About the property
Located just off the town centre and enjoying a peaceful position within this small and established cul de sac, detached bungalows such as this are a rare find, particularly in such a convenient and accessible location. For a retiree or perhaps those downsizing and moving into town from out-with, this bungalow is bound to appeal. The property itself offers well-proportioned accommodation throughout which enjoys plenty of natural light and pleasant outlooks over the surrounding gardens. Whilst some aspects would now benefit from general modernisation and cosmetic upgrading, the building itself seems to have been well maintained and now offers an opportunity for the purchaser to carry out the modernisation to their own design and specification. The gardens which extend around the bungalow are neatly presented and benefit from good privacy with a woodland back drop to the rear.
Duns has good educational and recreational facilities including primary and secondary schools, swimming pool, tennis courts, 18 hole golf course, library, various speciality shops and walks and nature reserve within the grounds of Duns Castle and is home to the classical Edwardian Mansion at Manderston. Edinburgh is 45 miles away with the main East Coast rail line at Berwick upon Tweed some 15 miles distant.
•Extremely Convenient Town Centre Location
•Garage and Off Street Parking

The entrance door opens into a surprisingly spacious hallway which enjoys good natural light thanks to the floor to ceiling front window and internal glazed panels. From the hall the lounge extends to the front of the property; this room is of good proportions with plenty of sunlight thanks to the large floor to ceiling window at the front and additional side window. From here there is access to the adjoining dining room which provides plenty of space for a large table and chairs, an ideal space for dinner parties and entertaining, particularly as the kitchen lies next door. The kitchen itself is fitted with a good range of quality wooden wall and base units with space for slot in appliances, a back door connecting to the garden and a large rear window affording pleasant outlooks. Also enjoying a pleasant aspect; the garden room has windows on three sides and benefits from an external door allowing direct access to the side garden. Both bedrooms are particularly well proportioned double rooms, one located to the front and the other overlooking the rear garden. Built in wardrobes in both rooms provide excellent storage whilst the centrally positioned shower room features a walk in shower with disabled access, white WC and pedestal sink.

The gardens extend around the bungalow and offer good privacy with a pleasant woodland backdrop at the rear.

An area thought to have previously been a vegetable patch provides scope for those that wish to grow their own with greenhouse to the side.
