Converted Signal Box & Land

The Railway Signal Box, Shankend, Hawick (c) 2013 Haddon & Turnbull.

This former Signal Box at Shankend, Hawick, in the Scottish Borders is a fascinating conversion of a former railway building that still retains the utilitarian character, but in a certain way, also has a charm of the bygone pre Beeching cut railways that linger in the memories of many of us.

Fortunately, a significant number of these interesting railway buildings remain. Several, like this Signal Box have found new life as an interesting place to call home. Fully compliant with the planning permission for permanent occupation, the estate agents suggest that the beautiful rural location and unusual nature of this former Signal Box may also make it ideal for use as a weekend retreat or holiday home. The building has an attractive 2-3 acres of land included in the sale.

The ground floor provides a dining kitchen, as well as accessing a shower room. Indeed there is a lot of living space compacted into this interesting building …

A staircase then leads up to a lovely bedsitting room which takes full advantage of the fantastic views.

Tenure: Feuhold (Scottish Freehold Equivalent).
