About the property

The perfect family home or country retreat, The Post House offers a little slice of Scottish history in a charming village setting.

With the post box to the front still fully functional, The Post House dates back to the 1700’s - and has been beautifully maintained to showcase some lovely original features, while still providing for modern life. The detached stone built property sits just off the village green, and benefits spacious living accommodation on the ground floor; with a hearty kitchen with a wood burning stove at its centre, and natural materials drawing on the period of the property including exposed stone wall and chimney setting, with a comfortable dining area and a separate utility room with cloakroom facility leading off. The lounge sits to the far side, and is also accessed from the hall, a well-proportioned room with original feature fireplace and wood burning stove, exposed beams and a fantastic sunroom opening directly to the garden. Upstairs, three well-appointed bedrooms with the master particularly spacious, and all with beautiful fireplaces, with the family bathroom across the landing. Additional work or hobby space is available in the converted attic, with a fixed timber stair this is also suitable for guest accommodation or perhaps as a playroom.

The outside space is all you would hope for from a country cottage garden – enclosed, private, with mature and flourishing planted beds and shrubbery - plenty of space to enjoy! There are useful outhouses which may also be suitable for conversion with the relevant permissions, and all finished with a lovely outlook across the village and countryside beyond.


Midlem is a much admired and sought after conservation village with a central green and an active community spirit hosting frequent events and a focus on village life. Local schools are available at the nearby primary school at Lilliesleaf and Selkirk, with private schooling available at St Mary’s Melrose. Midlem is well located for the central Borders towns and the A68 and A7 to Edinburgh, as well as easy access to the Borders Railway.

Being set just over four miles from Selkirk, the property is ideally placed to take advantage of the many amenities of the town; with a good selection of small local shops providing for everyday requirements, and schools from nursery to secondary level all easily accessible. The area has good road and bus connections to all central Borders towns and is surrounded by beautiful countryside with rolling hills and scenic valleys all close to hand.
