The Old School House is a charming period house situated in a particularly stunning part of the Scottish Borders which is in excellent condition throughout, with an abundance of period charm and character. The property extends to circa 214 sq. meters and benefits from a light and bright atmosphere and generous and flexible accommodation.

Accessed from the gravelled parking area, the front door leads into an entrance vestibule, an ideal place for muddy boots and coats and from here there is access through to the hallway. The accommodation on the ground floor of The Old School House flows naturally from room to room and offers two generous reception rooms, both with outlooks to the front and fireplaces. There is a well-equipped kitchen, large enough to accommodate informal dining and a useful larder and utility cupboard. Completing the ground floor is a recently re-fitted shower room.

Off the reception hallway, a staircase leads to the first floor landing where all accommodation can be accessed. There are three generous double bedrooms, a fourth bedroom which is currently utilised as a walk in wardrobe and a shower room.

The accommodation within the house is beautifully presented, with tasteful decor. There are quality fixtures and fittings and period features including cornicing, panelled doors, deep skirting and fireplaces. There is oil fired central heating throughout and the house has double glazed sash and case windows. All rooms offer views over surrounding countryside and the house is very private.


To the front of the property there is a gravelled driveway, comfortably providing parking for several vehicles. There is also a detached garage, with double timber doors and light and power.


The garden is located to the front of the property, is south facing and backs onto open farmland. The garden is mature and well maintained and comprises a large lawned area with mature hedging, fruit trees, established shrub and flower beds and a large gravelled terrace, ideal for al-fresco dining.
