Linthaugh Cottage

U  N  D  E  R     O  F  F  E  R


This is a fabulous property, which sits by the roadside just a couple of miles outside Jedburgh with delightful garden, which has the charm of a burn running by and extend up to a paddock and woodland, in total giving around one acre of ground, plus with a timber garage across the road. The house itself is the result of a conversion of two semi-detached cottages, and whilst there are areas still in need of completion, these are now in the main fairly minor, giving scope for the buyer to complete to their own tastes and needs, with the majority of the work having been conducted, to very good effect, creating a large country home, with surprisingly well proportioned rooms full of character.
