This stunning detached Georgian farmhouse has been thoughtfully extended and blends the charm of the original property with modern comforts and styling. Hartwoodburn is ideally positioned just outside Selkirk, with easy access to road links, and enjoys outlooks across idyllic rolling Ettrick countryside. The original farmhouse dates back to the 1830's and offers exceptionally well proportioned and bright accommodation; with wonderful levels of natural light throughout the property and generous room sizes. The extension has been tastefully designed and finished, and is in-keeping with the original property, offering further living space, a convenient ground level bedroom and a spiral stair to the first floor which is ideal as a hobby or work space and bedroom. Hartwoodburn is an enviable family home; with spacious reception rooms and five well proportioned double bedrooms, the property also enjoys a sizeable enclosed garden with wonderful countryside walks nearby.

Situated just over two miles from Selkirk, the property enjoys the best of both worlds; surrounded by beautiful countryside and set just off the A7 linking to Selkirk, Hawick and further Border towns. The nearby town of Selkirk is ideal for all town amenities; with a good selection of small local and independent shops providing for everyday requirements, and schools from nursery to secondary level all easily accessible. The area boasts a variety of leisure activities including golf at Selkirk and nearby Minto courses, tennis, and is an extremely popular area for horse riding- with an equestrian centre, riding school and annual Common Riding. The property benefits from easy access to Edinburgh and is within easy reach of the new Borders rail connections, with nearby stations at Galashiels and Tweedbank.

This is a wonderful space, as attractive as it is practical, with a good flow from kitchen to sitting area, with a relaxed feel and spiral staircase at the far end. The kitchen itself is fitted with country style units and worktops, with the Rayburn set in a red brick alcove and creating a lovely focal point.

From the kitchen, the living area allows adequate space for dining and further freestanding furnishings and is decorated in neutral palate with wood effect flooring and down lighters. To the far end, a door opens to a generous double bedroom with a further door extending to an inner hall accessing the utility room and shower room. The spiral staircase from the living area leads to the first floor of the extension which is a most versatile space; currently used as a home office at the mezzanine with separate bedroom, the space is ideal for teenagers or further hobby space.
