Achmelvich is an outstanding three bedroomed bungalow, nestled in the tranquil but semi-rural location of Romanno Bridge. Achmelvich is a fantastic, versatile, bright and spacious house- perfectly located in a village environment but yet close to all amenities. This house offers great access to both Edinburgh and the market towns of Biggar and Peebles. Built around 1977, this stunning family home is in an enviable situation with outstanding views from the front and rear of the house, and both Newlands Nursery and primary school are a mere 150 meters from the house.
This house has been extended over the years to provide an entry porch to the front of the house and a conservatory/sunroom to back gardens, giving direct access to the sunny rear garden and patio area, perfect for those family days.
Practicalities are well taken care of by entering Achmelvich through the double-glazed entrance porch giving plenty of space for coats and boots. This then naturally flows into the L shaped hall, with ample built in storage and access off to the large and sunny front facing lounge area with feature windows and warming electric effect fire. The lounge then leads through to the naturally bright dining room with patio doors giving direct access onto the patio area, and gardens. The kitchen , with large feature window overlooking the garden, can both be accessed from the hallway or the dining room and is fitted with an excellent range of wall and base units, sink with fitted food waste disposer, ceramic hob, double electric oven with extractor and built in dishwasher. There is ample space for a free-standing fridge/freezer. The sunroom/conservatory can be reached from the kitchen and lends itself to being the idyllic location for either a dining room or additional quiet space with wrap around double glazed windows overlooking the gardens and further afield. This addition to Achmelvich has been carefully planned with additional insulation and built in blinds and gives a further access to the beautiful gardens. The utility room has a sink with draining area, built in storage and houses the washing machine and space for a tumble drier.
At the end of the hallway lies the main bedroom with views to the rear gardens and beyond- and provides a naturally peaceful room with built in wardrobes and blinds and leads onto the en-suite. This modern en-suite features a wash hand basin with vanity storage, drawer unit, WC, walk in shower cubicle and a heated white towel rail.
There are a further 2 good sized front facing double bedrooms, with built in wardrobes. The family bathroom has a 3-piece suite, with a Mira electric shower over the bath. There is a vanity unit, electric fan extractor and heated stainless-steel towel rail.
The extensive gardens which are approximately ¼ acre, surround the whole of the property, with a full garage sized workshop with power, a greenhouse also with power and a garden shed. The summer house which sits adjacent to the rear patio, has both the walls and ceiling insulated, and provide significant additional storage space and power. There are external sources for both power and water and a hard-standing area to the front of the house. Externally the house also features lighting and a burglar alarm system.
Located within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh and the surrounding Border towns and enjoying the beauty of the Borders countryside, Achmelvich is well placed to enjoy the best of both worlds.
