Formerly the village schoolhouse and, more recently, a popular guest house, the original stone built dwelling dates back to 1690 and was extended in the late 1990s to provide an incredibly versatile home to suit a range of requirements. With the ground floor hosting a large open plan living, dining and lounge area with connecting kitchen, this bright space allows for family life and plenty of entertaining space, with a further public room provided by a bright garden room. An excellent appointment of storage including a separate utility room, as well two ensuite ground level bedrooms and an office are also positioned at ground level and would lend equally well as work spaces or for multi-generational living.
For those in search of a forever home, the schoolhouse successfully blends the period elements with a contemporary extension and provides for both modern living and future proofing elements with the accommodation all accessible at one level, or indeed for those looking to host visiting family and guests, with a further two ensuite bedrooms positioned on the upper level.
Externally, the property includes a garden frontage with private parking for several cars, a sheltered patio and neat paving accessing the accommodation. A further section of ground to the rear with decking and lawn also belongs to the property.
The property sits in a stunning rural position off the A701, approx 3 miles south from the village of Broughton and connecting to Biggar in 20 minutes via the B7016.
