A CHARMING FARM IN THE TEVIOT VALLEY
Romavale is a charming and productive mixed farm situated on the southern side of the River Teviot close to excellent local amenities and facilities. At its core lies an attractive, modern farmhouse which is light and spacious and it provides all of the conveniences required for a working farming family. Close to the farmhouse there are a range of useful farm
buildings. The surrounding farmland extends to approximately 80 acres in total and lies in a contiguous ring fenced block. The principal fields are edged by mature hedges which provide wonderful shelter for wildlife and stock kept on the ground. The fields are connected by internal gates which allows for easy movement of stock between fields. The northern and western boundary of Romavale is the River Teviot where there are trout fishing rights and many spots to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the river. Along the river there are wonderful walks and for the nature enthusiasts many different species of wildlife can be seen.
Romavale Farmhouse sits in an elevated position and has a wonderful outlook and views over the surrounding farmland and countryside. The farmhouse can be accessed either from a front drive leading through a gated entrance or via the steading to an entrance at the rear of the house. Constructed in the early 1990s, the farmhouse was built to a high specification to ensure it is environmentally efficient and comfortable throughout the year. The accommodation is lovely and bright and is set out over two floors. Throughout the house there is flexible and spacious reception and bedroom space, as shown on the accompanying plans and photographs. The principal reception rooms on the ground floor include a drawing room (with conservatory off), a dining room and open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room. The main reception rooms have French doors which open to a west facing patio. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is the main bedroom (with Jack and Jill shower room), two further bedrooms, office and utility space. In addition, there is a practical double garage with front and back up and over doors. On the first floor there are two further bedrooms with their own bathrooms and a games room which could also be utilised as an additional bedroom if required. Romavale is a sheltered property and is accessed via a private driveway which leads down to the house and farm buildings. To the front of the farmhouse there is a tree lined drive and parking for a number of cars. To the rear there is a further parking area and access to the double garage. The house is surrounded by well maintained and generous gardens which are laid to lawn edged by mature beds, shrubs and fruit trees. To the south and west of the garden there are two paddocks which would be ideally suited for keeping horses or ponies given their close proximity to the house.
Romavale is equipped with a useful range of modern farm buildings which benefit from good access and ample turning space. The surrounding yards and aprons are mainly concreted with some areas of gravel. Whilst the current owners have used the buildings for cattle housing and the storage of hay and straw they could be readily adapted for alternative uses.
The approximate dimensions and construction are as follows:
Cattle court (33m x 32m). Steel portal frame construction with a concrete base and box profile roof. Concrete block walls with timber space boarding above. Equipped with bull pens, drive through passage and an open court. Incorporates a secure workshop in one corner (9.7m x 9.2m).
Straw / general purpose storage (31m x 17.2m across the spans). Steel portal frame construction with a hardcore base and box profile roof. Open sided but partially enclosed by gates for additional stock housing.
The farmland mainly comprises level "holm" land, being largely alluvial silt and brown forest soils overlying gravel, which is predominantly free draining. This fertile farmland is mainly Class 3(1) according to the James Hutton Institute and sits at about 80 metres above sea level.
The land is currently down to temporary pasture and carries a prized herd of pedigree Simmental cattle. The fields are fenced for stock and benefit from mains fed water troughs. All of the principal fields have been cropped in recent years including winter wheat, winter barley and potatoes.
