John Renbourn's house for sale...




John passed away and his beautiful house in the Scottish countryside is for sale, now...




The Snoot, Roberton, Hawick
Viewing is essential to appreciate this substantial detached two storey property located in a rural location with lovely surrounding views. The building itself has much historical significance. Built as a presbyterian church in 1843, the building was then used as a youth hostel. In recent years it was home to acclaimed guitarist John Renbourn. In need of renovation, the property offers an abundance of possibilities and currently offers ground floor accommodation with a mezzanine level, and small garden to the side.
• LARGE LIVING SPACE • OPEN PLAN KITCHEN DINING AREA • SHOWER ROOM • WC • MEZZANINE LEVEL • GARDEN • STUNNING VIEWS • EPC RATING G •
OFFERS IN THE REGION OF £85,000

Wow! What I'd give to have the spare money to buy and renovate and restore that gorgeous house in John's memory and fill it with Pentangle music again! I hope it goes to a good home. Thanks for posting 8>)
