Beechhurst is a first floor flat within a divided Victorian mansion house dating from c1850. The property enjoys an idyllic location with attractive grounds and private gardens to side and has an attractive sandstone frontage, crow stepped gables, bay windows and castellated central tower. Unusually for an out of town property there is the advantage of mains gas believed to been provided at the insistence of the original mansion owner who had some influence as proprietor of the Hawick Gas Company!
Beechhurst is set back off the road from Hawick to Bonchester Bridge with the original lodge house at the entrance and drive to the house set in surrounding grounds. A true country setting just two miles from the town centre. Hawick has a large range of shops and supermarkets (Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Lidl & Aldi), restaurants, schools, sports centre, theatre and cinema complex and the much acclaimed Wilton Lodge Park. The Borders Railway at Galashiels and Tweedbank lies 20 minutes away providing a rail link to the heart of Edinburgh with the main A7 some 30 miles to Carlisle and good links to airports with both Newcastle and Edinburgh within a 70 mile radius.
The property enters off an enclosed staircase to the rear off the building next to courtyard and parking with a conservatory/sitting area shared with the neighbouring flat at half landing providing a lovely place to relax and take in the pleasant outlooks. The flat entrance has an attractive timber surround with leaded part glazed door and side panels providing good natural light to the hall with its high ceiling and door off to the lounge. The hall includes fitted bookcase and extends the length of the property with hatch to attic storage above. The dining kitchen is a good size with a large window overlooking the woodland garden to rear and includes a range of units and has a high ceiling with cornicing. The lounge is a key feature and lies to the front with an attractive outlook over the main lawn, panelled dual aspect windows, oak fireplace with retro “Art Nouveau” style inlay, high ceiling and cornicing. The bedroom accommodation includes three bedrooms; the master bedroom at the far end includes a corner window seat within the crow stepped elevation with outlooks to the adjoining paddocks, high ceiling, original cornicing and contemporary built-in bedroom furniture. There are two further bedrooms, both of which are double rooms, one to the front and one to the side, and two bathrooms with the family bathroom including a Jacuzzi bath and shower with a separate WC off the hall next to the utility/office.
The grounds include an extensive lawned frontage which is owned and maintained by the main door flat and provides a lovely outlook with sheltering mature trees. The drive winds round past the side garden to the flat entrance at the rear of the building with parking and courtyard. A garden path leads off the courtyard to a summerhouse next to the side drive with decked sitting area and a private area of woodland garden with an area of lawn and borders to side.
A timber garage, one of four in a line of garages, lies off the main entrance drive with light, power and space for a workshop.
