This Elegant and very spacious Georgian house (4500sq ft.) is being sold through 'The Online estate agency' and also can be found in full detail with pictures, on the links below for Rightmove and Prime location. Why live in a crowded City and a small apartment, when you are within commuting distance of Edinburgh and Newcastle, even London in 3.5 hours, and could have a large house with all the space you will ever need - for probably a fraction of the cost?

Independent surveyor's Valuation -£650k - therefore already much reduced- Final reductions for swift sale due to ill health.   - East Wing development potential - Also OPP for Additional Detached House in grounds (lapsed but still pending) The house and east wing could also easily be converted to elegant apartments with planning, and the plot of land developed to make a profitable investment,

This is a truly loved house where we have been very happy for nearly 14 years, and could be a young family's wonderful forever home with all the space you would ever need, inside and out, or a perfect elegant retreat or entertainment house for a couple, who love their privacy but want a spacious home to entertain in.

We have been offered several lovely opportunities to swap with other homes and to swap for businesses both here and abroad, however my partner has had two major operations in the past 5 years and therefore we have reduced the price substantially so we can downsize and concentrate on having time together.

Therefore all we would like is a simple straightforward sale, for which we have reduced the price by over £150,000, even though prices in Scotland are now increasing between 6-10% and are set to rise further whatever the outcome of September 18th.

We think this house could be a real bargain for someone, and is offered chain free sale as we have hopefully found somewhere to move to.

The House sits in an acre of fully fenced grounds and gardens, with electric gates to the front of the drive, and is Grade 'B' listed. It is a classical Georgian country house within a village setting, although very private and hidden away in its own secluded grounds. It is south facing and looks out towards the Cheviot hills.


It is a perfect family house with good primary and secondary/private schools nearby, and is situated approx. 8 miles from the  Coast with sandy beaches, and A1 with main line train station with easy links to London, Edinburgh and Newcastle.


It has a valuation of £650k but is on the market for Offers around £500k - but we are happy to be flexible on price for a genuine buyer with a sensible offer

as we want a quick trouble free sale as we are relocating so speed is important.


Thank you very much for looking and for all the interest and questions, and all serious offers will be considered

Many thanks.
