About the property
Enjoying a fabulous, semi rural spot ‘Claddagh House’ is a very well appointed and immaculately presented detached bungalow. The property enjoys fabulous outlooks to the rear over the lovingly tended gardens and towards the Cheviots in the distance; due to this south facing aspect the bungalow and the gardens enjoy sun for much of the day. The accommodation is nicely proportioned and has been upgraded in recent years to provide, replacement oak doors throughout as well as stylish and contemporary kitchen and bathroom fittings. The outside space is a real delight; the gardens are beautifully kept and enjoy excellent degrees of privacy. This bungalow presents the perfect opportunity for those that are looking for a rural yet accessible location with the lovely village of Allanton within only a mile and half.
Allanton is well located with the Berwickshire coast and Berwick upon Tweed approximately ten miles east and with Edinburgh and Newcastle approximately one hour distant via the recently upgraded A1 or by rail via the main East Coast rail connection at Berwick where London is also within only a few hours commute.

Allanton itself has a popular village inn and restaurant and a village hall.
