The rectory is a comfortable, modern building in a lovely location in Wellfield, Duns, TD11 3EH, close to the church and the town centre. A Quinquennial Review carried out in July 2017 confirmed that the rectory had no issues. The three churches will share the cost of the upkeep of the rectory on a pro rata basis.
This rectory, a single-storey timber-framed building, makes an ideal family home. It is a two-minute walk to the church, c.200 metres further along the Preston Road. Although secluded, its location enables the rector to be part of the local community. It is a twentieth-century, detached bungalow in its own grounds in a peaceful and secluded setting within the former grounds of Wellfield House on the outskirts of the town. It is bright, spacious and well-proportioned.
Accommodation includes a hall, a large L-shaped sitting/dining room, a kitchen with room for a breakfast table, family/study/meeting room, utility room, shower room, office or single bedroom, three double bedrooms and bathroom. It has double glazing and is well insulated. A gas-fired central heating system provides heat to the whole property; and there is a multi-fuel stove in the sitting room.
A good-sized private garden surrounds the property complete with lawns, shrubs, fruit trees and a garden shed. Although there is no garage, there is ample off-road parking to the front, and garden sheds to the rear. It is connected to the phone system, mains drainage, mains water and electric supply.
