Farmhouse with outbuildings and acreage in the Scottish Borders
Beautifully renovated late 17th centry Borders farmhouse with hall, 3 main reception rooms, kitchen, sun room, 4 bedrooms, utility, 2 bath/shower rooms. Steading buildings with development potential. Beautiful, private, mature garden. Paddocks. In all approximately 15.92 acres. EPC rating E Set in its own private garden, Thickside House is believed to date from the late 17th century and nestles in a small wooded glen with wonderful views to the east and south across the surrounding countryside. Over the last ten years the house has been completely renovated by the present owners to provide an extremely comfortable and welcoming home. With rendered walls under a slate roof, Thickside House occupies an elevated position with a south easterly aspect. Therefore the property benefits from a wonderfully light and bright atmosphere. It provides flexible family accommodation together with well proportioned, formal reception rooms with wood burning stoves and integral bookcases. The major alterations, renovations and improvements undertaken since 2003 have been far in their extent and allows for a comfortable arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms. Of particular note is the extraordinarily high standard of decoration/finish. Importantly, the roof has been renewed, new rain water goods have been installed as well as new plumbing, central heating system and an Aga. A full list of works undertaken and completed is available from the selling agent. Close to the back door of the house is an attractive range of traditionally built outbuildings, constructed of stone under a slate roof which, subject to obtaining the necessary consent, could be converted to a number of uses including workshops, stabling, secondary accommodation and/or office space.
