6 Leyden Park is a very well presented two-bedroom detached bungalow situated in the popular Borders village of Clovenfords. With the most charming garden to the rear with fabulous rural views, the property also lies within easy reach of the Borders Railway, either at Galashiels or Stow which are only four and six and a half miles away respectively.
Internally, the house sits across one level, with external steps leading to the front door, and comprises two double bedrooms, a bathroom, a large sitting room, a conservatory, a study/single bedroom and a kitchen. With loft ladder access to the attic, there is excellent storage throughout, whilst benefitting from double glazing and gas central heating. It should be noted that the study has been utilised as a single bedroom in the past, but for the avoidance of doubt is ideal for use as a study.
Externally, there is private parking in the driveway to the front of the large integral garage, along with a realm of attractive plants and shrubs to the front. The rear garden is a particular feature and benefits from a generous lawn, well stocked borders, plus mature shrubs and trees. The drystone boundary wall and raised beds, with plentiful areas to sit out for more informal entertaining are a particular feature. There is also a useful garden shed, which is included in the price.
Edinburgh is easily accessible via the A7 just North of Clovenfords, as are most Border towns, as well as the Borders General Hospital, on the outskirts of Melrose, which is approximately nine miles away.
Galashiels 4 miles. Edinburgh 32.5 miles. Stow 6.5 miles. Tweedbank 6 miles. (All mileage is approximate)

Location:
6 Leyden Park sits in a popular residential development in the village of Clovenfords which benefits from a hotel, a small village shop and a primary school.
The thriving old mill town of Galashiels, to the East, with a population of 12,000 offers a fuller range of shopping facilities, including Tesco, ASDA, Boots, Next, WH Smith and Marks & Spencer. Local tourist attractions include the Great Scottish Tapestry, Old Gala House and Abbotsford House, the former home of Sir Walter Scott, with its award-winning visitor centre as well as many other attractions in nearby Melrose and other Border towns.
Among the independent shops in Galashiels there is also a cinema, a health centre, a swimming pool, gym, dentists, orthodontist and a Transport Interchange built primarily around the new train station in conjunction with the Borders Railway which is a particular bonus. Local sports teams include Gala RFC, Gala Fairydean FC, and Gala CC and local festivals include the historic Common Ridings held in the summer which is of particular note.
There are also a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area that include fishing on the River Tweed, fieldsports, horse riding, golf, lawn bowling, mountain biking, and a selection of walks including the Southern Upland Way.
Clovenfords has a primary school, with secondary schooling at Galashiels Academy. The Borders College and Heriot Watt University also have a campus in Galashiels, and there are also a number of churches in the area.
The Borders General Hospital, the largest hospital in the Scottish Borders is approximately seven miles away, on the fringes of Melrose.
Clovenfords sits in an easily accessible area and can be reached by the nearby A7 which runs through to Galashiels and provides the links to Edinburgh or the north of England. The area is also served by the Borders Railway which runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, with stops in Galashiels and Stow. There is also a busy bus service which runs from the Interchange in Galashiels, beside the railway, with links to Newcastle and Carlisle in the South, as well as Edinburgh and the other Border towns.
Edinburgh International Airport also offers an excellent choice of destinations and lies 39 miles away.
