The Old Schoolhouse in St Boswells is a charming and historic property that presents a unique opportunity for those seeking a new home or investment.

Located in the heart of St Boswells, The Old Schoolhouse is a stunning semi-detached property that was originally built in the 1836 as the house attached to the local school. With its traditional stone exterior, attractive slate roof and working shutters in many of the rooms, the property has an undeniable sense of character and charm.

As you step inside, you are greeted by a spacious entrance hallway that leads to the main living areas of the property. The lounge is a particularly large and impressive space, with its high ceiling, dual aspect windows and wood-burning stove providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere. There is also a separate dining room across the hall, ideal for hosting dinner parties and special occasions.

The kitchen would benefit from some modernisation and a stud wall between the kitchen and dining room could be removed to make a large open plan kitchen dining area. The current kitchen is a good sized room with ample storage space and a large larder cupboard. There is a false ceiling that could easily be removed to reinstate the original high ceiling. There is a window looking out to the rear garden and plenty of space for appliances.

Behind the kitchen there is a smaller second entrance hall with access to a separate utility room and wet room as well as access out to the rear private garden. The utility offers additional storage, laundry facilities and a Belfast double sink. The wet room has underfloor heating, a shower, sink and toilet. You follow a curved staircase, hiding red sandstone steps beneath the carpet, to access the first floor.

The Old Schoolhouse has 4 generously sized bedrooms on the 1st floor each offering plenty of space and lots of natural light. The principal bedroom benefits from an additional dressing room that would be large enough to be split in two to incorporate the addition of an ensuite. The second bedroom also has a separate dressing room. There is a good sized family bathroom on the 1st floor level to service the bedrooms.
Outside, the property boasts a spacious garden with mature trees and shrubs, providing a peaceful and secluded space to relax and unwind. There is also off-street parking for two cars and a detached wooden garage at the rear of the property.

The Old Schoolhouse is a truly unique and impressive property, offering spacious and flexible accommodation, a wealth of character and charm, in a convenient and desirable location.
