Carterhouse is situated in a private setting on the southern side of the A6088, approximately 9 miles south of the popular Borders town of Jedburgh, and is surrounded by spectacular countryside.
Despite its rural location, Carterhouse is easily accessed from the A6088, approximately 1.5 miles north of the junction with the A68 at Carter Bar and the border with Northumberland.
Carterhouse extends to approximately 15.75 hectares (38.92 acres) in total. The holding is in good order, with the benefit of stockproof fencing and natural stone walls, spring water feeds troughs to most fields, modern farm buildings and traditional farmhouse.
Enjoying a private location within the holding, the farmhouse is a one and a half storey traditional two bedroom property, with a rendered finish and slate roof. Carterhouse has been improved by the current owners to a high standard, and benefits from double-glazing throughout, LPG central heating, mains electricity, septic tank drainage, bore hole and spring water supply, and a solid fuel Raeburn.
The spacious accommodation is thoughtfully laid out and in move-in condition, comprising two double bedrooms, two reception rooms, galley kitchen and pantry, family bathroom, study, attic room with potential for development and large double garage.
The house is surrounded by extensive gardens including a vegetable patch, lawn, and poultry run. There is the opportunity here to create a wonderful farmhouse garden to take advantage of the stunning scenery.
The land is made up of 15.29 hectares (37.78 acres) of rough grazing, and is classified as 5(3) on the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute Land Capability Map for agriculture in Scotland.
Carterhouse falls out with the Nitrate Vulnerable Zone for Edinburgh, East Lothian and the Borders.
The land presents a good opportunity to implement a plan to improve the grazing and increase the productive capacity.
The tidy and well maintained steading benefits from a range of modern farm buildings, including (approximate dimensions):
A. 2002 steel portal frame sheep and hay shed 18m x 12m
B. 2011 garage / workshop 6m x 8m
C. 1990s wooden utility shed 12m x 12m
D. Range of goat sheds, lambing pens and various poultry houses
The buildings are well located close to the farmhouse, and easily accessed from the farm steading.
The Met Office has a small station at Carterhouse, which sends automatic readings via the telephone line. This currently generates a small annual income, which is index linked.
