The Southern Reporter is this week beginning a series of features looking at some of the great homes on offer here, starting with a cracker of a property in Newcastleton.

While the price tag is certainly on the high side, it really does no harm to look!

The large sitting room with bespoke fireplace, which houses a wood burning stove.

Hewisbridge is a unique country property brimming with style; quality modern design fused perfectly with traditional charming character.

The extended stone-built farmhouse and a fully renovated, detached 17th Century stone barn has endless potential.

With around 50 acres of land, nestled in a stunning location within the Liddesdale Valley, just a stone’s throw from the pretty village of Newcastleton, Hewisbridge Farm offers an enviable lifestyle that’s hard to beat.

It offers 11 acres of grazing, three stables, hay fields, two orchards, beehives (open to negotiation), a bountiful vegetable garden, chickens, greenhouse, summerhouse, over 36 acres of mixed woodland, riverside walks, fishing rights and land on either side of the Liddel Water – and to cap it all, river levels permitting, a bathing pool in the Larriston Burn.

In every respect, it’s a property that epitomises a magical family home.

Inside, the layout and accommodation extends on either side of the central hallway, which divides the three formal reception rooms – a dual-aspect dining room with stone fireplace and views to the front gardens and orchard, large sitting room with bespoke fireplace in oak and ebony, housing a wood-burning stove, and triple-aspect sunroom.

There is also an expansive open-plan kitchen/diner and adjoining family room, the latter with French doors onto the garden terrace, with views down the valley. The ground floor also has a cloakroom, utility and plenty of built-in storage.

Upstairs are four comfortable double bedrooms, including a master with ensuite, and the main family bathroom complete with freestanding roll-top bath.

The two-storey barn next to the house – originally dating from the 17th century and completed in 1851 – was given a new roof, floor and completely renovated. It comprises the lower level garage and various stores, while an external stone staircase leads up to a large floored space suitable for family use, as a home office, games room or studio.

The current owners established orchards, gardens, stables, and planted over 20,000 deciduous trees and new hedging.

It’s possibly the best £825,000 you’d ever spend.
