5 Bed House - Detached
Offers Around £280,000
Enjoying a lovely location directly opposite the parish church, Kirkhill is a substantial detached, renovated period property which is quietly nestled into a private and leafy position towards the edge of the village. Internally the accommodation extends over three floors and has been adapted in recent years with B&B in mind; the layout of the accommodation is perfectly suited for those seeking such a venture but would work equally as well for those seeking a well-proportioned and versatile family home, which has the further benefit of the local primary school and village amenities within walking distance. The partially walled garden to the front is south facing and provides a lovely area; having been re-landscaped in recent times, this area is well stocked with a variety of colour and interest throughout the year with plenty of room for summer dining and BBQs whilst the area to the rear of the property hosts a large detached garage and private driveway.
Local shopping, primary and nursery schooling is available at Chirnside with the main shops and the east coast rail connection some 12 miles away at Berwick upon Tweed. The county town of Duns is five miles west with its recently built state of the art secondary school whilst Edinburgh is approx 50 miles and one hour by car via the A1. The area is famous for country pursuits with fishing on the nearby Whiteadder Water and the famous River Tweed and provides ideal walking and horse country in the Cheviot and Lammermuir hills.

Access from the rear drive via a stable door opens directly into a useful hall with original tessellated mosaic flooring. This in turns opens into the utility room with good built in storage and space for fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble drier. A cloakroom lies off with WC and wash hand basin. The breakfasting kitchen is very well appointed and presented in traditional style featuring exposed ceiling beams and terracotta tiled flooring. The modern kitchen units work well with the traditional features and boast a Belfast style sink, tiled splash backs in addition to well considered lighting solutions including under unit lights. Space allows for a slot in range style cooker, dishwasher and fridge. The window to the front ensures good natural light and usefully the room provides plenty of space for every day dining. With two large south facing windows and an outlook over the garden, the lounge is a particularly large room yet still retains a cosy cottage feel thanks to the large recessed multi fuel stove which is set into a feature wall. From here a door gives access to the staircase extending to the first floor whilst a further door towards the rear leads to the light and airy dining room. This is an ideal space for formal or guest dining and enjoys views towards the church thanks to the double aspect windows. Again this is a well-proportioned room and could provide the option of a downstairs double bedroom if required.
Three of the five double bedrooms are located at first floor level and all benefit from windows to the front and a sunny southerly aspect. The master bedroom and bedroom two, the largest of the bedrooms, also benefit from well-appointed en-suite shower rooms. Bedroom three boasts newly installed floor to ceiling shelved storage making this room equally well placed for use as a library or study if preferred in addition to the benefit of being positioned next door to the main family bathroom which is tiled to dado height and benefits from a white five piece suite complete with bath, separate corner shower cubicle, WC sink, bidet in addition to an illuminated mirror and long ladder style radiator. Usefully the first floor also provides a lovely study/computer area to the foot of the stairs which extends to the top floor. This is an ideal work environment with plenty of room for a computer desk and with the benefit of a front facing window.
The accommodation at this level is versatile and could provide either another two double bedrooms or perhaps a peaceful sitting room and/or teenage den. Central to both rooms is the shower room which again is fitted with a modern white three piece suite whilst the landing boasts an excellent, newly installed storage unit.
