Formed by the amalgamation of two properties and enjoying a convenient location just a short walk from the town centre this quirky, yet spacious south facing property would make an ideal family home. It affords flexible, well proportioned accommodation over three floors comprising:- Dining Kitchen, Sitting Room with Study Area off, Hallway, Master Bedroom with en-suite Shower Room, two single Bedrooms, Walk-in Linen Cupboard, Family Bathroom and large attic Bedroom with lovely south facing views towards the Cheviot Hills. A split-level timber-built extension to the side and rear of the property comprises a utility area and a multi-purpose room which, with a bit of upgrading could make a lovely garden room or studio. Gas central heating and double glazing are installed and a very private and enclosed area of garden ground lies to the rear.
Centred around an attractive market square, the former market town of Duns, with a population of approximately 2625, enjoys an excellent range of shopping facilities and local services. Educational opportunities are well catered for by a state of the art secondary school and newly refurbished primary school while the recently enhanced Volunteer Hall provides an excellent venue for many community activities. Local attractions include the newly extended and reburbished Jim Clark Motorsport Museum, housing over 100 trophies and memorabilia from the life of the world famous racing driver and the magnificent Manderston House which boasts the only silver staircase in the world and a marble dairy. For those interested in recreational pursuits, pleasant walks can be found in the tranquil surroundings of Duns Castle Nature Reserve and more energetic activities are well provided for with a fine 18 hole golf course, swimming pool and tennis courts. More extensive shopping and recreational amenities can be found in the larger towns of Berwick-upon-Tweed which also has a mainline railway station (15 miles) and Kelso (approximately 19 miles).
