Peaceful family living in the Borders
Forming part of an exclusive steading conversion, Hutton Steading is a perfect home for those looking for a countryside retreat in a small and thriving community. Effortlessly blending a traditional stone exterior with contemporary and stylish interiors, this semi-detached house is adaptable and charming, and would make an ideal home for families.
Through the timber entrance door lies a spacious and useful lobby area, which leads to the main hallway. The lovely dining kitchen is located to one end of the house, and is a great social space with lots of space for a large table and chairs. The kitchen area is fitted with an excellent range of units with lots of worktop spaces and built in appliances, and offers direct access to the communal courtyard area. A further set of double doors lead into the light and airy sunroom which has floor to ceiling glazing on all sides, and opens onto the front garden. The exposed stone wall adds a touch of traditional charm to an otherwise contemporary interior.
The ground floor accommodation also consists of a well-proportioned shower room, with fully tiled walls and a three-piece suite with a large shower cubicle, and one of the double bedrooms. This bedroom is particularly roomy, and offers direct access to the courtyard area.
In the main hallway, an exposed timber staircase leads to the upstairs accommodation of the property. The main first floor landing offers a bright and useful space, thanks to the front window as well as a large window over the stairs to the rear. The landing also benefits from built-in storage. Both upstairs double bedrooms are bright and spacious, and feature double aspect windows as well as built-in storage. The master bedroom also features an en suite shower room. There is another bathroom located upstairs, which also benefits from fully tiled walls and a fresh white three-piece suite.
As well as the communal courtyard area, there is a private garden to the front of the property which offers great views of the surrounding countryside.
