Maryfield is a statuesque property set within beautiful garden grounds of about 1.5 acres. Built for a Mr John Henderson, a budding local entrepreneur in circa 1798, Maryfield is a B-Listed Georgian family home of architectural merit and specifically mentioned in “Pevsner Architectural Guide of the Scottish Borders”.
Maryfield has been a local GP’s residence for many years. It has been occupied by the same medical family for the last 66 years and has been a wonderful home for them. The property still retains many historical and period features such as ornate cornicing and plaster work, grand panelled internal doors, decorative architraves and fanlights, fireplaces and working shutters.
Accessed off Murray Street through large wrought iron gates, the hedge lined driveway leads to a parking area in front of the house. 7 pedestrian steps elevate Maryfield and offer the property an immediate elegancy. Storm doors protect the house from the elements and open to a beautiful stained glass front door which allows natural light to flood the central reception hallway on the ground floor. Either side of the reception hallway are two particularly stunning public rooms. Both the Drawing Room and Dining Room have lovely dual aspects over the gardens and many of the feature previously mentioned above. The third public room is used as an informal family sitting room and is situated near the kitchen towards the back of the house. The kitchen is the heart of the home and offers a comfortable space for informal dining. A good range of wall and base units are positioned around the oil fired AGA. The kitchen also offers free standing appliances and a useful pantry cupboard.
From the reception hallway on the ground floor a sweeping staircase ascends to the first floor landing. The staircase has carved wooden spindles and balustrade and a beautiful stain glass window that depicts the fruits of summer and allows further natural light to flow through the circulation space of Maryfield. The first floor landing currently offers a master bedroom which boast an en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes, 4 further double bedrooms, an office/study and a family bathroom. The landing also offers a stunning 19th century giltwood mirror and ample storage cupboards.
Below the central staircase a further internal stair leads to the garden level of Maryfield. This is very much currently used as utility work space but could easily be converted into a granny annex or holiday rental (subject to the necessary planning). The garden level currently offers a variety of rooms/work spaces and offers access outside to the driveway and family garden.
Maryfield is a wonderful family home in particularly stunning garden grounds. The accommodation within is versatile, and flexible depending on needs, and offers a purchaser a lifestyle that is becoming increasingly sort after.
