Substantial family home with outstanding country views, extensive garden, woodlands, paddocks and stables
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.
