Description

Great development opportunity

7 Kilnknowe is a very spacious First and Attic Floor Maisonette located within a popular residential area close to Earlston town centre. Equating to around 100 sq.m (1076 sq.ft.), the property is in need of complete refurbishment and upgrading, but provides a blank canvass for the incoming purchaser to really make their mark. The property benefits from all mains services, gas central heating, double glazing and unrestricted on-street parking to both the front and rear of the property.
Internally


Hallway, lounge, dining room, kitchen, shower room, 3 bedrooms and box room/study

The internal layout has scope for reconfiguration and upgrading to provide spacious living accommodation. Both the Lounge and Dining Room feature a range of period features, including high ceilings, ornate plaster cornicing (Lounge) and fireplaces. The property is set back from the road, in an elevated position, which provides great views over to the surrounding Borders countryside.

The Kitchen is a good size comprising a range of base and wall units with laminated worktops and a stainless steel sink. There are freestanding appliance spaces for a cooker, washing machine and tall fridge freezer. There is a full height cupboard housing the gas fired boiler. Although in need of refurbishment it is still serviceable.

The Shower Room has been adapted to incorporate a level access shower enclosure which is fitted with an electric shower and wet-wall splash backs. A closed coupled toilet and pedestal wash hand basin compete the suite.
Externally


The property is accessed via a communal stairwell which is shared with the adjoining neighbour. Private access is via the Kitchen door to the rear.

There is a private section of garden ground to the rear of the property which is predominantly laid to lawn. The garden is currently left unbounded to the neighbouring gardens and houses a timber framed shed.

Location

Set in the Lauderdale Valley to the north east of the central borders, Earlston lies around 45 minutes south of Edinburgh, and is conveniently located for access to the main Border towns. Dating from at least the 13th Century, Earlston is said to be the home of Thomas Learmonth, better known as Thomas the Rhymer. The town benefits from a good selection of local facilities including independent shops, pubs, a church, petrol station, small supermarket and excellent local schooling including Earlston High School, one of only two schools in Scotland to feature in Tatler's Top 20 State Secondary Schools 2018.

The town is well suited for commuters, with Edinburgh around a 45 minute drive via the A68, while Tweedbank Railway Station is around a 10 minute drive and offers a journey time to Edinburgh of just under an hour. For outdoor enthusiasts, local activities include numerous walks and bike rides, fishing on the nearby River Tweed, horse riding, and rough and syndicated shooting.
