The property, which benefits from parking directly outside, is only a short walk from a number of amenities including a Co-op, Post Office, café, two public houses and a restaurant.

The subjects comprise an attractive building which has been renovated and maintained to a high standard throughout.

Ormiston’s unique War memorial stands at the entrance to Cockburn Halls and provides a striking entrance to Cockburn Halls 1.
