Riverside Drive is located within a small development of similar sized properties on the southern edge of Tweedbank. This popular Borders village lies on the south bank of the River Tweed, between Melrose and Galashiels. It has a range of amenities which include a primary school, restaurant, shop and sports centre with further housing, retail and recreational development planned.
The Borders Rail link with Edinburgh terminates here and a number of bus routes connect Tweedbank to the wider Borders region and beyond.
In addition, nearby Galashiels and Melrose provide a wider range of facilities for sport, leisure and recreation, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and health centres. Both the Borders General Hospital and Scottish Borders Council headquarters also lie within easy reach of Tweedbank.
14 Riverside Drive was built in the late 1980s. The two storey house provides adaptable accommodation and sits in a peaceful spot at the end of a cul de sac.
The deceptively spacious house is approached by a mono-block driveway which provides off street parking. A mature, high hedge along the north east border of the plot gives a degree of privacy and shelter to both the front and side of the property.
On entering the property there is a light and airy feel with well proportioned rooms which can be utilised for a variety of purposes.
The first floor has two good sized bedrooms, the master bedroom facing east with views of the Eildon Hills. The house benefits from generous storage throughout with convenient cupboards of each floor.
The front garden has an interesting, low maintenance pebbled area. The south facing rear of the house is laid to lawn and a pretty, planted raised border with a wooded backdrop. The detached garage, with ample storage space, can also be accessed from the rear garden.
A sun room leads out on to a west facing paved terrace making it an ideal spot for alfresco dining.
