Fantasy meets reality in this incredible Threshing Mill conversion dating back circa 200 years set in approximately 1 acre of spectacular surroundings.

Enchanting and inviting, Garden House has been sympathetically restored and converted to form a unique luxury home that retains the character and charm of the original stone building bringing a sense of history and authenticity. Garden House is the perfect combination of country chic and hi-tec wizardry with all the modern comforts of home and a dose of luxury.

What’s outside Garden House?

The Grange Burn that casually makes its way past the property at the bottom of the garden is a feature in itself and quite rightly too.  The stream attracts an abundance of wildlife to look out for and the trees and area of woodland beyond the stream means you may even get a glimpse of a red squirrel or a white barn owl, if you’re lucky.

The elevated south-facing walled garden area with a lawn and patio, to the side of the property is a perfect invitation for barbeques and alfresco dining in the summer. With the sound of the stream flowing and the countryside and wooded views, it’ll feel as though you’re on holiday. It also makes a wonderful spot for sitting back on a sun lounger and soaking up the summer rays.

The garden, stream and woodland surrounding the property are truly spectacular, all within an extremely idyllic setting.

Garage:

Integral single garage that can be accessed via the ground floor hallway.  With side opening electrically operated doors in attractive seasoned cedar timber, power and lighting.

What Propology love about Garden House and the location:

We absolutely love the setting of this luxurious home with the pretty stream meandering its way calmly through the garden.  The walled garden makes a fabulous spot for summer parties.  We love the way that this property has been finished to an exceptionally high standard with high specification appliances and fixtures too.  The property flows with wonderful ease and there are great spaces to gather friends and family.  This truly is a lovely family home and the location only adds to the appeal.
