The Steading is in an excellent rural, yet accessible, location a short distance to the north of Hawick. The house enjoys extensive south easterly outlooks over
Teviotdale to the Liddlesdale Hills and Ruberslaw.
Hawick, with a population of around 15,000, is an important Borders town which has grown up at the junction of the Teviot and the Slitrig rivers.
The town has a good range of shops, primary and secondary schools, sporting and recreational facilities.
The surrounding countryside is known for its scenic beauty and offers excellent horse riding and hill walking opportunities.
Hawick straddles the A7 and enjoys good road links with the north of England and southern and central
The Steading is an impressive and exceptionally well designed steading conversion which provides generous, bright and well appointed family sized
accommodation. The building dates from 1705 and the conversion with extension was completed in 2005.
The easily managed accommodation is predominantly south facing and makes the most of the far reaching vistas. A particularly fine feature of the house is the spacious kitchen/breakfast room
which leads into the family room. The kitchen has been fitted with solid wood floor and wall units with an island and a 4 oven Aga.
Outside the French doors, leading off the kitchen, is a sheltered and paved terrace which provides an ideal spot for al fresco dining.
The house is surrounded by a charming garden with lawns to the front. Behind the house is the sizable rear garden that features an attractive shrubbery which has been thoughtfully landscaped to provide an interesting focal point.
Beyond the garden is a fenced paddock (1.23 acres). To the east of the house is a gully that is partially wooded and has the Boonraw Burn, a tributary of the River Teviot, running through. An ornamental pond fed by the Boonraw Burn has been developed to provide an interesting water feature and diverse habitat for wildlife.
