This first and second floor maisonette forms part of an attractive block of flats and cottages in a pretty rural location just a couple of miles from the nearby town of Duns. Built originally to accommodate mill workers from the former woollen mill the area now has a distinct holiday feel despite the majority of properties being privately owned permanent residences. The spacious accommodation comprises:- Living/Dining Room, Kitchen, Bathroom and two Bedrooms. Double glazing and electric wet central heating are installed. Entrance to the property is via a flight of external steps to the rear of the property. A delightful area of garden ground also lies to the rear and ample unrestricted parking lies to the front. The property overlooks a large, communal grassed area to the front for which there is a small maintenance charge. The access road is adopted and maintained by the Local Authority.
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 refurbished 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).
