Property Details

CLOSING DATE 12 NOON FRIDAY 8TH APRIL. Belses Station Cottage is a charming 4 bed property, originally two semi-detached cottages circa 1860, sympathetically combined into one by the current owners in the mid 1980's. Offering a good level of accommodation and versatility, this is a home with a cosy feel, perfect for a family or anyone seeking the work from home "good life" combination. Enjoying a peaceful just off the beaten track location, Belses is surrounded by beautiful countryside and scenery. The cottage includes multiple features in keeping with its age, including shuttered windows, several fireplaces (2 with stoves), tongue and groove doors and wooden flooring. The garden that wraps around the house includes areas laid to lawn, and a vegetable patch, is easily managed and attracts a diversity of birds. Adjacent to the house lies a large woodland garden area, complete with fruit bushes/trees and a pond. This area would suit a variety of potential uses.

The property lies around 3.5 miles from both popular villages of Lilliesleaf and Ancrum and is centrally situated to all Border towns, including Melrose and Tweedbank railway station which is only twenty minutes' drive away. The Tweedbank railway station brings Edinburgh city centre within an hour's journey and enjoys free parking.

Internally, there is a sitting room, a dining room, a cosy snug/study, a kitchen with pantry, four bedrooms, a bathroom upstairs and a shower room downstairs. A storm porch creates an attractive focal point as the entrance to the house. Storage is well catered for throughout. Traditional, multi-paned double glazed sash windows with wooden shutters are throughout the house. Central heating is provided by a multi-fuel stove with an additional wood-burning stove in the sitting room, and backed up by wall-mounted electric space heaters upstairs and downstairs.
