About the property

Aspen House is a superior and luxurious detached villa which occupies a sizeable private plot within this popular village positioned on the bank of the River Tweed. Offering accommodation of the highest standards and top quality fixtures and fittings not to mention an extremely flexible and adaptable internal layout.

This luxurious detached villa boasts a highly attractive ‘Yorkshire’ stone exterior which creates a real sense of intrigue and charm. This is a theme that is continued throughout the property; with the unique design and specification centred around top quality fixtures and fittings with lots of character combined with many modern day comforts such as under floor heating throughout the ground floor. The presentation is superb; extremely tasteful and stylish with a neutral colour palette and many notable features, not least the bespoke handcrafted farmhouse style kitchen.

The layout has been extremely well considered and offers a great degree of flexibility with the option of a downstairs en-suite bedroom if required or an upper floor sitting room with Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens. The versatility lends itself to the ever changing demands of modern family life but could equally offer opportunities for B&B or perhaps to cater for extended family/multi generation living. Undoubtedly the hub of the home is the fabulous open plan family room/dining room/kitchen which offers the sociable space many buyers are searching for; with direct connections to the private gardens and more than enough space for entertaining or family gatherings
