5 Bed Equestrian
Offers Over £950,000
A rural haven, coastal serenity meets equestrian bliss in this beautifully stylish property; contemporary and immaculately finished both inside and out, the flexible accommodation hosts family, friends, workspace and leisure with ease – with excellent outdoor space, suitable for many purposes, extending to some 17 acres and stunning sea views.
One of Coldingham’s most standout properties, Whinneyburn Farm bucks the trend with a contemporary farmhouse offering equestrian facilities and sea views, giving a nod to tradition but quintessentially 21st Century and ideally suiting the modern buyer.
The location and sea views are undoubtedly key features, closely followed by the property’s attention to bespoke detailing and, above all else, exceptionally high specification and quality finish.
Originally a bungalow built in 1998, following its purchase in 2006 by the present owner the property was extended both internally and externally with the addition of a stable complex and ménage, with the radical transformation resulting in a modern five-bedroomed farmhouse set in 17 acres - predominantly paddocks with outbuildings and facilities for up to seven horses to live in similar style and comfort, plus large dog-proof gardens around the house.
While farmhouses tend towards a rustic aesthetic, Whinneyburn’s pristine model-like façade, are all the more striking. Featuring brilliant-white harled walls beneath a red-tiled roof, the house is complemented by an immaculate front garden with neatly manicured lawns punctuated by similarly brilliant-white, stone-chipped beds and pathways.
Berwickshire’s North Sea coastline is both dramatic and diverse, ranging from craggy cliffs and rocky outcrops to quaint working harbours and bays with beautiful sandy beaches; a safe haven for swimming, rich in aquatic life, and ideal for surfing, diving and other water sports. In particular, Coldingham Bay is an area of outstanding natural beauty, a picture-perfect location centred around an historic village of the same name with roots going back to the 11th Century and links to a Benedictine priory.
The village has its own primary school with further private and secondary education available nearby. Local amenities include a primary school, village shop, pub restaurants, garage and stores. There is a regular bus service to Eyemouth and Berwick-upon-Tweed and Edinburgh is within easy commuting distance with the recently upgraded A1 and the main rail East Coast station at Berwick providing direct line to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London.
Hosting - entrance vestibule, hallway, lounge, sitting room, kitchen, dining room, utility room, boot room, shower room and four double bedrooms on the ground floor. Master suite on the first floor comprising king size bedroom, built in wardrobes and dressing area, ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower.
Dominating the property are views to die for, hence the three public rooms are configured to take maximum advantage: the bay-windowed dining room has glazed double doors to the garden and southern views over the paddocks to the sea and Holy Isle on the horizon; the sitting room and adjoining bay-windowed lounge (with a wood-burning set into a slate and oak fireplace) similarly overlook paddocks and the sea beyond. Linking the dining room and sitting room is a modern take on a farmhouse kitchen, fully fitted with units hand-crafted in solid light oak pared with granite work surfaces, cream-coloured Aga, integrated appliances and slate flooring – the adjoining bespoke utility displays the same adherence to quality and natural materials. There is also a useful boot room with external access.
Completing the ground floor accommodation, an inner hallway leads to a shower room with walk-in double-size shower, and four bedrooms – all of which have built-in storage. A staircase continues up to an open-plan landing area off which is a luxurious master suite.
Whinneyburn’s equestrian facilities are of a similarly high standard and include a stable block with seven bays, tack room and outside sore. There is also a large agricultural shed with a further open store, and an enclosed/fenced open-air ménage.
A well-designed, detached cabin/summerhouse, with double doors opens from a charming covered porch &seating area into a spacious room that could suit many purposes - from a garden office to a gym, craft studio, games room and more.
