The Hawthorns is located on the southern side of Ormiston Terrace, one of the most sought after residential locations in Melrose. The house is within comfortable walking distance of the town centre and local amenities.

Melrose is a thriving small market town which has a wide variety of independent shops, restaurants and hotels, a health centre and professional services plus local and independent primary level schools. The Borders General Hospital, which provides comprehensive medical facilities for the whole region, is just 0.4 miles away on foot.

The Scottish Borders Railway with a station in nearby Tweedbank provides excellent access by rail to Edinburgh. Both the A68 and A7 trunk roads are within easy reach and provide good road links to the north and south.

The Hawthorns is a handsome south facing house built in the 1900s with later alterations and extensions. The accommodation is currently laid out primarily on two floors with additional accommodation on the second floor.

The property offers flexible accommodation on the ground floor where the rooms are bright and adaptable. The generous master bedroom on the first floor benefits from fine views towards the Eildon Hills. The second floor is partially coombed and includes a bedroom with the remainder currently a useful storage area. There is scope to further develop the accommodation at this level. The tremendous views from the top floor are wide reaching over the surrounding countryside.

GARDEN AND GROUNDS
To the front of the house is a decorative garden which is laid to lawn and bordered by mature and decorative borders. A tarmac drive leads to the detached garage and parking area at the back of the property.

There is a generous and relatively flat garden at the rear of The Hawthorns. The garden is bordered by mature hedging and fencing that provide privacy and shelter as well as a wildlife habitiat. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn with a south west facing timber summer house in a lovely location at the bottom of the garden. A paved terrace outside the house provides an excellent area for al fresco dining.
