Honeysuckle House sits in the heart of the village of Roxburgh, well back off a quiet road with south facing garden looking over to the historic Roxburgh Kirk. The house enjoys good natural light provided by dual aspect windows and French door off the spacious dining lounge with an open plan kitchen and a front porch looking over the garden, a study or downstairs bedroom, a second sitting room and four principal bedrooms, including master with en-suite with bath and shower, and a separate family bathroom. A further selling point is the detached double garage set to the side as well as the setting with an edge-of-countryside village location with fine views on all sides.

The picturesque village of Roxburgh offers the benefits of country living whilst being within easy reach of the shops and other amenities in Kelso some four miles east. Kelso itself, which lies at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers, is one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders. Notable features are the 12th Century Abbey, the Flemish style cobbled square, Floors Castle and the old bridge across the Tweed. The town has good educational and sporting facilities and many quality shops. The area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with Tweed fishing, National Hunt racing and walking in the nearby Cheviot Hills.

From Kelso, take the A699 road to St Boswells. Passing the Kelso Showground, take the bridge over the River Teviot and after a mile or so, turn left to Roxburgh with the village some further two miles. On entering the village, Honeysuckle House is situated on the left hand side, set well back from the road, directly opposite the Church.
