This is a highly attractive package offering accommodation, land and outbuildings in a peaceful and scenic location close to Hownam on the edge of the Cheviots.

Although secluded Beirhope Farmhouse is close to Morebattle (5 miles) which boasts a primary school, church, village shop and pub. In addition it is easily accessible to the bustling market towns of Jedburgh (7 miles) and Kelso (12.5 miles) which are both popular tourist destinations and provide schooling, health centres, shops, supermarkets and a wide range of professional services.

The Scottish Borders is a particularly attractive area and is ideal for those looking for a scenic, rural home whilst being within easy reach of Edinburgh and Scotland’s central belt. The Borders travel links with Edinburgh have been enhanced by the re-opening of the Waverley Rail Link.
 
From Morebattle head south towards Hownam along the unclassified road that runs alongside the Kale Water. On entering Hownam take the first right turn and proceed for 1.5 miles. The entrance to Beirhope is the second turn on the left.
 
Beirhope comprises an attractive package including a farmhouse, derelict cottage, traditional and modern farm outbuildings and south and west lying grazing land.

The house is a detached, traditional, south-facing farmhouse built principally of stone under a slate roof. It is on the lower side of the steading and looks over the grazing land. The accommodation is laid out on two floors and benefits from double glazing and oil fired central heating. The house would benefit from some modernisation and there would appear to be potential to modify the existing accommodation to incorporate the floored attic room above the kitchen. A large enclosed garden sits to the south and east of the house.

The derelict cottage is set away from the farm buildings and is a two storey stone structure with a dilapidated slate roof. This building is not currently safe to enter.

The outbuildings appear to be in reasonable order and are a mixture of traditional stone buildings with some large portal frame additions.

The land extends to approximately 11.4 acres /4.6 ha and is grazing land lying mainly to the south and west of the farmhouse.
