This is an absolutely delightful semi detached family home, full of character and style and offered for sale in extremely good order decoratively throughout. The rooms are all very comfortably sized and give great versatility, there are quality carpets and fittings, plus the house has the advantage of gas central heating and full double glazing. The lounge cum dining room includes a bay window, which takes full advantage of the stunning views, plus it features a most attractive fireplace with a gas fire. The second public room has dual aspect windows and a tiled fireplace and is perfect for use as an every day lounge, TV or family/play room and the kitchen is equipped with an excellent range of modern units, with integrated appliances and a glass display cabinet. Upstairs the landing leads to the three bedrooms, two of which are doubles set to the front, with the master also having a bay window, the third is a generous single and is set to the rear, with a lovely view over the garden. The bathroom is roomy and well appointed and a box room style cupboard off the landing, sporting a porthole window, leads up to the very useful floored attic. The mature gardens are beautifully kept and a gate at the back leads out to the garage which is accessed off Douglas Road.
The location provides the house with the benefit of marvellous views over the town and beyond. The Borders town of Hawick provides an excellent variety of leisure and shopping facilities and is well placed for access to several of the principal towns within the region, whilst the A7, which runs through the town, brings major routes both North and South bound within comfortable striking distance.
Travelling along Weensland Road turn right into Douglas Road East, just before the little shop that sits on the left. Follow the road up the hill and towards the veer to the left - number 22 sits on the right on the bend. Sat nav users should please note that the post code will not take you to the correct location in this instance.
Viewing is considered absolutely essential to fully appreciate the appeal of this lovely family home.
