About the property

With open countryside views and a secluded location to the edge of town, this beautifully finished traditional property makes for an enviable home; with exceptionally spacious living accommodation and entertaining space, two king bedrooms and immaculately landscaped gardens

A country escape beautifully restored in true homage to its Victorian roots, Manorhill sits in a secluded private location set to the edge of town - surrounded by stunning landscaped gardens with a rolling countryside backdrop, sheltering woodlands and restorative outlooks - it is an enviable home providing a perfect balance between peace and ease of accessibility.

This immaculate apartment is set within a striking mansion house, and feels very much a standalone property. The accommodation itself has been carefully restored to retain the original charm of the era; blending carefully with contemporary touches and a chic décor throughout. The aptly named Heartsease is an incredibly comfortable home, with a restorative location backing onto endless countryside and no doubt inspiring the idyllic name.


The first level provides open and bright living space; with a welcoming reception hall setting the tone for the property complete with ornate plasterwork, opening to the lounge; beautifully proportioned and ideal for entertaining providing stunning dual aspects over the gardens and beyond, with thoughtful upgrades such as the retained coving and cornicing, feature fireplace, as well as working shutters. Across the hall, a modern and streamlined kitchen with a spacious adjoining open plan dining room, with a cloakroom and excellent in-built storage also opening from the reception hall. Upstairs the grand proportions continue, with two stunning king-size bedrooms, one with modern ensuite shower room, and both of which benefit arguably the most majestic of the hills; extending across endless rolling fields and greenery.

The outdoor space is the perfect complement to the accommodation; hosting a generous landscaped garden and grounds, providing private parking, a garage, lawn and patio, water feature and plentiful borders and beds, there is no shortage of space to enjoy - all with a peaceful sheltering woodland and countryside backdrop.


The property is ideally placed to the edge of Selkirk for all town amenities and with a good selection of small local shops providing for everyday requirements, as well as schools from nursery to secondary level all easily accessible. The property also benefits from easy access to Edinburgh via the A7 and A68 and is within easy reach of the new Borders rail connections with the opening of the Waverley Line and nearby stations at Galashiels and Tweedbank. The area also has good road and bus connections to all central Borders towns and is surrounded by beautiful countryside with rolling hills, scenic valleys and two golf courses all close to hand.
