Situation
The village of Greenlaw is situated around 10 miles from the English border and around 40 miles south of Edinburgh. The village is situated on the A697, which is one of the main roads leading off the A68 journeying towards Coldstream before arriving over the border in England. Other centres located close by include Lauder, Earlston, Duns and Kelso. The area is well known for its farming and agriculture with a high volume of tourists passing through the area each year. The Village Store is located on the main street through the village and benefits from this passing trade as well as the consistent local clientele.

Description
The current vendors have owned the business for just over 11 years, and have placed the shop on the market in order to retire. During their tenure, they have established a good local community shop which has maintained a steady turnover.
The owners have also introduced DVD sales & rental to the business, which has proved very successful, with many customers using the library on a regular basis. There would also be potential to introduce morning rolls, with plenty of space at the rear of the shop, this would be another way to draw passers-by & regulars in to the business.

Building internal
The property itself is of standard stone construction, occupying a mid-terrace position, under a pitched and slated roof. The business and accommodation lie ‘side-by-side’, with both boasting there own separate front door.

Owners Accommodation
The owners accommodation is of a substantial size, and is accessed either from behind the Till area, or via its own separate doorway on the main road. There are a total of three bedrooms (two double & one single) all of which are located on the first floor of the property. There is also a storage cupboard, and a large bathroom upstairs.

On the ground floor level, there is a small shower room & W/C, an office, a spacious living room and a recently renovated Kitchen diner. The owner’s accommodation, in general, is offered in fine condition

Building External
To the rear of the property, is an incredibly large private garden. A small number of steps lead up to the patio area, with a small fence separating this area from the garden. A gate leads through to the landscaped garden area, where there is a pond, a summer house and garden sheds. At the end of the garden lies a large double garage.

Tenure
The property is held on the Scottish equivalent of freehold.

Summary
The sale of the Village Store offers a great opportunity for potential buyers who are looking to purchase an easily managed business with a substantial owner’s accommodation. It would certainly suit a first-time buyer, however, experienced buyers who are looking to ‘wind down’ may also be interested.
