2 Bed Cottage - Semi Detached
Offers Over £114,000
Sitting quietly off the main thoroughfare of Selkirk with outlooks across the town and valleys below, this beautifully restored Victorian stone-built property blends retained features with an artsy-inspired interior - resulting in a bright and chic home perfect for a first time buyer or as a holiday investment.
From working shutters over sash windows, a stained glass porthole window, open fires with traditional surrounds, a fitted roll top bath and period flourishes throughout, there’s a lot to love at 123 Forest Road. The owners have found a super balance to bring out the most of these features, while pairing them with a stripped back feel of wood floors and original doors, with colour pops from soft furnishings against neutral walls..
Two public rooms provide a comfortable lounge and separate family dining space with newly fitted open plan kitchen - both benefitting excellent levels of light with a triple aspect in the family room. Upstairs, two double bedrooms are well appointed with inbuilt storage, with a recently finished contemporary shower and a separate bathroom room with Victorian inspired décor across the hall. Low maintenance outdoor space is provided by seating area to the front, ideal for potted plants, with a shared green to the rear and access to the stone built workshop which doubles as both storage and a utility area, fully lined with fitted electric.
The property is ideally placed within Selkirk for all town centre amenities; with a good selection of small local shops providing for everyday requirements, and schools from nursery to secondary level all easily accessible. The property also benefits from easy access to Edinburgh via the A7 and is within easy reach of the new Borders rail connections with the opening of the Waverley Line and new stations at Galashiels and Tweedbank.
