We are delighted to offer this charming two-bedroom semi-detached cottage located in the much sought-after village of Stow. Dating from the 1850s, the property now provides the perfect blend of old and new and boasts an unexpectedly large, mature garden and generous parking area, all just 10 minutes walk from Stow Train Station.



The property is entered via a multi-locking front door into a warm and welcoming hallway. The hallway leads through to a spacious sitting room with a woodburner in the original fireplace and large window. There is ample space for free-standing furniture and dining table. A door from the sitting room leads through to the kitchen, with its own entrance door providing access from the driveway. There is a lean-to conservatory to the rear of the property, linking the sitting room with the outside porch. A staircase from the hallway leads to a very spacious landing, which in-turn provides access to two bedrooms and the family bathroom.


The attractive kitchen is fitted with a wide range of shaker-style wall and base cabinetry overlaid with high-quality wooden worktops incorporating a Belfast sink with mixer tap. A central island provides a further surface for preparing meals as well as a breakfast bar/seating. There is an integrated oven and hob and room for a free-standing washing machine, dishwasher and an upright fridge/freezer.


The generous sized bathroom is fitted with a modern 3-piece suite including WC, vanity basin and free standing bath with mixer shower attachment. There is a separate shower cubicle with overhead shower. There is a chrome heated towel radiator and a large storage cupboard.


There are generous garden grounds to the rear of the property which have been extensively landscaped to provide a wonderful outdoor entertaining space. The gardens include mature trees, beautiful established flowers and shrubs and a winding stone pathway over the lawn leading to the upper terrace, which enjoys magnificent views over the village and beyond across the rugged Scottish Borders landscape. There is a decked area ideal for entertaining and an enclosed chicken run at the rear of the gardens, perfect for those looking for the 'Good Life'. The side of the property is laid to gravel providing a generous driveway but also another seating area closer to the house.


There is a corrugated iron garage with a lean-to and a further shed in the garden.


The village of Stow is nestled in the rolling Scottish Borders countryside just 25 miles south of Edinburgh via the A7 Trunk Road, and is within easy reach of many of the central Borders towns including Galashiels and Lauder. The village benefits from a vibrant community and plenty local amenities including its own railway station (between Tweedbank and Edinburgh), primary school, village shop (with post office), play park, multi-sports court, bowling club, health centre and town hall. The village has known to play host to a variety of family orientated events in recent years including the 'Stowed Out' music festival.

Galashiels (7 miles south) has a full range of amenities including large supermarkets, clothes shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, cinema and further educational facilities including the Galashiels Academy, Borders College and Heriot Watt University Campus. The Tweed Valley is also very close-by for world-class Mountain Biking. Other popular outdoor pursuits in the Borders area include hill walking, fishing, golf and rugby.
