This is an extremely appealing semi-det property, which has much character, retains a number of period features and is in comfortable reach of the town centre and golf course, with stunning views to the Eildon Hills.
The well proportioned accommodation is in generally good order, with scope for a degree of cosmetic updating reflected within the attractive asking price; several carpets are new and there is gas central heating and full double glazing.
A traditional vestibule opens to the hall, which features original stripped pine doors with bacolite handles and includes a walk in cloakrm, next to which is a WC. The large open plan living/dining room is very stylish in its decor, has windows to each end, with Eildon views to the front, and includes a contemporary fire surround with electric fire. The kitchen is a fantastic size - comfortably large enough for casual dining and well equipped with units, with the storage further enhanced by a larder which houses the combi boiler. A door off the kitchen leads to a side porch, creating a very useful garden entrance, probably the most often used entrance into the house. The carpeted staircase has a white banister and leads up to a roomy landing, leading to the rest of the rooms by stripped back doors and with a hatch giving access up to the attic. Three of the four bedrooms are generous doubles, the fourth a single, ideal as a study or child's room/nursery. The spacious family bathroom has been refurbished to great effect and includes a separate shower cabinet with modern electric unit.
Externally, there is a garden to the front of the property with paving and a lawn, enclosed by a mature hedge giving good privacy. There is also a garden to the rear of the property with lawn, flower bed area, useful garden shed/ Green house and off-street parking. There is further on-street parking at the front of the house.
Viewing of this desirable property comes very highly recommended in order to fully appreciate.
