5 Lochend is a modern detached family home positioned in a secluded cul-de-sac development which was built in the early 1980’s. Houses built in this era are generally sought-after because the developers were more generous with both room sizes and plots and gardens. The small number of properties in the cul-de-sac were designed as executive homes and 5 Lochend was no exception, boasting a full double plot with fine views of the nearby loch itself. The house is of brick construction with a slate tiled roof and the property has been extended over the years to create a fantastic ground floor annexe to one side and a stunning sun room to the other, both overlooking the pretty landscaped rear garden which is fully enclosed. There is a detached double garage in the grounds, a greenhouse and a fantastic summer house which could be ideal as a home office, studio or playhouse. The house also benefits from sixteen solar panels that will provide a new owner with a feed-in tariff income, the tariff has another twenty-two years to run and keeps the net running costs of heating the house and hot water to approximately £200 per annum.
The property is located in a beautiful secluded cul-de-sac with fine views over the nearby loch. The cul-de-sac is made up of similar detached family homes popular with professionals, families and retirees. Tweedbank is a sought-after and established residential area located between the pretty Borders town of Melrose to the east and Galashiels to the west. Local primary schooling is available within Tweedbank, and public transport facilities are readily to hand. Tweedbank also boasts sports facilities, a restaurant/bar and a local shop. The A7 and A68 are also close to hand providing access to Edinburgh, Carlisle and Newcastle. A choice of airports include Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle and the east coast main line runs from Berwick-upon-Tweed connecting Edinburgh with London. The new Borders Railway which opened in 2015 also provides regular services to Edinburgh from Tweedbank and Galashiels. The Scottish Borders offers a quality of life that is second to none and in an area of 1800 square miles there is certainly plenty of space to enjoy our beautiful unspoilt countryside and individual towns. Home to world class activities and attractions, it’s no wonder that the area is so popular with visitors who come here to enjoy mountain biking at Glentress, salmon fishing on the Tweed, walking in our hills and forests or diving off the Berwickshire coast. The area is also known for its’ spectacular Common Ridings, when whole communities come together to celebrate each town’s individual heritage and to cheer on hundreds of horses and riders every summer. The Borders is also a heartland of rugby in Scotland, with the names of our local towns being synonymous with the game and of course Melrose being the original home of rugby sevens. From our historic towns to rural villages, wherever you go you will be struck by the warmth of the welcome in our communities and the real pride people have in living in this wonderful part of the world. With good transport links, including the newly opened Borders Railway with regular services to Edinburgh, an excellent education system and stunning countryside, a move to the Scottish Borders really could be the best move of your life.
