Sunnyside occupies a central position, within the sought-after village of Coldingham and is well placed for easy access to the beach.

Coldingham Bay and St Abbs which are further down the road are renowned for their beautiful sandy beaches and coastal walks and the area has been designated AONB (Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
Further up the coast road towards Berwick upon Tweed is the pretty working harbour town of Eyemouth which offers further amenities including a range of local shops, professional services, public houses, restaurants and banks. Eyemouth has schooling for all ages including the well-respected and recently built Eyemouth High School. The town offers a good selection of sports clubs and Eyemouth Golf Club is also very well regarded. A lot of the industry in Eyemouth is based around the working harbour, this in turn offers the town a charm and character not found anywhere else.

The local area around Sunnyside offers many country and sporting pursuits including hill walking in the Cheviots, salmon, trout or sea fishing, horse riding, diving and shooting. The area is also famous for its golf courses with Eyemouth, Dunbar and Goswick all within a short drive.
Despite its proximity to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, this part of the world is sparsely populated with much of the area given over to agriculture and therefore offers a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare.
Sunnyside is a delightful period double-fronted house, offering bright and well-proportioned accommodation extending to circa 173m2 over three principal floors and by virtue of its south facing position, benefits from a light and bright atmosphere throughout. Externally there is private parking, a large garage and mature gardens to the front and side of the house.
The property has been a much loved family home and will appeal to both second home and full-time purchasers.
The front door opens into a welcoming hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors leading off. The dining room is a good-sized reception off the hall, with a window to the front of the property and has a most attractive stone fireplace. There is a door leading through to the attached outbuilding, which could lend itself to additional accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary consent. On the other side of the hall is a bright and well-equipped kitchen with a range of floor and wall mounted units with counters over and offering ample space and plumbing for free standing appliances. The kitchen overlooks the pretty front garden, has a multi fuel stove as the focal point and has ample space for a table. Off the kitchen is a practical utility room with cloakroom.
