2 Bed Cottage - Terraced
Offers Over £115,000
11 Gourlays Wynd is a very quaint and traditional end terraced cottage which enjoys a peaceful location close to the grounds of Duns Castle and also within easy walking distance of the town centre and local amenities. The quirky cottage offers accommodation extending over two floors with some lovely period features to enjoy, not least the original range fireplaces in the lounge and main bedroom. The walled courtyard garden to the rear is a real sun trap and with access off the kitchen, offers plenty of scope for patio furniture and summer dining. For those seeking a unique, characterful cottage, this property is bound to appeal and is likely to lend itself to use as a holiday let, as an easy to maintain weekend bolt hole or for those looking to downsize and move into town from out-with.
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.

The staircase leads to a pleasant landing area with deep window over the stairs and further rear facing window on the landing. The main bedroom is a well-proportioned double room with window over the courtyard to the rear, good built in storage as well as the original range fireplace to one wall.
