15 South Main street is of whinstone construction with sandstone quoins, lintels and sills, and sits under a tiled roof. Steeped in history the property was once three cottages sitting parallel to one another, access to the first cottage was from South Main Street and access to the other two cottages was from the Pend. The property, now a substantial two storey house, has retained much of its original character, the cosy Sitting Room has an exposed beam above the recessed shelving and wood panelling up to dado rail height, painted in a subtle Farrow and Ball shade of green. A multi fuel stove set in the original fireplace keeps the room warm on winters nights. The Kitchen opens though to the Dining Room which has a mezzanine level above, previously used as a sleeping platform when the house was a small cottage. The area, classed as storage space, is now a well lit Study with two velux windows, light from which streams into the Dining Room through an opening in the ceiling. An essential addition to the property is the cedar wood extension containing Shower Room with a wetroom layout. The garden has raised beds filled with small trees and shrubs placed carefully to create a scenic walkway to the Summer House. The Summer House is almost a modern extension to the house, the perfect place to enjoy the garden and entertain friends complete with Kitchen and Dining Area, as well as space to sit and enjoy the view. The greenhouse, four garden sheds and raised vegetable beds are ideal for keen gardeners, and an artificial lawn means there is no need to mow the lawn. 15 South Main Street has oil fired central heating and double glazed windows throughout. This property would suit all walks of life, a small family, a couple, or person on their own as there is something in this house for everyone, including budding authors who would like to relax and enjoy life in Scotland’s Book Town.
