Burnside originally consisted of two cottages which were subsequently converted to create a spacious, yet bright and well laid out property. Due to this space the property offers wonderful versatility for future owners to use the numerous rooms for a variety of purposes and in the way best suited for them. The property retains a number of traditional features which provide wonderful focal points in various rooms throughout the house.
The property enters to the front into a porch which in turn leads to the sitting room. The sitting room in common with the majority of the downstairs accommodation benefits from solid timber floors and in keeping with the rest of the house offers excellent proportions and ceiling height. One of the many features of the house is the double fronted fireplace which links the sitting room and the kitchen and provides a stunning focal point for both rooms. The magnificent dining/kitchen stretches the full width of the house and provides a comprehensive range of floor and base units with ample space for dining, and numerous built-in appliances including an Aga and Belfast sink and glazed double doors giving access to the rear garden. The kitchen also provides access to the very useful utility room.
A double archway from the living room gives access to the sitting room which enjoys two sets of French doors, which not only flood the room with light but provide further access to the rear garden. There is also a downstairs w.c. and shower room. The dining room is another versatile room and incorporates an attractive fireplace. Leading from this room is a further room which is a later extension and is currently used as a gym but again offers endless possibilities. The family room completes the downstairs accommodation and could be used as a sixth bedroom for the property. This room also gives access to the large double garage.
To the first floor there are 5 good sized bedrooms, 2 of which benefit from en-suite facilities. The master bedroom particularly is a great size and due to its elevated position benefits from fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. The recently refurbished family bathroom incorporates a wet room with large walk-in shower and Jacuzzi bath.

Burnside sits centrally within its plot and as such enjoys spacious gardens to the front and rear of the house. The property is accessed through remote control electric front gates onto a gravelled driveway. This in turn leads to a large parking and turning area to the front of the house, as well as giving access to the spacious double garage, complete with power, water and electric roll top doors. The well manicured front and rear gardens are predominantly laid to lawn and bordered with mature hedgerows as well as being interspersed with a number of mature trees and raised beds. A particular delight of the property is the additional land which lies to the rear of the back garden. It extends to approximately 0.69 Ha 1.7 Ac) and is currently subdivided into two paddocks with the additional benefit of a timber barn which has been used as a tack room and 2 loose box pony stables. Undoubtedly the additional land would benefit those with equestrian requirements.
