Gateside House is a handsome early Victorian 19th century house built of stone under a pitched tile roof with a lovely symmetrical façade. The house is ideal for entertaining and modern family living and offers beautifully proportioned accommodation over three levels extending to about 278 sqm (2,992 sqft). Much of the original charm and character of the house has been retained and includes many original features such as internal shutters, sash and casement windows and deep skirting boards.
An entrance hall lies at the heart of the house and leads off to a generous drawing room (with Multi-Fuel stove), dining room, sitting room with gas fire and large breakfasting kitchen with patio doors to rear deck.
The spacious kitchen has a large breakfasting island, AGA, separate gas and electric range cooker, double Belfast sink as well as an integral dishwasher. The large west-facing deck area, accessed from the kitchen looks out over the mature gardens. There is a shower room situated off the half landing before reaching the first floor. The principal bedroom accommodation on the first floor comprises three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom benefits from built in wardrobe storage and a magnificent en-suite bathroom with roll top bath and separate quadrant shower. There are two further bedrooms and multiple store rooms on the second floor.
A back porch leads out to the garden and a doorway leads down to an extensive basement, which is currently used as a store room and utility area with additional sinks.
Accessed by a pathway off the parking area to the side of the main house is Gateside Cottage, a lovely cottage partly constructed of stone under a series of red tiled roof which offers accommodation extending to about 54 sqm (581 sqft). The cottage offers a spacious kitchen/dining area with three steps down to a living area which benefits from French doors leading out to the patio and the garden. The bedroom, set off the kitchen has good storage and an en-suite shower room. The cottage has gas central heating supplied by a combi boiler and is fully double glazed.
This fully self-contained cottage could be used as accommodation for a relative, but also has potential to earn income from letting or holiday lets. The current passing rent is £600 per month.
