Tweedhopefoot Cottage is a traditional shepherds cottage originally dating from the 19th century with more recent extensions completed around 2011.
The property is built mainly from stone with a smooth white render and lying under a slated roof, it offers generous accommodation over two floors.
Tweedhopefoot Cottage has two modern steel framed buildings clad in green plastic coated profile sheeting. The main building is entirely foam insulated (approximately 18.6 x 18.5 metres) and has a mezzanine office and storage area above an internal workshop which is insulated to a higher level. It has three phase power, WC and a water supply. There is a lean-to building adjoined which houses a diesel tank. The second building (approximately 15 x 5 metres) has previously been used as a garage. Both sheds have roller doors and alarm systems. In addition there are two timber sheds to the rear of the house.
The property is accessed via a shared private drive which leads past The Old Tweedhopefoot School, which is a small timber and corrugated iron building of some significant historical interest.
Tweedhopefoot Cottage stands in about 13 acres of garden and woodland through which runs a burn feeding two attractive ponds.
There is a substantial area of monoblock paving that provides parking space in front of the cottage, and this extends towards the steel framed outbuildings to the west and east. The garden ground to the south is fenced and predominantly laid to lawn with some herbaceous borders.
