Garden Cottage Tweeddale Avenue
Offers Over: £495,000
Gifford is high on the list for anyone wanting the best of country living within reach of services, hills, coast and capital. Combine this with a choice of two houses. The first old and characterful, with a fine pedigree. The second brand new, in fact not even built yet. A tranquil building plot within a large walled garden out of the line of site from the Cottage.
Sympathetically converted, red sandstone former coach house.
Built by the Hays of Yester, the cottage and garden originally formed the coach house, stables and kitchen garden to the late eighteenth century Forbes Lodge next door.
The original stone arches for the coach house were re-exposed by present owners and the original residential front door moved from the top of the external steps to the ground level. They sought to sympathetically retain the beautiful, warm red sandstone features and make the most of the southerly aspect. Completed by the large, sun-trap patio and equally significant lean-to greenhouse, not for nothing is it called Garden Cottage.
This is a house well-suited for family living: two sitting rooms and a great big central kitchen with large picture windows to the garden.
There is a place for quiet study, bedrooms on both floors and plenty of room for play. Storage is not an issue - more of a feature in fact, with outbuildings and room to expand depending on need.
Adjoining garden plot with planning permission for 3 bedroom house also available. Please get in touch to discuss.
