Full description

Larkhall Farmhouse and steading enjoy an attractive rural location a short distance to the south west of Jedburgh. From Market Place head up Castlegate, continuing on to the B6358 and Larkhall is the first turning on your right after leaving the town.

Jedburgh is one of the principal towns in the Scottish Borders and is popular with both residents and tourists. The town straddles the A68, which provides good vehicular access both north to Galashiels and Edinburgh and south to the northeast of England. Jedburgh has a good range of amenities, including shops, primary and secondary schools, post office, doctors surgery, hotels, sporting and recreational facilities. The main tourist attractions in the town are the historic ruined Abbey, Castle Jail and Mary Queen of Scots house whilst the surrounding countryside is noted for its scenic beauty and historic interest. There are many fine walks around Jedburgh.

Larkhall Farmhouse and Steading is a traditional detached 3 bedroom farmhouse and steading with potential for conversion to an attractive small residential development. The farmhouse enjoys fine outlooks and the steading comprises 3 traditional stone buildings. The largest of the steading buildings has planning permission for conversion to two dwellings, the other two steading buildings each having planning permission for conversion to a single dwelling. Each of the farmhouse and conversion opportunities being sold with garden ground and car parking space.

Mains electricity is available nearby. The purchaser will be responsible for making the necessary arrangements to connect with Scottish Power.

A mains water supply pipe will be laid to the side of each development site and the purchaser will then be responsible for connecting their property to this. The water supply is mains water pumped from a pumping station to a storage tank and the purchaser will be responsible for the amount of water consumed plus a share of the electricity costs for pumping the water and any maintenance to the system - based on the number of users. The purchaser will be responsible for installing a water meter at a position to be agreed with the seller - as close to the boundary of each site as possible.

A septic tank for foul drainage will be installed by the sellers, along with a foul drainage infrastructure which will be located adjacent to the various sites. The purchaser will be responsible for making arrangements to connect all foul drainage to this point. Surface water drainage is to be dealt with by the purchaser and taken to a soak away.

The purchaser will have a right of access over the access road and this road will be maintained according to use. If the track is upgraded the sellers contribution will be equivalent to the same likely cost of maintaining the track in its present hardcore condition.
