Dating from 1830, the property has five bedrooms with additional attic bedrooms providing versatile accommodation over three floors, which create a magnificent family home or business opportunity.

Only one and a half miles from the aforementioned Borders Railway, which runs to Edinburgh, it is conveniently located for commuting, and sits in a strong primary and secondary school catchment, with private schooling also in the town.
Edinburgh is also easily accessible via the A68, or the A7 with most Borders towns readily available from this central location.
