Dating back to circa 1800, this characterful two-bedroom cottage forms part of a traditional row, enjoying a leafy outlook, in the picturesque market town of Strathaven. Perfect for the modern lifestyle, the cottage boasts modern interiors, contemporary fixtures and fittings, desirable open-plan living, and a usable loft space, whilst a charming courtyard garden is enviably southwest-facing and on-street parking is available in front of the home.
The front door opens into an entrance vestibule, leading into a hallway which sets the tone for the airy interiors to follow, with light neutral décor and modern wood-styled flooring. To the right of the hall, the home’s sweep of open-plan living space spans the entire depth of the property, incorporating a comfortable living area, room for seated dining, and a kitchen with separate hall access.
The reception area, with built-in display shelving, provides flexible floorspace for a variety of configurations of furniture, creating a perfect setting for everyday living and entertaining, whilst the kitchen is stylish and contemporary, with gloss-white cabinetry, wood-inspired worktops, and on-trend metro tiling. An integrated oven, a gas hob, a statement extractor hood, a fridge/freezer and a freestanding washing machine are incorporated, and the area is supplemented by built-in storage, including a utility cupboard with a dryer.
Stairs lead to a porch, opening onto the sunny courtyard garden, and continue up to a landing on the first floor, affording access to the home’s two double bedrooms. Both sleeping areas enjoy the airiness and leafy outlook of the living accommodation, and whilst one is supplemented by an alcove with storage, both provide plenty of space for freestanding bedroom furnishings. A spacious, modern bathroom features a bathtub, a corner shower enclosure, a basin set into storage, a WC, and a ladder-style radiator. Subject to the appropriate permissions, a large usable loft space, with generous storage, offers fabulous scope and potential for use as a further bedroom or an additional living area. Gas central heating and double glazing are found throughout.
Externally, the home enjoys an enclosed south-facing courtyard garden, whilst unrestricted on-street parking is available to the front of the property and within the vicinity.
