The fragrant rambling Rose and trailing Honeysuckle framing the front door offer a hint of what to expect within the walls of this delightful, traditional stone built, two bedroom, semi-detached house. Built in 1886, “Lynwood” has retained many original features but offers all the comforts of contemporary living and along with its enchanting terraced gardens, it truly offers a unique setting in which to live. The property, which is set over two levels, has very well-proportioned accommodation, Gas Central Heating, partial Double Glazing and boasts generous storage space. Externally, the fabulous rear Garden ground sets it apart. The owner has made excellent use of the sloping grounds to create a 3-tiered rear Garden, which is awash with colour and interesting features to create a wonderfully useful outdoor space. It is clear that considerable expenditure, planning and labour have been involved in creating this awe inspiring feature of the home but happily it is set up in such a way that maintenance is straightforward and absolutely not time consuming. The most difficult aspect is likely to be where to choose to sit and take in the marvellous panoramic views of the surrounding scenic countryside! In terms of location, Walkerburn has much appeal being well placed for easy access to the city of Edinburgh and obviously the nearer Borders town of Innerleithen, Galashiels and Peebles. Surrounded by stunning countryside, it offers potential for a wide variety of outdoor pursuits and of course there are world class mountain biking facilities in the immediate area but horse riding, fishing, hill walking, golfing, cycling etc are among the many activities on offer. Retail therapy is also at hand locally and along with a host of places of interest to visit, all bases are covered! Primary schooling is within the town itself whilst secondary school education is provided for in Peebles. The accommodation comprises mainly of the following: The Entrance Vestibule welcomes you into this beautiful home. On the left, there is a useful walk-in coat/boot storage cupboard. In turn, the Entrance Hall with internal round feature window, has an under stairs walk-in cupboard providing fabulous storage space. The fabulous Lounge, has a front aspect bay window which is a notable feature in itself. With beautiful, original timber panelling, working sash and case windows, deluxe brass curtain rail and with equally opulent curtains, it sets the stage perfectly for the rest of the room, which also features an absolutely stunning, original feature fireplace. They don't make them like this anymore folks! Other noteworthy features include original cornice, centre ceiling rose, picture rail, wood floor and Edinburgh style press (cupboard). Additionally, the outlook from the windows is over the breath-taking, surrounding panoramic countryside so a strategically placed chair is a must. Truly a “room with a view”!! The rear aspect Breakfasting/Dining Kitchen does not disappoint either. It has all that is required for casual and more formal dining occasions, including a good range of wall and base units, built in gas cooker with extractor hood and AEG oven, a substantial breakfast bar , separate formal dining area a valuable walk-in traditional pantry, original open built in shelving unit, and with its bright, airy and spacious accommodation, you are likely to feel inclined to spend considerable time in here. The sizeable rear aspect Utility Room with sink and ample worktop space, complements the Kitchen perfectly. It offers additional space for various culinary preparations as well as the normal usage. A door leads to the back Garden. Upper Level: From the Entrance Hall stairs lead to the Upper Level where there are two spacious double Bedrooms. The Bedroom to the front has a characterful coombe ceiling and boasts very considerable space for freestanding furniture. It enjoys the stunning views towards the delightful countryside that surrounds this property. The rear aspect Bedroom, also with coombe ceiling, boasts original working shutters, built-in cupboards and enjoys views over the terraced rear Garden. The rear aspect family Bathroom completes the accommodation on this level and comprises bath with overhead Mira shower, wash hand basin and WC set within a very attractive range of vanity units, tiled floor and an unusual combined radiator/towel rail. On the landing is access to the floored attic offering very ample storage space and this is accessed by means of a ramsay ladder. Gardens: The front Gardens boast a variety of well established shrubs, trees and flowering plants with a seating area to enjoy the views. The rear Garden, as previously mentioned, has been created to provide 3 separate “tiers “each seamlessly connected, and providing so much variety and visual impact that it's hard to know where to look first! Tier one has a barbecue area with outside dining table and chairs and is surrounded by a wealth of greenery and plants and provides an ideal set up for small social gatherings. Tier two has a lawn surrounded by yet more colourful plants and shrubs, with a garden bench from which to take it all in. The final tier which also has a useful shed, offers more seating which allows not only visual appreciation of the garden itself but of the surrounding scenic countryside. A gate leads directly on to the neighbouring field at the back of the property and quite simply, you can walk for miles if you choose. This Garden is magical and needs to be seen to fully appreciate its uniqueness and appeal! A further shed, located directly outside the back of the house and in common with the “top” shed, even manages to add to the visual appeal, being painted in an attractive azure blue. Lastly there is ample on street parking. We thoroughly recommend viewing of this delightful property, its Gardens and enviable scenic setting.
