5 Bed House - Detached
Offers Over £525,000
A stunning architect designed country home, set in a tranquil semi rural position just out with the popular villages of Lauder and Oxton, and ideal for those seeking a country home suiting commuters, families and lifestyle balance purchasers.
Hosting a choice of welcoming public spaces, the property provides five spacious bedrooms, including a master with ensuite, excellent storage and a large utility and boot room, with a fantastic first floor office with its own separate entrance and balcony – perfect for homeworking.
Vineleaf is a striking detached home set against a glorious countryside backdrop, conveniently placed for excellent access to the charming villages of Lauder and Oxton, and within easy reach of the linking A68 connecting north to Edinburgh in around 30 minutes.
This impressive family home has been beautifully maintained and upgraded by the current owners to provide a wonderful space for family life and entertaining friends, with a generous garden and plot extending to just under an acre, all with a restorative backdrop of rolling fields.
Built in 2004 Vineleaf is positioned just a few miles from Lauder in the countryside hamlet of Carfrae, accessed wither via the Carfrae turn off just after Oxton off the A68, or behind the Carfraemill Hotel via Hillhouse Farm– making it an enviable balance between rural life while still catering easily for modern life. Of particular note, the property is in a strong school catchment for both Lauder and Channelkirk Primary schools, and the well reputed Earlston High School.
The property sits in a gently elevated plot, enclosed by mature hedging and sheltering trees, with a large stretch of lawn wrapping round the property and a generous drive extending to an EV charging point. The ground floor opens to a wonderful choice of public spaces, all interlinking and offering an open plan feel within the defined areas; with a fantastic garden room to the far end, a bright dining room following onto the country kitchen, a charming lounge with feature stove, and a further conservatory area accessing the underfloor heated utility and boot room. Conveniently, a ground floor bedroom and shower room are also situated on this level, with a spiral stair accessing the home office and studio space from the utility room – the studio is a well-considered addition which creates a self-contained work, study or hobby space, or also suitable for guests.
Upstairs, a spacious landing extends to the bedrooms and family bathroom; with three comfortable and bright double bedrooms, a sumptuous master suite sits to the far end of the landing with stunning exposed beams and far reaching countryside views, and an adjoining elegant fitted shower room. The family bathroom has been recently upgraded and features a fantastic freestanding bathroom.
The external space is a wonderful complement to the property and lifestyle; abundant with opportunity and space, the plot is largely laid to lawn with a super decked terraced encircling the property and opening from the public rooms. A raised deck balcony is accessed from the home office/studio space and the garden. The top section of garden hosts a large timber workshop with full electrics, with a further timber shed and woodstore located on the drive.
The property sits on a quiet country road just 4 miles from Lauder and 1 mile from Oxton, surrounded by beautiful Borders landscape. The property benefits from an excellent position for commuters via the A68, and within catchment for the renowned Earlston High School – recently referenced in Tatler Magazine as one of the best performing secondary schools in Scotland.
Lauder itself is an area surrounded by beautiful Borders landscape, with local views across the stunning Thirlestane Castle, towards rolling fields and countryside. The village of Lauder itself has a host of excellent amenities; from independent retailers including fruit and vegetable shop, butchers, baker, restaurants and cafes, to excellent sporting facilities including golf course, tennis club and a strong horse riding community.
