3 St. Andrews Court is a deceptively spacious four-bedroom mid-terrace family home which forms part of an attractive courtyard development of six properties. Situated in the grounds of a former country estate, the property lies between the Borders towns of Earlston and Melrose which are only two and four miles away respectively.
With the A68 readily available, providing excellent transport links, its idyllic situation provides numerous nearby walks in a very unique location for those who love the outdoors.
With a strong school catchment, the property also benefits from a separate paddock of around one acre which is a particular bonus.
Internally, the accommodation comprises four bedrooms, an ensuite bathroom, a family bathroom, a large sitting room, a dining room, a breakfasting kitchen, a utility room and a downstairs wc. With an abundance of natural light there is also good storage throughout the property including ladder access to the attic.
Externally, there is private parking to the front of the integral garage with the communal courtyard providing additional visitor parking. To the rear is an extensive, enclosed garden which has been thoughtfully landscaped and is a particular feature. The aforementioned paddock, of around one acre, sits up beside the access driveway and is laid to grass.
Only six miles from the new Borders Railway, which runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, the property is conveniently located for commuting. Edinburgh is also easily accessible via the A68, with most Borders towns plus the Borders General Hospital on the outskirts of Melrose readily available from this central location.
Edinburgh 35 miles. Melrose 4 miles. Tweedbank 6 miles. St. Boswells 4 miles. Earlston 2 miles.
