SITUATIONBowanhill is located at Teviothead, a rural village that straddles the A7 south west of Hawick. Teviothead was traditionally a farming community and is renowned for its scenic rural setting amongst the rolling countryside of the Borders. It is known as the location of the Celtic Goldsmith and boasts a village hall and parish church.Teviothead is about 9 miles from Hawick, the textile capital of the Borders. Hawick has a long and colourful history and provides a wide range of amenities including several primary schools, a secondary school, leisure centre with swimming pool plus a good range of supermarkets as well as independent shops.DESCRIPTIONBowanhill was built in about 1792.

The reception rooms are fine south facing rooms and are adaptable in use. A pretty stair case leads to the first floor.The first floor offers nicely proportioned bedrooms as well as a bathroom. UPVC double glazing has been installed in most windows on both floors.ACCOMMODATIONGround Floor: 2 reception rooms, kitchen/dining room.First Floor:4 bedrooms, bathroom.

There was previously a productive area for growing fruit and vegetables as well as an area of orchard. Mature trees and shrubs on the southern boundary provide excellent shelter and privacy.The traditional steading buildings form a sheltered courtyard to the rear of the house. The buildings, formed in a quad, are adaptable and could be used for a number of purposes as well as providing excellent storage and garages. There is a power supply to the buildings.On the east side of the steading is a useful small paddock extending to about 0.14 ha (0.36 acres).A screen of mature mixed trees lines the steep bank of River Teviot on the north side of the steading.On the west side of the steading is the area formerly used as a stack yard with silage pit. Beyond this is a larger field extending to about 2.97 ha (7.33 acres). The field is mostly relatively flat. The far side of the field slopes down where a gate gives access to the River Teviot.NOTE: The river and river bank are part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
