Offers Over £180,000
A Beautifully Presented Semi Detached Stone Built Cottage Enjoying A Enviable Rural Position, Yet Within Only A Few Miles Of Duns. Nestled Into Fabulous Countryside and Benefitting From Large Landscaped Gardens As Well As A Garage And Private Drive
Located only a few miles from Duns, 2 Burnhouses offers the best of both worlds; nestled into the idyllic Berwickshire countryside and bordered by open farmland with plenty of peace and tranquillity , yet lying close to Duns with all local amenities including primary and secondary schooling within easy reach. Having been beautifully upgraded and maintained by the current owners this semi-detached stone built cottage offers light, airy and tastefully presented accommodation which, as you would expect from an early 20th century property, also offers generous proportions throughout. The outside space has been equally well considered; fully landscaped to great effect and extending to the side, front and rear of the cottage, providing plenty of space and a great environment for family and entertaining.
Duns has good educational and recreational facilities including primary and secondary schools, 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. Edinburgh is 45 miles away with the main East Coast rail line at Berwick upon Tweed some 15 miles distant.
Travelling from Duns on the A6112 ‘Grantshouse’ road, continue for approximately 1 mile before turning left on to the B6365 ‘Cranshaws’ road. Continue on this road for approximately three miles with 2 Burnhouse Cottages located to the right hand side, a short distance beyond (and on the opposite side from) the farm entrance.

The entrance porch offers a warm welcome as well as providing a practical space for coat hanging/boot storage etc. A glazed internal door then opens into the very inviting hallway with carpeted staircase and window over extending to the upper floor. With triple front facing windows and lots of natural light, the lounge is a well-proportioned, traditional room with a lovely focal point provided by the log burning stove which is set onto tiled hearth and with brick surround. The hallway extends towards the rear of the cottage with window overlooking the rear garden and opens into the very stylish kitchen. Having been tastefully finished with a great range of shaker style units with integrated appliances, this fresh, modern kitchen also has space for evening day dining and a part glazed rear door that overlooks and connects directly to the gardens. To the front of the cottage, off the hallway is the well appointed bathroom; fitted with a three piece suite complete with shower over the bath, partially tiled walls and two large windows.
