Set in the heart of Innerleithen, with views of its scenic surrounding hills, this expansive three-bedroom upper villa enjoys local amenities and beautiful countryside right on its doorstep. Occupying the first floor of a Victorian corner terrace, with a unique curved frontage, the light and airy accommodation is lit by large picture windows throughout and characterised by generous room sizes, characterful features and attractive modern interiors. Access to a sunny shared garden and excellent private parking is also provided.
Approached via a rear communal courtyard, the villa opens into a ground floor vestibule housing cupboard storage and a well-lit sweeping staircase to the first floor. Here, the spacious entrance hall conveys a welcoming impression with neutral décor warmly accompanied by stripped pine doors and flooring. The area allows ample space for freestanding furniture and includes a deep store cupboard. Immediately in front of you lies the impressive 23ft2 living room illuminated by double windows retaining their authentic panelled surrounds. Pine flooring, intricate ceiling cornicing and an ornate ceiling rose bring further charm to this convivial space, whilst a coal-effect fire sits within an elegant contemporary surround offset by chic accent wallpaper. Across the hall a large, bright dining kitchen awaits. Incorporating a seated dining area, the kitchen represents a wonderfully sociable hub for gathering as a family or with guests. Exceptionally well-appointed, the room is fitted with a comprehensive array of stylish wood-styled cabinets, plentiful workspace and neatly integrated goods comprising an eye-level double oven, a sleek electric hob and a dishwasher. An original recessed shelving area for display items and space for a tall freestanding fridge freezer are also featured, whilst plumbing for laundry appliances can be found in the ground floor storage area. The villa’s three attractively-decorated bedrooms include two double rooms (adorned with classic cornicing) and a single bedroom. The remarkably generous master bedroom is further supplemented by decorative accent wallpaper and twin deep-set windows. Finally, a spacious and sunny bathroom (with built-in linen and vanity storage) is fashioned in a sympathetically traditional style. Set against crisp aqua-toned walls and characterful wainscoting, and enjoying atmospheric integrated lighting, the room comes replete with a WC, a pedestal basin, a bathtub and a separate walk-in shower enclosure. The property benefits from efficient gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
Externally, the villa benefits from shared access to a southerly-facing lawned rear garden and an exclusively-owned driveway providing off-street parking for up to three vehicles.
