About the property


A rare small holding opportunity near the historic village of Hume; a detached bungalow with paddocks of approximately 1.5 acre plus a selection of agricultural sheds


Opportunities such as this are hard to find; located just outside the historic village of Hume which also lies within easy reach of Kelso, 18 Hume Orchard provides a wonderful lifestyle and small holding opportunity . Beautifully positioned within its own grounds, 18 Hume Orchard comprises of a well maintained detached 2 /3 bed bungalow, surrounding paddocks of approximately 1.5 acres plus a hard standing yard giving access to a range of agricultural buildings.

The bungalow has been extremely well cared for and extended to provide the current level of accommodation. Presented in good order and offering pleasant internal proportions, there are also ample opportunities for cosmetic upgrading and possibilities to further extend the accommodation if desired; indeed the current owner has had architect plans drawn up to demonstrate some ways in which the property could be extended.

The surrounding paddocks extend to approximately 1.5 acre; all currently laid to grass with good stock proof fencing and easy access to water etc. A perfect set up for horses, sheep or other livestock.

The private driveway gives secure gated access to a large hard standing yard. From here there is access to a range of agricultural sheds and outbuildings including stables with hay store, livestock/field shelters, a lambing shed plus two garages/large stores.

For those looking for the ‘good life’ this is an excellent opportunity to lead a rural lifestyle yet with good connections to local schools, amenities and transport routes. Whilst perfectly suited to use as a small holding, the ground and outbuildings could also lend themselves to those looking to create a self-sufficient lifestyle or perhaps for business use.


Sitting just beneath the majestic Hume Castle, a well-known Border landmark, and surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, Hume is a charming hamlet of traditional and modern conversions, set just outside the town of Kelso. There are good road links with Edinburgh a viable commuting option and the nearby town of Kelso providing good shopping, educational and recreational facilities. The area has much to
offer those interested in country pursuits with Tweed fishing, National Hunt racing and walking in the nearby Cheviot Hills.
