11 Shawpark Road is a charming period property; thoughtfully upgraded and converted to offer an ideal family home in a well maintained residential area within Selkirk. This two storey apartment is incredibly spacious and blends traditional features with the comforts of modern family life perfectly. The first floor enjoys high ceilings and wonderful levels of light; with original cornicing, an open fireplace in the lounge, and generous room proportions. The attic conversion offers a flexible space as two double bedrooms or is ideal as a work or hobby space - with good head height and large velux windows providing lovely outlooks across the town and countryside beyond. The property is well presented and stylish throughout, with the added benefit of an enclosed garden to the rear with lawn, summerhouse and garage.
The property is ideally placed within Selkirk for all town centre amenities, with a good selection of independent 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 nearby stations at Galashiels and Tweedbank. The area also has good road and bus connections to all central Borders towns and is surrounded by beautiful countryside with rolling hills and scenic valleys all close to hand.
A fantastic enclosed garden to the rear, with attractive planted border and courtyard style seating area, ideal for making the most of the morning sun. The garden is mostly laid to lawn, with planted borders and garden shed, sheltered by boundary wall and surrounding mature trees, with the added benefit of a timber garage, coal house and lovely summerhouse.
11 Shawpark Road enjoys a quiet position at the end of a charming row of Victorian sandstone properties; with a gated entrance to the rear opening to the garden, and leading to stone external steps. A spacious entrance hall provides access to an extended and fully fitted breakfasting kitchen; well appointed and quietly positioned to the rear, fitted with a good selection of wall, base and display units with integrated appliances and ample space for dining furnishings. A lovely dual aspect in the kitchen allows natural light and the room is finished in a neutral décor with the original stripped doors creating a country kitchen feel. Adjacent, the bathroom is well presented with the benefit of under floor heating and fitted with a three piece suite with shower over the bath, tiled splash backs and flooring, and window to the rear. There is an abundance of storage throughout the property, and a large linen cupboard lies conveniently opposite the family bathroom. The lounge is a particularly well proportioned room, enjoying the traditional features of the period property and retaining the character with a magnificent bay window, high ceiling and coving and a focal fireplace. Also on the first floor, the spacious master bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room, and is decorated in neutral tones. A second double bedroom is positioned quietly to the rear, with a large window overlooking the garden and ample space for freestanding furnishings.
The attic has been cleverly converted and now hosts a flexible space with a further double bedroom and adaptable studio space lending itself well as an office, snug or fourth bedroom; fitted with velux skylights allowing natural light and offering lovely outlooks across the town and countryside beyond. Excellent storage within the eves has also been created, making it an enviable space for families.
