About the property

An impressive period property, in an elevated position with majestic views over the rolling countryside and beyond. The Firs West is an enviable family home.

The Firs West is one half of an imposing Victorian mansion in the Sunnyhill area of Hawick enjoying a quiet edge of countryside location with fine views over the town and surrounding hills. Set on the fringes of magnificent countryside yet close to the town, The Firs is an attractive blonde sandstone property extending to an impressive 307m2, originally constructed in 1860 and later converted to the current accommodation in approximately the 1970’s. The Firs West retains many authentic features including the original main staircase and ornate cornicing. The tiled entrance leads to an impressive welcoming central hallway with a choice of public rooms to front, perfect for hosting family or friends, including drawing room with recessed wood burner stove and large feature bay windows to allow plentiful natural light and enjoy the outlooks along the Teviot valley, sitting room presented in contemporary tones and separate dining room.

There is a useful cloakroom off the hall and country style kitchen, featuring five door Aga and neutral coloured wall and base units with a utility room sitting quietly to the rear with door leading out to the gardens.

A full height mid landing window is a striking feature and leads to three generous bedrooms, family bathroom and shower room. An internal back staircase leads to the top floor with two further bedrooms, a dressing room, box room and home office room to the front with a feature window providing the most wonderful outlooks over the town and beyond.

Externally, there is a front lawn and further area of garden to the side which belongs the property, with a raised decked seating area the perfect suntrap for alfresco dining which leads on to a private sheltered woodland edge walled garden, bordered by mature plants & shrubbery.

Adjacent to the house, sits a useful double garage, car port and workshop area providing useful external storage space, with ample parking by means of gravelled driveway next the property itself.

Unquestionably a stunning home and enviable find for any buyer in search of a balance between country living with access to amenities.


Sunnyhill is a true prime location with former mansions and estates of the old mill owners including the Pringle family and it retains a feeling of quality and space with generous grounds and established woodlands providing shelter and a fantastic setting. Hawick is a true Borders town with strong links to the farming and textiles industries and with a proud rugby tradition. The town centre is vibrant having seen much investment in recent years and includes attractions such as the Textiles Museum and refurbished Tower Mill with its glass floor and Cinema complex and a number of quality shops and established business with a choice of supermarket shopping also available locally including Morrison’s, Sainsbury’s, Aldi & Lidl and. Local distances are 50 miles to Edinburgh, 30 miles to Carlisle, and 70 miles to Newcastle.
