Whilst the cottage boasts modern interior design and generous accommodation, with multiple reception rooms and bathrooms, the vibrant plot of land provides a huge opportunity to extend and to create additional dwellings, subject to planning permission. Included within this plot are two paddocks and a wooden outbuilding that covers 693 square feet, providing plenty of room for creative use, whether as an office, a potential guest house, or a hobby centre. In addition, the cottage has an attached stable (with an upper stable) that has planning approval from 2017 to be converted into additional living accommodation, with the option to redesign the plans. Subject to consent, this could be used as a separate dwelling or even as a self-contained annexe, proving ideal as a rental holiday/guest home.

With a beautiful approach flanked by open countryside, Commoncraig Cottage impresses from the outset. Inside, the front door opens to a naturally-lit porch leading to a hall with storage. It is an inviting first impression, defined by neutral décor and timber-inspired flooring. On the right is the living room. Presented with a tasteful accent wall and with soft carpeting, this appealing reception space has the luxury of a cosy log-burning stove, inset into a rustic mantelpiece and hearth. Light-filled and generously proportioned, it is an ideal room for everyday use. Furthermore, it could be utilised as a fourth double bedroom if required, thanks to a family room providing a second reception area.

In the dining kitchen, a sophisticated design incorporates modern cabinets and black granite-effect worktops to great effect, creating a well-appointed space that leaves plenty of room for a large table. Ideal for family meals and lively dinner parties, it comes with a dual-fuel range cooker, a brand-new integrated washer/dryer, an integrated dishwasher, and an American-style fridge/freezer. From here, double doors make a grand entrance into the family room, which enjoys a soothing ambience with subtle decoration and solid oak flooring. It further boasts a spacious footprint and dual-aspect glazing, with patio doors to outside framing delightful countryside views. Also on this level are two accessible double bedrooms that are bright and airy and supplemented by built-in cupboards. Finishing the ground floor is a contemporary three-piece family bathroom with a rainfall overhead shower and attractive tiling. On the first floor, the master bedroom awaits. Currently arranged for children, this king-size bedroom has dual-aspect windows and the sole use of a fully-tiled bathroom, offering a modern three-piece suite and built-in storage. Oil central heating (via a new boiler, pipes, and radiators) and double glazing ensure optimal comfort.

Externally, there is 1.75 acres of land to be utilised, whether for farming, personal use, or for further building opportunities (subject to consent). This land includes a large lawned garden by the cottage, which also enjoys a generous timber deck for alfresco dining, and two vast paddocks that could be used for livestock. Furthermore, there are invigorating woodland walks to the village and an idyllic burn close by. Extensive private parking is provided via a sweeping courtyard and a gravelled drive.

Please note: Plans and drawings for the 2017 approved stable conversion are available upon request.
