46 Raeburn Place is a 2 bedroom mid terraced property, dating from the early 20th century, which offers an ideal first time buyers home but is equally well suited as a rental investment, with a successful track record as such. The property has much character as well as several pleasing features and provides comfortably proportioned but easily kept accommodation, in very good order decoratively and fitted with gas central heating as well as double glazing.
The property is situated in a residential area located towards the fringes of Selkirk, but is within reasonably easy reach of the town centre which provides a good range of amenities. Positioned around six miles from Railway stations in either Galashiels or Tweedbank, both providing a regular train service to Edinburgh with free parking at Tweedbank, Selkirk enjoys excellent access to Edinburgh and other Border towns via the A7 and is well served by public transport.
Internally the property is set over two levels, with the accommodation comprising: two bedrooms, a surprisingly spacious bathroom with separate shower enclosure, a sitting room with fireplace and window seat and a family/dining room, featuring a wood burner and doors to the rear, and a compact kitchen set off the dining/family room. There is gas fired central heating and the windows are double glazed.
Externally, the property has a paved terrace to the front and an appealing easily kept garden to the rear, which includes a secluded little deck and has steps leading up to an area of grass which houses a shed and has a gate leading out to a rear pathway. On street parking.
