Foresters Cottage is a detached stone-built period property which is surrounded by beautiful low-maintenance gardens and is situated opposite the golf course and gated entrance to Minto Estate. The property has been recently upgraded to create a beautifully presented family home which is close to the village centre, yet also has the peacefulness of being very close to countryside.
A generous sweeping drive leads up to the enclosed garden and front entrance of the traditional period home. It has a traditional storm porch entrance with glazed panels, and this leads through to the stylish living accommodation which is welcoming and spacious, following an elegant country décor and with pleasant outlooks across the gardens.
The country kitchen is the heart of this home and is filled with natural light and incorporates oak fitted units which compliment the oak ceiling beams, doors and window frames. The kitchen allows plenty of space for dining and entertaining, with adjoining doors to both the utility, with side entrance, and conservatory to the rear. The drawing room sits to the front of the property and retains a cosy feel with its open fire and attractive cottage style windows which lets in lovely morning light. There is a further public room providing a formal dining room setting, and it is fitted with an inglenook wood burner.
A useful cloakroom opens from the hallway, while a carpeted stair leads to the first floor. The master bedroom is well proportioned, with an adjoining en suite shower room, and this room enjoys good views from its dual aspect windows. The further three bedrooms are well presented and bright, with the third ideal as a study or child’s bedroom. The family bathroom has a newly fitted bath with shower, tiling from ceiling to floor, with vanity unit, fitted mirror, spotlighting and further bathroom accessories.
The charming village of Minto is home to a selection of country homes, with a blend of traditional and modern style properties sitting within rolling countryside. Minto is a much sought after Borders location near Denholm, and is set in glorious countryside below the Minto Hills and some of the best views in the Borders. Minto is a mile or so from the thriving village of Denholm with its local shops, village pubs, bistro, garage and primary school with secondary schools at Hawick or Jedburgh and Private Schooling at St Mary’s Melrose. The area offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities including horse riding, cycling and walking in the surrounding hills and woodlands, while the 18-hole golf course is on your doorstep.
