Property

Enviably nestled within unspoilt countryside, just four and a half miles from Peebles, The Old School House represents an outstanding detached rural home. Brimming with character, the versatile accommodation comprises four double bedrooms, three bathrooms and numerous living areas including a spectacular double-height reception area. The idyllic family home also enjoys secluded gardens, with ½ acre of woodland and a stream, and enclosed private parking.

The house is entered via a practical entrance vestibule. Leading off the vestibule is a laundry room, and a hall with cupboard storage and access to a bright shower room. Also reached from the vestibule is the first of the home’s two main living areas: a lofty and spacious kitchen with a sociable seated breakfasting area and large windows capturing breath-taking rural views. The kitchen is well-appointed with classic pine cabinets, including a central island, and durable granite worktops. Integrated into the space are an eye-level double oven, an electric hob with a statement island hood, a fridge freezer and a dishwasher, and a large built-in cupboard for pantry storage. Perfect for everyday family life and entertaining, from the kitchen, French doors open into an impressive double-height reception area with a dual-aspect outlook and double patio doors providing access to a decked terrace. The reception area incorporates space for a dining table and chairs, set beside a sitting area with a homely log burning stove, flanked by useful recessed shelving. Steps from the living room lead to an internal hall with an open office area, and access to a further hall (with external access) leading to a generous multi-purpose reception room, with a bright dual-aspect, and the master suite. This sumptuous master suite comprises a rear-facing bedroom, a walk-in wardrobe with fitted storage, and a deluxe contemporary en-suite bathroom. The bathroom comes replete with dual basins, a shower enclosure, a bathtub, and a conveniently separate WC. The master bedroom also offers external access making it ideal as a guest suite or accommodation for live-in relatives. The home’s remaining three double bedrooms all enjoy generous proportions and are located on the first floor, reached via an airy galleried landing, and served by a three-piece family bathroom. The property benefits from oil-fired central heating, double glazing, a private water supply, and a septic tank.

Externally, the home is hugged by front, rear and side gardens. The exceptionally private rear garden is pleasantly sheltered by woodland and features lawned and terraced areas, a vegetable plot, fruit trees, a wildlife garden, and a greenhouse. An enclosed, gated driveway provides outstanding private parking and houses a two-vehicle carport, and three large watertight sheds, all with electric light and power.

Peebles, Scottish Borders

Set on the picturesque River Tweed, the town of Peebles offers an outstanding lifestyle – within an easy commute of Edinburgh, with highly regarded schools and surrounded by unspoilt Borders countryside. The historic market town has retained an increasingly rare and unspoilt ambience, and has become something of a destination for shopping, arts, and culture. The quaint town centre boasts a wide range of independent shops and business, which are supplemented with a select few high-street stores and supermarkets. There is no shortage of everyday essentials, including banks, pharmacies, and a post office, plus a choice of restaurants, bars and cafés frequented by locals and visitors alike. Peebles also hosts a varied programme of cultural events and attractions all year round, with the main venue being the Eastgate Theatre & Arts Centre. Owing to its breath-taking setting in the Tweed Valley, Peebles promises a rich outdoor lifestyle and a plethora of country sports and activities: from salmon fishing and riverside walks along the Tweed, to hiking, cycling and horse riding in the surrounding hills. Popular with families, Peebles is served by three primary schools and a high school, and is also well-placed for excellent private childcare and independent schooling options. Peebles is just over twenty miles from Edinburgh and thus represents an attractive location for those looking to escape to the country. Commuters are just thirty minutes’ drive from Edinburgh City Bypass, which in turn allows easy access to other major road networks, Edinburgh Airport and the Forth Road Bridge.
