7 Scott Road is an immaculately presented and deceptively spacious two-bedroom semi-detached house situated in the heart of the much sought-after Borders Town of Lauder.
The property would make an excellent first home or investment opportunity, offering commuter access to Edinburgh via the A68, or by train from Stow, that runs to Edinburgh, which lies approximately six miles away.
Situated in an excellent school catchment with strong transport links, the accommodation lies across two floors and comprises two bedrooms, a bathroom, a sitting room, a breakfasting kitchen, and a study. With good storage, the property also has double glazing and gas central heating.
Externally, the property benefits from on-street parking and an area of lawn immediately to the front of the property. The large, enclosed garden sits to the rear with access onto the patio area from the sitting room, and a gated access to the side. An excellent space for more informal entertaining, it offers opportunity to extend the downstairs, subject to the necessary permissions.
Edinburgh is easily accessible via the A68, as are most Border towns. The Borders Railway, running from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, has a stop at Stow which is approximately six miles away, with the journey from Stow to Edinburgh Waverley being around forty-five minutes.
