Rowantree Cottage was built in the late 19th Century. It is a charming B-listed stone cottage with a feature thatched roof, one of the few in the Scottish Borders.

The characterful property also features a diamond pane window on the northern gable as well as diamond panes in the front and back doors.

Polly Cregan of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “This is a picture-postcard pretty cottage that would make a wonderful primary residence or holiday home. The property has also been previously used as a successful holiday let, given its proximity to popular walking routes and the beautiful surrounding scenery. It is rare to find a thatched cottage for sale in this region, particularly one in such an idyllic setting. We expect a great deal of interest.”
