About the property

Enjoying a prime position overlooking the Village Green, Rae Cottage enjoys a great location within the village with a superb private garden to rear. This traditional sandstone property has been tastefully developed and improved by the current owners, and provides spacious and flexible living space on the ground floor, with a recently fitted “Countryside Kitchen” and two front rooms both with stoves and a garden or family room within the extension leading out to the delightful hidden gem of a garden with separate access through the enclosed pend/storage area to side. An ideal traditional home with the benefit of a great location in the heart of the village and the benefit of an extensive private sanctuary with the garden to rear all in enviable condition.


Nestled in rolling countryside, Denholm is a charming Borders village with an attractive Village Green at its centre. The village enjoys excellent amenities with independent shops, two popular village pubs, a Bistro/antique shop, coffee shop, garage and Primary School - with secondary schools close to hand at Hawick or Jedburgh, and private education at nearby St Marys in Melrose. Further shopping in Hawick includes major supermarkets, banks, doctors surgeries and dentists, with facilities including the swimming and leisure centre, the much acclaimed recently opened play park within the museum and lodge grounds at Wilton Park and an active theatre and cinema scene at ‘The Heart of Hawick’. The area is renowned for its beautiful scenery and has strong rugby and horse riding connections. Denholm benefits from good transport links with buses through the village and the recently reopened Waverley rail line providing an easy link to the heart of Edinburgh.

Rae Cottage is a Victorian sandstone property with retained traditional features including working shutters, panelled windows, original panelled doors, carpeted staircase with brass stair rods and an attractive sandstone frontage overlooking the village Green.


The property is well presented with tasteful traditional décor and a successful blend of old and new with the contemporary kitchen fitted by the well regarded local company “Countryside Kitchens”. The red painted centrally located entrance door has the original house name in the stonework over and leads through to the main ground floor accommodation which is largely laid with Karndean flooring. Two public rooms lie either side of the hallway, the dining room/living room with a panelled window to the front benefits from working shutters and a lovely focal point is provided by the “Jotul” wood-burning stove set within a traditional timber fireplace. Beyond this lies the new “Countryside” kitchen with contemporary units, attractive granite worktops and a range of ‘Miele’ appliances and good natural light with windows to the front and rear. On the far side of the hall we return to the more traditional side with stained timber finishes, fully working shuttered windows to the front and rear with panelling below and a further stove with tiled surrounds. An extension off the rear hall provides a garden room or second sitting room with French doors out to the patio and garden beyond. A cloakroom lies to the side and there is further access door to the garden and a utility cupboard off the hall neatly houses the washing machine.


An attractive carpeted staircase with fitted brass stair rods, leads to a split landing with two principal bedrooms lying to the front either side of the upper landing area. Both are good sized double bedrooms with excellent head height and fine views from panelled windows overlooking the green and both have decorative Victorian bedroom fireplaces. A centrally located study also has a further window overlooking the green while within the extension to the rear there is a further double bedroom with twin replacement sash and case windows with fine outlooks over the back garden. The bathroom lies at bedroom level and has been adapted to provide a contemporary shower room. Pull down ladders off the back bedroom lead to floored and insulated loft storage and the house is well provided with storage cupboards throughout.


To the back of the house there is wonderful outside space with a paved patio and suntrap sitting area off the garden room leading to a riot of colourful plantings within the carefully created garden with lawns, deep planted beds with a variety of shrubs and bushes, vegetable plots and fruit bushes, summerhouse, greenhouse and space to the side for bin and log storage.
