This attractive house, dating from the early 19th century, has an enviable south westerly aspect with terrific views over the River Tweed to Friarshaugh on the far side. The house is semi-detached and access to the front door directly from Roxburgh Street. The four-storey house is built of stone under a slate roof with raised margins. Inside, the hall leads into the split-level kitchen/family room on one side, and the living room on the other.
Running across the width of the house is a large sunroom with a balcony over-looking the Tweed and stairs down to the games room. On the first floor, there are two bedrooms with en-suite facilities, with two more bedrooms and an office/bedroom five on the second floor. The main bedroom has a balcony which makes the most of the fantastic view to the south and also the river and Junction Pool.
The gardens and grounds at 126 Roxburgh Street sit at the northeastern end of its plot which extends to approximately 0.12 acres. Separating the garden from the cobbie is a stone wall.
