About this property

  • The Paddock has an unrivalled position on the brow of a hill, looking over the Scottish Borders countryside. The house faces due south and has accommodation on two levels with a combination of open plan living and cosy well-proportioned rooms. The kitchen / breakfast room is open plan to the family room and is a great space for entertaining or for the whole family. There is a fitted country style kitchen with integrated appliances, good worktop space and a large larder store. There is plenty of space for a dining table and there are multiple sets of doors out to the garden. The other half of the room is home to a family seating area adjacent to a wood burning stove and there is a spiral staircase up to the bedrooms and shower room.

    Located across the main reception hallway is a south facing reception room. The sitting room is a bright space thanks to the large bay window and has a stone fireplace and surround with large wood burning stove. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a bedroom, shower room and boot room, which is fully fitted with storage cupboards, a WC and sink.

    The first floor is split by a central attic which provides useful storage space. The master bedroom and bedroom 2 share a large bathroom and are accessed via stair from the main hallway. The two bedrooms on the west side of the house are accessed from the family room and share a shower room.

    The gardens which surround the house are well stocked and provide a range of colours throughout the year. There is a real variety of plants, shrubs and trees interspersed throughout the garden which is mainly laid to lawn. To the rear of the house is a large timber summer house which faces south. Beyond the garden is a stable complex with concrete floor, power and lighting. There are three loose boxes and a tack room. Both paddocks can be reached easily from here.

    To the north of the house is the woodland paddock and a strip of mature trees which runs the length of the second paddock. The main paddock has a stone wall and timber fence enclosing it and is approximately 1.4 acres. There are PV panels which are on a feed in tariff scheme until July 2037. The paddock also has planning permission. More information can be found on the Scottish Borders planning portal.

Local information

  • Positioned on top of a hill in the Scottish Borders, The Paddock 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. These include independent retailers, cafés, pubs, and hotels, restaurants, a deli, butcher, baker, gallery and the Lauder golf course which is located nearby.
  • There is a local primary school in Lauder, with further education available at the highly regarded Earlston High School, as well as St Mary's School in Melrose. 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 offers a daily bus service from Lauder.
  • Lauder is commutable to Edinburgh, being 27 miles from the city centre, and is well served by the Stow rail station on the Borders line to Edinburgh Waverley. 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 King's 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.
  • The area provides excellent opportunities for the country sports enthusiast, with fishing, golfing, horse riding and shooting all available locally, as well as a rich rugby culture. Salmon fishing can be taken on the Tweed, Whiteadder and Teviot rivers and shooting arranged on local estates. Golfers enjoy a choice of ten courses in the locality, including an 18 hole course at Duns and The Roxburgh championship course outside Kelso.
