Situated in the sought-after Peebles conservation area, Priorsford Cottage is a beautiful C-listed, semi-detached house built in the late nineteenth century with attractive period architecture and features, offering four double bedrooms, three reception areas, and two bathrooms. The pretty courtyard to the back is very private with flagstones and a stunning old brick perimeter wall. Private parking for two cars backs on to the courtyard, beyond the garden gate. This Victorian property further boasts immaculate interiors, with neutral décor throughout and high-spec fixtures and fittings.
A beautifully presented, Victorian whinstone semi-detached house, Priorsford Cottage is situated in a historic, untouched part of Peebles, surrounded by houses of similar vintage; private yet within a five minute walk to the hustle and bustle of busy Peebles high street. The Period exterior opens into the impressive accommodation -- clean lines, calming tones, tastefully decorated. From the front garden, the entrance vestibule leads into the spacious, well proportioned hall with walk-in cupboards and, at the far end, a good sized shower room with WC and sink. Solid pine floorboards extend throughout the ground floor and there are double glazed sash and case windows and velux skylights upstairs and down. From the entrance, the large sitting room is found to the right, with a traditional fireplace and open Edinburgh press. To the left, on entry, is another good sized flexible space which can be used as a bedroom, study, music room, or anything else your busy lifestyle or working from home demands. The heart of the home -- the bright, high spec, open plan dining kitchen -- leads off the far end of the hall, complete with sliding french doors to the courtyard, seated island, walnut-style cabinetry, solid black granite worktops, American-style fridge-freezer, integrated appliances: ceramic hob, eye-level oven, warming oven, fridge freezer and dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a well-appointed utility room with Worcester Bosch boiler (washer and a condenser dryer included) and external door to the courtyard behind. Opening off the kitchen is a snug or cosy family room with windows to the front and sliding French doors onto the rear of the property with a clear view of the full length of the pretty courtyard beyond. Also included in the sale is the rustic 8 seater circular garden table, large garden shed and lockable bike store. There’s off road parking for two cars, at the bottom of the property of Priorsford Cottage, with direct entry to the courtyard and house beyond.
Inside, from the hall, the chunky staircase turns up to the right, leading to the first floor. Up in the eaves of the house, three generous double bedrooms with quirky coombed ceilings and carpeted flooring are warm, light, and airy. A deep walk-in cupboard in the hall provides valuable extra storage. The family bathroom upstairs is large and complete with a luxury whirlpool bath.
Priorsford Cottage is an interesting property combining traditional values with contemporary living.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, an American-style fridge-freezer, washer, and dryer to be included in the sale. A rustic 8-seater garden table is also included.
