Scott Road sits behind West High Street and is within comfortable walking distance of the town’s amenities.

Situated on the main A68 trunk road 27 miles south of Edinburgh city centre, Lauder is an attractive Borders town in the picturesque Leader valley. The Royal and Ancient Burgh dates back to the 12th Century and the town centre is a good example of an 18th Century Scottish town. Whilst being a historic location Lauder is able to offer all the facilities of a modern small town.

Amenities within the town include a modern primary school, health centre, leisure centre and post office. A variety of services, shops, cafes, hotels and restaurants are also located in Lauder. The town falls in the catchment of the highly regarded Earlston High School.

Walking is a popular pursuit around the town and surrounding countryside and there are marked routes to suit all including gentle strolls along the banks of the Leader to more demanding hikes on Lauder Common.

1 Scott Road is a chalet style bungalow built in the late 1960s. The semi-detached house occupies the corner plot and provides a well proportioned home.

The house benefits from a living flame gas fire in the sitting room and has central heating throughout.

Sliding patio doors lead from the sitting room to a paved terrace. This sheltered spot provides a great space for al fresco dining.

To the front of the house is an area of flat lawn surrounded by decorative borders. A rose bed provides summer colour that leads from the front to the side of the house. On the south side of the house is a sheltered garden currently divided into 3 compartments including an area planted with low evergreen tress, an area of fallow soil previously used for vegetable production and the paved terrace. Beyond the terrace and screened by trellising is a timber storage shed.
