Calming, elegant and effortlessly stylish, the Granary is a superb barn conversion with outstanding views in the very heart of the Scottish Borders. With four en-suite bedrooms and a generous light-filled living space, it is an idyllic spot for groups and families to spend some together-time.
Designed to take advantage of the fantastic views over rolling Borders countryside, the Granary spans two levels with three sumptuous bedrooms on the first floor, while a fantastic feature window in the hallway beautifully frames the view and extends all the way down to the lower ground floor which is home to the main living space and a further bedroom.
The open plan living area has been carefully styled to enhance the feeling of light and space and is a super space for relaxation or entertainment. The overall look is incredibly elegant with a mix of classic furnishings and contemporary features, and creates an easy flow between the dining, living and garden area. Large bi-folding doors can be opened up during warmer days for relaxed living or an evening barbeque, or during cooler days you can simply throw an extra log on the woodburner and sit back an enjoy the colours shift over the ever-changing landscape.
Set in the very heart of the country that inspired the writings of Sir Walter Scott, the location of the Granary on seven hundred acres of unspoilt estate land means that it is perfectly placed for walkers, cyclists, nature lovers and fieldsports. Fishing, either day rods or weekly lets, can be arranged directly with the estate office; stabling can be provided for guests interested in bringing their own horse; and guided tours of the area can be arranged - whether on two feet, two wheels or four hooves!
