CONVERTED COACH HOUSE WITH EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES. The Coach House is set within private grounds of around 7 acres within the desirable rural hamlet of Glenormiston, situated just 2 miles north of Innerleithen and 4 miles south of Peebles. Thoughtfully renovated by the current owners into an exceptional and unique family home benefiting from modern day luxuries whilst retaining many original features. The open-plan living accommodation is the epitome of light and space. At the heart of the home is a multi-functional double height room, with galleried landing at first floor level. This living space currently serves as a lounge, dining area and houses the high gloss black and cream Cuccina fitted kitchen with island unit, full stave walnut worktop, integrated Siemens appliances including; dishwasher, fridge freezer, cooker, steamer and bean to cup coffee machine, and spacious pantry off. Velux windows provide lots of natural light, and floor to ceiling window frame views of the cobbled courtyard and surrounding grounds. Wood burning stoves in three of the main living areas offer a warm ambience and focal point, plus a practical and economical secondary heat source and back up for hot water and cooking. Brazilian grey slate covers the whole of the ground floor which also has the benefit of underfloor heating. On the first floor a superb, spacious master bedroom with dressing area, including a range of fitted wardrobes, en-suite bathroom with double aspect, separate walk-in shower and free standing bath are of particular note. This bedroom can be accessed via a spiral wrought iron staircase from the utility room, or via the hallway at first floor level. The main staircase is finished in oak and is located at the opposite end of the house, leading up to the galleried landing which has a glass balustrade, oak flooring, and provides a further versatile living area. The property is finished to a high specification, offers an exemplary fusion of traditional and contemporary design with scope for further extension / renovation (subject to consents). The layout also lends itself well to the possibilities of sub-dividing, or for use as a holiday let.
On entry to the property a tarmac driveway leads to the Coach House with traditional cobbled courtyard and gravelled parking area. A pair of impressive, original coach house doors open into a large integrated garage and workshop. A beautiful parkland setting garden of around 1 acre offers exquisite views towards the Tweed Valley.
