Enjoying a breathtaking clifftop setting with panoramic sea views, this remarkable detached family home enjoys three to six bedrooms, three bathrooms, multiple reception areas, expansive gardens, a private driveway and an attached double garage.
Positioned on a clifftop close to the charming village of Cockburnspath, The Ramparts promises a spectacular coastal setting and has been built to enjoy uninterrupted sea views through much of the property. With a characterful exterior and a tremendous footprint, this three to six-bedroom detached family home offers versatile accommodation incorporating numerous living areas, whilst the impeccable muted interiors are supplemented by rich wood finishes and elegant decorative accents.
Nestled towards the end of a tranquil country lane, within a small residential community, the house sits behind a south-facing garden, laid to lawn. Welcoming you into the home is a bright and spacious hall housing useful storage and a convenient WC. Located to the rear of the property, thereby benefiting from its magnificent coastal vista, is a dual-aspect living room flanked by a formal dining room (which would serve equally well as a fourth double bedroom) and a kitchen, with a free-flowing arrangement designed for sociable family living. From the living room, French doors open onto an elevated decked terrace – a lovely spot for al fresco dining and entertaining whilst enjoying the views.
Arranged around a central island with a congenial breakfast bar, the generous dual-aspect kitchen is fitted in a timeless, country kitchen style with ivory-white panelled cabinetry paired with integrated downlighting, timber worktops and a full complement of neatly-integrated appliances. An adjoining utility room accommodates handy garden and garage access, and space for white goods. Also located on the ground-floor is a home office/bedroom 5, a sizable family bathroom, featuring a shower enclosure and a bathtub, and one of the three double bedrooms on offer. This spacious bedroom comes complete with a fitted wardrobe and a bright en-suite shower room.
Upstairs, a landing (with storage) accommodates three wonderfully bright multi-aspect rooms; an impressive master suite, a further double bedroom with wall-to-wall fitted wardrobes, and a vast family room. Offering an inviting sitting area with French doors accessing a sea-facing balcony, the family room could be adapted to an additional double bedroom. Both upstairs bedrooms are extended by dormer windows, whilst the master bedroom is further enhanced by outstanding fitted storage and an opulent en-suite four-piece bathroom.
Oil central heating and double glazing throughout ensure a warm, energy-efficient climate all year round.
Externally, in addition to the large front garden, the house benefits from a substantial rear garden. Perched on the cliffside, this neatly lawned garden fans out from terraced areas ideal for summer barbequing. To the front of the house, an expansive gravelled driveway, with parking for up to six vehicles, leads to an integral double garage.
