The Crest is a very well presented and spacious two-bedroom detached bungalow situated in the charming village of Maxton. With fabulous views to the South the property lies only a mile and a half from the popular Borders village of St. Boswells.
Architecturally designed, the large and attractive garden is a particular feature as is the potential to extend the existing footprint, subject to the necessary permissions.
The property 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 one level the accommodation comprises of two bedrooms, two ensuite shower rooms, a sitting room with dining area, a breakfasting kitchen, a utility room and a wc. There is also a large dressing room off the principal bedroom which could be reconfigured to make a study or home office. With excellent internal storage which includes the attic, the property is double glazed and benefits from gas fired central heating.
Externally, there is a private driveway leading up to the property which incorporates a small orchard and an extensive lawn lies to the front with plentiful parking, with an attached single garage with generous internal store. A large patio at one end leads to a charming South facing garden at the rear with lovely views over the rolling countryside. An additional patio area accessed from the sitting room also provides an excellent space for more 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)

There is also a highly regarded primary school and the property is also within the Earlston High School catchment. Nearby Melrose offers a wider range of amenities as well as the well respected St Mary’s Preparatory School.
