Promising an exceptional contemporary country home in breath-taking riverside surroundings, The Oak House lies in the small village of Tweedsmuir, within easy reach of major road links, and offers a luxurious detached family home with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, an impressive open-plan living area, plus substantial idyllic gardens, a driveway and an integral single garage. Behind its charming stone and timber-clad barn-style exterior, the home is impeccably presented with muted interiors enhanced by the warm tones of abundant exposed oak beams, framework and window surrounds.

On opening the front door, you are greeted by a double-height hallway which instantly impresses; showcasing the home’s wonderfully airy ambience and high-end, characterful finish with crisp white décor, exposed beams and hardwood flooring. The hall leads openly into the expansive living/dining area providing an inviting flow into the property. With wall-to-wall windows to two sides, perfectly framing spectacular country views, the reception area is similarly styled, visually divided by a central chimney breast, housing a rustic log-burning stove, to create dedicated generous spaces for relaxation and seated dining. The vast vaulted living area is further heightened by a triple aspect, a floor-to-ceiling feature window and a multitude of skylights, in addition to direct access onto an expansive veranda – the ideal spot for relaxing whilst taking in the home’s picturesque open outlook. Completing this wonderfully sociable space, perfectly designed for everyday family living and entertaining, the reception area openly adjoins the kitchen featuring French doors with access to a decked dining terrace and the garden beyond. Flooded with light from large skylights and floor-length windows, the kitchen has been sympathetically appointed with modern wood-styled cabinetry accompanied by durable glass worktops, an integrated dishwasher and a Rangemaster cooker with an integrated feature hood, and space for a large freestanding fridge freezer. Reached via the hall, and, also, handily the garage, is a utility room representing a discreet space for laundry appliances. Also located on the ground floor are a family bathroom and two of the four double bedrooms on offer; a superbly generous master bedroom benefiting from a sunny triple-aspect outlook, and a further double bedroom with a fitted wardrobe. Both bedrooms feature delightful exposed beams, whilst the deluxe fully-tiled bathroom comes replete with a WC, a countertop basin with vanity storage, a walk-in shower enclosure and a bathtub.

On the first floor, reached via an oak staircase, is a light and airy galleried landing with storage and ample space for furniture items and a seating area. The landing leads to the two remaining double bedrooms (one with a favourable south-facing aspect) served by a shower room presented in a coordinating fashion to the ground floor bathroom. Both cosily nestled into the eaves, yet offering plentiful space for furniture, the two bedrooms are supplemented by further characterful exposed beams, enchanting feature windows and access to eaves storage. The sky-lit shower room includes a WC, twin counter-top basins with vanity storage, and a walk-in shower enclosure. The property benefits from gas-fired underfloor heating and double glazing throughout.

Outside, the house sits within secluded wraparound gardens giving way to tranquil open countryside. The substantial grounds include manicured lawns, a pond and, located directly outside the property, a decked dining terrace and veranda. Private parking for multiple vehicles is provided with a large gravelled driveway leading to an integral single garage, set behind handsome barn-style doors.

Extras: All fitted floor coverings, blinds, integrated cooker and dishwasher are included in the sale. Fridge freezer available by separate negotiation.

Tweedsmuir

The small village of Tweedsmuir lies nestled in a valley within the breath-taking Scottish Borders’ countryside, with magnificent rolling hills and burns on both sides – an outstanding setting for outdoor pursuits and notably home to ancient stones and religious sites. The village lies just 16 miles from the charming country town of Peebles and close to major roads for commuting further afield. Recognised as the ‘Top Independent Retailing Town in Scotland’, Peebles is home to a wealth of independent shops, in addition to supermarkets, including a Tesco superstore, banks, and a post office. High-end eateries, bars and cafés, as well as the Eastgate Theatre & Arts Centre are located in Peebles, with the town enjoying several annual festivals, including the Beltane Festival, the Peebles Jazz Festival and the renowned Arts Festival. Tweedsmuir itself also hosts the family friendly Tweedsmuir Music Festival once a year. A range of schools at state and primary level are available in the immediate surrounding area.
