About the property

An exceptionally handsome former manse nestled into a secluded and highly private plot in the centre of this established rural village setting.

This exceptionally handsome detached property boasts a fabulously secluded position within this thriving and established rural village which sits tranquilly in the heart of the Lammermuir Hills around seven miles from Duns. Originally built as the village Manse and as the name suggests, boasting an elevated setting above the River Dye which runs along the edge of the village. Having been lovingly cared for by the current vendor for over thirty years and maintained to an excellent standard, Dyebank House does now offer an opportunity for the purchaser to make some changes or upgrades of their own if desired; the garden grounds extend around the property on all sides which could give way to options of further extending. The property sits centrally within the sizeable plot with fantastic levels of privacy and very well tended garden grounds – a haven for the gardening enthusiast or simply those who are searching for peace and tranquillity. There is a rare opportunity at Dyebank House for those seeking to create a forever family home in the country and with easy access to Duns as well as Edinburgh in less than hour, it’s a great prospect for those seeking a rural setting which remains well connected.
