McEwan Fraser Legal is delighted to present this remarkable property which combines the rustic charm of a quality finished country cottage and the modern comfort of a home with all modern conveniences. The charm is evident as you approach the covered external staircase from the parking area where two designated parking spaces come with the property. At the top of the tiled staircase there is a door to the external utility room. This has a tiled floor with plenty of worksurface, ample room for washing machine and a tranquil work/hobby area.
Across the landing to the new double-glazed main door of the property we are welcomed by quality solid oak flooring which has a warm feel to it and extends throughout the majority of the accommodation. This long hallway boasts two large storage cupboards with an access hatch to the enormous attic area, which comprises a partially floored and insulated storage area covering the property's whole area.
The lounge is spacious and benefits from a recently refurbished log burner set within a magnificent wooden beamed fireplace reputed to have been taken from one of the ancient trees felled to make way for the property. The rustic romantic feel continues with the recessed log storage area and has size and dimensions to accommodate various furniture configurations and the two large windows let in lots of natural light.
The showpiece kitchen is everything you would expect from such a well finished rural property from the quality grey flooring to the acres of black granite worksurface with stunning tiled splashback, and quality lighting. The gas hob, electric oven and black cooker hood together with integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer easily make this a wonderful setting for any aspiring chef to prepare a tasty meal. The highlight of this room however awaits you through the double doors to the wonderful decked and walled terrace where external lights will allow you to enjoy and evening of food and drinks with friends in a quiet and idyllic setting.
The very modern and comfortable bathroom is somehow in keeping with this wonderful property's charm, from the warm brown tiled floor with cream and brown wall tiles to the large bath with side mounted taps and the modern white suite and chrome towel rail. Further enhanced with brown wood effect cabinets and worksurface, the jewel in this crown however, is the stunning large tiled modern shower cabinet with gravity fed shower.
The two bedrooms are large and airy, finished in tasteful decoration with ample space for free standing furniture. While the second bedroom boasts a full wall of upmarket wood and glass sliding door wardrobes, the master benefits from a wardrobe recess and walk-in cupboard and a recently upgraded en-suite with modern white suite, tiled floor and the wet wall behind a very modern corner curved shower cabinet with a new Mira electric shower.
