Polwarth is a small collection of houses in a picturesque Berwickshire location approximately mid-way between Duns and Greenlaw. olwarth, which means “place” or “homestead on the pool”, was an ancient hamlet with a Kirk founded over a thousand years ago.
Whilst Polwarth enjoys a picturesque and peaceful rural location the A6112 Duns to Greenlaw road passes nearby. Duns is the principal town in Berwickshire with a population of 2600 and has a good range of amenities including a newly built secondary school, primary school (a new primary school is planned), a GP practice attached to the Knoll Hospital, three main churches, swimming pool (in the secondary school), an 18 hole golf course, rugby, bowls, tennis clubs, a large public park, garage and a useful range of shops. A new
secondary school is currently under construction. Duns Castle Nature Reserve is a popular attraction.
The plot at St Leonards is beautifully situated in a peaceful rural location with access from a minor public road and yet is within comfortable reach of the A6112 Duns to Greenlaw road.
The plot slopes gently downwards in a southerly direction towards a small burn at its foot and contains an attractive variety of trees including a large monkey puzzle, beech, willow and old apple trees. This area was formerly the orchard for St Leonards.
Mains electricity and water supplies are available nearby.
A private drainage system will be required
