Full description

The Post House has an enviable location on the eastern edge of Midlem.

Midlem is a picturesque conservation village above the Ale Valley. The village comprises houses and cottages round a village green which has the Old Smithy as its centrepiece. The village enjoys extensive views over the Cheviot Hills, Carter Bar and Ruberslaw.

Midlem is situated close to the historic town of Selkirk which provides a good range of amenities including shops, primary and secondary level schools and recreational and sporting facilities. The village telephone exchange has been upgraded and is now fibre enabled and therefore providing high speed
broadband connectivity.

The A7 trunk road, connecting the village to Carlisle and the M6 is 5 miles west of Midlem and the A68 is 6 miles east. The Scottish Borders Railway is just 8 miles away and provides a frequent train service to Edinburgh.

The Post House is a detached, traditional stone house believed to date from the 19th Century and was previously used as a post office and public house. The accommodation is laid out on two floors and retains many traditional features such as exposed stone work, fireplaces and woodwork.

The accommodation benefits from the installation of log burning stoves in both the kitchen/dining room and sitting room and the addition of a conservatory to the rear of the house.

From the first floor landing is a step ladder leading to the floored attic (9.70m x 4.84m) which provides a useful storage space.

The stone built bothy on the south east side of the house is currently used as a storage room and accessed externally. However, it offers scope to extend the current accommodation.

On the north east side of the house is a large stone built single garage.

Outside the house benefits from a sheltered and enclosed inner garden which is mostly laid to lawn. Beyond is a larger enclosed garden which is planted with mature fruit bushes and decorative shrubs and plants.
