Entrance – A charming introduction
Inside, a vestibule and a reception hall catch the eye, featuring stained-glass glazing and a traditional 1930s staircase (with a red wood balustrade). It is a delightful welcome, aided by the neutral décor and engineered oak flooring (laid in 2016). Ample storage is also provided, including an under-stairs cupboard with shelving.
Reception rooms – Three reception rooms for every occasion
The home has three reception areas to choose from, each maintaining the appealing neutral palette. First, the living room boasts a generous footprint and a magnificent open fireplace with an original surround. This room accommodates an assortment of comfy furnishings and it continues the hall’s engineered oak floor. A built-in cupboard with display shelving and a sweeping bay window with a fitted seat complete the space. The formal dining room has equally impressive dimensions, as well as a bay window and an imposing original fireplace (which can be inset with an electric stove). This delightful reception area is brimming with character too, lined with original red wood panelling for a classic finish. It creates the perfect setting for lively dinner parties. Meanwhile, the south-facing family room is the ideal space for relaxed evenings, in addition to a study that provides a quiet setting for working from home.
Kitchen – A Shaker-inspired kitchen with an on-trend design
The dining kitchen has an expansive footprint that is neatly divided for cooking and entertaining. It has ample floorspace for a family-sized table and chairs, as well as a comfortable sofa. Fitted in 2014, it has a beautiful arrangement too, incorporating Shaker-inspired cabinets in clotted-cream hues and chunky wooden worktops, which are curved for a smooth and streamlined finish. Multi-coloured splashback tiles and undercabinet lighting complete the modern aesthetic, while south-facing windows and a skylight create a wonderfully bright setting for family meals. Furthermore, it has a built-in cupboard (housing the boiler) and French doors extend the space out onto the garden’s patio for summer enjoyment. A gas range cooker and an integrated extractor hood, fridge, and dishwasher are included.
A generous utility room neighbours, providing additional cabinet storage, workspace, and a sink. It also has a traditional clothes-drying pulley, room for further freestanding appliances, and alternative access to the garden.
Bedrooms – Versatile bedrooms to meet your needs
Riverside has five double bedrooms that are bright and airy. The principal bedroom and a guest suite are on the ground floor, with three additional sleeping areas on the first floor that extend off a naturally-lit landing. Decorated with a subtle accent wall, the principal boasts the largest dimensions, as well as a bay window, a built-in wardrobe, and an en-suite bathroom. Likewise, the guest bedroom has generous proportions and an en-suite shower room too. Meanwhile, the upper bedrooms are accompanied by a sizeable store (extending off the bathroom), which has access to further eaves storage (like bedroom four) – perfect for maintaining a neat and tidy home.
All five bedrooms are softly carpeted for comfort and are decorated in elegant neutral hues that enhance a peaceful ambience. Meeting the flexible needs of families, homeowners can also easily increase the numbers of bedrooms by repurposing the family room or study. Similarly, sleeping areas can be used as reception rooms, if desired, allowing you the space and freedom to configure the home to your requirements.
Bathrooms – The ideal setup for families
Avoiding queues and waiting times, the home features four spacious bathrooms. At ground level, there is a family shower room and an en-suite shower room, conveniently attached to the guest suite. In addition, the principal bedroom has the luxury of a modern en-suite bathroom, equipped with an overhead shower and premium tile work around the wet areas. Handily, the first floor is also served by a three-piece family bathroom.
The home is kept warm and cosy by gas central heating. It has a mix of double and secondary-glazed windows, as well as traditional sash windows and art deco-style feature windows with stained glass.
Gardens & Parking – A south-facing garden that captures all-day sun
Neatly maintained and fully enclosed, the home has family and pet-friendly gardens to the front, side, and rear, including established planting and well-kept lawns. The rear garden has a generous swathe of lawn, a patio, and a summerhouse. Plus, it has a secluded area home to a greenhouse, vegetable growing patches, and established strawberry and raspberry bushes. The rear garden also boasts a suntrap, south-facing aspect and direct access to the River Tweed and the Priorsford Bridge crossing. A gated double driveway to the front provides secure off-street parking for two cars.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, fitted window blinds, light fittings, a summerhouse, a gas range cooker, and integrated kitchen appliances to be included in the sale.
