Full description

1 & 2 Bankhead Cottages have a scenic rural location a few miles to the southwest of Hawick and are conveniently placed for access to the A7 which links the northwest of England with southern central Scotland. The cottages have a south easterly aspect to the front and overlook the River Teviot. The cottages are surrounded by rolling Borders hills.

Bankhead Cottages are ideally placed for those who enjoy countryside pursuits and the surrounding hills have been walked by Sir Walter Scott, Thomas Carlisle, William Wordsworth and others - each of whom has celebrated the beautiful scenery in words and verse.

Nearby Hawick provides a wide range of amenities including shops, banks, public houses, hotels, primary and secondary schools. Hawick is an important Borders centre and hosts a number of spectacular events throughout the year including the annual common riding.

From Hawick travel southwest on the A7 heading towards Carlisle. After about 6 miles (approximately 2 miles past Newmill on Teviot and just before crossing the River Teviot) turn right at the sign for Commonside. Continue along this road and Bankhead Cottages lie on your left, below the road, approximately one mile from the turning off the A7.

1 & 2 Bankhead Cottages is a pair of traditional semi-detached cottages. Both cottages would now benefit from some upgrading and repair and could be combined to create one larger detached cottage if desired - subject to obtaining the necessary consents. No. 1 has oil fired central heating and No. 2 has double glazed windows.

The cottages sit within spacious grounds which include grass and some woodland. There is a potentially useful stone workshop/store to the northwest of cottage 1.

A single driveway from the public road serves both cottages.
