Full description

'Kirkgate Cottage' is a very sweet and traditional property offerings lots of charm and character. Located towards the outer edge of the village the cottage enjoys a leafy outlook to the front as well as a very private, sun trap patio garden to the rear. Having been used in recent years as a successful holiday let cottage 'Kirkgate' would be ideal for those looking to take on a similar venture, however the cottage would also be equally well suited as a main home with deceptively spacious accommodation throughout.

Local shopping, primary and nursery schooling is available at Chirnside with the main shops and the east coast rail connection some 12 miles away at Berwick upon Tweed. The county town of Duns is five miles west with its recently built state of the art secondary school while Edinburgh is approx 50 miles and one hour by car via the A1. The area is famous for country pursuits with fishing on the nearby Whiteadder Water and the famous River Tweed and provides ideal walking and horse country in the Cheviot and Lammermuir hills.

A traditional timber entrance door opens into a charming and very welcoming hallway with a carpeted staircase extending to the upper floor and traditional timber cladding to dado height. A large under stair cupboard provides a useful facility with internal light. Located to the rear of the property is the surprisingly spacious lounge which features traditionally high ceilings, decorative cornicing and dado rail. Two large timber lined windows overlook the rear patio garden as well as ensuring good natural light. A lovely focal point is provided by the open coal fire which is set onto a tiled hearth with matching inlay and chunky timber surround. The breakfasting kitchen is fitted with a good range of wooden fronted wall and base units with ample worktop space, tiled splash backs and space for slot in appliances. The room provides space for small table and chairs and features a double aspect window as well as a part glazed door allowing access to the patio garden. Bedroom one is conveniently located on the ground floor with deep sill front facing window and an ornate cast iron fireplace providing a pleasant centre point. This is a particularly spacious double room with ample space for a range of furniture.

A carpeted staircase leads to the first floor landing with hatch to attic. Bedroom two is a further well proportioned double room which enjoys good natural light thanks to the front facing dormer window. Built in wardrobes to one wall provide excellent storage. The bathroom is freshly presented with timber panelling to dado height and is fitted with a modern white three piece suite comprising WC, pedestal sink and timber panelled bath with tiled surround and electric shower over. Rear facing velux window.

A very sweet, fully enclosed patio garden lies to the rear of the property.
