Brimham House enjoys a historic and scenic rural location approximately 5 miles northwest of Kelso. The property enjoys tremendous views - including the Cheviots, Smailholm Tower and the Eildons.
Brimham House lies close to Mellerstain House, one of Britain's best stately homes, and for lovers of the outdoors there is good walking and cycling in the area.
Nearby Kelso is considered by many to be the most attractive of the Borders towns and is particularly noted for its fine market square and for the remains of one of the great Border Abbeys. The town provides a good shopping centre together with an excellent range of social and sporting facilities. An impressive new high school is currently being built on the northern edge of Kelso.
Girrick enjoys good road links with the main Borders towns and the Borders rail link with Edinburgh terminates at Tweedbank - an attractive 12 mile drive along the Tweed Valley from Girrick.
Brimham House is a superb detached family home which dates from 1998 and has been finished to a high standard by the current owners. The spacious, versatile, well appointed and thoughtfully designed accommodation is all at ground floor level and benefits from oil fired central heating with bio-mass option. This is all thermostatically controlled and profits from an RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) scheme.
There is an oil fired 4 oven "Aga" in the living//dining kitchen which is switched off in the summer - hence the oven/hob unit in the utility room. There is a log burning stove in the sitting room. All doors, skirtings, facings, kitchen and dresser were made and supplied by "Apostrophe" in Douglas Fir. The property has hardwood framed double glazed windows. Brimham house has excellent built in storage space including a floored loft, with access ladder, accessed from the utility room.
Brimham House has an excellent tarred driveway leading to an exceptional selection of outbuildings which includes a range of garages/workshops (10m x 15m) with WC, open wash area, covered shed, timber stables (14m x 4m) with hay shed, tack room, storage and 2 loose boxes, lawn tractor/garden tool shed and poly tunnel. The garages/workshops have been used for a business in the past and have had consent for this use which means that it should be possible to put them back to business use in the future if desired - subject to planning.
There is a useful cattle grid at the entrance gate and there is generous off road parking with Brimham House - including hard standing areas for horse boxes, trailers, etc. There are two fenced paddocks with another grassed area with fruit trees, which could be used as a further paddock or riding arena.
The garden includes lawns, borders, woodland, patios, many scented plants, vegetable plot and a fine natural pond.
In addition to being a fine family home Brimham House would be well suited to B&B use, if desired, and has been used for this in the past.
