Description

Light and tastefully presented, two-bedroom, semi-detached cottage, with gardens, set on a generous corner plot. With an idyllic rural location, in the small village of Heriot in the Scottish Borders. A welcoming entrance vestibule opens into the carpeted hallway which affords access throughout the property and offers space for outerwear. Set to the front, a spacious living room features an electric fire, carpeted flooring, a central light fitting and a press cupboard. To the rear, set off the living room, with a built-in storage cupboard, the kitchen is fitted with wall and base units, wood effect worktops, a sink with drainer and a tiled surround. Appliances include a recently replaced integrated oven and electric hob; as well as a freestanding fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and a recently replaced washing machine. Whilst set off the kitchen, a sunroom provides plentiful natural light and access to the garden. Two double bedrooms are set to opposite aspects, similarly well-sized and finished, with light neutral decor, carpeted flooring, central light fittings and deep built-in wardrobes. Completing the accommodation, the bathroom is fitted with a three-piece suite including a recently replaced electric shower over the bath and tiled splash walls.

Heriot is a small rural village in the Moorfoot Hills of the Scottish Borders, roughly halfway between Edinburgh and Galashiels, in the heart of the countryside. Out of earshot and sight from the A7, twenty minutes drive from the Edinburgh City bypass, and with two Borders Railway stations just ten minutes away at Stow and Gorebridge, there is a busy village hall, and a well-run country primary school whilst the surrounding area is perfect for walking, cycling and riding. Nearby Lauder offers facilities including a post office, banking and supermarket, whilst Galashiels has all the local amenities expected of a sizeable town, including local shopping, a cinema, swimming pool, two large 24-hour supermarkets, restaurants and cafés. Within, a half an hour’s drive, Straiton Retail Park provides a Sainsbury’s supermarket, Boots, an M&S food store and other high-street names along with one of Scotland’s two IKEA stores.
