3 Bed House - Detached
Guide Price £200,000
Castle Cottage is quietly nestled in the Old Town part of Ayton, as part of a row of terraced properties. The beautiful stonework, with contrasting coloured quoin stones and lintels, on the front elevation give the townhouse a real sense of character and identity, while the interior is inviting and warm, decorated in neutral tones with an obvious charm which continues over all three floors. The accommodation is spacious, making for a lovely, relaxed family home, with modern fixtures and fittings combined with various original features which have been thoughtfully retained. Improvements made by the current owners include most of the sash windows fittings being replaced with modern, yet traditionally styled, doubled glazed units. The property also benefits from gas central heating system, together with the wood burning stove in the sitting room, making for a snug and cosy space to unwind and relax. While the gorgeous terraced back garden also adds to the property’s overall appeal. Purchasers may also be interested to know that the current owners have operated Castle Cottage as a successful B&B and continue to do so, using the master bedroom, bathroom and landing area as an Airbnb style, self-contained guest suite.
Ayton is a small traditional Borders village which benefits from a good selection of local amenities, while the local primary school has a very good reputation, as does Eyemouth High School which is only a couple of miles away. The beautiful Baronial red sandstone Ayton Castle sits proudly in its well-tended grounds and is open to the public during the summer months, while the local pub and bowling club are perfect for socialising with the local community. The village has excellent access to the A1 which allows easy commuting to Edinburgh to the north and Newcastle to the south, while direct bus routes to Eyemouth, Duns and Berwick-upon-Tweed, with its mainline railway station, provide great public transportation links.
The accommodation comprises; hallway, sitting room, kitchen with dining area, back hallway, landing, master bedroom, second sizable bedroom with en-suite shower room and an office
ursery accessed through, family bathroom and spacious third double bedroom in the attic space.
The back door opens to a very useful utility space with gardener’s WC, while a pathway with steps to the side leads up to main garden ground. The gardens are very nicely presented and terraced over three levels; they enjoy excellent privacy and sun throughout most of the day with the top level enjoying some lovely roof top views towards the surrounding countryside. There is a parking space, defined directly to the front of the property, with additional parking available in a parking bay, just a short walk up the road.
