Castlelaw Steading, Dolphinton Road, West Linton, Scottish Borders, EH46 7AA

Boasting four/five bedrooms, two bathrooms, several living areas and a sociable, family-friendly layout, plus exceptional garden grounds extending to approximately 2 acres, a self-contained chalet, a studio, a detached single garage, and a large driveway, this detached house was built in 1984 to complement a charming former steading (which the garage, studios and courtyard were converted from) and enjoys a desirable rural setting just outside West Linton, which is a 10-minute walk away via a footpath with stiles across adjacent fields.

A sweeping driveway leads up to the property, where the front door opens into a vestibule with handy built-in storage, leading through to a hall with additional storage and a WC. On your right, two reception rooms sit side by side: a living room and a family room. The sunny, triple-aspect living room is located to the rear of the property and offers flexibility for various furniture layouts, with charming fireplace and brick surround as a focal point. Patio doors open onto the garden, extending this sociable space outdoors during the warmer months! The family room also offers plenty of space for furniture. Across the hall, an open-plan kitchen and dining room awaits. The dining area features a delightful exposed beam detail and promises plenty of room for a large table and chairs, whilst the adjoining kitchen is fitted with wall and base cabinets framed by ample workspace and neutral splashback tiling. Space is also provided for a selection of freestanding and undercounter appliances. An adjoining utility room (with external access) features further fitted cabinetry, a large storage cupboard, and space for additional appliances.

On the first floor, a landing with storage leads to four bedrooms, a study, and a family bathroom. The spacious, dual-aspect master bedroom enjoys lovely leafy views and has the luxury of its own en-suite shower room, as well as a built-in wardrobe, while the remaining sleeping areas are also supplemented by built-in wardrobes. The study offers a perfect peaceful setting for those working from home and could alternatively be used as a single bedroom. The bathroom comprises a bath with an overhead shower, a pedestal basin, and a WC. The home is heated by an oil-fired central heating system and benefits from double-glazed windows throughout.

Externally, the home’s delightful gardens extend to an impressive approximate 2 acres, and consist of large lawned areas, a wealth of leafy trees, shrubs, and planting areas, and a large patio for alfresco dining furniture. A real unique feature of the garden is a set of 39 steps leading down to the tranquil burn Westwater Burn which runs through the bottom of the garden and backs onto secluded farmland. The garden is also home to a three-room chalet with power, a spring water supply, a lounge with a wood-burner, and a kitchen. To the front of the house, a large studio (with power and a mains water supply) is attached to a delightful walled courtyard, and excellent private parking is provided by a generous driveway and a detached single garage.

Extras: All fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, and white goods to be included in the sale. The shelving units from the family room and the study can also be included if desired.
