The dining kitchen provides a wonderful living space, and truly is the heart of the home.

Decorative oak wall cabinetry adds further character with a traditional plate-rack, open shelving and mantel above the oil-fired AGA stove.

The utility cupboard within the boot room provides a dedicated space for the washing machine and tumble dryer.

Bathroom Facilities

The family bathroom is fitted with a traditional 4-piece suite including WC, vanity basin, bath and shower enclosure with mixer shower. Neutral decor and natural stone tiling complete the look perfectly.

The master en-suite is fitted with a modern 3-piece suite including WC, pedestal basin and quadrant shower enclosure with mixer shower. Crisp marbled wall tiling and stone effect floor tiling complete the look.

Externally

Woodview is accessed via a set of timber gates from the main street. The driveway sweeps around the property, providing plentiful parking for several vehicles to the side and rear of the cottage. The driveway is shared with the neighbouring property, Burnsyde Lodge, which benefits from a right of access over the driveway. The driveway also gives access to the garden studio.

The rear garden provides a wonderful outdoor entertaining space with areas of lawn and patio surrounded by well-stocked borders, bound by traditional stone walling. There is a delightful pond with waterfall feature as well as a timber framed pergola for alfresco dining. To the rear of the garden there is a self contained storage area which currently houses two large timber sheds.

Outbuildings

There is a timber framed studio located to the rear of the property which benefits from mains power, lighting and a wood burning stove. The studio is fully insulated and double glazed providing a space that can be enjoyed all-year round. Currently set up as an art studio, this wonderful space could equally be used as an additional living space or as a work from home office.

In addition to the studio, there are two timber framed sheds.

Woodview is nestled in the very heart of the idyllic village of Ettrickbridge which is highly regarded as the central hub for the picturesque and dramatic Ettrick Valley. It benefits from a highly-regarded Primary School and a traditional village Inn which serves as a local public house and restaurant.

Ettrickbridge is a vibrant and inclusive village with many active groups and clubs, ranging from the mother and toddler play group, to the sports and recreation club as well as art and craft groups. The sports field and pavilion are virtually opposite the cottage and, in addition to a well-used recreation area, offer a children’s play park and an excellent community tennis court. These facilities are also the focus for the many events that make up the village’s annual ‘Brigend Week’ summer festival.
