About this property

  • Howieson Hall Farmhouse occupies a spacious plot on the outskirts of West Linton. The house has accommodation arranged over one level with a spacious open plan sitting and dining room at its core. The front door is located within the central courtyard where there is parking and a garage and it leads into a vestibule with cloakroom. The kitchen is off to the left and is fitted with a range of base units with a tiled worktop. There are large windows overlooking the garden which allow light to fill the room. There is a small porch to the side and doors out to the garden.

    The sitting room and dining room are open plan but slightly separated by a fireplace which extends into the sitting room. There are large windows and sliding doors to both the east and south which allow light to fill the rooms throughout the day. Off the sitting room is a study overlooking the garden.

    There are three bedrooms off the corridor leading from the sitting room. The principal bedroom is located at the end and has an en suite bathroom with shower. There are a further two double bedrooms with a family bathroom situated between.

    On the east side of the house is a generous patio where outdoor dining and entertaining can be enjoyed overlooking the surrounding fields. Beyond this are spacious lawns and tucked in a sheltered corner of the garden is a summer house. The lawns wrap around the house on three sides and there are a variety of colourful herbaceous borders. A gated driveway leads from the main road into the central courtyard.

    Paddock: Opposite the entrance to Howieson Hall Farmhouse is a grass paddock of about 2 acres which can be made available in addition and by separate negotiation.
