We are pleased to bring to the market this charming 3 double bedroom, stone built, detached cottage (Formerly the Old Police House for Ettrick Valley), which offers the perfect opportunity to live an idyllic rural lifestyle, surrounded by the most scenic countryside in an area which many consider to be a largely “undiscovered” part of the Scottish Borders. Internally, this property, which retains a number of original traditional features, has the warm and homely feel to it which you might expect and conjures up cosy Winter evenings in front of the fire and equally long languid afternoons pottering about the garden throughout the Summer would spring to mind as you approach the front door! The cottage has well-proportioned accommodation throughout and comprises mainly of the following: GROUND FLOOR: The entrance hall leads to all rooms on this level. The inviting lounge, which has front aspect, has an attractive focal, open, cast iron, tiled insert fireplace and wooden mantel. There is a bench window seat and traditional, press style cupboard for storage. The kitchen/ dining room is of very generous proportions and has double aspect, ensuring much natural light to flood this area. The kitchen has a good range of base units, double “Belfast” style sink, complementary work surfaces, freestanding electric cooker, under counter fridge and separate freezer, and another focal open fire, with brick hearth and surround and wooden mantel. Within the dining room area, there is a built in traditional, open display shelved unit and another window seat. Bedroom 3 is on this level and overlooks the rear of the home and also has an open fire and benefits from a substantial built in double wardrobe. A “sunny” storeroom sits to the rear of the property and has multiple uses and potential. Adjacent, is the delightful family bathroom, which comprises of bath, separate shower enclosure, traditional style pedestal wash hand basin and WC and heated towel rail. Interestingly these last two rooms were apparently two police cells within the old Police house! UPPER FLOOR: A carpeted staircase leads to the upper floor. Here there are two double bedrooms, both with coombe ceiling. One overlooks the front of the house and benefits from a spacious built-in cupboard/wardrobe whilst the other overlooks the back garden and has a substantial, walk-in cupboard for storage requirements. GARDEN: The garden surrounding the home is laid mainly to lawn with a variety of trees, shrubs and plants to add visual interest. There is a garden shed, small pond and amazing scenery to be enjoyed whilst relaxing in the outdoors. We thoroughly recommend viewing of this delightful property to fully appreciate its potential and unique setting.
