Lockwood, The Walled Garden is a charming, well-proportioned and flexible four/five-bedroom detached bungalow which sits in around one acre of garden ground with views towards the Eildon Hills.
With potential for self-contained annexed accommodation, and set within the old walled garden of Maxton House, the property was built just under thirty years ago and is located only a short distance from St. Boswells, and only seven miles from the new Borders Railway running from Tweedbank to Edinburgh.
Measuring approximately 211 square metres/ 2271 square feet it comprises of four main bedrooms, three bathrooms (two ensuite), a fifth bedroom/study, a sitting room, a dining room, a breakfasting kitchen, a family room/snug, a utility room and a separate wc.
Externally there is a gated entrance into a gravel driveway, with plentiful parking, and leads to the double garage at the rear.
The garden, which extends to around one acre is a particular feature of this property, with large lawn to the front of the house, combined with patios and attractive borders. To the rear lie additional areas to sit out and enjoy the summer sunshine which also provides an exceptional outside entertaining space. There are a number of fruit trees, and specimen trees across the property and there is also a large vegetable garden which is well stocked with a variety of produce, a chicken run, and a selection of outbuildings including a greenhouse.
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 new Borders Railway, running from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, lies approximately seven miles away and adds to the accessibility of the St. Boswells area.
The A68 is less than a mile away and provides excellent transport links to Edinburgh and the North of England.
