Clintmains is a pretty small settlement close to the River Tweed approximately 2 miles east of St Boswells. Mertoun School House has a central location within Clintmains and enjoys tremendous easterly outlooks over scenic Borders countryside/farmland. Local amenities are found in the popular conservation village of St Boswells (shops, primary school, church, well used village hall, hotel, filling station, golf course, tennis courts, cricket pitch, rugby pitch) and the popular Dryburgh Hotel is also about 2 miles from Clintmains.
A wider range of amenities is available in each of Kelso and Melrose and the Borders rail link with Edinburgh terminates at Tweedbank. The A68, which links Edinburgh with the northeast of England, passes through St Boswells.
The Scottish Borders is renowned for its scenic beauty and is an ideal base for those with an interest in sporting and outdoor pursuits while not wishing to be too far from a busy capital city.
Mertoun School House is an appealing traditional detached family home offering well appointed and nicely proportioned accommodation.
The property has oil fired central heating and the boiler was replaced around 2010. A new kitchen has been installed and there is a large electric “Aga” cooker.
Solar panels have been installed and these produce a healthy level of electricity.
Entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen with living conservatory off, utility room, rear hall, WC (with WC and basin) and guest’s bedroom with en suite bathroom (with WC, basin and bath with shower above).
Landing, master bedroom with dressing room and en suite shower room (with shower, basin and WC), 2 further double bedrooms, study and shower room (with shower, basin and WC).
Mertoun School House sits within attractive garden grounds which include lawns, borders, patio, drying green and good off road car parking. There is some decking immediately to the rear of the house and this makes the most of the fine easterly outlooks.
Outbuildings include a good double garage which appears to have potential for conversion to a granny annexe or office - subject to consent. There is also a timber summer house (with fine easterly outlooks), greenhouse and a pair of adjoining stone stores.
From St Boswells take the B6404 through the village and continue east towards Kelso for about a mile after leaving the village. Cross Mertoun Bridge over the River Tweed and head up a short hill before turning left to Clintmains. Clintmains lies a short distance from the turning, up a short hill, and Mertoun School House lies on your right where the main road veers left and a minor public road cuts off to the right. There is a phone box close to the house.
