    About this property

    • Built in 2008, Barlogan House is an exceptional modern family home, with open plan accommodation, generously sized bedrooms, and lovely views over undisturbed countryside.

      Approached by a tarmac driveway, the front exterior of the property is striking in its symmetry, and is complemented by two wings, one housing an annexe and the other an integrated garage. The front door opens up onto a welcoming entrance hall with feature curved staircase leading up to the first floor landing. A cloakroom and storage cupboard are both accessed from the hall.

      French doors lead into the drawing room, which features a log burner, access into the annexe, and dual aspect views looking out over the front drive and the rear garden and surrounding countryside. A formal dining room can be opened up to the drawing room again through French doors. The dining room is spacious and perfect for entertaining, a south facing bay area features four large windows and patio doors opening to the rear garden. From the dining room, the open plan kitchen can be accessed.

      With a spacious open plan layout, the kitchen features base and wall units with an island housing integrated appliances, and a large Rangemaster cooker and separate larder. The breakfast area is situated to the rear of the property, next to patio doors opening onto the rear garden. There is a link to the entrance hall, as well as to a back hallway from where the garage is accessed. This is also where a boot room currently used as a commercial kitchen, a utility room and cloakroom are located. There is a side door to the front of the property. A south facing family room looks out over the open countryside, and features a wood burning stove and a back staircase to the first floor landing.

      Off the first floor landing is a family bathroom and linen cupboard; a Ramsay ladder leads up to a floored loft with four skylights. The space is fully lined and is wired with lighting and power sockets. The spacious master bedroom features an en suite shower room, dressing room, and balcony providing a panoramic countryside view. Four further bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms are all located off the first floor landing. Three of those bedrooms lead onto a spacious playroom, which leads down to the family room through the back staircase.

      Annexe
      To the west of the property is an integrated annexe which has its own front door, but can also be accessed internally from the drawing room. The annexe would be well suited to relatives, holiday lets, or a long term tenant. It features an open plan kitchen and sitting room with patio doors opening up on to the rear garden, and bedroom with en suite shower room on the ground floor. On the first floor is a second large bedroom with en suite shower room. The annexe is currently let out for a monthly rent of £700.

      Outside

      A paddock extending to around 0.8 acres lies to the west of the driveway that approaches the property. The garden is separated from the paddock by a wooden fence, and surrounds the property to the south, bordered a low lying hedge. The driveway leads to both the integrated garage, with floored loft above currently used as an office, and barn which is currently used as a workshop.

    Local information

    • Positioned on top of a hill in the Scottish Borders, Barlogan House enjoys spectacular undisturbed views over rolling countryside to the Cheviot Hills beyond. Located a mile from the historic town of Lauder, the house is well served by the town's excellent range of local amenities and services.

There are a number of independent schools in Edinburgh which is within commuting distance via the A68 and the Borders Railway line. Loretto School in Musselburgh offer a daily bus service from Lauder.

Edinburgh Airport (34 miles) has a wide range of domestic and international flights. Berwick-upon-Tweed has a mainline railway station providing direct trains to London Kings Cross and Edinburgh Waverley. Despite its good transport connections and accessibility to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, Berwickshire is one of the genuinely rural areas of Scotland: the county has a low population and can therefore provide a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare.

Salmon fishing can be taken on the Tweed, Whiteadder and Teviot rivers and shooting arranged on local estates.
