‘Culmailie’ is a registered small holding and enjoys a fabulous spot within this popular Berwickshire village, nestled onto the banks of the River Tweed. The property sits in generous gardens with adjoining paddocks extending in total to around five acres, ideal for those looking to keep live stock or for the equestrian buyer with the added benefit of a timber stable block and adjoining tack room with additional storage. The property itself has been thoughtfully designed with the main orientation of the accommodation looking over the grounds. The main living areas boast an open plan arrangement, ideal for the needs of modern family life whilst there are also bedroom and bathroom facilities at both ground and first floor level making it ideal if catering for guests or extended family.

Educational and sporting facilities and quality shops at nearby Kelso or Coldstream where the Hirsel Estate is a particular attraction. Birgham has good links with Edinburgh and Newcastle an hour by car and the main east coast rail connection at Berwick-upon-Tweed some eighteen miles distant.

Ground Floor Accommodation
A large gravelled parking area provides space for several vehicles with the detached double garage lying to the side. A glazed front door with fully glazed side panels open into a useful vestibule with built in cloaks cupboard. A further glazed internal door then opens into the main reception hall which ensures a lovely warm welcome and features the carpeted staircase extending to the upper floor. The internal glazed doors off the hallway ensure a good flow of light into the main sitting room which also benefits from dual aspect windows overlooking the gardens beyond. The room provides ample space to one end for a formal dining table if desired whilst an open arch leads into the neighbouring family room which in turn is open to the kitchen. This open plan arrangement works perfectly for modern family life and provides an excellent sociable space. The family room again benefits from an array of windows ensuring good light and provides space for sofas or such like if desired. The kitchen itself is fitted with an excellent range of solid wood wall and base units and in true farmhouse style features an oil fired aga which sits into a tiled recess. Again the kitchen provides room for a further table and chairs if required, ideal for every day dining. The adjoining utility room provides a very useful utility room with base units, sink and good additional storage. The central heating boiler is also located in this room whilst there is access to the rear hall/boot room. Both ground floor bedrooms are spacious double rooms with outlooks to the front of the bungalow. Usefully on the ground floor there is both a shower room and a bathroom, located next to both bedrooms; the main bathroom is tastefully fitted with a four piece suite incorporating a bath and separate shower whilst the shower room is freshly presented with a modern white three piece suite.
The carpeted staircase leads to a particularly spacious first floor landing which is flooded with natural light thanks to the velux windows to both the front and rear. This is an excellent space, very versatile but lending itself ideally to use as a home office/ hobby room with the benefit of good built in storage. Again all three bedrooms at this level are bright and airy with large picture windows and some with velux’s also which ensure lovely open outlooks. Usefully two of the bedrooms benefit from built in storage but all have ample space to house a range of free standing furniture also. The shower room at this level is centrally positioned and surprisingly well proportioned, fitted with a three piece suite.
The gardens which immediately surround the property are very well tended and incorporate a neat lawned area with colourful planted beds and borders. The hedged surround ensures good privacy with a trellised fence allowing access to the rear of the garden and in turn the paddocks beyond.
The paddocks extend beyond the garden grounds and are fully fenced, ideal for horses or other livestock. To the side there is timber stable block incorporating two lose boxes with an adjoining tack room/store room. Both the stables and the tack room benefit from light and power.
