Historic buildings on the doorstep and a super-sized rear garden are two features of an end-terraced house in Jedburgh

Dating from 1799 and located in the historic heart of Jedburgh, number 81 Castlegate is a well-presented end-terraced house within walking distance of Jedburgh’s other landmark buildings, historic visitor attractions and town centre amenities. Castlegate’s well-documented past includes several attractively restored houses, including two with sculptures set into the walls, while in 1803, the abbey close was the scene of a visit from Sir Walter Scott to the poet William Wordsmith’s family in 1803 where he is said to have sat and read them passages from his poem, Lady of the Last Minstrel.

And in 1745, Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed at number 11 Castlegate when leading the Jacobite army on its march towards England. Number 81 Castlegate has another unique selling point; behind its symmetrical stone-built facade and modern interior is an unexpectedly large rear garden with an expansive lawn and scope for growing vegetables.

The property has been well maintained and improved by the present owners, who in the last 20 years have upgraded the central heating system, rewired and fitted new double-glazed windows at the rear – replacement windows at the front as the C-listed property lies within a Conservation Area.

The kitchen has also been re-fitted in recent years, while the existing living room window has been replaced with much larger French doors to provide direct access to the sheltered suntrap patio with space for seating and dining furniture and garden beyond.

Number 81 Castlegate has another unique selling point; behind its symmetrical stone -built facade and modern interior is an unexpectedly large rear garden with an expansive lawn and scope for growing vegetables

Accommodation-wise, the house has an entrance vestibule leading into a particularly spacious dual aspect living room enhanced by French doors and a Living Flame fire. A door at the rear opens into a well-equipped and attractively fitted galley-style kitchen and on, into an adjoining utility with a door to the rear garden. Upstairs off the first floor landing are two double bedrooms, built-in storage and bathroom. Outside, the mature rear garden is a key feature comprising mainly lawn interspersed by trees and shrubs and scope for a sizeable growing bed for vegetables and soft fruits. The property also has two private parking spaces at the front – a major advantage in this part of the town. This home’s location offers easy access to other towns and villages in the region – and is also accessible for major locations north and south of the border via the nearby A68, while the rail link between Tweedbank and Edinburgh city centre is only a 25-minute drive.

A property full of character with beautiful gardens
