DESCRIPTIONThe cottage is constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof and provides characterful and beautifully presented accommodation over one and a half storeys. The front door opens into a porch and on to a dining kitchen with high quality, modern wall and floor units and a range cooker. From here a door leads to the sitting room which has a wood burning stove and exposed stone wall. Off the sitting room is a compact but useful study. The inner hallway gives access to an impressive garden room which has a full height ceiling, wood burning stove and French doors out to the garden. Also off the hallway is a good sized bedroom and the bathroom. Two bright and well-proportioned first floor bedrooms complete the accommodation.GARDEN AND GROUNDSOutside, the delightful grounds extend to about 8.31 acres and are nicely bordered by mature trees providing a high degree of privacy. Located adjacent to the cottage are a range of excellent traditional farm buildings including the grade C listed former mill, steading (including a laundry and dog grooming parlour) and a separate steading with a first floor loft above with 16 solar panels on the roof. There is also a detached garage and car port with room for 5 vehicles. Not only do the buildings provide significant scope for further redevelopment (subject to planning), they are also very attractive buildings in their own right providing very useful storage space. A great deal of work has been carried out to these buildings in recent years and they are now wind and water tight. To the south of the buildings is a charming burn with a wooden bridge over which accesses a tract of land with great potential for use as paddocks for horses or other livestock. This area also includes a polytunnel and fruit trees. To the side of the cottage is a delightful cottage garden which includes an array of mature plants, an established vegetable plot and a seating area. To the rear of the cottage is a Shepherd’s Hut, log fired hot tub and adjacent landscaped area, ideal for use as holiday let.
