Hartwoodmyres lies in a magnificent position with breathtaking views across the Ettrick Valley yet only 4 miles from the historic town of Selkirk.
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.
The Ettrick Valley provides exceptional sporting opportunities including fishing, shooting, golf, riding, walking and cycling. From the house there is direct off road access on horseback to miles of bridleways and trails through forestry and open countryside.
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 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.
GARDEN & GROUNDS
The drive leads in from the county road and curves round to the rear of the property, into a courtyard to the back of the farmhouse.
The garden to the front of the property is mainly laid to lawn bounded by mature trees and shrubs interspersed with spring bulbs.
The attractive paddock is situated to the west and extends to approximately 3 acres and is bound by a drystane dyke.
The steading buildings to the rear contain 3 stables and offer very flexible space for a variety of uses.
• Planning Permission has been granted for the development of the two outbuildings which lie to the rear (north) of the farmhouse. The permission granted provides for two, three bedroom houses. These buildings would make equally good office or workshop space.
• To the west of the property permission has been granted for the erection of two detached houses. These will have accommodation arranged over ground and first floors, and will have four bedrooms.
These areas are included in the sale, for further details on either the steadings or the two plots, please contact the selling agents.
