Newhouse Cottage is an excellent equestrian property in the heart of the Borders hunting country. The detached two bedroom property which is in need of renovation and modernisation, offers tremendous potential with the benefit of a modern stable block and land amounting to approximately 6.3 acres. The property enjoys a stunning, rural yet very accessible location, situated near the A68 trunk road through the Scottish Borders. The surrounding area provides beautiful countryside walks and rides. Kelso has a first class race course and there are numerous golf courses in the Borders.
This is an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a small equestrian property with development potential. The cottage currently provides an entrance porch, hall, large sitting room with multi-fuel stove which provides central heating, kitchen and conservatory off the sitting room, together with two bedrooms and bathroom. The cottage has exposed beams and offers enormous potential to create a fabulous country cottage with vaulted ceilings, occupying a delightful location with stunning rural views, all set within 6.3 acres of land.
The property is accessed through double timber gates to a spacious gravelled parking area. To the rear of the cottage there is a private sun terrace and lawned garden with a range of fruit trees, including apple and pear, and several blackberry bushes. To the front there is further garden area with lawn and large pond/lake with a natural water source. A detached single garage is located to the side of the cottage.
A double timber gate leads from the parking area into the field and an access track leads to the American Barn style equestrian unit, which benefits from water and electric supply. There are eight 12’ x 12’ stables, together with a feed room and tack room arranged on either side of a central passage with sliding doors at either end.
The land, which surrounds the property, amounts to a total of 6.3 acres.
