2 Bed Cottage
Guide Price £240,000
This beautifully presented farm cottage is located between Ayton and Burnmouth, nestled in the gorgeous Berwickshire countryside. The property has been thoroughly modernised in the last couple of years, making it bright, warm and inviting, with well-proportioned rooms and a perfect blend of old and new. With two large bedroom suites at either end of the cottage, together with a substantial attic room, the property has the potential to accommodate a wide range of buyers, from couples and smaller families who desire an easy to-get-to countryside cottage, through to buy-to-let investors looking for a truly turnkey opportunity to offer as holiday accommodation.
Burnmouth is the first settlement north of the Border on the rugged east coast with its steep cliffs, craggy cove and quaint little fishing harbour. To the north is Ayton, which 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. 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 seaside resort of Eyemouth, three miles north, with its natural harbour and sandy beach provides a variety of shopping and educational facilities with the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed six miles south, providing a wider range of facilities. Edinburgh is within easy commuting distance with the recently upgraded A1 nearby and the main railway station at Berwick upon Tweed enabling easy access to Edinburgh or Newcastle in less than one hour.
The front door opens to a modest side entrance hallway, which leads on to the dining area and stairs that rise up to the attic room. Cream coloured timber wall cladding and painted beams, together with dark tiled floor makes the room warm and inviting, while the window to the side bathes the space in great natural light. The kitchen, to the side of the dining area, has a window to the far side and is well proportioned with a ‘U’ shaped configuration of cabinets, with Belfast style sink, integrated slimline dishwasher, four ring electric hob and split-level oven. The lounge has a very comfortable and bright feel, with a wood burning stove sitting proudly in the simple fireplace. The main bedroom suite, which is separated from the lounge by a small lobby with a convenient exterior door to the garden, is spacious and light with the main window looking out to the garden and a second, smaller window to the rear side. Its en-suite shower room is sumptuous, with a large glass shower enclosure sitting beautifully in the middle of the room, with a vanity sink to one side and the WC to the side closest to the opaque glazed window. The second bedroom suite is located at the other end of the cottage. This room is a similar size to the main bedroom and has a spacious en-suite WC which, if desired, has the plumbing in place to accommodate either a bath or shower cubicle. The first floor attic room currently provides very useful storage but could equally be utilised as a home office, or even as a space for children to escape and make their own play area. There is also a handy partially floored attic space beyond the main attic room.
Entrance Hallway, Kitchen with Dining Area, Lounge, Lobby, Master Bedroom with En-suite Shower Room, further Double Bedroom with En-suite WC and Attic Room.
The cottage is wrapped on three sides with a practical sized garden, which is enclosed with a combination of fencing and an attractive stone wall which separates the space from the field to the front. A timber gate opens to a gravel patio area with a flower bed border in the corner, which a gravel pathway follows around to the front side of the cottage. The front and far side is a laid to lawn, while a large timber gate at the far side opens to allow for off-road parking.
