The principal accommodation comprises:

Hall, Drawing Room, Sun Room, Well Appointed Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Large Utility Room, Two Double Bedrooms (both ensuite), Third Bedroom (currently Study).

Sizeable, well maintained Garden surround.

Extending to 0.76 acres of thereabouts in total.

Mill Valley is situated in south-east Berwickshire on the edge of the Tweed Valley, an area noted both for the quality of its land and its stunning scenery.

The property enjoys considerable privacy, yet is readily accessible, being served by a minor public road which links to the A6105 Chirnside-Berwick upon Tweed road approximately 400 metres to the south.

There is a main line railway station at Berwick upon Tweed on the east coast route with direct connections to Edinburgh, Newcastle upon Tyne and London as well as international airports at both Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne.

Chirnside (2 miles) provides a good range of local services including a Co-Op supermarket, Post Office, pharmacy, doctor's surgery and two public houses. The larger centres of Duns, Berwick upon Tweed, Coldstream and Kelso afford a broader range of facilities. There is a primary school at Chirnside and excellent modern high schools at both Duns and Eyemouth together with a number of private schools in and around Edinburgh in addition to those at Longridge Towers, Berwick and St Mary's in Melrose.

More generally, Mill Valley is situated within an essentially rural community of low population and great natural beauty. The Borders is famed for the quality of its field sports and there are a number of good links and inland golf courses as well as excellent riding and walking opportunities throughout the area. Edinburgh is readily accessible and is a vibrant centre of art and culture and home to numerous quality restaurants, cinemas, theatres and art galleries as well as hosting the famous Fringe Festival.

Mill Valley is an attractive detached modern bungalow situated in an entirely rural surround benefitting from good open views, particularly to the south and east.

Built by George Anderson of Chirnside in 2003, the property is of timber framed construction (externally rendered and dry dashed) with exposed yellow brick base courses all under a hipped roof covered in rustic coloured tiles.

The bungalow is well appointed with O-gee panelled and glazed hardwood doors throughout, ceiling coves, tiled and wood laminate floor coverings and plentiful built in storage space. It provides light and spacious accommodation and has full oil fired central heating and full double glazing.

The current owner has occupied the house since it was built and has converted the utility room into de-mountable kennel space for her pedigree Australian show terriers. The utility room is large enough to provide the scope for conversion to a fourth bedroom and bathroom if required.

Mill Valley is set back approximately 20 metres from a minor, unclassified public road and has a sizeable, easily managed garden surround by a number of interesting features.
