Ideally placed in an enviable position with extensive garden grounds, Greengates is centred in the heart of the community of Ettrickbridge - and With easy access to glorious countryside and endless outdoor pursuits, the property is well connected with the vibrant market towns of Selkirk and Hawick. The detached property has been beautifully upgraded and renovated by the current owners, and now presents as a contemporary and stylish home for a family, offering an adaptable layout to suit a variety of needs.

With a choice of public rooms on the ground floor, the main entrance opens to a welcoming hall with attractive wall panelling and access on one side to two well-appointed, ground level bedrooms, each enjoying restorative outlooks across the garden. The striking entertaining dining room is positioned to opposite side of the hall, leading on to the reception areas beyond.
