Detached home in heart of Duns
Our property of the week is a lovely four-bed detached house in a quiet Duns cul de sac, close to the town centre.
The home at 1, The Crescent, dates from the early 1900's and provides sizeable, flexible accommodation, and offers scope for modernisation, upgrading and possibly some reconfiguration if desired.
It's also a very rare opportunity for those in search of a family home in the Berwickshire town, with the chance for the purchaser to create their own individual, forever family home. Occupying an established and private plot with gardens extending to the side and rear, there is also the added bonus of a garage and private driveway.
The ground floor layout offers plenty of flexibility with two sizeable reception rooms to the front which benefit from large windows and feature fireplaces.
The hall extends towards the rear of the property where there is the family room overlooking the garden at the rear – again this room could be used differently and could be a downstairs double bedroom. Opposite lies the study which enjoys a peaceful aspect over the side garden while the galley-style kitchen has outlooks to the rear and is fitted with a good range of units. A useful facility is provided by the utility room, which as well as having space for washing machine and tumble drier, is also fitted with a WC and wash-hand basin. An external door from the rear of the hallway gives access to the gardens.
The upper floor hosts three large double bedrooms, the master to the rear overlooking the gardens and the remaining two to the front. All are served by the main bathroom, which is fitted with wet wall panelling and a four-piece suite including jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle. Outside, the fully-enclosed garden is mainly laid to lawn with hedged and mature planted borders and boundaries, with a timber summerhouse, workshop, shed and greenhouse.
A single garage adjoins the property to one side with an area to the rear portioned off as storage/workshop. A rear door allows access to the garden and the driveway to front also provides useful off-street parking.
The property is on the market for offers over £220,000. To view, please call Hastings on 01573 922603.
