About the property
‘Oakley’ is a substantial detached stone built property which benefits from a fabulous outlook at the rear to the south taking in The Cheviots in the distance. The interior is of good proportions as you would expect from a property of this nature and provides a flexible layout with bathroom facilities on both floors and the option of a downstairs bedroom if required. There are elements that would now benefit from general upgrading and modernisation but with scope to make a fabulous family home. The garden to the rear is an excellent space and thanks to the southerly aspect they enjoy sun throughout the day not to mention fabulous views down the valley.
Local shopping, primary and nursery schooling is available at Chirnside with the main shops and the east coast rail connection some 12 miles away at Berwick upon Tweed. The county town of Duns is five miles west with its recently built state of the art secondary school while Edinburgh is approx 50 miles and one hour by car via the A1. The area is famous for country pursuits with fishing on the nearby Whiteadder Water and the famous River Tweed and provides ideal walking and horse country in the Cheviot and Lammermuir hills.
