Buxton is located a short distance to the east of Selkirk in particularly scenic rural surroundings. The plot sits at the end of a quiet cul de sac that borders Selkirk Hill. Due to its location Buxton is well placed for access to the surrounding countryside.
Selkirk has a population of around 6,000 and provides a good range of services catering for everyday needs including hotels, bars and a wide variety of shops and professional services. Both primary and secondary education is available in the town. A wider range of retail outlets can be accessed in nearby Hawick and Galashiels.
The ease of access to Edinburgh via the A7 by road and the Scottish Borders Railway with stations in nearby Tweedbank and Galashiels means Selkirk is also an attractive commuter location.
The property at Buxton offers a site with planning permission in principle for a single storey dwelling. The Dean Burn runs down a gully at the side of the plot and provides a pretty and interesting feature.
Also included with the property are excellent equestrian facilities. These include:
40m x 20m arena with sand surface enclosed by post and rail fencing.
Timber stable range including 11 loose boxes and useful storage barn.
Timber storage shed.
Further grazing land is included with the property. The land is currently divided into two enclosures.
Field 1: 2.57 acres
Field 2: 2.77 acres
NB: The Vendor will erect a fence along the north west boundary of Field 1 when present circumstances allow.
The stables and land have a natural water supply provided by the Dean Burn.
Main water and electricity are nearby. Provision for private drainage will need to be made.
In Selkirk, turn off the A7 into High School Lane. As the road goes to the left take the right turn. Follow the road as it narrows and leaves the town and continue up the hill. Go past 4 houses. The plot and stables is the last entrance on the left as the road turns into a rough track.
