A magnificent house site in a spectacular elevated position


Wanton Walls is situated in superb countryside, near to the village of Lauder. Lauder has a good range of local facilities, while Galashiels has a wider range of services, including a Tesco and ASDA superstores. Lauder has a first class local pub, The Black Bull, which serves excellent bar meals. The village also has a good primary school and Earlston provides the secondary schooling.
Lauder is commutable to Edinburgh, being 27 miles from the city centre. 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. Berwickshire is one of the genuinely rural areas of Scotland. Despite being accessible to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, 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. Salmon fishing can be taken on the Tweed, Whitadder and Teviot and shooting arranged on local estates. Golfers will enjoy a choice of 10 courses in the locality, including an 18 hole course at Duns and The Roxburgh championship course outside Kelso.


Wanton Walls is a magnificent site, which benefits from wonderful far reaching views over the Lauderdale countryside to the south.

The site is serviced and benefits from mains water and electricity. The foundations have been constructed and comply with NHBC criteria.

The work to date has been carried out by JT Dawson Ltd, a small development company with a growing reputation for building high quality residential property. They built the adjacent house and would be prepared to enter discussions to implement the work to complete this build.

The accommodation once completed is to be arranged over ground and first floors. On the ground floor there will be a central hall, from which the rest of the ground floor accommodation will be accessed. This includes a drawing room, sitting room, study, large open plan dining kitchen, and utility room. On the first floor there will be 5 bedrooms (2 with en suite shower rooms) and a family bathroom. There will also be an integrated double garage.

Square Footage: 1,733 sq ft
Acreage: 0.2 Acres


From Edinburgh, travel south on the A68, through Dalkeith, over Soutra, as far as the roundabout at Carfraemill. Turn left here, onto the A697 signposted for Coldstream. After approximately 3.5 miles, the road swings right with a long right hand bend followed by a left. The entrance to Wanton Walls will be seen shortly after on the left (if you get to the Lauder turning you have gone too far). Follow the road up and the site is on the left hand side.
