West Lodge has a tremendous location on the south eastern edge of Minto - a popular and accessible conservation village. The Lodge lies at the entrance to the highly regarded Minto Golf Course and enjoys open south easterly outlooks over the golf course. West Lodge lies on the school bus route.
Minto enjoys a picturesque setting amid beautiful countryside between Melrose, Jedburgh and Hawick. The area is ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and golf. There is local shopping about a mile and a half away at Denholm which also has two pubs, a Bistro and a primary school. More facilities are available in the surrounding towns. Both the A7 and the A68 are readily accessible providing good road links between Edinburgh and the north of England. Travel between the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh should be enhanced when the Waverley Rail Link between Galashiels and Edinburgh re-opens in September 2015.
West Lodge is a particularly attractive traditional detached lodge which has been modernised and extended to provide comfortable and well appointed family sized accommodation.
The Lodge, which dates from 1891, has oil fired central heating and windows are double glazed. There is a coal fire in the sitting room. Kitchen and sanitary fittings are modern and there is an electric Esse cooker with ceramic tops in the kitchen.
West Lodge sits within attractive and beautifully maintained garden grounds which include lawns, borders, patio, rhododendron bushes and a large oak tree. There is a pretty water feature and the garden extends to the southeast side of the access drive to Minto Golf Course.
Outbuildings include an integral double garage and some garden stores and there is gravelled parking for up to three cars at the northeast side of the Lodge.
