An extensive plot currently occupied by a single story two-bedroom prefabricated bungalow built in the 1950’s located close to the high street of the beautiful Borders town of Innerleithen.
Not currently habitable in its current structural condition, the property occupying this generous plot is now in need of complete refurbishment which would include significant structural work and cost. With this in mind, demolishment and re-development would be best suited for this plot, and would be subject to the necessary planning and building consents. A wonderful opportunity for someone to design and create the ideal property.
The internal accommodation of the current building occupying this plot comprises; entrance hallway with a large walk-in storage cupboard and a separate WC. Immediately to your right is a good-sized sitting room with windows to the front and side of the property and a door which leads through to the kitchen. The kitchen has a window to the side of the property and an external door giving access out to the rear gardens. The property has two good sized double bedrooms, one with a window to the front of the front and the other to the rear. Completing the accommodation is the bathroom which has a rear facing window.
Externally there are extensive private garden grounds to the front side and rear of the property. The front garden is laid with gravel, and enclosed via a timber fence incorporating timber gates giving access to a driveway at the side of the property. The extensive rear garden is laid to lawn and is bound by a mixture of stone walling and timber fencing.
