Full description

TWO IN ONE………An exciting and unique opportunity to purchase what is effectively two houses under one roof.

‘Burnside Lodge’ which is currently occupied by two generations of the same family has been individually designed and incorporates two self contained annexes. The property consists of a west wing and an east wing in addition to sizeable shared family accommodation which is central to both annexes.

The whole property extends to over 400 m2 and occupies a sizeable south facing plot. Offering great flexibility and versatility Burnside Lodge would lend itself to various uses. Designed and currently used for extended family the property is ideally equipped for this purpose however alternative uses could include bed and breakfast, a self contained holiday apartment or perhaps the separate annexes would offer some independence for teenage children etc.

As you would expect from a property of this calibre it offers all the comforts associated with modern day living including under floor heating throughout, a highly efficient heating system with ground source heat pump, a south facing Juliet balcony and en-suite bedrooms.

The property has been finished to an extremely high standard with well equipped and spacious accommodation throughout and has been designed in such a way that both annexes are completely self contained and private from each other, both with south facing aspects and lovely views which take in the Cheviots in the distance. Externally the gardens are delightful, wrapping around the property from the parking area to the front; the main area of garden to the rear is sizeable and enjoys excellent sun throughout the day, having been landscaped to incorporate neatly planted areas, a large lawn and pleasant seating areas.

Heading west on the B6460 Berwick - Greenlaw road, continue past the Allanton/Whitsome junction for approximately one mile and turn left signposted to Ravelaw. Continue for a further one mile with Burnside Lodge quietly situated to the far corner of this select development, approximately half a mile out of Whitsome.

Double width timber doors to the front of the property open into an impressive entrance vestibule with windows to either side and stylish tiled flooring. A built-in cupboard houses the utility meters.

Glazed double internal doors open from the vestibule into the impressive and lengthy hallway which features a continuation of the tiled flooring and a sun pipe half way down the hall. The main hallway provides excellent storage with two large built-in cupboards and all guest accommodation, together with the main family room, is accessed off this central hall. The study/sixth bedroom is situated next to the front entrance door and has a window to the front. This room provides an ideal, peaceful office but could easily provide a sixth double bedroom if required. Further along the corridor lie another two double bedrooms both with excellent built in storage and side windows overlooking a small area of the garden. One of these bedrooms benefits from a modern and freshly presented en-suite shower room which is fitted with a three piece white suite. The main family bathroom is surprisingly spacious and fitted with a white wc, washhand basin and panelled bath with tiled walls to dado height and a fully tiled corner shower cubicle with a chrome mixer shower. An impressive family room is centrally located within the property and features a delightful south facing and highly private aspect over the garden to the rear. This room is flooded with natural light which is further enhanced by the glazed double doors which lead to the garden with floor to ceiling glazed side panels in addition to two further windows. A lovely focal point is provided by the exposed open stone fireplace while the built-in shelved cupboards allow for good storage. Opposite the main family room is a further well proportioned room, currently used as a hobby room but could equally make for an additional double bedroom with front facing window.
