels having been installed on the south facing elevation whilst there is also an electric car charging point on the drive at the front.
Cothill consists of a handful of individually designed properties which together form a small hamlet and a close knit community. The nearby village of Gavinton is set against the backdrop of the Lammermuir Hills and lies just a few miles from the market town of Duns where both primary and secondary schooling is available. Duns also has good recreational facilities including a swimming pool, tennis courts, 18 hole golf course, library, various speciality shops and walks and nature reserve within the grounds of Duns Castle and is home to the classical Edwardian Mansion at Manderston. For those that commute Edinburgh is under an hour’s drive from Cothill whilst there are also train services from Tweedbank and Berwick Upon Tweed which are both around half an hour’s drive.
From Duns travelling on the A6105 Greenlaw road continue for approximately 2 miles before turning left into the village of Gavinton. Upon entering the village take the first turn on the right (opposite the church), continue past Ladyflat farm before turning right signposted ‘Cothill’

Off the lounge the rear hall is currently utilised as a home office which works perfectly and benefits from access directly from the drive at the front as well as a glazed door at the rear ensuring a lovely connection with the gardens. An important factor for many modern families is a sociable live-in kitchen space which Boudrach certainly offers; this room ensures enough space for every day family dining in addition to sofas or such life if required. Again a door leads directly to the gardens whilst the kitchen area is fitted with an excellent range of shaker style units with block wood work- surfaces.

The master bedroom is a particularly restful room with windows to the south side overlooking the gardens in addition to a large Velux window to the front.

Both bedrooms two and three are also generous double rooms, again with lovely outlooks over the gardens at the rear. The family shower room is freshly presented and fitted with a modern white suite.
The gardens are extremely private and sheltered, bordered on the south side by open farmland with the views beyond taking in the Cheviots in the distance. A large decked terrace extends off the lounge and provides a lovely sociable space whilst the paved patio off the kitchen is ideal for alfresco dining. The majority of the garden is neatly laid to lawn with established beds and borders. To the foot of the garden is the chicken run and coup which can be included in the sale.
