Linton Mill Cottage has an excellent rural location approximately one mile north of Morebattle and 6 miles to the southeast of Kelso. The cottage enjoys fine outlooks to both front and rear with the front elevation having a southerly aspect and enjoying peaceful views over the Kale Water Valley to the Cheviots.
Morebattle is an attractive small village with a useful range of amenities including a post office/general store, primary school, inn and church. The surrounding countryside is noted for its scenic beauty and offers a wide range of country pursuits.
Nearby Kelso is a historic and attractive Borders town which lies at the junction of the River Tweed and the River Teviot. Floors Castle lies on the edge of the town. Kelso has a wide range of shops, supermarkets, sporting and recreational facilities and an impressive new High School has recently been opened. The sporting and recreational facilities include an ice rink, golf course, swimming pool and National Hunt racecourse.
Travelling towards Morebattle from Kelso on the B6436 turn left on to the minor road signed Linton Burnfoot, almost opposite Linton Church. Linton Mill Cottage lies on your left a short distance down this minor road.
Linton Mill Cottage is a delightful traditional detached Victorian cottage which enjoys fine outlooks. The cottage was extensively modernised in 2011 and this work included a new roof, new kitchen, new utility room and most windows being replaced with double glazed wooden windows. The cottage benefits from electric central heating and an original cast iron Victorian bath and new shower. There is good built in storage space and decorations are tasteful.
The bank of windows in the kitchen offer panoramic views of the Cheviots.
Linton Mill Cottage has a tremendous garden which is nicely landscaped and includes lawns, borders, patio, gravel, bricked area, York paving and mature shrubs. There is a pretty wooden summer house in the garden.
A particularly appealing feature of the cottage is its south facing studio/office with French windows leading onto a south facing terrace. With its excellent natural light, it would be perfect for an artist. Heated by a log burner, it currently provides a spacious studio/office area with WC (with WC and basin) off. It appears to have potential for conversion to a granny annexe or holiday cottage - subject to planning. Attached to this studio is a potting shed with adjoining greenhouse/conservatory and fuel store.
