Pinewood House is situated in the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Borders, between Peebles and Innerleithen. Peeblesshire is one of the most scenic and accessible parts of the Borders, with rolling hills, farmland and woodland. Cardrona village is set on the banks of the River Tweed and has a vibrant community based around the village hall, café and golf club. The attractive market towns of Peebles and Innerleithen offer excellent local services including supermarkets and a wide range of independent retailers, professional services and recreational facilities. The village has a school bus service to and from Peebles providing transport to Priorsford and Halyrude (RC) primary schools and Peebles High School. The independent schools of Edinburgh and Loretto School in Musselburgh (28 miles) are within easy reach.

Pinewood House enjoys a wonderfully peaceful rural position, overlooking the River Tweed, and has direct access onto the Macdonald Cardrona Golf Course. The property is well positioned for commuting into Edinburgh, and Edinburgh Airport (30 miles) has flights to an increasing number of domestic and international destinations.

The area is renowned for its outdoor activities. The River Tweed is the most prolific salmon river in Scotland and shooting can be let on nearby estates. In addition to the championship golf course at Cardrona, there are further golf courses at both Innerleithen and Peebles. Stobo Castle, Peebles Hydro and the Macdonald Cardrona Hotel and Spa all offer good leisure facilities, while the 7 Stanes trails of Glentress and Innerleithen provide some fantastic routes for mountain bikers.

Description

Situated on the edge of Cardrona village, Pinewood House enjoys spectacular open views over the Macdonald Cardrona Golf Course and the River Tweed. The property was built to exacting standards in 2001 by Manor Kingdom, and forms part of an exclusive development of houses. The detached property is set back from a peaceful cul-de-sac, with parking area and garaging to the front.

Entering the property through a vestibule, glass doors open up onto a spacious entrance hall with timber staircase sweeping up to the first floor. There is an open plan sitting area with patio doors overlooking the garden and to the right of the hall is a cosy room used as a family TV room. There is a large drawing room with dual aspect windows, feature fireplace and steps down to a spacious and bright conservatory.

To the left of the hall is an extensive kitchen with breakfast area. The kitchen, designed by Tweeddale Kitchens, has fitted base and wall units, and a cream two oven Aga. There is space within the cabinetry for both fridge and freezer. Steps lead down to the breakfast area, which has a wood panelled ceiling. The utility room is located next to the kitchen, and provides access to the back garden. There is also a generously sized dining room.

On the first floor the master suite comprises a large bedroom, with bay window and balcony overlooking the garden and golf course, a dressing room, and a shower room. Three further double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes are all accessed from the first floor landing, one with an en suite shower room, and one with access onto a stone balcony overlooking the front of the property. A family bathroom serves the two bedrooms without en suites.

The loft above the garage has been converted to create a large fifth bedroom with a study/ bedroom 6 and shower room. It would be possible to annexe this area with a separate access from the garage.


GARDENS AND GROUNDS

Outside, the garden is principally situated to the back of the house and is very private with a strip of woodland with a mixture of Scots pine, larch, and spruce trees running along the edge of the golf course. The garden has been carefully landscaped and planted to provide colourful borders in the spring. A patio borders the house and provides a delightful outdoor seating area.

Two garden sheds are located on each side of the house and provide ample storage space for tools, while doubling up as useful workshops. Tucked on the edge of the woodland garden is the wooden barbeque hut with integrated barbeque and chimney. Positioned on an area of wooden decking, this provides a peaceful place to sit overlooking the golf course. There is also a feature Koi pond set in the middle of the large lawn. Bordering the patio area are raised beds in which fruit and vegetables can be grown.
