3 Larks Green is a modern 4 bedroomed detached property, offering comfortably proportioned, well planned accommodation and presented for sale in immaculate, beautifully maintained condition. Constructed circa 2017, the house has been finished to an exacting standard, boasting quality fittings, demonstrating an eye for detail throughout. The property enjoys fine open views and a semi rural yet highly convenient location, within easy reach of many surrounding Borders towns and major employers, such as the Borders General Hospital in Melrose and the Scottish Borders Council HQ in Newton St Boswells, for example.
For those seeking a quieter pace of life yet need to be in easy reach of facilities and transport links, 3 Larks Green offers an ideal solution, as it lies just a short drive away from the A68 trunk road, leading to towns and cities both North and South bound, with the railway station at Tweedbank also easily accessed, taking you to Edinburgh Waverley Station in an hour.
The accommodation comprises: four double bedrooms (one en-suite, one currently adopted as a study/tv room), an unusually spacious family bathroom with separate shower enclosure, a bright sitting room with wood burning stove, a fabulous dining kitchen with space for seating, a utility room and a downstairs WC. There is underfloor heating throughout, supplied from an air source heat pump. The windows are double glazed and there is plenty of storage, including useful loft storage in the house and garage.
Externally, there are good sized but easily kept gardens to front, side and rear, laid predominantly to grass with a beautiful mature tree to the front and a variety of young trees to the rear, which is slightly sloped and partly screened by hedges and fencing. A patio, conveniently accessed from the dining end of the kitchen, creates a perfect spot for al fresco dining. An adjoining garage, with electric up and over door, provides secure parking, fronted by a monoblocked driveway large enough for two cars very comfortably.

The property forms part of a small enclave of just three houses which sit back from the A698, accessed via a small shared monoblocked driveway running adjacent to The Caddy Mann restaurant. Only three miles away, the historic Borders town of Jedburgh is home to “Mary Queen of Scots' House" and the 12th century Jedburgh Abbey, both of which are situated in the heart of this picturesque town, which has a wide range of shops and restaurants up and down the High Street. There are a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area including fishing on the rivers Tweed and Teviot, and National Hunt racing in nearby Kelso, which also offers an ice rink as well as a superb range of quality independent shops, cafes and restaurants. There is a driving range behind the house, perfect for the keen golfer, with a number of excellent courses available including the Roxburghe championship course in Heiton. Local tourist destinations include Jedburgh Castle Jail, Ferniehurst Castle, Monteviot Gardens and the Harestanes Visitor Centre. The new Intergenerational school campus, opened in 2020, is gathering a great reputation, with private schooling available in Melrose at the renowned St Mary’s Preparatory School; a bus pick up service to both is at hand. Many Border towns are within easy driving distance, with the A68 giving easy access to all major routes north and south bound. Regular scheduled flights are from Edinburgh and Newcastle to a number of UK and European destinations. There are mainline railway links at Berwick-upon-Tweed, and only just over thirteen miles away at Tweedbank is the Borders Railway, which offers free parking and runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh.
