A BORDERS guest house is on the market and is the "ideal opportunity" for someone looking to start their own business.

Teviotside Guest House in Hawick is set at a guide price of £240,000+ and will be available at auction in the new year.

Set to appear at auction with Auction House Scotland, the eight-bedroom guest house on Teviotside Terrace is centrally-based and has been operating as a bed and breakfast for years.

The property comes with six ensuite bedrooms, and an additional two-bedroom apartment suitable for live-in owners, on-site staff or to be added as extra accommodation for guests.

The guest house also has a large dining lounge, featuring a fireplace surround and high ceilings.

The commercial kitchen is fully fitted, with white goods included in the auction price.

Teviotside Terrace also boasts lovely views and on-street parking at the front and side of the property.

Mandi Cooper, managing director of Auction House Scotland, said: “For anyone who has always dreamt of running their own hospitality business, Teviotside Guest House could be the ideal opportunity.

"Situated in the largest of the Borders towns, which attracts tourists for its rich historical and cultural heritage, including its annual world-famous Common Riding event in the summer, as well as many outdoor pursuits in the area, the property has significant Air BnB potential.

“Alternatively, the property could also make a wonderful family home with the possibility of eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms and masses of family living space, subject to relevant planning permissions being granted.”

Teviotside Guest House will be auctioned on January 26, 2023 at 2pm from Radisson Red, 25 Tunnel Street, Glasgow, G3 8HL.
