‘Keepers Cottage’ is a truly attractive three bedroom contemporary house cleverly finished in traditional style. The property enjoys an excellent position on the edge of the village of Wark which lies just over the Border on the south bank of the river a few miles upstream from the nearby village of Cornhill- on- Tweed. The property benefits from an extensive drive, an attractive frontage, open outlooks and easily maintained landscaped gardens which surround the property. The accommodation has been thoughtfully planned and benefits from dual aspect windows to the front and rear which also helps to enhance the natural light and feeling of space.
The village of Wark is situated in North Northumberland close to the Scottish Border, on the banks of the River Tweed. Some two miles north of Cornhill on Tweed, Wark was part of the much fought over “debatable lands” disputed territory before the Border was settled with nearby Wark Castle giving an indication of the part it had to play in Borders history. Delightful river walks abound with the nearby Tweed famous for its superb salmon fishing. The charming town of Kelso is just over the Border some seven miles west with Berwick upon Tweed 14 miles east providing excellent shopping facilities, road and rail links.

An extensive tarmac driveway to the front of the property and the double garage, provide ample private parking. The driveway is flanked by a neat area of lawn and landscaped garden. Steps lead to a canopied central entrance door with pillars to either side.
The entrance hall ensures a lovely warm welcome with carpeted staircase extending to the upper floor and an interesting feature provided by the front facing ‘porthole’ style window. Double doors from the hall open into the lounge which is a beautifully presented room, flooded with natural light thanks to the dual aspect incorporating double doors opening onto a sheltered patio at the rear. A tasteful feature wall houses a contemporary log burning stove which is set onto a slate hearth with solid oak mantle over. To the far side of the hallway is the dining kitchen which is fitted with a good range of cream fronted Shaker style units with beech block worktops and mosaic tiled splash back. The kitchen area lies towards the rear of the room with window overlooking the garden whilst to the front there is ample space for dining with a further window enjoying lovely outlooks over the open countryside opposite. A rear hall extends off the kitchen to the utility room which is also fitted with a range of base units with space and plumbing for additional appliances. A door from the utility allows access to the integral garage whilst also giving access to the adjoining cloakroom which is fitted with a WC and pedestal sink.
A painted exposed timber staircase leads to a half landing window overlooking the delightful rear patio and stairs continuing up to the upper landing with spindled balustrade. The master bedroom is a particularly bright and airy double room, with windows to the rear overlooking the garden as well as dormer windows to the front with views over beautiful surrounding countryside. The master bedroom benefits from a freshly presented en-suite shower which is fully tiled and comprises a recessed shower cubicle, WC and pedestal wash hand basin. Bedrooms two and three are both further double rooms, one enjoying an open aspect to the front whilst the other overlooks the rear garden. The family bathroom comprises a white three price suite with shower over the bath and velux window to the front.
A paved patio lies along the rear of the property providing an extremely pleasant and sheltered spot to sit throughout the summer months, with paved paths round either side and a landscaped rockery to rear beyond providing a high degree of colour and interest. There is the added luxury of a hot tub which is available by negotiation or could be removed by the seller.
