Westloch Cottage,

Selling Solicitor:

Coldingham, TD14 5QE Offers Over £379,000

The interior is beautifully presented and highlights key features, such as solid engineered oak flooring, full-height windows, neutral decoration, excellent storage and a semi open-plan ground floor layout that links the 25ft living room with the adjoining dining room, which in turn has double doors into the fully fitted/integrated breakfasting kitchen and utility beyond.

The detail is impressive; the living room has patio doors to the front and side that access the gardens, a recessed cast-iron multi-fuel stove on a polished granite hearth and double doors to the dining room – a combined space that comes into its own for entertaining, especially in summer when the rooms can be opened up to the barbecue terrace and gardens beyond.

Architect designed and completed in 2008, in recent years this detached villa has been run as a successful holiday let, which could make it appealing to property investors as well as family buyers seeking a lifestyle location within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh (Coldingham is just three miles off the A1 and less than an hour from the city centre).

Completing the ground floor accommodation is a home office /fifth bedroom – which as it adjoins the cloakroom, could be ideal as a guest bedroom.

Westloch is a lovely home in an area that offers a quality of life second to none. Situated on the northeast coast, Coldingham is a historic village famous for its ruined priory, now in the care of Historic Scotland.

Set against a woodland backdrop, Westloch occupies a third of an acre that includes landscaped gardens – mainly lawn but with the addition of a barbecue terrace off the dining room – plus gravelled driveway and detached double garage.

Off the upstairs landing are four bedrooms – all with fitted storage, while the dual aspect master bedroom also has a dressing area and en suite shower room – and a refitted main bathroom, fully tiled incorporating a vanity basin, corner bath and separate shower. The landing also has additional storage cupboards adjacent to the bathroom.

Westloch Cottage is a home that will resonate with anyone looking to secure an individually designed modern country house in an idyllic coastal setting only a short distance from the conservation village of Coldingham and bay of the same name, the latter fringed by one of Scotland’s most beautiful award-winning Blue Flag sandy beaches.

It also has a primary school, local shop, pubs and refurbished village hall. However, its main claim to fame is the beach, only a short walk from the village. Lying within part of Scotland’s only Voluntary Marine Nature Reserve, Coldingham is a Blue Flag beach that attracts watersports enthusiasts from far and wide for surfing, kayaking and diving. Nearby St Abbs is a fishing village in a rugged setting famed for its dramatic cliffs and seabird colonies, while the nature reserve boasts a wealth of other wildlife along with breathtaking scenery.
