Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An enchanting 2-storey detached, traditional, stone-built 18th century cottage, Headchesters has been sympathetically renovated and greatly enhanced by the current owner. The property features a sizeable kitchen/dining/family room incorporating hand-crafted cabinets and Junckers maple worktops, a bespoke wooden staircase which houses the custom-built bookshelves, extensive and unobtrusive under-eaves storage, a Rayburn Royal oil-fired cooker (providing 24/7 hot water), and a multi-fuel stove. Internal doors are of solid-core construction, the custom-designed windows are of high-security specification, and there is also a zoned alarm system. This bright, airy, spacious property is full of character and charm, and offers further potential (subject to relevant permissions, should these be deemed necessary) to convert the stone outbuildings and the linking timber store/workshop. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this delightful coastal villa and its spectacular sea views.

LOCATION
Headchesters is situated in an elevated position, in an idyllic location, a short distance from the pretty village of Cockburnspath. Located on the Berwickshire Coastal Route, between Cockburnspath and Coldingham, this historic former coaching inn is only 2 miles from the A1, and approx 5 miles from the East Lothian boundary. The timeless and picturesque towns and fishing villages of Cove, Coldingham, St Abbs and Eyemouth are also very close at hand, offering excellent primary and secondary schools, leisure facilities, shops, restaurants, bars, coastal walks and beautiful beaches. Edinburgh City Centre is only 39 miles away, and Dunbar Railway Station is 12 miles northwards (with a journey time of less than 20 minutes to Edinburgh Waverley), making Headchesters the perfect combination of blissful, peaceful country living and easy commuting.
