Property Details

**PRICED TO SELL - HOME REPORT £260,000 - EXCELLENT VALUE*** Originally the village smithy, this gorgeous cottage has seen many changes over its long history. At one stage the left hand section was the village shop, then it formed two separate cottages and most recently it has been combined into one. The formation makes it absolutely perfect for those with an extended family, need 'Granny' accommodation or are looking for income through a holiday let, as it is easily divided and retains two entrances. The location is delightful, rural but not at all isolated, and the village is well placed for access to major routes, with both Hawick and Jedburgh in easy reach. The beautiful large mature garden is to the rear, where a gate accesses the detached double garage and off road parking area, ideal for those with trailers and such like. The house is in excellent decorative order throughout, gives great flexibility with its layout and is fully double glazed with oil fired heating. Really is a must see - early viewing highly recommended.

The front door set to the right opens to the main section of the hall which gives direct access to the living room and kitchen, with a staircase up to three of the five bedrooms and one of the bathrooms. A door closes off the centrally situated dining room, from where access to the rest of the accommodation is gained. The front door to the left opens to a compact hallway, which leads directly to the sitting room and dining room, with a staircase taking you up to the second bathroom and further two bedrooms.
