Description

This charming stone built garden cottage sits just off the High Street int he popular village of Lauder - and is available separately, or with the neighbouring property 21 East High Street, of which it shares access and garden. Offering an exciting development opportunity for the two - please contact Hastings Legal for further information on purchasing both properties..

As a whole, 21 & 23 East High Street would suit a variety of needs; whether as a main residence with holiday let or granny annex, and both cottages have excellent track records as successful rental investments.

Individually, 23 East High Street is a well presented and deceptively spacious two bedroom semi, with well appointed living space and a pleasant rear garden with parking.

A sweet and characterful garden cottage tucked away from the main thoroughfare, and benefiting an excellent position for amenities and transport - this quiet spot is a hidden gem! Currently the charming gardens are shared between 21 & 23 - however if purchased separately they will be divided into two well appointed sections, with both benefiting the rear access and parking and could easily be fenced off to ensure privacy. The cottage is ideal as a main residence, a country-getaway or as annexe accommodation for number 21.

Location

An increasingly popular spot, Lauder is arguably one of the best connected Border village; with swift access to Edinburgh in under an hour or south via the A68, and nearby train connection at Stow making it a popular choice for commuters. The work-life balance of the village is another admirable feature; set in stunning rolling countryside with a host of outdoor and recreational hobbies well catered for, it is considered a great choice for families - with a well performing primary school and within the catchment for the top performing secondary Earlston high School.

Lauder is home to Thirlestane Castle; a magnificent 16th Century Castle set in a quiet meadow landscape and the family home of the Duke of Lauderdale. Thirlestane is one of the oldest and finest Castles in Scotland where you will find many beautiful and peaceful walks to enjoy. The Tour de Lauder sets off from Lauder every April attracting cyclists from all over the country. There is a real sense of community spirit within the village with many events for all ages held in the local pubs and Town Hall. There is a good selection of small outlets including an award winning butcher, baker, fruit & veg shop, co-op and two very good coffee shops.
