Location

Parkview House is a magnificent Victorian family home in a much sought after residential area. It boasts an elevated position on the outskirts of Hawick overlooking the River Teviot and Wilton Lodge Park. Convenient for the town centre, yet comfortably removed from its bustle and noise, Parkview lies within the catchment of several well-respected primary schools, and a stone's throw from Hawick High School.

Hawick is centrally located to all the Scottish Borders market towns, as well as being only 45 miles from Edinburgh. The terminus of the new Borders Railway is at Tweedbank, about 17 miles to the north. The international airport at Newcastle upon Tyne is about 52 miles to the south-east. The mainline railway station at Newcastle has an hourly service to London with a fastest journey time of about 2 hours 40 minutes. There is also access to the A1 and Newcastle and Gateshead's excellent shopping facilities. Edinburgh Airport is about 48 miles north and Carlisle lies 36 miles south west, providing access to the M6 and the west coast train line service to London.

The Borders area is very well known for its top-quality field sports, including first class grouse shooting in the Lammermuir Hills and a number of extremely well run pheasant shoots. The River Tweed and its tributaries are internationally known for the quality of their salmon and sea trout fishing. Numerous local golf courses, including the Roxburghe Championship Course near Kelso, cater for golf enthusiasts. As well as providing excellent sport and recreational activities Hawick offers a useful range of shops. The town is an integral part of the Cashmere Trail and is the major remaining centre for that industry in the Borders. In addition the town hosts a number of spectacular events throughout the year, including the world famous Common Riding.

Description

Parkview House dates back to 1892 and is a fantastic example of the work of James Pearson Alison, Hawick's most prominent architect. Built of stone under pitched slate roofs, the C listed Victorian villa provides exceptionally spacious and well laid out accommodation over four floors. The house is set in extensive gardens, beautifully kept and including a water feature, a summerhouse, a greenhouse and garden lighting. There is ample car parking as well as a double garage. Inside, the house possesses a wealth of charming original Arts and Crafts features including natural woodwork, ornate plasterwork, splendid fireplaces and a breathtaking stained and leaded glass window over the main staircase. Whilst retaining these features, the current owners have sympathetically upgraded Parkview House for modern day family living.


ACCOMMODATION
The house is entered through a solid timber front door into the tiled vestibule. Immediately on the left is a WC and to the right is the hallway off which the three reception rooms and the kitchen are located. The drawing room and dining room have beautiful bay windows overlooking the gardens and are linked by an archway. The drawing room has wooden flooring and ornate cornicing which continues into the dining room. Both these reception rooms have open fireplaces with a wooden mantelpiece over. The sitting room overlooks the garden and features fitted book shelving either side of the open fireplace which has a tiled surround and wooden mantelpiece.

The kitchen has a door which links with the dining room and the hallway and has been elegantly fitted with wooden base and wall units finished with solid granite tops. Integrated appliances include a fitted fridge and freezer, ceramic Belfast sink and a 5 burner Britannia gas range with double oven and extractor fan over. Other features of the kitchen include a central island with a breakfast bar, and Chinese slate flooring. Adjacent is the utility room which has a sink and a door to the side garden.

The staircase rises from the central hallway passing a magnificent Arts and Craft stained glass window with bespoke book shelf below.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor, two of which share an en suite bathroom with a bath and separate shower. The family bathroom is located by the stairs to the attic rooms and has a bath, WC and wash hand basin. There is a further double bedroom/playroom and a single bedroom/office on the attic level.

The lower ground floor is accessed via a stairway from the kitchen and comprises a laundry room with original sinks, and housing the hot water tank and boiler. Also on this level are a further double bedroom, bathroom, WC and store. This floor has direct access to the garden and has potential to be a self-contained flat.

Outside
The house is approached from Buccleuch Road by a chipped horseshoe driveway providing easy entry and exit as well as car parking. The grounds are enclosed and feature a number of mature trees both broadleaved and conifer, together with neatly kept lawns, herbaceous borders and planted flower beds. Paths alongside the house are paved and chipped, and there is a paved seating area on the northeast side which is nicely screened and ideal for al fresco dining. Through a timber pergola with a range of climbing plants there is an area of garden lined along its boundary by mature trees and planted with a range of shrubs. A large area of lawn stretches to the summer house and beyond this lies a further area planted with fruit trees with additional space for planting vegetables.
