The home enjoys a picturesque position in Peebles next to the River Tweed and within easy reach of the town’s amenities, transport links, and surrounding countryside.
Entrance – An inviting introduction to Priorsford House
A practical entrance porch (with beautiful floor tiles) welcomes you into the home, offering space for coat and shoe storage and leading through to a reception hall. Both entrance areas set the tone for the interiors to follow, with the hall enjoying neutral décor and a fitted carpet.
Reception rooms – Elegantly designed rooms for family life
The living room and family room are exceptionally impressive, bay-fronted rooms, offering generous floorspaces for configurations of furniture, and filled with stunning period features. The living room is enviably south-facing, with its bay window framing lovely leafy garden views and featuring working shutters. It also has a striking fireplace and a showstopping coffered ceiling, and is directly connected to the neighbouring kitchen. The dual-aspect, light-filled family room also enjoys tranquil garden views and is presented with soft grey décor, exquisite cornicing, and a beautiful fireplace. The bay window (also with working shutters) is currently being utilised as a home office area, ideal for those requiring a quiet space to work or study from home.
Dining kitchen – A dream space for entertainers and home cooks
Perfectly designed for family life and entertaining alike, and sympathetically styled to blend with the traditional main house, the breakfasting kitchen and dining room is sure to be the sociable heart of this wonderful home. A wealth of floor-to-ceiling glazing captures natural light throughout the day and frames views of the surrounding gardens, whilst timeless, high-quality cabinetry is accompanied by quartz worktops and windowsills, a ceramic sink, and a Range-style cooker with an induction hob, an integrated dishwasher, and space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. A central island offers a breakfast bar with seating for three, catering for morning coffee, busy weekday breakfasts, and socialising while cooking, whilst the large adjoining space offers plenty of room for a dining table and chairs, and a lounge setup if desired.
A short flight of stairs leads from here, down into a large utility room (with external access), ideally proportioned and designed for family life with space for laundry appliances, a useful shower area for washing muddy paws after walks, a clothes pulley, and excellent storage space.
Bedrooms – Tranquil sleeping areas for a peaceful night’s rest
The house offers four bedrooms – three on the first floor and one on a split-level. All four bedrooms boast their own unique, contemporary styling and fitted carpets for optimum comfort underfoot. The principal bedroom features an alcove that lends itself perfectly to a dressing area, with a fitted shelf, whilst the second largest room has a characterful fireplace surround and an open storage alcove. The third bedroom has under-window shelved storage, whilst the final sleeping area is sure to be hit with children as it boasts a fantastic wall-set raised bed, perfectly designed to make the best use of the space on offer, whilst also enjoying fitted storage and shelving. A versatile room can also be found on the first floor, which is currently being used as a children’s play room.
Bathrooms – Beautifully designed, functional washrooms
The elegantly styled family bathroom comprises a bathtub with an overhead shower and eye-catching tiling, a basin atop a storage unit, and a WC. The separate shower room is equally tastefully styled with sophisticated tiling and décor, and comes complete with a large shower enclosure, and a traditionally styled WC-suite.
Gas central heating (powered by a Worcester boiler) ensures year-round comfort and efficiency, whilst the windows are a combination of UPVC and aluminium double glazing, and traditional sash-and-case.
The house also has a large basement with excellent storage space.
Gardens and parking – Generous outdoors space and outstanding parking
Externally, the house is perfectly complemented by generous garden grounds, featuring large, well-maintained lawns, a wealth of leafy trees and mature shrubbery, patios for outdoor seating and summer barbecuing, a summerhouse, and a shed. Outstanding private parking for multiple vehicles is provided by a detached single garage and a large driveway.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, integrated kitchen appliances, cooker, utility room storage, and fitted living room TV unit/bookshelf will be included in the sale. Some of the light fittings may be available by separate negotiation.
