Offers In The Region Of £105,000
2 Hardacres Farm Cottages offers an exciting opportunity as a renovation project for the DIY enthusiast, with huge scope for development and upgrading. This semi-detached cottage is situated in lovely position, enjoying outlooks over the surrounding farmland whilst only a short driving distance to the nearby towns of Kelso, Greenlaw and Duns where a full range of local amenities are available.

Entrance Hallway, Lounge with Large Store/Study Area, Kitchen, Bathroom and Three Bedrooms. Garden and Private Parking
The lounge benefits from good proportions and a lovely outlook over the garden to the front as well as good natural light thanks to the southerly aspect. An open fire currently provides a central point and a door to the rear opens into a very useful sizeable store, which could also possibly be utilised as an occasional study area with rear windows. From the lounge there is access to the kitchen and in turn the bathroom. The kitchen overlooks the area of garden to the side of the cottage; the bathroom has a window on the same side and this section of the accommodation and offers obvious scope for reconfiguration. The third bedroom enjoys a similar aspect as the lounge, overlooking the garden and benefits from built in storage; equally well suited to use as a dining room if preferred.
Both bedrooms on the upper floor are nicely sized double rooms; the main bedroom has a large window overlooking the garden to the side, towards Hume Castle in the distance and benefits from built in storage. Bedroom two has plenty of natural light thanks to the velux window to the south side, as does the landing.
The main area of garden extends to the front with a southerly aspect and open farmland beyond. There is plenty of space and scope for the gardening enthusiast or could be re-landscaped for easy maintenance. A further area to the side of the cottage currently sites the detached garage and provides space for parking whilst a small area of lawned garden extends to the rear.
