Weirgate Bank House is a charming and deceptively spacious three-bedroom house situated in the heart of the very popular Borders village of St. Boswells.
Offering spacious, flexible family living throughout, the property has been well maintained and lies within a strong school catchment with amenities close-by. There are also excellent transport links, with the Borders Railway at Tweedbank around six and a half miles away.
Lying across two levels the accommodation comprises three double bedrooms, an ensuite shower room, a family bathroom, a dining room, a sitting room, a breakfasting kitchen, and a utility room.
With excellent storage, the property provides a versatile living space, especially with a bedroom and shower room on the ground floor.
Externally, the large enclosed garden is a real feature of this property. Mainly laid to lawn there is extensive terracing immediately outside the property which is ideal for al fresco entertaining as well as admiring the views.
With access either via a vennel to the left-hand side or the garage to the right, it provides an excellent outdoor space. With parking for a couple of cars in the street immediately outside the property, this property should be viewed to be appreciated.
Most Border towns are readily accessible from St. Boswells via the A68, as is Berwick-upon-Tweed which has a mainline railway connection to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London. The Borders Railway, running from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, has recently opened and lies approximately six and a half miles away and adds to the accessibility of the St. Boswells area.
