Description 1 Catcune Mill Cottages is a charming and deceptively large 4-5 bedroom family home nestled in a terrace of cottages and located in a tranquil rural hamlet yet within easy reach of the new Border Railway at Gorebridge, Edinburgh's city by-pass and the city itself. The property comprises the original stone built period cottage and a more recent extension which together provide impressive, versatile and generous family accommodation. The entrance hall is modern in design with a slate tile floor and a large overhead skylight which provides excellent levels of natural light. The hall provides a link between the original period cottage to one side and the new extension to the other. To the rear of the hall there is a separate WC and a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, the central heating boiler, hot water cylinder and electrical consumer board. To one side of the hall is the modern extension with a large open plan kitchen/dining/family room at ground floor level and two bedrooms and a dressing room with plumbing in place to convert to a further bathroom above. The kitchen area has a range of wall and floor based kitchen units with ample work surfaces and a modern 'Range' style cooker with two ovens, a plate warmer and an eight ring gas burner. There is a slate tiled floor with under floor heating and ample room for a large kitchen table. The family area has a hard wood floor and the whole room enjoys a delightful west facing aspect onto the garden. From this room a set of glazed concertina doors lead out to a spacious timber decked terrace and the woodland garden beyond. The two upstairs bedrooms enjoy westerly views onto the woodland garden and across the local countryside. Within the period section of the house there is a large sitting room with a log burning stove, a study or 5th bedroom, a bathroom and two further bedrooms, one on the ground floor and the other at the top of a staircase in the sitting room.
