Cherrybank, Waterbeck, DG11
Cherrybank is an outstanding detached family home, built by the present owners in 2005 to an exacting standard. It enjoys beautifully landscaped gardens, open views and an enclosed paddock (56m x 48m).
This immaculately presented property offers high quality fixtures and fittings throughout and enjoys a flexible layout, with the benefit of a superb, detached outbuilding and a year-round outdoor entertaining area with bar and kitchen.
ACCOMMODATION Ground Floor
The property is accessed via a welcoming and spacious hallway. The ground floor presently offers a magnificent open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room with wood burning stove, central island, 5 door electric Aga and bespoke cabinetry with granite worksurfaces. A separate snug offers additional living space but could easily be purposed as an extra bedroom. There is a generous double bedroom, a superb family bathroom with double-ended free standing bath and separate shower cubicle. To the rear of the property is a useful utility room, a WC and back door to the garden. It is worth noting that there is underfloor heating to the entire ground floor.
An open-tread wood and metal staircase leads to a generous first floor landing. The first floor offers a large sitting room, which could easily be utilised as a double bedroom, two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes and a family bathroom. The family bathroom boasts a free-standing claw-foot bath with hand-held shower attachment and a separate shower cubicle. All of the rooms are spacious and very well appointed and each room is flooded with natural light.
OUTSIDE A gated entrance opens into a smart paved driveway that leads down to the front of the house and around to the rear, giving ample parking for family and guests, and provides access to the paddock at the rear. The driveway is flanked by rockeries and mature borders. The rear garden is landscaped for ease of maintenance and laid to paved patios and gravelled areas. The garden enjoys the sun for much of the day.
Also of special note is the fantastic covered entertaining area. A timber structure, with slate roof and low brick walls, this is the ideal area for al-fresco entertaining. There is a fitted bar, built-in ovens and an open fire. There is also power and light.
The enclosed paddock extends to approximately 56m x 48m and is located directly to the rear of the house, with an area of hard standing to the side.
Stone built with a slate roof, this is an excellent addition to the family home. The space offers two rooms, is fully insulated with power and light, and is presently used as a home gym with storeroom and sauna to the rear. This building could be used for a home office, for multi-generational living or simply to provide further living space.
LOCATION Local area
Cherrybank sits in a popular location within the charming village of Waterbeck, in a rural yet accessible situation, with the M74 located 4 miles away and excellent rail links. Located 11 miles from Lockerbie and 9 miles from Annan, the property is well served by both town's excellent range of local amenities and services including primary and secondary schools. There are also primary schools in Waterbeck (Hottsbridge) and Eaglesfield.
Dumfriesshire is one of the genuinely rural areas of Scotland and therefore provides a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare, offering a lifestyle property for country and equestrian pursuits, and including golf courses at Lockerbie and Powfoot.
Southbound or Northbound from the M74 take Junction 20 to Eaglesfield, follow the B722 road through the village and continue for 2 miles up to Waterbeck. The property is located towards the far end of the village on the right-hand side.
