School Wood is a well-presented three-bedroom detached bungalow situated in a charming semi-rural location only two and a half miles from the historic Borders town of Jedburgh. With fabulous views to the South, the property also benefits from a large woodland extending to around fifteen acres, which is a particular feature.
The entire package of woodland, large garden and outbuildings provide an excellent opportunity for someone running a business from home or simply wanting a rural lifestyle a short distance from local amenities.
Internally, the accommodation comprises three bedrooms, an ensuite shower room, a bathroom, a sitting room, a dining kitchen and a utility room. With potential to extend the existing footprint, subject to the necessary permissions, there is good storage and double glazing throughout.
Externally, the property lies in just over half an acre and has extensive driveway parking with a large timber-built garage with separate workshop, a self-contained office, a dog run and a wood store. There is also a large summer house and an array of children’s outdoor toys which are included in the sales price.
The fifteen acre wood, directly behind the property, has planning permission for the creation of an access directly off the A68 but can be accessed directly from the garden too, and provides an excellent degree of privacy and enjoyment.
Most Border towns are readily accessible from this location, as are Newcastle and Edinburgh via the A68 which both have international airports, with a mainline railway station at Berwick-upon-Tweed.
