About the property

In a central position for an excellent range of nearby amenities and transport links, this beautifully presented family home offers a lovely countryside aspect overlooking rolling fields to the rear, with the benefit of catering ably for modern life being a swift drive to Border towns, as well as both Newcastle and Edinburgh in under an hour.

In a private position tucked just off the A68 near Ancrum, the charming cream fronted character property is accessed by a large drive opening to ample parking space at the adjacent garages. A colourful country-cottage style garden is enclosed with timber fencing and provides a welcoming entrance, with a storm porch sheltering the main entrance. The accommodation on the ground floor is bright and well proportioned throughout, with an easy flow between rooms offering flexibility of use; with three comfortable public rooms, ideal as entertaining and living space and a particularly charming traditional farmhouse kitchen at the heart of the property - including a must-have AGA cooker and a lovely dual aspect overlooking the gardens. The family bathroom is also positioned on this level, accessed from the rear hall. Upstairs, there are four comfortable bedrooms, including a master with jack & jill shower room, and an array of storage solutions throughout.

Externally, the garden is beautifully kept and wraps around the property with a fully enclosed level lawn, a timber garage and shed, and an incredible detached garage with annex above. No doubt sought after for those requiring studio or workshop space, or indeed looking for overflow accommodation to the main residence, the impressive dwelling hosts two large garages with up-and-over doors and full electrics, with an external stair to the upper rooms, fitted with flooring and full electrics, and offering plenty of scope to further utilize to suit a buyers requirement.


The property is positioned just out with Ancrum, past the Lilliardsedge Holiday Park turn off on the A68. The village of Ancrum itself remains a popular choice for families and retirees alike; boasting a local pantry shop, pub and restaurant, highly regarded Primary school, and offering the perfect blend of country living while still being well connected to transport links making it a well placed choice for the commuter. Further shopping facilities, medical centres and secondary schooling are available at nearby Jedburgh and Hawick, and the area benefits a great range of country pursuits with a village bowling green as well as local golf courses at Lilliardsedge, Minto, Jedburgh and the Championship course at The Roxburghe. Ancrum is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, offering a quieter pace of life with an abundance of river walks, cycle routes and horse riding trails.
