Boisils is a very well-proportioned and flexible three-bedroom bungalow with the most fabulous southerly views.
Situated in the much sought-after conservation village of Bowden which is only a short drive from the Borders Town of Melrose, or the village of St. Boswells, and around five and a half miles from the Borders Railway, which runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh.
Requiring a fair degree of upgrading throughout the property benefits from attractive stone wall and beech hedging facing the road, and extensive driveway parking.
Internally, the property provides versatile and spacious accommodation across one level comprising two main bedrooms, an ensuite shower room, a bathroom, a sitting room, a breakfasting kitchen, a dining room/bedroom three, a further office/bedroom and a utility room. There is also an external conservatory for those sunny days and from where to enjoy the stunning views.
As a bungalow it is perfect for someone downsizing, offering generous accommodation which benefits from good storage throughout including loft ladder access to the attic, double glazing, and a wood burning stove in the sitting room.
Externally, the property has a full width paved terrace to the front of the property from where you can enjoy the beautiful views, with steps leading down to terraced flower beds. There is also access off the dining room/bedroom three lead onto a covered veranda, and a path leading down both sides of the house to large driveway with parking for several cars. Surrounded by hedging, mature shrubs and trees there is a fair degree of privacy, with well stocked borders and a small lawn. A workshop lies at one end, which is particularly useful and there is a further outhouse which is currently used as a coal shed.
Edinburgh is easily accessible via the A68, with most Border towns readily available from this central location, along with the aforementioned Borders Railway.
