0 Bed Land - Residential Department
Offers Over £50,000
A rare prospect for a residential conversion or development site within an established Berwickshire village with good road connections to Edinburgh.
Located at the end of Mill Wynd which is a quiet no through lane, the former function hall and masonic lodge offers a rare chance for those seeking a development or conversion opportunity in an established village setting. The building has plenty of kerb appeal with several original features still on show including what would have been an original arched access in addition to the hayloft area above. Having once been renowned for its Saturday night social dances, the interior of the property is sizeable with two large halls, lounge area, two bars, kitchen and WC facilities. The building itself with it characterful street frontage could offer a very unique opportunity to convert and develop into a one off family home, but equally due to the scale of the building/site there could also be scope for conversion or the creation of a number of smaller residential units
There is fire escape access around the side of the building and an area of private parking opposite the building.
The village of Greenlaw is located approximately 6 miles south of Duns in the Scottish Borders and only 40 miles south-east of Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh. The property is located to the east of The Square directly opposite the former Town Hall.
It enjoys a wide rural catchment area from its position on the A698 which eventually joins the A1 north of Newcastle via Coldstream. The nearest mainline rail station, meanwhile, is at Berwick-upon-Tweed and only 25 miles from Greenlaw.
Local schooling in the area is excellent for families looking to relocate to the area. Greenlaw Primary School and Gordon Primary School are both in close proximity with the new £20m Berwickshire High School within 15 minutes’ drive.
There are some amenities in Greenlaw including a pharmacy, restaurant/bar and shop but neighbouring Duns offers a wider variety of shops, cafes and businesses.
The property itself is thought to be suitable for redevelopment for residential use, or alternatively the site could be cleared in anticipation of development, subject to the necessary consents being obtained but interested parties are advised to satisfy themselves as to the position as no warranty is given by the Seller as to this.
