Eccles is a popular Borders village on the B6461 which links Kelso with Berwick Upon Tweed. The village sits amidst the rolling farmlands of the Merse. Village amenities include a church and a village hall with a wider range of amenities being found nearby Kelso - one of the most sought after towns in the Scottish Borders. Amenities in Kelso include an excellent range of shops, social and sporting facilities.
Nearby Coldstream and Duns also provide a useful range of amenities and Eccles has good road links with both Edinburgh and Berwick Upon Tweed/the East Coast Railway Line.
The surrounding countryside is noted for its scenic beauty. In addition to being rich and wildlife it also contains a wealth of historic sites and stately homes—many of which are open to the public at various times of the year.
Eccles Mains Farmhouse is an attractive, traditional, detached family home with excellent central location in Eccles. The spacious, versatile and well presented family sized accommodation benefits from oil fired central heating and most windows are double glazed.
The Farmhouse was refurbished by the current owner in the 1980’s and the neighbouring steading, which currently has planning permission for conversion to a single dwelling, adds significantly to the property’s desirability.
Entrance Porch, hall, sitting room, dining room, family room, breakfasting kitchen, utility room and WC (with WC and basin).
Landing, 4 bedrooms, study/bedroom 5, bathroom (with bath, shower, basin, wc and bidet) and linen room.
The Farmhouse has an impressive landscaped garden which lies mainly to its northeast. The garden includes lawn, ponds, borders and patio and enjoys some excellent privacy.
The vegetable garden has vehicular access from the public road and would be an ideal place for a garage or a shed - if desired. There is also off road parking on the south west side of the house.
The handsome, traditional farm steading lies to the west of the Farmhouse and would convert to an attractive single dwelling with courtyard and garden. Planning consent for this conversion was obtained in February 2017. (Ref: 16/01059/FUL).
The section of the steading closest to the public road may have potential for conversion to a second dwelling, if desired, subject to planning. Indeed, it has had planning consent for conversion in the past (Ref: 08/01792/FUL).
The steading has been used as a joiners workshop in the past and prior to 1980 was a dairy.
From Kelso take the B6461 north. Pass through the village of Ednam and continue to Eccles. Eccles Mains lies on the left shortly after the right hand turn to Birgham.
Strictly by appointment with the selling agents.
Whilst the vendor would prefer to sell the farmhouse and steading together either may be available on its own if desired - subject to discussion.
