With a truly picturesque setting and south facing aspect, the location is as serene as it is convenient; with open outlooks over rolling countryside and endless greenery, with a sheltering woodland backdrop and stone wall boundary, this super central position lies just 20 minutes from the A68 leading to Edinburgh and is ideally located for easy travel to the further Border towns.
Sitting just outside the popular villages of Westruther and Lauder in a quiet hamlet of largely traditional properties, the location is perfect for those looking to take advantage of the surrounding countryside and a rural lifestyle, whilst remaining well connected for modern living and family requirement.
