Ideally suited for downsizers or for purchasers looking for a stress-free second home, the Cottage is a truly wonderful prospect.
Minto, near Denholm, is set in glorious countryside and nestles below the Minto Hills with some of the best views in the Borders.

The front door opens to a modest sized hallway, with a handy coat and boot cupboard to the side. The living area is deliberately impressive with an elevated ceiling over the lounge and dining area and glazed patio doors opening out to the private landscaped garden. The newly installed contemporary kitchen is positively tactile, laid out with a ‘U’ shape configuration of wall and floor units with mix of grey and white gloss doors and dark grey countertops. Together with the electric hob and split-level oven, there is also an integrated microwave, tall fridge freezer, washing machine and full-size dishwasher. The window to the side of the dark grey composite sink, also looks outover the private courtyard garden, letting more natural light in to flood the space. To the side of the kitchen area a door opens through to the main hallway that provides access to both, bright double bedrooms that sit either side of the impressive bathroom, with a free-standing rolltop bath and separate shower enclosure. The hallway leads through to a back vestibule that opens to the opposite side of the property, giving further access to the garden.
From the living room, patio doors open to the sheltered courtyard garden which runs the length of the property, divided into two main areas, with a picket fence, while taller planting on the back boundary, helps soften the space. A decorative stone feature patio area provides a tranquil space for outdoor seating and alfresco dining. The garden has been thoughtfully connected with a gravel pathway, together with a mix of a rounded pebble rockery, sculpted seating areas and a wonderful selection of wildlife friendly, herbaceous perennial and evergreen plantings.
