About the property

*** CLOSING DATE SET – TUESDAY 16TH AUGUST AT 12 NOON ***

Hilltop Cottage is a wonderfully charming stone-built property with potential for modernisation/development and has a large, orchard style back garden. A lovely village setting with wonderful surroundings and good connections to Edinburgh.

*** CLOSING DATE SET – TUESDAY 16TH AUGUST AT 12 NOON ***

Located towards the edge of this quaint and extremely established Berwickshire village, Hilltop Cottage is a beautifully traditional and charming detached property; originally thought to be two separate dwellings and with its white washed exterior and red pantile roof, the cottage really does grab your attention. Although one of the main selling points is not at all apparent from first impressions; the large orchard style garden at the rear is a super feature, wonderfully peaceful with little to be heard other than birdsong. For those seeking space and tranquillity Hilltop offers that in abundance whilst still benefitting from a pleasant village setting which has excellent links to Edinburgh, particularly with the new station at Reston only a few miles distant. The interior does now offer opportunities for upgrading and modernisation; a wonderful prospect for those seeking to create a fabulous forever family home in the heart of the Berwickshire landscape.

LOCATION

Auchencrow is a popular village within easy reach of the A1 and commutable from Edinburgh yet enjoying off the beaten track charm and a popular village pub/restaurant.

Although rarely used, the official entrance to the cottage is from the front with a canopied entrance door opening into a small but useful hallway with good storage.

This room is glazed on all sides with lovely outlooks over the private gardens and an external door with access from the rear parking area. With ample room for conservatory furniture and currently fitted with a range of base units and sink for use as a utility area but with obvious scope for upgrading or replacement if preferred. To the side of the lounge, the kitchen overlooks the village to the front; currently fitted with a range of wall and base units offering good storage whilst the adjoining dining room offers ample space for entertaining or family dining – also boasting dual aspect windows with an outlook over the gardens to the rear. A central hall from the dining room leads to the bedroom accommodation at the south end of the cottage; two pleasant double bedrooms plus the principal shower room.

EXTERNAL

The gardens are a real surprise; it’s rare to find a traditional cottage with such large and private grounds. Extending to the rear with sun throughout the day, the gardens are presented in a lovely orchard style with expansive areas of lawn, a variety of fruit trees and established boundaries. To the foot of the garden is a timber shed with store/potting area. Beyond the gardens is open farmland with views as far as the eye can see. A detached timber garage lies to the side with gated access at the rear of the cottage opening to a gravelled parking area.
