Enjoying spectacular, far reaching southerly views towards the distant Cheviot Hills and a convenient central location affording ready access to village amenities Inch Cottage is a delightful, detached period property with lovely original features reminiscent of a grander, bygone age. Careful to preserve its character and charm the current owner has sympathetically and tastefully modernised the property in recent times to provide bright, well proportioned and elegant accommodation comprising:- Entrance Vestibule, Hall, Sitting Room, Dining Kitchen, 3 double Bedrooms and Bathroom. Attractive laminate flooring and neutral décor create a clean, fresh look and of course double glazing and LPG central heating are installed throughout. There is vehicular access to the side of the property providing excellent off-street parking and there is also the added bonus of a detached stone/brick built outbuilding/garage at the foot of the garden affording a variety of potential uses. Properties such as this rarely come to market and as such early viewing is highly recommended.
Situated on top of a hill, the conveniently located village of Chirnside enjoys fantastic views to the Cheviot Hills in the south and Lammermuir Hills in the west. Home of the world famous racing driver, Jim Clark, and with a population of approximately 1,240 it has several shops, inns, a post office, doctors’ surgery, pharmacy and primary school. Secondary schooling is available in the nearby town of Duns (approx 6 miles) which also provides a good range of shopping and leisure facilities. More extensive shopping is available in the larger, historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed which also has a mainline railway station (approx 9 miles). In addition a mainline train station will soon be operational from the nearby village of Reston (approx. 5 miles) giving valuable commuter access to Edinburgh and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
The substantial front door gives entry to a useful vestibule with original tiled floor. A partly glazed door with etched glass panel and decorative side panels then gives access to an attractive, good sized hallway with loft access.
