3 Bed House - Detached
Offers Over £395,000
A country classic with endless potential, Langrig sits in the picturesque hamlet of Kirkton; originally a smallholding, the generous plot now provides both a stylish and sizable property, alongside excellent outdoor space in a restorative location.
Kirkton is the ideal choice for those looking to escape to the country; immersed in a beautiful border landscape of rolling fields and glorious greenery, the peaceful spot provides plenty to keep the keen gardener busy with its productive vegetable garden and orchard – and is only a short drive to further civilisation and amenities, as and if required!
The property itself provides well-appointed accommodation with a focus on natural light, and every effort in the design of the recent extension ensures those all-important outlooks are provided. The feature kitchen and garden room is the showcase of this home; with a wonderfully social flow of dining and living areas, the glazing on all sides allows an open panaroma of the colourful garden grounds. A further cozy lounge with a nostalgic 30’s fireplace gives a nod to the original build, with a useful home study and double bedroom and shower room also positioned on ground level. Upstairs, two good sized double bedrooms and a further shower room are ideal for guests. The outdoor space is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown, hosting landscaped and expertly cultivated areas of lawns punctuated by colourful borders and beds, with mature sheltering trees ensuring absolute privacy. A courtyard opening from the kitchen provides for al fresco days and nights with a tranquil water feature and patio, with orchard, vegetable garden, workshop, garage and stores giving a chance of the ‘good life’ in this idyllic spot.
Kirkton is a charming hamlet of traditional properties, situated in stunning Border countryside. The increasingly popular village of Denholm is close to hand; a quaint village with an attractive Green at its centre, Denholm enjoys excellent amenities with independent shops, two popular village pubs, a well regarded Italian Bistro, coffee shop, garage and Primary School. Secondary education facilities are available nearby at Hawick or Jedburgh, with private education located at St Mary’s in Melrose. Further shopping and amenities are provided by Hawick, which lies some 4 miles distant and includes major supermarkets, banks, doctor’s surgery and dentist, with leisure and sporting facilities available including the swimming and sports centre. The much acclaimed Wilton Park is popular for walks and an active theatre and cinema scene thrives at ‘The Heart of Hawick’. The area is renowned for its beautiful scenery and has strong rugby and horse riding connections.
Transport links are well provided; with Denholm offering swift access via the A698 and easy access to both the A7 at Hawick and nearby A68 - linking Kirkton to further Border towns and making it manageable for the commuter. The Borders Railway at Galashiels and Tweedbank lies 25 minutes away, providing a rail link to the heart of Edinburgh, and with good links to airports at both Newcastle and Edinburgh.
