Kirkhouse is an extremely comfortable listed and historical family house dating back to mid-18th Century. The house is in excellent condition throughout having been well looked-after and maintained by the current owners. The main accommodation is spacious and elegant with many original features, and large windows providing bright, well-lit rooms. The 3 formal reception rooms are well-proportioned and the bedrooms are of good size, with an appropriate number of bathrooms. More recently, Kirkhouse has been altered to incorporate a spacious, self-contained 2 bedroom annex with its own family kitchen with log burning stove, large living room and, of particular note, its own conservatory. With its own entrance and utilities, the annex would make for a suitable letting option. Kirkhouse stands in an elevated position, overlooking the surrounding garden and paddocks to the hill beyond. The garden has a beautiful formal knot garden, fenced vegetable garden with greenhouse, orchard, and a number of different areas linked by a network of paths, lawns and walks all set in approximately 5 acres of beautiful, well stocked gardens and mature trees. Kirkhouse boasts a hard tennis court with practice wall, and accessed by its own track, are stables that consist of 3 timber loose boxes, hay store and tack room. The Newhall Burn flows gently through the 3 fenced paddocks. To the south of the house is a traditional range of cobble floored outbuildings, courtyard and a range of timber garages.


Kirkhouse is situated on the edge of Traquair, a beautiful and peaceful rural location with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Approximately 7 miles south east of Peebles and 2 miles from Innerleithen, both towns provide a full range of local shops and services including very good primary and secondary schools. Edinburgh and its International Airport are within easy commuting distance, both approximately 30 miles to the north. Kirkhouse is ideally situated for the wealth of recreational opportunities available in the Scottish Borders, an area renowned for its unspoilt beauty, strong equestrian tradition and fast growing mountain biking scene. Kirkhouse is an excellent base for those who enjoy walking and cycling, whilst for golf enthusiasts, there are excellent courses at Innerleithen, Peebles and Cardrona. Some of the finest fishing in Britain is also available on the nearby River Tweed, and good game shooting (pheasant and grouse) is available locally.
