Set amongst picturesque woodlands and open countryside in the idyllic hamlet of Old Cardrona, this outstanding two-bedroom lower mews conversion promises a sought-after rural lifestyle and a prime location just south of the main village and a mere 10 minutes’ drive from Peebles. Forming part of a traditional, stone-built mews building constructed in the 1890s, this charming and characterful property further boasts two reception rooms, two bathrooms, extensive private parking, and a landscaped garden. In full decorative order, finished in Farrow and Ball paint, the countryside home is also presented in a move-in condition.

Reached via a private road that offers a glimpse of the area’s natural beauty, the home’s front door opens into an inviting entrance hall that flows through into the dining area, where attractive floor tiling and a sociable open-plan with the kitchen form a congenial space for entertaining. It is well-proportioned too, with plenty of room for a large table for lively dinner parties and casual family meals. Glazed doors lead into the living room, which has a bright and cosy ambience thanks to a neutral palette and soft carpeting. It has a generous footprint for comfortable lounge furniture, supplemented by a walk-in store cupboard, and a handsome fireplace (inset with a gas stove) as a focal point for arranging the room. In the well-equipped kitchen, rural appeal compliments the style of the accommodation, fitted with ample worktop space and generous cabinetry. Finishing the design is a range of integrated appliances (gas hob, eye-level oven, dishwasher, and fridge-freezer). A washing machine is discreetly housed in one of the two dining room cupboards. Allowing natural light to flow throughout the main accommodation, a bright sunroom rests behind glazed doors off the dining area, providing lovely garden views and a tranquil space to relax, as well as an overflow to outside for summer soirees. Meanwhile, two good-size double bedrooms sit side-by-side, presented with snug carpeting for maximum comfort. The master bedroom has the added appeal of an en-suite bathroom with an overhead shower. Finishing the home is a modern three-piece family shower room. Electric storage heaters and double glazing ensure year-round comfort.

Externally, there is a large landscaped garden, offering excellent privacy and a scenic rural atmosphere. Backed by mature trees and framed with raised planting beds, this outdoor haven includes a rockery for decoration, a patio for summer barbecues, and a new raised decking bay for alfresco dining in the sun. To the front, there is generous private parking for residents and visitors alike.

Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, a washing machine, and a garden shed to be included in the sale.

Old Cardrona, Scottish Borders

Old Cardrona is a peaceful and picturesque hamlet surrounded by the unspoilt natural beauty of the Scottish Borders in the stunning Tweed Valley. The tranquil area, enveloped by rolling hills and serene woodlands, is perfect for those seeking the rural idyll and for lovers of outdoor pursuits, such as hiking, horse riding, and salmon fishing. It offers a wealth of opportunities right on the doorstep too, with three designated forest walks and scenic cycle routes. The hamlet is also well connected, just a short walk from the main village of Cardrona and under four miles from both Peebles and Innerleithen, benefitting from quick and easy access to essential amenities, including supermarkets, a superstore, banks, and a post office. Macdonald Cardrona Hotel is only a three minutes’ drive away, offering a Championship Golf Course and Members Leisure Club. From here, there is a newly constructed cycle path connecting to Walkerburn and Peebles, creating a gorgeous 8 mile route. Only five minutes by car, there is the outstanding Traquair House and estate grounds to explore as well, with woodlands walks, a museum, a renowned brewery, and one of Scotland’s largest hedge mazes. Also close by is Peebles’ 18-hole golf course, a leisure centre, Glentress (one of Scotland’s premier biking centres), and, for an exhilarating family day out, Go Ape Peebles. Renowned as a cultural hub, picturesque Peebles also hosts high-end restaurants, bars, and cafés, annual arts and music festivals, and the Eastgate Theatre & Arts Centre, which has a programme of year-round events. Prestigious schooling options at primary and secondary level can be found in the neighbouring towns. Old Cardrona should be upgraded to fibre optic broadband in the next three months for faster internet speeds, which is always a handy feature in the countryside, particularly for those who work from home. The hamlet is also well-served by major road links leading to the City Bypass, Edinburgh International Airport, and the motorway network, with the heart of the capital reachable in approximately one hour.
