  • Town Centre Location
A fantastic opportunity to purchase a shell of a property which was once a painters’ store awaiting further development to form a 1-bedroom townhouse which would make an ideal first home or a small niche market holiday let. The renovations were started several years ago, and the property has been completely stripped out leaving the 3 floors however, the property has no staircases as present. This would make an ideal project for a novice or a tradesman’s / developer’s initial project or side-line.

The property is in the centre of the Scottish Borders town of Duns. Duns itself offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and a great variety of recreational facilities, including a golf course, swimming pool, rugby club, football club, bowling club, gym and children's play centre. Other amenities include an excellent medical centre, several denominations of churches, 2 petrol stations with vehicle repairs, an independent builders’ merchants, garden centre and a comprehensive range of other businesses and services located on the industrial estate and throughout the town. There is a supermarket in town and most larger supermarkets offer home delivery in the area. There is a modern state-of-the-art High School and a new primary school which opened in 2017. Nearby tourist attraction includes a museum dedicated to the famous Formula One driver Jim Clark that reopened in 2019 after being extensively renovated. The surrounding areas are very popular with salmon fishing on the river tweed, trout fishing on local lochs and rivers along with grouse and pheasant shooting at several local estates. Other nearby attractions include the Wedderburn Castle and Duns Castle which are both wedding and events venues and Manderston House; an opulent Edwardian country house with its famous silver staircase and gardens that are open to the public. Transport and getting around: Set on a bus route between Berwick upon Tweed approx. 14 miles to the east and Galashiels approx. 28 miles to the west. Both these towns offer rail links to Edinburgh, the line from Berwick being the main East Coast Line.
