SITUATION
Fouledge Cottage enjoys a scenic rural location a short distance to the southwest of Skelfhill Farm - about 8 miles southwest of Hawick. The cottage has a south easterly aspect to the front.

Despite its peaceful privacy the cottage is within easy reach of the A7, one of the main roads linking Edinburgh with the north of England.

The cottage enjoys some tremendous outlooks to Skelfhill and Holywell Rig and the surrounding countryside offers an excellent range of walks and other country pursuits. The area is also rich in wildlife.

Hawick is an important Borders town lying on the River Teviot and provides a useful shopping centre along with primary and secondary schools and a wide variety of recreational and sporting facilities. Hawick has good road links with the other principal towns in the Borders and the A7 links Edinburgh with Carlisle.

DESCRIPTION
Fouledge Cottage is a charming traditional detached cottage which has been extended and improved since 2005 to provide versatile, nicely proportioned and well presented family sized accommodation.

The cottage has oil fired central heating, with an external “Grant” boiler, and there is a log burning stove in the sitting room. Windows are double glazed.

The impressive dining kitchen is a particularly attractive feature of the cottage and there is direct access from this to the external decking.

ACCOMMODATION
Ground Floor:
Spacious porch, hall, sitting room, dining kitchen, utility room, bedroom 4/study and family bathroom (with WC, basin and bath with shower above).

First Floor:
Two separate staircases serve 3 double bedrooms and a shower room (with shower, basin and WC).

GARDEN
Fouledge Cottage sits within spacious garden grounds which lie mainly to its south and east and are largely in grass. There is decking outside the dining kitchen - on the southwest end of the cottage.

There is good car parking/turning space with the cottage along with a large detached garage/workshop (12m x 4.5m) with electricity. There is a lean-to kennel/log store at the northeast end of the cottage.

DIRECTIONS
From Hawick travel southwest on the A7 for approximately 7 miles, turning left just after crossing the River Teviot at a sign to “Priesthaugh” and “Skelfhill”. This minor road to Skelfhill and Priesthaugh climbs over Gray Hill before descending towards Skelfhill Burn and Priesthaugh Burn. Turn right to Skelfhill approximately 3 miles from the A7 and continue for about 1 mile passing through Skelfhill Farm Steading. Fouledge Cottage is the second cottage after the steading and involves a short climb up a farm track. The cottage lies approximately 1/4 of a mile past the steading.

VIEWINGS
