A True Rural Idyll. Along a tree lined avenue on the former Edrington House Estate and tucked away behind imposing timber gates, The Garden Cottage offers a true escape from the outside world. This impressive stone-built detached country home with attached barn sits in completely private garden and grounds, surrounded by mature trees and open fields, extending to approximately three-quarters of an acre. This charming characterful abode offers a new owner the chance to have a self-sufficient good life, with land to plant fruit and vegetables and to keep livestock. There is also the potential to create further living accommodation on the existing first-floor of the house and to develop the attached barn, subject to planning. Accommodation comprises: Ground Floor: Entrance Hall, Drawing Room, Sitting Room, Farmhouse Kitchen, Utility Room, Study/Bedroom Three. First Floor: Landing, Two Double Bedrooms, Contemporary Bathroom, Part-Developed Master Bedroom and En-Suite. Outside: Gated Entrance with Gravel Driveway, Off-Street Parking, Generous Landscaped Gardens and Grounds, Paddock Area with Greenhouse and Pigsty, Drying Green, Countryside Views. The Garden Cottage originally served as the coach house for the Edrington House Estate throughout the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth century, remnants of which still exist in the barn and former stables. Stone built under a slate roof, this character property blends beautifully into leafy surroundings and offers a real haven, away form the hustle and bustle of modern life. Although only a short distance from the village of Foulden and Berwick-upon-Tweed to the east, once in the grounds you have the feeling of complete calm with only birdsong to be heard amongst the mature trees, plants and shrubs. The property is beautifully presented throughout with stylish décor and the current owners have recently had new windows and doors installed and a stunning contemporary bathroom. The Garden Cottage is found at the end of a long tree-lined avenue in a peaceful corner of the former Edrington House Estate and benefits from complete privacy, with no immediate neighbours and lovely views over open fields. There are several walks that emanate from the house, perfect for dog walking or for a stroll on a summers day that take you down to the Whiteadder Water and a delightful country pub in nearby Paxton. Although set in a beautiful rural position, there is a bus stop within walking distance and the historic walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, just over the border in England, is only a short drive away. Berwick has a wide range of amenities and services including local and national retailers, boutique shops, five national supermarkets, doctors and dentists, banks and professional services. Berwick's mainline Railway Station which connects throughout the country and offers access to Edinburgh and Newcastle in about 45 minutes respectively. London Kings Cross is about 3.5 hours away. Within a short drive of The Garden Cottage are a number of well-respected local schools for all ages including Longridge Towers which offers private independent schooling. Beyond the local area are a range of popular attractions including historic castles and villages dotted along the outstandingly beautiful coastline; the renowned Holy Island, the Cheviot Hills and popular market towns of Alnwick and Kelso. Country and sporting pursuits are readily available, including hill walking, salmon and trout fishing, hunting and shooting. Golf is available locally at Duns, Eyemouth and the Hirsel, with swimming, gym, squash and indoor bowling at the Swan Centre in Berwick-upon-Tweed. Distances: Berwick-upon-Tweed 5 miles, Duns 10 miles, Edinburgh 59 miles (all distances are approximate).
