The impressive Larch House, in Clerklands, near Lilliesleaf.

Larch House – an architect-designed property clad in Scottish larch – incorporates a scenic backdrop which overlooks extensive and bountiful gardens and takes inspirations from its glorious positon with prominent oak features, elegant streamlined flourishes and a focus on natural light.

Four of the property’s five bedrooms, including a master suite with bathroom and dressing room, are on the ground floor, which also has a family bathroom and utility room.

Upstairs, there is a gallery library, living room, a study (or bedroom five), a shower room, media room, open plan kitchen and dining room.

This impeccable home looks over the four acres of land that comes with it.

There’s also annexe accomodation, Little Larch, with the same upside-down feel, with the bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, and open-plan kitchen, living and dining room upstairs, with adjoining double garage.

This offers income potential, as a self-contained holiday let, with relevant permissions.

Outside, there is a timber summerhouse, potting shed, greenhouse, boiler room and timber store, and a detached double garage.

The external space flows from the accommodation with walkway and balconies, as well as four acres of beautiful garden to enjoy.

Situated close to the Borders towns of Melrose and Selkirk, the home is in prime position within the central Borders for a wide range of leisure activities and transport links.

Surrounded by stunning local scenery for a change of pace, the home’s flexible layout caters for modern buyers.

Offers over £595,000 are invited.
