Hartwoodmyres lies in a magnificent position with breathtaking views across the Ettrick Valley yet only 4 miles from the historic town of Selkirk.

There are good transport links both north and south to either Edinburgh or Newcastle.
Excellent state education is available in Selkirk as well as private schooling at St. Mary's in Melrose. In addition a wide range of private schools can be found in Edinburgh.
Selkirk has arguably the most impressive setting of the border towns with the surrounding heather clad hills and its setting on the Ettrick Water. The town offers a good range of services including two supermarkets, hotels, shops and professional services, as well as tennis, a golf club and rugby club. Horse riding is a Border tradition with the famous Selkirk Common Ridings taking place in June. There is direct off road access on horseback to miles of bridleways and trails through forestry and open countryside.
The Ettrick Valley provides exceptional sporting opportunities including fishing, shooting, golf, riding, walking and cycling.
Hartwoodmyres is a traditional farmhouse part, of which is thought to date back to the late 17th century. The house was extended more recently and now provides light and spacious family accommodation with the benefit of a guest/holiday wing. Most of the main rooms in the house look south over the garden.
The three main reception rooms are situated to the front of the house; the spacious breakfasting kitchen has a two oven Aga and fitted kitchen and opens into a family room. The sitting room is a an attractive room with solid fuel stove, recessed cupboard/shelving and views over the garden and surrounding countryside. It would be the ideal place to add a conservatory or sun room, subject to the necessary consent.
A dog-leg staircase from the hall leads to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a walk-through double bedroom and family bathroom. An en suite could easily be created (subject to the necessary consent) for the master bedroom by using the storage space, which has plumbing in place, currently accessed from the guest wing.
The Guest Wing provides flexible further living accommodation either on its own or as part of the main house, there is a spacious dual aspect sitting room, two bedrooms and bathroom.
