Of particular note is the generous, and attractive garden with plans for a studio, with a separate mutual access that would ideal for those looking to work from home.
The cottage is also located in a strong school catchment with the Borders Railway station at Tweedbank, and the A68 offering excellent transport links to Edinburgh and the North of England.
Lying across two levels the accommodation comprises of four main bedrooms, a family bathroom, a sitting room, a dining kitchen, a fifth bedroom/office, a utility room, a boot room and a downstairs wc. There is also good internal and external storage which is particularly useful as well as gas fired central heating.
Externally, there is a large L-shaped south-facing garden to the rear with an abundance of small trees and shrubs, borders and a lawn plus open fields to the rear. There is also a patio area accessed off the dining kitchen providing an excellent space for informal entertaining.
Most Border towns are readily accessible from the area, as is Berwick-upon-Tweed which has a mainline railway connection to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London. The Borders Railway, running from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, lies approximately eight and a half miles away and adds to the accessibility of the St. Boswells area.
Kelso 8.5 miles. Edinburgh 40 miles. Melrose 6.5 miles. St. Boswells 1.5 miles. Tweedbank 8.5 miles. (All distances are approximate)
