Huntspool offers a great opportunity to purchase a generously proportioned family home in the central borders. The property allows flexible living space, with accommodation presented over three floors, and while it has been modernised by the current owners, the property retains a great deal of charm and character. This continues outside, where the landscaped garden opens from the split stair off the hall, to a cleverly levelled lawn with colourful borders and entertaining areas.

There are nearby sporting activities in the surrounding area including golf, fishing and horse riding along, with walking on the Earlston circular Jubilee Walk which takes in some superb local views. Local facilities include a variety of independent shops, hotels, a post office and newly opened Coop supermarket.
