LOCATION
Charlesfield Bungalow is one of a small number of bungalows at the northwest corner of the Charlesfield Industrial Estate approximately one mile to the southwest of St Boswells. St Boswells has a good range of local shops, including the popular Main Street Trading (book shop with café), along with a primary school, a popular hotel, a church and a garage/petrol station. Secondary schooling is at the highly regarded Earlston High School. St Boswells has a good range of sporting and recreational facilities including a golf course, rugby club, tennis courts and cricket ground. The Waverley Rail Link between Tweedbank/Galashiels and Edinburgh will terminate approximately 6 miles from St Boswells and should be beneficial to the central Scottish Borders when it re-opens - due in September 2015.

DIRECTIONS
Heading south on the A68 pass St Boswells, and the right hand turn to Selkirk, taking the next right hand turn to Charlesfield. Continue along this road past the industrial estate on your left and you will reach a row of bungalows with north westerly outlooks to the Eildon Hills. Charlesfield Bungalow is the first of these bungalows.

DESCRIPTION
Charlesfield Bungalow is a small detached bungalow which would now benefit from some upgrading and repair. The bungalow appears to have potential to be extended - subject to obtaining the necessary consents. The property currently has an attached portacabin which houses the kitchen. It is anticipated that most new owners would wish to improve on this situation - by properly extending the cottage.

Charlesfield Bungalow benefits from oil fired central heating and most windows are double glazed.

The bungalow sits within spacious garden grounds which include lawn and shrubs and appear to be child/dog safe.

Outbuildings include two basic timber sheds to the east of the property and a timber garden shed. There is ample off road car parking with the bungalow and there appears to be space for a garage - if desired.
