*****A verbal offer is under consideration for this property*****DESCRIPTION The former Ernmenzie steading was converted by the current owners in 2005 to form three properties with all three properties being architect designed. Ernmenzie Cottage benefits from a south easterly aspect, allowing a bright and spacious property while retaining a cosy, cottage feel. The kitchen has ample room for dining and benefits from integrated appliances including: hob with double oven and extractor above, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Adjoining is the separate utility room which houses the oil-fired boiler and controls for the underfloor heating.
