West Grove is situated on the edge of the small town of Duns which lies in the heart of the Berwickshire countryside, about 15 miles due west of Berwick-upon-Tweed. The area is one of the genuinely rural parts of Great Britain, despite its relative proximity to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, and offers a quality of life that is becoming increasingly sought after. Duns is a friendly town with a thriving and strong community spirit.

The property is within a short walk of Duns Market Square with its excellent range of amenities, including shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and professional services.

Duns has a well-respected High School and Primary School, and a range of nursery provision. West Grove is within minutes of Duns Castle Nature Reserve, an area of beautiful woodland and lake paths, offering a paradise for dog walkers and bird watchers.
Duns has an 18-hole golf club, swimming pool, tennis courts, rugby and football clubs and a sports centre affording multiple activities for children and adults. The local community-run Volunteer Hall has become a hub for cultural entertainment, with films, plays, musicals, concerts, clubs and social events. Each July, in common with other Border towns, Duns holds its own civic celebrations (Reiver’s Week), marked by mass ride-outs around the town and into the countryside, led by Duns Pipe Band.

The surrounding area provides excellent opportunities for the country sports enthusiast. There is salmon fishing on the River Tweed, trout fishing in various local lochs and pheasant and grouse shooting on local estates. There are several good golf courses in easy reach, including Duns Golf Club, Goswick Golf Club, Dunbar, and the championship Roxburgh course near Kelso. 

Berwick-upon-Tweed, which is within a short drive, is a vibrant town with a good range of national services and retailers and has several hotels, restaurants, pubs and wine bars. There is the popular Maltings Theatre and Cinema as well as a number of galleries and arts and crafts shops. Berwick also offers private schooling from ages 3 to 18 at Longridge Towers School (

Duns has good transport links with the A1 trunk road only 14 miles away and the mainline railway station at Berwick-upon-Tweed providing a fast link to London Kings Cross (3h 39mins), Edinburgh (43 mins), Newcastle (45 mins) and Leeds (2h 19 mins). Edinburgh and Newcastle airports have regular flights to London and a variety of domestic and foreign destinations. The new Borders Railway from Tweedbank near Galashiels connects directly to Edinburgh Waverley.

General Description


West Grove is an elegant, stone-built family home offering generous and well-proportioned accommodation of circa 271 sq. metres over three floors, with some period features throughout. By virtue of its southerly position the house benefits from a light and bright atmosphere.

The property is accessed through the front door into a vestibule and from here there is access into the central hall, with a staircase to the first floor and doors leading off. The property benefits from three public rooms; a large living room with a bay window and an open fire as its focal point, a generous sunroom and a well-proportioned dining room, again with a large window affording a view over the mature garden grounds. The kitchen is located at the rear of the property, with a range of wall and base units, some integrated appliances and ample space for a breakfast table. Completing the ground floor is a cloakroom/WC.

A staircase from the ground floor leads up to the first-floor landing where there are two generous double bedrooms and a single room/office. Supporting the bedroom accommodation is a shower room. 

A further staircase leads up from the landing to the second floor where a further two generous double bedrooms can be found.

The house has gas-fired central heating throughout together with a mixture of single, secondary and double-glazed windows.

The property would benefit from internal modernisation and is being sold with no forward chain.
