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.
