Guide Price £375,000
Innescote enjoys an excellent elevated location on the edge of the ever-popular village of Roxburgh, just a few miles from the bustling market town of Kelso. This spacious family home enjoys a lovey rural village setting in one of the most prime and sought-after areas in the Scottish Borders.
A beautiful detached traditional sandstone build boasting five bedrooms and generous garden grounds which benefit further from its south facing aspect. A full width conservatory provides an excellent viewpoint over the landscaped rear garden leading down to the Teviot River and beautiful rolling hillside beyond.
Having lovingly retained some of its original features including attractive working window shutters, ceiling coving and beautiful solid wood doors, this is a great example of a traditional property, ready to move in but with ample scope to add your own stamp if desired.
The conservatory is full width and maximises the beautiful views over the well stocked garden grounds down to the Teviot and to the far reaching countryside beyond. Double doors in the centre of the conservatory open from the garden into the wonderfully inviting space, providing multiple options for relaxing, dining and entertaining. The original front door provides access to the hallway, while glazed double doors open into a separate reception space which could be utilised as a family snug or playroom.
Natural light floods from the conservatory into the main hallway, making for a large and bright central space to access the ground floor accommodation, with a gorgeous, checker-board tiled floor, and spacious under stair cupboard.
The front facing lounge/sitting room with large attractive bay window providing a plethora of natural light. The warmth from the wood burning stove, set in its own hearth, mantle and surround makes this an ideal room to relax and enjoy.
The kitchen/breakfasting room is generously sized to accommodate a table and chairs, set with an array of floor and wall mounted units, and a practical pantry cupboard, all providing ample storage. While a wonderful oil fuelled Aga range together with a standard, four-ring electric cooker, add to the charm and practicality of this family kitchen.
From the kitchen, the back hallway has additional pantry storage and also provides access to the utility room which has the old-style ceiling pulley and a wide sink unit under a double width window, together with the oil-fired central heating boiler.
To the other side of the wooden door in the back hallway, which is used as the main entrance, is a very practical shower room, with a radial shower enclosure, with a close-coupled WC, vanity sink unit, heated towel rail and tiled surrounds.
A double bedroom can also be found on the ground floor. This room has been used as a formal dining room, making it a great space for entertaining but can also suit those who prefer a bedroom on the ground level. A versatile room with a choice of uses.
The sweeping staircase with a beautiful bespoke, hand crafted balustrade leads up to the bright, first floor landing where you will find four further bedrooms and the family bathroom. The generous master bedroom boasts its own private dressing room with fitted wardrobes. Both the bedroom and dressing room, together with another spacious double bedroom, look out to the south-facing garden and enjoy superb rolling views of the countryside beyond. While the two further double bedrooms are light and welcoming, both with under window shelving.
The family bathroom has an over-bath shower and vanity sink unit, with tiled surrounds and traditional styled taps, together with a close-coupled WC, heated towel rail and electrical shaving point.
Externally, to the side is the large driveway with ample parking for several cars, large log store and separate coal shed. You will also find a marvellous stone-built outbuilding fitted with power, with also the outline provision to add running water, if desired. Natural light pours in from the addition of three roof Velux windows, making for an ideal building for an art or sound studio, workshop or crafts room. Also perfect as a home office or business premises, detached from the main property.
The private garden grounds to the rear and side have been lovingly thought out. A sheltered, gravel patio area can be found to the side, sizeable for garden furniture and outdoor cooking. The rear is mainly laid to lawn with a well-stocked and established collection of flowers, shrubs and hedgerow. South facing too, making this a wonderful space for the keen gardener or the novice beginner. An enchanting garden to enjoy with fabulous views of the surrounding rolling countryside.
