Outstanding and beautifully presented house.
The Laurels enjoys an enviable and private setting at Letham Grange, only some 3.5 miles inland from the Angus coast. It is situated on the edge of an area known as Peebles, in an elevated position, with views from both the front and the back. It is an attractive house which was built for the sellers in 2003 and was designed by Heinz Voigt, an award winning architect. The house, which occupies one of the largest plots, was designed to make the most of its position and to maximise light. It was originally used as a very fine family home with a useful and attached one bedroom annexe, known as Greenside Lodge. Latterly both the house and annexe have been very successfully used for luxurious holiday lets. As such the house could be a fabulous family home, with the lodge being used as ancillary or as letting accommodation. Alternatively, The Laurels could work as a well appointed second home, and the holiday lets continued. The house benefits from underfloor heating on the ground floor, and both properties are fully double glazed.
The Laurels has a harled finish with facing bricks, together with a tiled roof. Its traditional looking exterior hides a modern and very well finished and presented interior with many of the rooms having cornices. The spacious accommodation is arranged around a dining room, sitting room, living room and kitchen, which are interlinking. Off these is a games room or office and a useful larder and WC. On the other side is a downstairs en suite bedroom and a utility room which links to the integral garage. This in turn is linked to the annexe which has an open plan kitchen and living room, as well as a shower room downstairs and a bedroom above. In the main house there are three more bedrooms upstairs (one en suite) and a family shower room. The gardens are a delight and are linked to the house by a verandah, and are screened from the neighbouring houses by a grassed bund.

The gardens and grounds at The Laurels are a delight, and are linked to the kitchen by a covered verandah, which makes an ideal sheltered eating and sitting area. Behind the house is a wooden summer house (3.6 m x 3.6 m). The gardens themselves are mainly laid to lawn, with shrub borders and trees.
