Situated in the sought-after Peebles conservation area, Strathnaver is a beautiful, traditional whinstone detached house, built in the late nineteenth century with attractive period features, on a generous corner plot, offering four double bedrooms, a double height, bright and airy living/dining room (Sun Room), two large gardens, and private parking. This Victorian property further boasts unique architectural details and neutral decor creating a charming family home in a desirable location.

A beautifully presented, Victorian whinstone detached house, Strathnaver is situated in a historic untouched part of Peebles; private, yet within a five minute walk to the hustle and bustle of busy Peebles High Street. Through the latched gate and beyond the pretty front garden, the period exterior opens into the vestibule with its leaded/stained glass door. Enter the impressive hallway, with its pitch pine staircase sweeping up to the first floor. Stripped and sealed solid pine floor boards extend throughout the hall, kitchen, living room, and downstairs shower room. The property is double glazed throughout with wooden sash & case windows in the style of the period. There is under-stair storage and upstairs, further walk-in cupboards, as well as storage under the eaves.

From the entrance, the large bedroom to the right with plain plaster cornice, picture rail, and wooden fireplace, is ‘en-suite’ with shower, WC, sink, heated towel rail, window facing the back garden, and warming/linen cupboard with Worcester-Bosch gas boiler. To the left from the entrance is another substantial room with bay window, plain cornice, picture rails, and marble fireplace which can be used as a master bedroom, reception room, study, music room or anything else your busy lifestyle or working from home demands.  From here, walk through to a good sized internal space - an annex of the main room or a room in its own right - also accessed from the Sun Room. Extended in the 1980s, the impressive Sun Room was created at the back, with its double height vaulted, beamed ceiling, double aspect on the garden - directly accessed through French Doors. Ample room for both lounge furniture and a big family dining table, the original external solid whinstone wall of the house is now a magnificent feature of this room. The dual-aspect kitchen, accessed from both the hall and the Sun Room is conveniently adjacent and houses light blue cabinetry, chunky wooden worktops, and on-trend metro splashback tiles. Integrated appliances finish off the attractive look (gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, and washing machine, and large free standing fridge-freezer,). 

From the hall, ascend the sweeping staircase, past the decorative period window with stained glass panels to the upper floor landing with loft access.  Up in the eaves of the house, two generous double bedrooms with quirky coombed ceilings and carpeted flooring are warm, light, and airy.  The bright three-piece family bathroom, and sky-light to the front, completes the accommodation. 

Outside, the substantial rear garden enjoys excellent privacy, with a large lawn, planting beds, a delightful pond, a shed/workshop with electricity, a lockable store, and a greenhouse, as well as a patio with a pergola for summer dining. Planted in the style of a cottage garden, it really comes into its own in the spring and summer with its many species of flowers, specimen trees, shrubs, and lots of secret paths and hidden quiet spots for relaxing with a good book. The gated driveway to the side of the property provides secure, off-street parking for at least two cars.

Strathnaver is an interesting property combining traditional period features with flexible contemporary living.

Extras: all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, fridge-freezer, a shed, and a greenhouse to be included in the sale.
