A superb B listed converted church complete with large open plan living accommodation and four double bedrooms. Endearing original features such as the arched church windows, stained glass and clock tower. Excellent opportunities for home working, multi generational living or creating an income stream form the adjoining self contained annex.
This superb converted B listed church offers an exceptional way of life with options to cater for extended family or to generate an income from the adjoining self contained annex. Having been sympathetically converted, the property boasts an impressive interior with large airy spaces, some great original features - not least the clock tower, as well as more modern design influences, particularly within the kitchen and bathrooms - yet it still manages to retain a very homely and cosy ambience throughout. All of this is combined with the various opportunities provided by the adjoining annex- connected internally to the main house yet also with its own private access from the gardens; this space is currently utilised as a dedicated home working environment but it provides obvious scope to cater for extended family/ multi-generational living or as a holiday let venture with great potential to create a good income stream.
The space and flexibility internally is matched by that on offer externally; the gardens at the rear are extremely private, enjoy good sun throughout the day and provide opportunities for further landscaping if desired. The detached timber workshop is a great space with the added benefit of a decked terrace to the front, ideal for summer dining and entertaining.
Gordon village has a general store, church and pub together with an excellent small primary school with nursery which falls within the catchment area of the renowned recently completed Earlston High School. The nearby towns of Earlston and Kelso offer a good range of shops and services with Edinburgh a very commutable 45 minutes’ drive away or around via the Borders Railway with a station at nearby Tweedbank. .

The main reception area provides a truly impressive first impression; this vast open plan space features the mezzanine galleried landing above and the original arched church windows to the front. This area is flooded with natural light and offers a very sociable living space with ample room for a large dining table – perfect for entertaining and social gatherings whilst the lounge area presents the perfect space for family gatherings with lots of room for sofas and such like. Extending to the rear and with outlooks over the gardens, the family dining kitchen is very well appointed with a great range of stylish, modern units complete with tiled splash backs and ample worktop space. An oil fired range operates the central heating and provides the option for cooking, although there is also an integral ‘every day oven and hob’. The kitchen is ideal for every day dining with space in front of the rear window for a table and chairs in addition to the built in window seat. The adjoining utility room presents a very useful facility and allows access to the gardens as well as benefitting from the adjoining cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin.
The carpeted stairs leads to the fabulous galleried mezzanine landing with outlooks over the lounge/dining/family room below. The velux windows in addition to the original arched windows below both flood this space with natural light. Located to one end of the landing, the master bedroom is a large double room with extensive built in storage, rear velux windows and a freshly presented en-suite shower room. Bedrooms two, three and four are all nicely proportioned double rooms, one with built in wardrobes and are all served by the luxurious family bathroom – having been refitted in contemporary style, the room benefits from fully tiled walls and complimentary tiled flooring. The white three piece suite comprises WC, wash hand basin which is set into a vanity unit with storage below and mirror above plus the sunken bath which is set onto a raised plinth. A very quaint room with original stained glass window presents an ideal space as a home office and also features a door leading to the turned staircase which gives access to the clock tower.
The annex has an internal connecting door of the lounge/dining/family room whist also benefitting from external access via the rear gardens – as such this annex could easily be self-contained if preferred. The lounge is a lovely cosy room complete with log burning stove and original arched window to the front. Extending off the lounge to the rear is a large double bedroom with external door to the garden. Both the kitchen and shower rooms are well appointed – the kitchen with a good range of wooden units with space for slot in appliances and the shower room with large shower cubicle, WC and pedestal sink. The annex has more recently been utilised as a dedicated home working environment which works perfectly but it also offers great scope to be run as a self-contained holiday let or perhaps to cater for extended family.
The gardens at the rear enjoy great privacy and are laid with a central area of lawn with a gravelled seating area and a paved patio which extends along the rear of the building. There is currently a greenhouse and vegetable plots to the side. The large timber workshop/shed is a great space complete with light and power; currently utilised as storage it could provide a great studio or workspace if desired with the further benefit of the large decked terrace with canopy over.
