Stuart & Stuart are proud to present this three-bedroom detached bungalow set in extensive garden grounds and with magnificent open views to Borthwick Castle. Offering an immaculate family home in the rural hamlet of Borthwick.
With all the convenience of single-storey living, the accommodation extends some 185 sq. metres and comprises three double bedrooms, three reception rooms, two bathrooms and an impressive dining kitchen. The plot extends to a third of an acre and is supplemented with a further plot of agricultural land (approximately 0.25 acres) directly in front. Its expansive garden grounds are beautifully landscaped and intersected by a man-made burn, and feature a greenhouse, a summerhouse, three garden sheds and a treehouse.
Furthermore, the integral double garage and generous driveway allow private parking for at least twelve vehicles. Borthwick Dene boasts an elevated setting just north of the hamlet, across Gore Water (Borthwick Burn), and yields scenic views to 15th-century Borthwick Castle, which is just 200 metres away. Approached along a single-track road flanked by green fields, an original dry-stone dyke and traditional timber gates mark the entrance to the property. The driveway leads through mature gardens to a large parking area and an integral double garage to the rear of the property, and from here the main entrance opens into the impressive dining kitchen.
With dual-aspect windows to the east and west, the space is lined with contemporary gloss-white cabinetry and granite-effect worktops, which house an electric Rangemaster cooker with a coordinating cooker hood, an American-style fridge freezer and a dishwasher. The dining kitchen continues into a versatile family room, which is floored in solid mahogany and would lend itself to endless configurations to suit. The family room flows into an elegant dining area, which boasts patio doors onto a west facing terrace/barbecue area and enjoys a ‘broken-plan’ layout to the living room. The dual-aspect living room is flooded with light from dual-aspect windows to the south and west, which frame picture-perfect views of the pastoral setting. The living room offers flexible floor space for comfortable seating around an inviting open fireplace, which is equipped with a Baxi back boiler system and leads back into the hall.
The spacious hall affords access to the third reception room – a triple-aspect conservatory with breathtaking views to Borthwick Castle – and to three double bedrooms. The master bedroom features a built-in dressing table and matching wardrobes, as well as an en-suite shower room. Completing the accommodation is a four-piece family bathroom, complete with a luxurious walk-in shower and a bathtub. The property is heated by an oil-fired central heating system and the aforementioned Baxi back-boiler, and benefits from double-glazed windows throughout.
