An extremely attractive three-bedroom traditional detached cottage in an elevated position with generous and private garden grounds offering wonderful countryside views. Dating back to the early 1900s, Eddlewood is a property exuding an abundance of character and historical charm. With design inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement, this is a time capsule house with meticulously designed fittings – door finger plates, stair rods, brass handles, leaded windows, and a distinctive doorbell - whispering tales of a bygone era.  Eddlewood was designed by and built for James Orr, the Master of Works (Buildings) for Peeblesshire County Council, who was himself a skilled draughtsman and woodworker.  Only known to have sold once in its existence (in 2014 to the present owners), Eddlewood presents a unique opportunity to restore, modernise and enhance this picturesque home.  The original plans, drawn and hand coloured by James Orr, will be included with the house.  Early viewing is strongly advised.

Accommodation is spread across two levels spanning an impressive 1,663 square feet, with two entrance hallways providing access to all ground floor accommodations from both sides.  The sitting room has dual aspect windows and features a Morso multi-fuel stove within the recess of the original fireplace.  The dining room exudes original character from wall panelling, feature doorway and built-in cupboards.  A central focal point is provided by another Morso multi-fuel stove, while the sweeping countryside views evoke a sense of timeless charm, perfect for entertaining.  The kitchen continues the original features including an assortment of wall and base units, whilst space and services are available for appliances.  Accessible from the kitchen, a door leads to a suite of storage and utility rooms housing the original coal store, a convenient ground floor WC, a room overlooking the garden and a third external door to a yard area with outside tap.  Above this suite of rooms is a loft space which at one time is thought to have been a workshop.  Completing the ground floor layout is a generously sized practical storage area, with larder shelves. 

Off the stairway, is a box room currently housing the water tank, yet with some thoughtful tweaking, could easily transform into an ideal home office space.  Accessed from first floor hallway are three comfortable double bedrooms all enjoying individuality and original character.  The larger of the three offers tremendous views to the front across the countryside and includes the original fireplace and bespoke cabinetry.  The second bedroom features dual aspect windows to the front and side of the property.  The third bedroom features a corner fitted cabinet and attractive fireplace.  The family bathroom has been modernised to incorporate a WC, wash hand basin, a panelled bath with an electric overhead shower, and a heated towel rail.

Externally, the charm extends to the wonderful private garden grounds surrounding the property.  The rear gardens which are accessed via Bellfield Road, offer areas of lawn, flower beds and colourful mature plantings.  A private driveway offers convenient off-street parking which leads to a timber and brick garage which would benefit from being restored or replaced.  Lockable timber gates at either side of the property and mature hedging ensures privacy for the sizeable front garden, which is tiered over three levels.  This space offers lovely views and options to develop alfresco dining and entertaining spaces and establish new bedding areas or vegetable patches.
