Sandwood lies on the western edge of Nisbet, a pretty 19th Century Estate village. The house has a south westerly aspect to the front and enjoys some tremendous outlooks along the Teviot Valley. Sandwood lies within Nisbets conservation area. Tweedbank, from where there is a train to Edinburgh every half hour, is within 20 minutes drive of Sandwood.
Nisbet has a peaceful, yet accessible, location in a scenic area of the Borders and amenities on its doorstep include walking, fishing and riding. Local amenities are found in Ancrum, including a primary school, shop, inn and church and there is a wider range of amenities in each of Jedburgh and Kelso. Monteviot House, Harestanes Visitors Centre and Woodside Garden all lie nearby.
Sandwood is an attractive, modern detached house built in 2003 which provides versatile family sized accommodation designed to make the most of the outlooks.
The versatile and well appointed accommodation benefits from oil fired central heating and windows are double glazed. There is good built in storage space. Sandwoods kitchen and sanitary fittings are modern and each of the three bedrooms has a built in wardrobe. There is a multi-fuel stove in the sitting room and the attic provides useful storage space having been part floored and benefiting from a loft ladder and lighting.
An attractive feature of Sandwood is the versatility of its accommodation and the rooms currently used as a dining room and study on the ground floor could be converted for use as a bedroom with en suite bathroom if the house was ever occupied by someone who had difficulty with stairs. Alternatively a ground floor bedroom with en suite bathroom could be used for bed and breakfast if desired.
The house sits within its own attractive and relatively easily maintained garden grounds which lie largely to its north and west and include gravelled car parking, patio, lawns and borders. There is a good looking tree house in the garden and Sandwood has a useful integral single car garage with direct pedestrian access to and from the living accommodation.
