Property description

A stone built semi detached cottage, offering two bedrooms and a raised decked area to rear. Recently refurbished with superb countryside views.

The Property
9 Chapel Terrace is a well presented semi detached cottage located within the popular village of Rookhope. Having undergone a recent programme of refurbishment to include new carpets and flooring throughout, a new electric combination boiler installed in October 2020 and new winter white wood effect blinds to some windows, the property enjoys superb countryside views.

The main entrance leads into the vestibule, where to the left hand side a half glazed door leads into the living room. Featuring a tiled fireplace with open grate fire, the useful under stair cupboard is accessed from here.

The kitchen is located to the rear elevation, and is fitted with a range of base and wall mounted storage units. Topped with contrasting worktops which incorporate a stainless steel sink with mixer tap and drainer unit, there is space for a freestanding electric cooker, washing machine and fridge/freezer, as well as a small dining table. An external door provides access to the rear of the property, as well as to the outhouse which houses the wall mounted electric combination boiler.

Returning to the vestibule, stairs rise to the first floor landing. The master bedroom is a well proportioned double, and enjoys superb countryside views to the front elevation.

The second bedroom is situated to the rear elevation, and is a small double/good sized single which enjoys a pleasant outlook over the raised decked area.

The family bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising low level WC, wash hand basin set upon a pedastal and panel enclosed bath with electric shower over.

To the front of the property, there is a forecourt garden which enjoys superb countryside views. While to the rear, steps lead up to a raised decked area which offers privacy and space for entertaining. There is also a redundant oil tank located on the decked area.
