Marmion House & Cottage, Norham

Guide price £495,000

Marmion House is a delightful detached Georgian house with later extensions providing well-proportioned, spacious family accommodation in a beautiful setting.

The drawing room and family kitchen look on to the historic castle and the famous River Tweed.

The property retains many original features such as deep skirtings and cornicing and bay windows taking in the breathtaking views. The drawing room with its window seat, dual aspect and open fire is a gorgeous room in which to 
enjoy the view.

The family kitchen with built-in floor and wall units, four-oven Aga and built-in oven provides the perfect place for busy family meals or entertaining in the evening, again enjoying a wonderful view.

Also on the ground floor is the snug, shower room and a large boot room, which doubles as an office, and is plumbed for a washing machine.

A dog-leg staircase with timber balustrade leads to the first floor with three well-proportioned double bedrooms.

A small dressing area with wash handbasin in bedroom 2 could be incorporated with the master bedroom to give an ensuite shower room. The master bedroom and bedroom 2 enjoy views to the river and castle.

Marmion Cottage, to the rear of the property, is an added bonus and ideal for an overspill of family and guests or as a form of income if used as a holiday cottage.

It is a charming, single-storey stone-built property providing a spacious dining kitchen with open fire, large sitting room with French door to the courtyard, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Many original features have been retained including an Inglenook fireplace in the kitchen.

A gravel drive bordered by the garden, with mature trees, shrubs and lawn, sweeps to the front of the property. To the rear is a private courtyard with lavender and rose beds which is a glorious suntrap.

There is a spacious bothy which provides a blank canvas for the creation of a studio/office or bedsit. And there is also a single garage with integrated dry storage cupboard.

Access from the courtyard via a narrow footpath leads to a small pony paddock.
