Riverside: an equestrian lover’s dream
Positioned in an enviable secluded spot just outside Lauder, this five bedroom house boasts 11 acres of land in the beautiful Borders countryside. Perfect for equestrian lovers, Riverside provides livery facilities with two stable blocks, a hay shed, paddock and six earth stables. And the property can work alongside the equestrian facilities or as two separate entities, individual road access to each.
Also ideal for those who love walking, the beautiful land surrounding the property extends into open country, with fields to roam and endless hills to explore. This also ensures the property boasts incredible views over the surrounding countryside and nearby river.
The 11 acres of land boasts endless possibilities, whether the new owner wished to extend the equestrian facilities or to pursue other developments, subject to the necessary planning permission. In addition, the Riverside property includes fishing rights, photovoltaic solar panels and is perfectly located within the commuter belt, south-east of the A68 north to Edinburgh.
Internally, the property features over 3,000 square feet of beautiful, contemporary accommodation, all arranged over one level. Filled with natural light, thanks to its south-facing plot and expertly placed dual windows, the home appears lovely and bright. The elegantly designed property would be perfect for families and has been finished to an exceptionally high specification, ensuring it feels luxurious throughout.
The dining kitchen is particularly impressive – exuding chic, modern style, it features parquet flooring, a vaulted ceiling and a large central island. The sleek white units are excellently contrasted with dark worktops and stainless steel units, while large windows and French doors leading to the garden flood the space with sunlight.
The home is also perfect for those who enjoy entertaining, with a spacious living room, supplemented by a more casual living room, as well as a formal dining room. And during the summer months, there’s always the outdoor patio for al fresco drinks and dining – you can wow your guests with those wonderful views.
