Not one but two cracking homes

This week, we can’t decide on a single property of the week, so we’re sharing two of them.

The converted schoolhouse in Glendouglas.

Given the current hot market for Borders properties, there are many fantastic homes set to be snapped up.

Firstly, this local converted schoolhouse in Glendouglas enjoys unspoiled views over the surrounding countryside.

Built in 1887, the accommodation has been modernised, altered and extended over the years in order to provide the attractive residential property that it is today.

Thorneydykes Farmhouse in Westruther

Internally the property consists of a entrance porch, hallway, open plan living room/kitchen, sitting room, dining room, bedroom, utility room, bathroom and separate WC compartment on the ground floor as well as a landing, two further bedrooms, a store room and a shower room on the first floor.

Decorated beautifully throughout, the schoolhouse retains a lot of its traditional charm and is draped in period features yet enjoys a modern twist.

Externally, the surrounding gardens are well-maintained and are made up of a mix of seating and lawn areas, as well as generous parking facilities.

Fantastic for those looking for their forever family home, or those looking to pull away from a busy city lifestyle, School House really does need to be viewed in order to be fully appreciated.

It’s on the market for offers over £375,000 … contact Cullen Kilshaw on 01835 282158 to view.

We also love this other rural home in Westruther, Thorneydykes Farm House.

It’s a substantial five-bedroom detached family home that boasts an abundance of attractive features throughout, including a sun room, office space and substantial surrounding garden.

It’s a great property for someone who would like a modernisation project, and has a guide price of £380,000. Call Cullen Kilshaw in Melrose on 01896 942804 to view this cracking property.
