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.

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.
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.
