SITUATIONRowan Cottage sits in an enviable position overlooking the village green on the western edge of the popular village of Bowden.The pretty conservation village has a tremendous community spirit and a range of activities take place at the village hall. Nearby is the thriving small market town of Melrose which has a wide variety of independent shops, restaurants and hotels, a health centre and professional services plus local and independent primary level schools. Bowden falls into the catchment of the highly regarded Earlston High School.The Borders General Hospital is just 3.5 miles away and the headquarters of the Scottish Borders Council is also close by in Newtown St Boswells (1.5 miles). The Scottish Borders Railway with a station in nearby Tweedbank provides excellent access by rail to Edinburgh and both the A68 and A7 trunk roads are within easy reach.DESCRIPTIONRowan Cottage was originally built in the 1790s with a two up two down layout and a stable to the rear. Today the traditional facade conceals a surprisingly spacious and well laid out interior. An extension was added in 2010, including a side hall with ample storage and access to the garden, a bathroom, and an inspirational downstairs bedroom with large picture windows and great views across the garden. The original cottage has also been significantly modernised, while keeping many original features. The open space at the top of the stairs, created by removing a bedroom wall, now offers various uses, including a study area or potentially a further bedroom. The kitchen was extended and forms a decent sized kitchen/dining room with roof lights.ACCOMMODATIONGround Floor:Sitting room, kitchen/diner, bedroom. bathroom.First Floor:Bedroom, study area, WC.GARDEN AND GROUNDSRowan Cottage benefits from a very pretty and well stocked garden to the rear of the property.
