Elvinside is an attractive traditional farmhouse pleasantly situated on the edge of Hurlford with lovely countryside views.

Located in a private position, Elvinside offers a remarkable opportunity for those seeking a semi-rural property with excellent income potential both from the florist shop and the detached cottage. The property is built on two storeys, of brick with a white render finish with black window trims under a slate roof and offers spacious accommodation. The farmhouse has been renovated to provide modern fittings whilst retaining much of the original character and charm of the property. The florist business, attached to the house has a separate entrance and customer parking. Within the large grounds, a former barn has recently been converted into a charming modern two bedroom cottage. Potentially an excellent granny flat, the cottage could also be utilised for holiday or longer term lettings.
Elvinside has been finished to a high standard yet is in keeping with its traditional roots. The accommodation includes a reception hall from which there is access to the sitting room which is a spacious room with cornicing, ceiling rose, picture rail and a wood burning stove set in a brick inglenook with a slate hearth. There is a generously sized downstairs bedroom with walk in cupboard. The tastefully crafted bathroom is fully tiled with free standing bath, w.c., walk-in shower, table top wash hand basin and heated towel rail. The kitchen has cream country cottage style wall and base units, integrated fridge, a Smeg gas double oven and seven burner hob with extractor fan, Belfast sink and laminate flooring. The dining room is off the kitchen with dual aspect windows and a wood burning stove. There is a useful utility room with Belfast sink and wall and floor units. Stairs lead to two good sized bedrooms with coombed ceilings and lovely views over the surrounding countryside. There is ample cupboard space throughout.
The florist shop has its own entrance and an integral door to the house. It is well fitted out with preparation counter and floral display area.
