3 Bed Bungalow
Asking Price £240,000
Woodlands View is an attractive, three-bedroom bungalow, located in a quiet cul-de-sac within the popular and well-established Gillsland development. Set in a slightly elevated, southwest facing position, the well-proportioned accommodation has great cupboard space, with features that include gas central heating and double glazed windows throughout. Outside, the adjacent driveway provides ample off-street parking, complimenting the large detached garage at the rear of the house. Garden space includes a sizeable lawn to the front, which slopes down to the roadside, while the back garden offers a secluded space to relax and entertain. Built in the mid 1980’s the property could benefit from some general upgrading and modernisation, allowing the new owners to implement their own taste and requirements. If desired and subject to local authority permission, there is also the potential for extending the property, whilst retaining a generous garden area. Woodlands View is likely to appeal to downsizers and young families looking for a bungalow within easy reach of local amenities.
Eyemouth is steeped in the traditions of the sea with the central harbour and beach proving a popular tourist attraction, while the local area is also admired by sub-aqua divers and walkers. Local facilities, all within easy walking distance from Gillsland, include primary and modern secondary schools, health centre, 18-hole golf course, swimming pool and sports centre. Eyemouth is ideally situated for exploring the Berwickshire coastline including the nearby St Abb’s Head Nature Reserve, while the surrounding countryside is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty with rolling hills and plentiful farmland. The A1 trunk road is within 2 miles of the town giving quick and easy access to Edinburgh and Newcastle, while the historic town of Berwick upon Tweed lies some nine miles to the south providing a wide range of supermarkets, larger shops, sporting and entertainment facilities.
The porch covered front door, with an opaque glazed to the side, opens to a generous, ‘L’-shaped hallway, which has good cupboard space and provides access to the living accommodation. The spacious lounge has sliding patio doors which open to a front terrace, with an additional window to the side, making it a lovely, bright place to relax. The kitchen with dining area, to the rear side of the house, has a space in front of patio doors for an ample sized dining table, while the utility room is plumbed for a washing machine and has a door opening to the back garden. Two of the three bedrooms have built-in wardrobe, and the bathroom has a vanity sink and over-bath shower.
The front garden has fencing on either side and is laid to lawn, which rises up to a flat area with a paved terrace in front of the lounge patio doors. The concrete driveway, which ascends past the side of the property to the garage, has both a set of steps and a separate pathway that lead to the front door. The back garden has a patio area close to the house and steps that rise up to a lawn surrounded with flower beds, mature shrubs and hedging. The garage with an up-and-over door, offers a covered space for parking, that could also be used as a workshop or even to provide additional, secure storage.
