Full description

1 Rachel Drive is a well-designed four bedroomed detached house occupying a corner plot in this popular residential street in Duns. The house has generous and bright accommodation with a study, lavatory, reception room, kitchen diner and conservatory on the ground floor and four double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. There are front, side and rear gardens and off street parking to the front of the house. The property is double glazed throughout and heated via a gas combination boiler. The house offers a spacious family home and is designed for modern living.
Rachel Drive is a popular residential area of Duns which is the county town of Berwickshire and has a range of local services with shops, a co-op supermarket, doctors surgery, pharmacy, cottage hospital and both primary and secondary schooling. Of note is the new Berwickshire High School, recently constructed and with state of the art facilities. The town has many attractions including the Jim Clark Memorial Rooms, public parks, walking in the grounds of Duns Castle and is home to the Jim Clark Rally.

The larger centre of Berwick upon Tweed is some 16 miles away and provides a full range of services including sports and arts centres, high street banks, national retailers, cafes and bars. The town also has a mainline railway station on the East Coast line with direct connections to Edinburgh and Newcastle (approximately 45 mins) and London (approximately 31/2 hours). The road links are excellent with Edinburgh being accessible within an hour and the A1 close at hand providing access to the national road network.

The Eastern Borders has a rich and colourful history and offers a wealth of sporting and recreational opportunities. There are a number of excellent links and inland golf courses including those at Duns, Eyemouth, Dunbar, The Hirsel and The Roxburghe and race courses at both Kelso and Musselburgh. Despite its proximity to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, the area has a low population and therefore offers a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare. The River Tweed and its tributaries provide internationally acclaimed sea trout and salmon fishing and there is also good trout fishing available locally. The area is generally renowned for the quality of its field sports and the East Coast provides dramatic scenery, with magnificent beaches and opportunities for sailing, sea fishing, swimming and diving.
