Set in a fabulously extensive plot of over five acres, we are pleased to market this quirky 17th century former mill cottage which offers versatile accommodation and is situated at the end of a private driveway.
Surrounded by beautiful cottage gardens and a woodland beyond a burn, the current owners have spent many years making improvements and have erected a log cabin in the woodland. An oil fire external boiler has also recently been fitted.
Entering into the property via an internal porch, this leads immediately into a spacious, recently upgraded kitchen/dining area which is the hub of the home and a great family area. Fitted in a solid wood farmhouse style, with a range of wall and base units, the kitchen also has a Range Cooker within an Inglenook. Original wood beams are exposed in the ceiling and two windows provide a stunning outlook of the surrounding woodlands. A cottage style door takes you into the separate utility room, with a Belfast sink, where there is plumbing and space for additional white goods.
A ground floor shower room has been recently refitted off this area and consists of a large shower cubicle with waterfall shower head, W.C and vanity sink. A chrome heated towel rail, illuminated mirror as well as neutral tiling to the floor and half height on the walls finish off the modern look. The hallway to the rear of the home is fitted with quality oak flooring and leads through to the lounge. This room perfectly fuses the feeling of space and cosiness and has an original cast iron and tiled fireplace with a wood burning stove. French doors open the room up into the fantastic garden room, which brings the outside in and allows access to the garden. This room also has underfloor heating allowing warmth all year round. Downstairs the property also offers a formal dining area. The property also provides a large office area, which can be easily converted to a room of your choice. French doors from here lead into a double bedroom, situated at the rear of the property, with the opportunity to use this as a guest suite or annexe for multigenerational living.
The property has two staircases. The first takes you to a further double bedroom on split levels, which could provide an amazing snug, or play area addition to the bedroom. A Velux window allows for attractive views over the plot, with a further window to the rear of the property. The second staircase leads to the master bedroom where you will find a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. Two Velux windows fill the space with natural light, and en suite facilities offer a double ended bath, W.C and vanity sink. Externally, as well as acres of beautiful woodland, the property also offers a large detached double garage with power. Solar panels on the cottage also feed in around £1000 per annum.
