The sash and case windows are Argon gas filled for maximum insulation.

Myrehaugh Cottage

Whilst there has been a dwelling at Myrehaugh registered since around 1725, the cottage that stands today is thought to date back to around 1850. The original part of the cottage is of traditional stone construction with a slate roof. It is double glazed with electric central heating.
The family/kitchen/ dining room, benefits from an oil fuelled Aga, and has fitted wall and base units with Belfast sink. There is a walk in pantry fitted with shelves and under worktop storage for an appliance. There is an external door off the kitchen onto a south facing paved and gravelled patio entertaining areas, with mature plants and borders.

There are 3 generous double bedrooms all carpeted, with fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has en-suite shower room, with white WC and sink. Fitted with a mirrored vanity unit, and heated towel rail. The family bathroom is fitted with white suite, the bath has an electric shower over.
The current owners have obtained planning permission for a separate driveway to be created if desired to the cottage, giving it complete independence.

The grounds of Myrehaugh, are simply stunning with panoramic breathtaking views in every direction. Total land of 9 acres, includes two paddocks one to the rear and one to the front of the property, and garden and parkland surrounding the properties of approximately 2.5 acres.

Both the main house and the cottage have their own private gardens laid to lawn and surrounded by mature borders planted with trees, shrubs and herbaceous flowers. There is a feature pond at the main house.

The outbuildings consist of a traditional stone built stable block, thought to have been built around the same time as the cottage. This building is attached to the main house, where the boot room, laundry and WC forms part of. The remaining part of the building already is fitted with underfloor heating, and would lend itself to be further developed for office space or family games room. The roof was replaced in 2007, and is of typical construction with Scottish slate.
There is a further larger outbuilding. Constructed of timber with galvanised metal cladding. This currently offers two large stable boxes, tack room and hay storage. There is also a large garage, with double doors that could house 2-3 cars.

Originally the building was all stables and has the facility to easily convert back to this if required.
There is also a large potting shed, of timber construction which also offers over hanging for storage.

There is external lighting surrounding the property, and water supplies both at the paddocks and at 4 points around the property. There is also outside electricity power supplies.
The property is serviced with a private water supply via bore hole within the property grounds. The sewage is also private, with a septic tank and soakaway for each property.
