Berryview has an interesting history having once been 2 workers cottages owned by the well known Lyle Estate. Having historically been called Berry Cottage, the property has been a much loved home since 2006 and is now being sold to enable them to downsize.
The house sits in a lovely part of the village offering access on the doorstep to the entrance down to Barrington court and with various idyllic footpaths around the village and more elevated walks to the south along the ridge which enjoys extensive views over most of the district. The village pub, church and village hall are just a short walk away.
The property offers well laid out accommodation with the entrance hall splitting the kitchen/breakfast room to the right complete with utility room and fitted storage along with a cloakroom. To the left of the hall sit 2 attractive reception rooms both with stone fireplaces, the principal reception being a particularly impressive room with triple aspect windows and access on to the attractive sunny gardens.
To the first floor there are 4 good sized bedrooms, none of which are overlooked by surrounding properties. The accommodation is completed with a family bathroom.
In all, the house sits in gardens extending to 0.239 of an acre.
