Property Summary

DESCRIPTION
Overlooking the village green of this popular and sought after village, Greenrig is a deceptively spacious, detached cottage offering excellent potential to create a fabulous family home. Given the lifestyle changes of recent times its village location will no doubt appeal to those seeking a quieter way of life with the convenience of having local amenities nearby and, for those with children the playpark on the green provides a safe and convenient attraction. Whilst the property clearly requires some upgrading it nevertheless affords an excellent project for an enthusiastic purchaser with well proportioned and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors comprising:- Entrance Lobby, Sitting Room, Study, Bathroom, Dining Kitchen, Family Room, three Bedrooms two with en-suite Shower Rooms and large Conservatory opening out into a sheltered and enclosed sun trap garden. A large garage/workshop with separate WC offers tremendous potential for a variety of uses and a good sized driveway affords generous parking for three cars. Double glazing and gas central heating are installed. Early viewing is highly recommended.

LOCATION
Gavinton is a friendly and charming conservation village centred around an attractive village green and its adjacent village hall which provides an excellent hub for many village activities. Well placed to enjoy all the benefits increasingly associated with the Scottish Borders it lies in a lovely rural area approximately 2 miles from the nearby town of Duns which provides excellent shopping, recreational, medical and educational facilities for its size, the latter having been greatly enhanced by its state of the art secondary school and newly refurbished primary school. Gavinton is also within easy commuting distance of the larger Border towns being approximately 15 miles from Berwick-up on-Tweed, with its mainline railway station, 17 miles from Kelso and 45 miles from Edinburgh.

ACCOMMODATION
The front door leads into a small entrance lobby with quarry tiled floor and decorative glazed panel and door to the sitting room. The sitting room has a south facing window, deep fireplace recess and open staircase to the first floor. A further glazed door to the left of the sitting room leads into a smaller front facing room which could serve as a fourth bedroom if required and which in turn accesses a useful downstairs bathroom with west facing window and white three piece suite. Returning to the sitting room a door to the rear leads into a large dining kitchen with double doors and windows to the conservatory and decorative brick surround originally intended to house an Aga or Rayburn. The west facing conservatory creates a perfect transition between the house and garden and provides a lovely, tranquil spot for relaxation. Returning to the kitchen two steps at the rear lead up to a family/multi purpose room with two west and one east facing windows. This room has a shelved press, two good sized storage cupboards and a spiral staircase leading up to a heavily coombed Bedroom 3 and en-suite shower room. Returning to the sitting room the stairs turn up to a small landing area giving access to Bedrooms 1 and 2 all with south facing skylights and coombed ceilings. Bedroom 1 also has the added benefit of a dressing area with west facing Velux window and housing the gas central heating boiler. Beyond this is another en-suite shower room with west facing skylight.
