5 Bed House - Detached
Offers Over £525,000
A rare find, this striking traditional former manse with a contemporary edge is truly a family home to fall in love with; set on a generous plot in the popular village of Eccles, village life comes with easy access to modern requirement and amenities, being set just a short drive from the vibrant town of Kelso and the Border at Coldstream.
The detached sandstone home has been elegantly upgraded by the current owners to blend the beauty of the original features synonymous of the period, with on trend fittings, flourishes and styling – while still offering outstanding scope to adapt or even extend to a purchaser’s own personal requirements and tastes. An obvious choice for those in search of all the benefits of a countryside lifestyle, with endless rolling borderland quite literally on the doorstep, Kirklee also provides choice for those with work or extended family commitments, with a separate annexe accommodation ideal for a variety of uses.
With a generous drive extending to the private gardens, enclosed with a sheltering boundary of mature hedging and trees, a warm welcome awaits with the reception vestibule, also lending itself as a charming sunroom, boasting full view of the garden, fitted with traditional tiling and leading on to the main hall. With three main reception rooms on the ground floor, including a comfortable drawing room and bright dining room, each with feature fireplaces and the original stripped wooden flooring, a generous family kitchen, and separate study and utility area sitting quietly to the rear of the property. The kitchen is a fantastic use of space, with an upgraded farmhouse feel incorporating the character of the property with the Rayburn, exposed beams and floor tiles, blending with a modern open plan aspect with the extended kitchen area, patio doors, stainless steel finishes and fresh white-wash walls – all highly successful and a real must have for country lifestyle. Adjoining the kitchen, a rear hall extends onto a shower room and links to the annexe, with a utility area and connecting door to the garden and drive. The annexe provides endless opportunities for a buyer in search of a separate, yet connected, work, study, relaxation or surplus accommodation space, and is currently used as a further comfortable bedroom with ensuite.
Four further bedrooms within the main accommodation are positioned on the first floor, each generously proportioned with pleasant views over the gardens below and finished in the continuous scandi style décor – serviced by a family bathroom and further cloakroom w/c.
This charming fusion of country meets contemporary is complemented externally, where in addition to the generous lawns and patio, a wood fired hot tub is nestled in a private spot of the grounds providing fun and relaxation for family and friends.
