Jedburgh is justifiably known as the ‘Jewel of the Borders’; a traditional market square town, surrounded with stunning rolling Border’s countryside. The town benefits from a variety of independent shops, restaurants, a swimming pool, fitness centre, Community & Arts Centre and is well positioned for leisure activities with a Golf Course and strong Rugby following. There are two primary schools and a secondary school; with private schooling and local college available nearby. The Burgh of Jedburgh lies ten miles north of the border with England, with its Augustan Red Stone Abbey nestled on the banks of the Jed Water, and further historic roots and attractions including Mary Queen of Scots House and gardens, and the Old Castle Jail. Jedburgh is well situated with swift road links to both major airports at Edinburgh and Newcastle, the main east coast railway line is 35 miles distant at Berwick upon Tweed, and Borders Rail connection at Tweedbank close by.
Set back from the main thoroughfare of the town, Lanton road ascends gently out of the town, and provides fantastic panoramic outlooks and a quiet edge-of-town location. A driveway with space for several cars opens to the everyday entrance for the property, which opens directly to the kitchen and living space, with further paving leading round to the front of the property and opening to the main entrance. A traditional vestibule fitted with Victorian tiling and great coat and boot storage leads to the hallway; where the décor and elegant tone is set for the rest of the property.
Both drawing room and dining room are positioned to the front, with large windows making the most of the stunning views and providing exceptional levels of light to these already fresh and spacious rooms. Both public rooms are finished in cream tones, with fitted carpet, wall coverings and deep coving and skirting’s; with the drawing room cornicing a particularly impressive retained feature. Both rooms enjoy the generous floor space of a property of this style, with traditional working fireplaces and timber panelled windows creating pleasant focal points and blending well with more contemporary touches. A third reception room, currently used as an office and sitting room, is quietly positioned to the rear; a very comfortable and informal living space with open fire and window to the side, and would lend itself well as a ground floor bedroom or perhaps playroom. A useful cloakroom facility lies adjacent to the public rooms, fully fitted with W/C, washhand basin and neutral décor.
Kitchen & Living Room
Situated towards the rear of the property, with outlooks onto Lanton road, this open plan living room and kitchen is ideal for family living or informal entertaining. The living room benefits from a lovely wood burning stove, with recessed log store and
tiled hearth, and there is ample space for freestanding furnishings - perfect as a relaxed dayroom.
The kitchen is fully fitted with cream fronted wall and base units; with a four burner hob and extraction over, eye-level oven and grill, space and plumbing for further kitchen appliances. There is adequate room for breakfasting table and sideboard, with the room again incorporating a neutral colour scheme with blue feature elements such as the worktops, patterned floor, splash back and blind. A useful utility opens off and partly glazed country style door provides access outside.
A cream carpeted staircase with complimenting wall coverings and handrail open to a spacious landing; tastefully decorated in continuous tones with original wood stripped doors, deep coving and skirting’s and an astragal banister. A charming retained feature on the split landing, originating to the former two houses, opens to a useful storage area and second staircase leading down to an external door. The four principal bedrooms lie on the first floor and are wonderfully grand in their proportions. The master boasts excellent floor space and a wonderful bay window, synonymous with the Victorian build, with intricate cornicing, recessed display shelving, and a dual aspect providing enviable outlooks across the town. The further three bedrooms are all generous doubles, presented in excellent condition with traditional washhand basins in each and the third benefitting from an en suite shower room facility. The attic space has also been cleverly converted, and is home to two further double bedrooms; both with generous floor space and head height, fitted carpeting, radiators, velux windows, and fitted with washhand basin. The attic space would also lend itself well as a hobby or work space, with excellent in-built storage in both.
Adjacent to the bedrooms, and in addition to the ground floor cloakroom and en suite facility, a luxurious family bathroom lies on the first floor; fully fitted with enamel bath and tiled surround, and a freestanding pressure shower with curved glazed door and screen. A large modesty glazed window allows natural light, with monochrome floor tiling and corresponding border on splash backs, creating a contemporary feel. Fitted with under floor heating, heated towel rail and spotlighting.
A good sized garden, proportionate to the size of the house, encircles the property and is enclosed by stone walling. There is a good amount of privacy and scope to develop the outdoor space further, and at present the garden is mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubbery, with a pleasant seating area opening directly from the kitchen. The garden also benefits a lean-to wood store, greenhouse and further stone outhouse ideal for storage. A footpath from the front lawn cuts further down lanton road; perfect for quick access into town.
