Apartment 1 -
This 2 bedroom property is located in the original delivery point of the coal which fed the three boilers. The fuel was brought to the protecting canopy, a sloped concrete form, from which point it was lifted up to feed the three hoppers. The sloped form has been continued in glazing, to form a terrace at level one and "winter garden" at ground level.

The property is entered at the north east corner of the site from the timber deck, and the vestibule leads straight into an open plan kitchen living room space. This space has sliding doors to the winter garden which could serve as dining or seating area. WC and shower with window serve this level. A stair leads you up to the first floor to a double bedroom which itself leads out onto an outside terrace. The flight of stairs continues up to a bedroom with en-suite WC and shower room on the second floor.

The five solar panels belonging to this property are located at the east end of the property 2 roof. An exhaust air heat pump is located within the run of kitchen units and provides energy-efficient heating for the whole property. The property also benefits from a basement hopper storage area.

Gross internal floor area 74 m2 / 796 ft2.

Guide Price 205,000

Overview of development -
This unique property is carved out of the sculptural concrete Boilerhouse form. This property has its own dedicated front door. Tailored to the Borders climate, each residential unit benefits from a "winter garden" space, a glazed area to capture the southern rays of the sun. To warm the heart of the project the central units each have an integral wood-burning stove with an "inglenook" seating area designed around the focus of the space. The stove flues vent to the outside via the original chimney, keeping the original function of the Boilerhouse alive. Making use of renewable energy technologies, each property is served by a heat pump, and supplemented by solar panels mounted on the roof. The Boilerhouse Project has its own dedicated off-street car parking and bicycle parking spaces .

There are two purchasing options:

1. Fixed price: The guide prices are fixed and purchase of the unit is secured via payment of a reservation fee, a deposit on the Conclusion of the Missive and three stage payments during the course of the works.

2. Sealed bid: The parties that have noted interest submit competitive sealed bids once a closing date is set. A deposit will be payable by the preferred bidder on the Conclusion of the Missive and the balance will be due at the submission of the Certificate of Completion.
