Built in approximately 1870 but modernised, altered and extended at a later date to provide the present accommodation, Baillieknowe Farmhouse offers an exceptional opportunity to create a beautiful spacious family home set in the heart of Roxburghshire.

Susan Guthrie of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said; “There is generous space throughout the property with huge potential and flexibility to reconfigure and develop the existing accommodation. There are beautiful period features throughout the house which add to the abundance of character on offer.

“From the front of the house, there are unrivalled views south, east and west over the Borders countryside and beyond.  The location, the gardens and the views make this a hugely desirable property, also offering great versatility to suit a range of buyers.” 

To the east of the property there is a mature, ornamental walled garden and to the west there is an outbuilding with several stores which could be used as garaging, stabling or general storage.

With the correct planning consent in place it may also be possible to convert this outbuilding into supplementary accommodation.

The existing accommodation comprises: sitting room, drawing room, dining room, kitchen, larder, utility, office, pantry, laundry, boot room, store and shower room on the ground floor and nine bedrooms (two with dressing room off), two bathrooms and a shower room.

There are generous mature gardens to the front and east side of the house with a pretty ornamental walled garden providing privacy and shelter as well as to enjoy the exceptional views. The garden is laid out with lawns, herbaceous borders, fruit and ornamental trees.

The plot extends to 1.09 acres. An extra area of land, which would be ideal for equestrian purposes, is available by separate negotiation through the selling agent.

The Farmhouse is about three miles north of Kelso, one of the most popular towns in the Borders providing good shopping with supermarkets and local shops as well as recreational and sporting facilities including golf, bowls, curling, fishing and National Hunt Racing.

Bailieknowe Farmhouse is for sale through Galbraith for offers over £625,000.
