The Bungalow at Fruid was built about 50 years ago on an attractive site near the Fruid Resevoir. It is a Dorran concrete panel house which is in need of upgrading and repair and is situated in a large wooded garden well off the public road approached from a shared private track serving two other houses.
The house has extensive accommodation on one floor including entrance porch, kitchen, sitting room, dining room, living room, five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate WC. It benefits from double glazing and heating is provided by electric storage and panel heaters.
The garden ground extends to about 0.84 acre including the driveway. It offers privacy and is a lovely space for children and family pets. It is mainly grass with a number of mature Scots Pine trees to the west above the Fruid Burn.
There are two garages which are both in need of repair.
Tweedsmuir is situated about 8 miles from the village of Broughton in which there is a primary school serving a large rural area, a tea room/restaurant, post office, village shop, a garage and a village hall. The hall is home to a local choral society, film club and the annual and well attended horticultural show among many community activities. The community also benefits from a tennis court and bowling club. Broughton is also home to the small cask ale Broughton Brewery. Moffat about 17 miles south on the A701 has good shopping, a medical centre, and access to the M74.
The land around the Fruid and Talla reservoirs is set amongst some of the most spectacular scenery associated with the Scottish Borders. There is delightful hill walking in the area and for cycling enthusiasts the Tweed Cycleway passes through Broughton, and the Glentress mountain bike centre is about 22 miles distant. Dawyck Botanic Garden and Stobo Castle Health Spa are both close by and Edinburgh with all the facilities of a capital city is about an hours drive to the north.
From the south take the A701 from Moffat, turn right after 16 miles, signed to Tweedsmuir. Turn right immediately after the bridge and follow the road until just before the Fruid dam. Turn right and the bungalow is the last house of three on the track.
From the north, turn left after 6 miles after leaving Broughton on the A701 following the sign to Tweedsmuir and proceed as above.
