‘West End Cottage’ is superb and truly deceptive property which, from first impressions may be rather unassuming but opens up to the rear into a lovely bright and airy two storey extension which makes the most of the fabulous outlooks over the south facing gardens. Enjoying a lovely spot within this popular and established Berwickshire village the accommodation is immaculately presented and offers an excellent blend of traditional and modern styling with features including an impressive inglenook fireplace in the lounge, not to mention the large family dining kitchen to the rear which really is the hub of the home.
The garden grounds are a real delight; due to the south facing aspect they enjoy sun throughout the day and the established borders and boundary ensure excellent privacy. A large paved patio extends off the double doors from the kitchen and provides a sheltered, alfresco dining area with lawned garden extending beyond. A gated access to the side leads onto the private area of parking with space for two or three vehicles and with the detached garage lying beyond.

A neat area of pebbled garden lies to the front of the property with a traditional entrance door opening into a spacious and particularly bright entrance hall with spindles staircase extending to the upper floor. Frosted, glazed double doors open off the entrance hall into the impressive and traditionally presented living room which features windows to both the front and the rear. The main focal point of this room is provided by the magnificent inglenook fireplace which houses a log burning stove which is set onto a tiled hearth. The dining room extends off the living room and again benefits from dual aspect windows. This room provides ample space for a formal dining table or could equally well be utilised as a peaceful home office if preferred. The rear extension incorporates the modern family dining kitchen which is the real hub of the home and provides space for a further table and chairs, sofas or such like if desired. This room is flooded with natural light thanks to the glazed, double doors to the garden with glazed upper and side panels in addition to further side windows. The kitchen itself is fitted with an excellent range of modern wall and base units with ample worktop space and tiled splash backs. The useful utility room is conveniently located off the kitchen. Usefully on the ground floor there is both a bathroom and shower room, both of which are freshly presented with modern white suites. Three out of the four bedrooms are also located on the ground floor; all nicely proportioned double rooms with either built in storage or room for free standing furniture. The main bedroom also enjoys a peaceful aspect over the garden to the rear.
The spindled staircase leads to the first floor landing with built in storage. The upstairs bedroom features four large windows overlooking the garden with an open outlook to the south beyond. This room is also a well proportioned double with plenty of natural light.
A lovely paved patio extends from the double doors off the kitchen and provides a lovely sheltered seating area, ideal for summer dining. Steps then lead up on to the main area of lawned garden which benefits from established borders and boundaries incorporating a selection of tree and shrubs. A fenced area to the rear of the shed houses the oil tank and provides a useful storage area for logs etc. Gated access from the patio area leads to the gravelled parking area to the side of the cottage.
