Farmhouse with added benefits
Our property of the week offers an opportunity for countryside living with spectacular views, while still being within comfortable reach of nearby amenities, as well as routes both north and southbound.
Wollrig Farmhouse in Ashkirk is a substantial detached five-bedroom period property, in an idyllic rural location, with superb countryside views which includes a field adjacent to the homestead, with a natural stream running through it.
A range of outbuildings offers great potential for further development, and an attached cottage provides self-contained accommodation, offering an income opportunity if desired.
Other outbuildings include a barn/games room and a byre workshop.
The generous grounds include a courtyard, ample parking and car port.
The farmhouse itself provides generous-proportioned accommodation with a flexible layout.
Outside, the gardens are generous, including a pleasant courtyard around which the property is centred, along with a vegetable garden, orchard, and chicken house, greenhouse and garden shed.
Accomodation includes: a hallway, lounge, dining room, sitting room, dining kitchen, utility with cloakroom/WC, four bedrooms, fifth bedroom/study, and a family bathroom.
The adjoining Old Byre Cottage has a hallway, sitting/dining room, kitchen, and a double bedroom with en-suite.
But it's the location that’s a real winner.
The farmhouse itself lies around a mile away from the village of Ashkirk, which has a restaurant and popular golf course and offers easy access to the towns of Selkirk and Hawick.
The relatively easy access to Midlothian towns, the Edinburgh City Bypass and indeed, the city centre – and indeed the Borders Railway terminal at Tweedbank being a 20-minute drive away – makes this an area of real attraction to the commuter who wishes to live away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The property is on the market for offers over £510,000.
