Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Duncanhaugh Mill Farmhouse is a most attractive stone built period farmhouse positioned in an idyllic rural setting in the Bowmont Water Valley, close to the sought-after village of Town Yetholm.

The property has been sympathetically refurbished over the years by the current owners creating a spacious and welcoming family home. Sitting in approximately an acre of landscaped gardens and grounds with stunning rural views, the property also boasts a range of stone outbuildings including an impressive former granary, offering a fantastic opportunity to convert into further accommodation or holiday let accommodation, subject to planning.

The farmhouse is thought to have origins dating back to the 17th century with later additions and improvements added during the Victorian era. The current owners have been in residence for many years and have thoughtfully and tastefully restored the property over time to create a wonderful rural family home, with stunning views from almost every window, which stills offers a new owner huge potential to develop the property and outbuildings further.

This charming and characterful period family home offers the best of both worlds, enjoying an idyllic and very peaceful rural position affording fabulous views of the Bowmont Water Valley and Cheviots at the end of the Pennine Way, but within easy walking distance of the nearby villages of Town Yetholm and Kirk Yetholm. The villages offer two public houses, a primary school, butchers, garage and a village shop. The nearest market town is Kelso which offers a much wider range of amenities including supermarkets, banks, restaurants and high school, whilst private schooling is available at St Mary’s in Melrose and Longridge near Berwick. The Scottish Borders is well-known for its stunning scenery and quality of life and there are a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area including fishing on the River Tweed, rough and syndicated shooting, horse riding, golf and a selection of splendid walks including the Southern Upland Way. For commuting purposes Edinburgh is approximately 50 miles away and there is a mainline rail station at Berwick which links to Edinburgh to the north and has a high speed link to London to the south. The new Borders Railway which opened in September 2015 also offers regular direct services into Edinburgh from Tweedbank and Galashiels.
