4 Bed Cottage - Detached
Offers Over £450,000
A charming family home offering an enviable countryside position, 2 Carfrae Farm Cottages enjoys the best of both a scenic setting and easy access to amenities, catering ably for modern buyers and providing a serene slice of Scottish living. The extended stone built cottage is exceptionally adaptable; hosting a choice of public space, four bedrooms and a super wrap around garden.
With a garden frontage and parking bay, the main entrance is gently elevated, allowing pleasant outlooks over the neighbouring fields. The main entrance opens to the original cottage, with a wonderful lounge set to the front with feature window giving a dual aspect, and an open fire. The family dining kitchen sits quietly to the rear, and is a super social space with an open plan feel and sliding doors directly to the garden. The extension then opens off to a hallway; providing access to a useful utility room, a family bathroom and a bright garden room. A spiral stair from the garden room opens to a fantastic master suite, with a wonderful aspect, generous proportions to include a dressing area, and potential to create a study area or ensuite on this level.
From the front hall, two comfortable ground floor bedrooms and a family shower room lead off to the opposite side, with a further study and guest room to the far end. A fitted stair then extends to the first floor, currently utilised as a large hobby and storage space, but also lending itself as a further double bedroom.
The outdoor space is a fantastic complement to the accommodation; the generous wrap around plot secures absolute privacy, backing onto grazing land to the rear and with excellent potential for further cultivation or landscaping. A parking bay to the side allows for off street parking, again with potential for a carport. Useful stone built outhouses to the rear of the garden are ideal as workshop space and storage, with a timber summerhouse adjacent.
The property sits on a quiet country road just 4 miles from Lauder and 1 mile from Oxton, surrounded by beautiful Borders landscape. The property benefits from an excellent position for commuters via the A68, under a mile from the property itself, and is within catchment for the renowned Earlston High School – recently referenced in Tatler Magazine as one of the best performing secondary schools in Scotland.
Lauder itself is an area surrounded by beautiful Borders landscape, with local views across the stunning Thirlestane Castle, towards rolling fields and countryside. The village of Lauder has a host of excellent amenities; a well-regarded primary school and nursery, to independent retailers including fruit and vegetable shop, butchers, baker, restaurants and cafes, to excellent sporting facilities including golf course, tennis club and a strong horse riding community.
