About the property

Boasting a magnificent outlook over the Tweed Valley, this detached three bedroom bungalow enjoys a super semi-rural position; set in a large private plot and offering exciting opportunities for a purchaser to make it their own

Located in a particularly pretty semi-rural position, Vire is a detached three bedroom bungalow which sits within a large and highly private plot. The elevated position of the bungalow affords a truly breath-taking outlook over the Tweed Valley with the river in the distance and The Cheviot Hills beyond to the south. Originally built in the 1980’s for the manager of the neighbouring Hirsel Estate, Vire is surrounded on all sides by the sizeable and highly private gardens, which now offer lots of opportunities for further landscaping and potential to further extend the bungalow if desired. Internally, the accommodation has been well maintained and cared for, whilst now providing scope for a purchaser to add their own stamp and create their own family home.

Homebank is a working farm located just outside Birgham village; both Kelso and Coldstream lie only a few miles distant each offering a good range of amenities, meaning Vire is an excellent choice for those seeking a rural setting yet with easy access to local towns and villages.


Birgham is a thriving village with its popular village pub and restaurant. Educational and sporting facilities and quality shops are nearby at Kelso or Coldstream where the Hirsel Estate is a particular attraction. Birgham has good links with Edinburgh and Newcastle an hour by car and the main east coast rail connection at Berwick-upon-Tweed some eighteen miles distant. Birgham also benefits from a regular bus service between the neighbouring towns with connections to both Edinburgh and Newcastle.
