Quietly positioned in an enviable countryside spot just 4 miles from the town of Hawick, Teinsideburn is a charming detached cottage dating back to 1850 - and aptly named being surrounded by glorious country and riverside walks. Settled in large mature grounds, the property offers spacious living accommodation with retained original features, and three well appointed bedrooms, including luxurious master with ensuite and dressing room. The outdoor space is the real selling point, and provides scope for further development with excellent levels of privacy, as well as peace, quiet and those fantastic views.
The property lies off a country road, set just off the A7 to Hawick. Hawick is a traditional Borders town, steeped in history and with strong links to the textiles industry. The town is the largest in the Borders and constantly adapting and improving to provide for residents in the town and many surrounding villages. Hawick boosts a growing high street, with a variety of independent shops and retailers, as well as major supermarkets, banks, medical centres and schooling from nursery to secondary. The annual ‘Common Riding’ festivities, held in June each year, are based on a historical event in 1514 and is a highlight in the annual calendar of events, which includes various festivals, and the town has a proud rugby tradition. Local distances are 50 miles to Edinburgh, 30 miles to Carlisle, and 70 miles to Newcastle.
The surrounding gardens are designed to take advantage of the unique location and outlooks, with mature hedging and sheltering trees providing effective screening and privacy. There are a variety of seating areas, with patio and pergola, a neat lawn to the front, with further lawned garden to the rear with raised beds and gravelled pathways. The property includes a greenhouse, two adjoining stone work rooms, a double garage, as well as private parking and turning space.
A generous drive leads to the entrance to the cottage; with mature gardens to the side and rear, enclosed by hedging and with ample parking and turning space. Enjoying a gently elevated position, there are lovely outlooks across the hills, with a pathway to the main entrance and vestibule. The property retains a host of original features; with the living room a particularly comfortable room with open fire and attractive surround, timber beams and astragal paned sash and casement windows providing a bright dual aspect. The adjoining kitchen is also finished in a country cottage style, fitted with an excellent range of wall and base units, original floor tiles, integrated appliances and allowing plenty space for dining furnishings – with a useful utility room to the side opening directly to the garden. Also at ground level, two well appointed and spacious double bedrooms, with a neighbouring family bathroom, fully fitted and presented in good order. The first floor hosts the exceptionally generous master bedroom; bright and airy, benefitting en suite shower room and separate dressing room.
