Full description

Langton House has an excellent central location within Gavinton and enjoys some fine outlooks over the surrounding Berwickshire countryside. Gavinton is a pretty, small conservation village which had a population of 201 at the time of the 2001 census. The village has an attractive character, having originally evolved as an estate village set around its Green, and generally enjoys attractive views over the gently rolling countryside.

Nearby Duns provides a good range of amenities including both primary and secondary schools, shops, sporting and recreational facilities. There is a wider range of shops and amenities in Berwick Upon Tweed, including a mainline railway station.

Langton House is a superb B Listed former manse which has been sympathetically upgraded and improved since being sold by the church. The property is full of character and provides versatile and well portioned family sized accommodation.

The house benefits from gas fired central heating (energy efficient boiler recently fitted) and photovoltaic roof panels (installed in February 2012 and now generating an average of around £806 per annum in income). Most windows have working shutters and Langton House has several attractive working fireplaces. The central heating is augmented by a gas fired "Aga" cooker in the kitchen and a multi fuel stove in the study/living room.

Langton House has a large garden which lies to its south and west and includes lawns, patio, vegetable garden, shrubs and various fruit trees ( including an impressive pear tree against the south west wall of the mid 19th century extension). The garden enjoys a good degree of privacy and is child/dog safe.

There is an excellent outbuilding with lapsed planning consent for conversion to a two bedroom cottage. This outbuilding is of traditional stone and slate construction, has a pleasing external appearance and includes two single car garages and a good garden store. The cottage, if created, would be ideal as a "granny annex" or holiday cottage.
