2 Bed Cottage - Semi Detached
Offers Over £220,000
In a private countryside setting with excellent links to further towns and Edinburgh and within the catchment for Earlston High School, this immaculate property is ideal for extension with a large garden to the side and rear offering exciting potential as a forever family home.
Quietly positioned just 1 mile south of the popular village of Lauder, St Leonards is a picturesque and peaceful location offering a much coveted countryside lifestyle property - with a range of excellent amenities close to hand in the village, the property benefits swift transport links within easy commuter distance of Edinburgh via the A68 in under an hour.
The stone-built semi-detached cottage is set in a generous plot, with a large garden providing excellent scope to extend with the relevant permissions – previous outline planning has been granted, though has now lapsed. Having undergone complete renovation by the current owners, the accommodation is presented in fresh tones with quality finishings, and is immaculately maintained as is reflected in the Home Report.
With a neat gravelled frontage framed with colourful pots and plants, 2 St Leonards sits back from the farm road with private parking to the front, and a side access to the garden ideal for extension to the property or the erection of a garage. The main door opens to a welcoming and spacious reception hall, with an adjoining door to the bright lounge; a well-appointed space with double window to the front incorporating a lovely window seat and a feature open fire. The connecting dining kitchen sits to the rear with a garden view and is fully fitted with modern kitchen units and appliances, with plenty of space for dining furnishings and external door to the garden. The bathroom opens from the main hallway and is beautifully styled with an elegant rolltop slipper bath and complementing washhand basin and w/c, with stylish tiling, a modesty glazed window and a shower over the bath.
Upstairs, a carpeted stair and landing extends to the two bedrooms; both boasting exceptional proportions with elegant décor, original cottage doors and a charming feature fireplace in bedroom one.
The garden makes this immaculate cottage ever more appealing; currently a blank canvas, the main section of the garden to the side and rear of the property is fully enclosed with timber fencing and mature hedging, with a large section of lawn, gravelled patio, garden shed and a lovely woodland edge. The potential to landscape further or indeed extend the existing accommodation is bound to appeal to those buyers looking for a forever home in the central borders.
St Leonards is positioned some 1 mile south of Lauder, opening from the A68 at the sign post for the hamlet of Boon – and is an area surrounded by beautiful Borders landscape synonymous with country life. There is a public and school bus stop service at the road end.
Lauder is a charming village and a firm favourite with families and retirees alike; benefitting from an excellent positon for commuters via the A68, and within the catchment for the renowned Earlston High School - one of the best performing secondary’s in Scotland.
