Millfield Farmhouse & Cottages
The property has a delightful rural location approximately 6 miles west of Kelso and the Farmhouse has a south easterly aspect to the front. The River Tweed flows approximately 1 mile to the south and both the rugged Berwickshire coast and Edinburgh are within easy reach. Kelso provides a good range of shops, schools, sporting and recreational facilities and nearby visitors attractions include Smailholm Tower, Mellerstain House and Hume Castle.
Millfield Farmhouse is a particularly attractive traditional detached farmhouse in a delightful rural location. The stylish, family sized accommodation, is full of character and has been modernised, upgraded and extended in recent years. The accommodation includes:-
Ground Floor - Vestibule, dining room, sitting room with conservatory off, farmhouse kitchen and office/potential double bedroom with utility room and shower room off. This ground floor office/bedroom could provide an ideal granny annexe if desired and has a spacious lined attic with Ramsay ladder access.
First Floor - Landing, master bedroom with en suite bathroom, 2nd double bedroom with en suite WC, and family bathroom.
Second Floor - Two inter-connected attic bedrooms alternatively suitable for use as playrooms, workspace or studios.
The traditional stone farm steading, which is understood to have originally been used as a threshing mill for farms in the locality, has been converted (around 2005) to provide three stylish holiday cottages, a games/boot room (with laundry and WC off), workshop and stores. The former central cattle court has been nicely tidied and provides a useful amenity/barbecue area.
Woodman's Cottage Sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
The Mill House Sitting room/dining room, kitchen, WC and 2 bedrooms (each with en suite bathroom).
The Wheel House Sitting room, kitchen, WC and 2 bedrooms (each with en suite bathroom).
The Mill House and the Wheel House have inter-connecting doors at both ground and first floor levels and can be combined for larger parties if desired.
Each of the three holiday cottages has oil fired central heating and double glazing.
The cottages would be suitable for a variety of alternative uses, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents as required. For example, accommodation for elderly relatives, teenagers or possibly longer term lettings.
The property sits within spacious garden grounds, the farmhouse having a lovely mature front garden and there being a gravelled yard/off road parking area to the rear of the farmhouse.
It appears that the steading could be further redeveloped - if desired - subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
