4 Bed Equestrian
Offers Over £175,000
A unique and exciting opportunity to purchase a small holding in the heart of Berwickshire countryside. The land extends to around 8 acres of fenced, grass paddocks and is accompanied by a detached 3 bed bungalow which would now require renovation. This package is a rare opportunity for those seeking to operate a small holding or for the equestrian buyer with scope to create something that can be tailored to the purchasers individual requirements.
‘The Bungalow’ at Drakemyre is more than the name would suggest; nestled into the heart of Berwickshire countryside this detached bungalow comes complete with approximately 8 acres of adjoining grass paddocks presenting the perfect opportunity for those seeking a small holding.
The bungalow itself is believed to be of non-standard construction and whilst it benefits from pleasant proportions, it does now require renovation but offers plenty of scope and endless possibilities.
The adjoining land extends to the north, west and south side of the bungalow and currently comprises areas of fenced grass paddocks with an area of woodland surrounding the bungalow.
The overall package would be an ideal opportunity for those seeking a small holding with ample space for livestock including potential for the equestrian buyer. The space on offer creates possibilities for further livestock buildings, stabling, schooling arenas etc (subject to permissions)
The property and the land have been vacant for some time and any purchaser would require a creative eye in order to visualise the possibilities but the overall package presents a very unique and exciting opportunity to create something from scratch that can be tailored to the purchasers requirements and desires.
Whilst any purchaser would have to make their own enquiries with the planning authorities, it is thought that the current bungalow could be removed from site entirely with scope for a larger, more individual build somewhere else within the boundary of the small holding.
Drakemyre is located between Duns and Grantshouse, approximately two miles from the A1 trunk road. The property and adjoining paddocks are nestled into the heartland of Berwickshire countryside with farmland extending in all directions. Due to the proximity to the A1, whilst being rural, the property remains well connected to Edinburgh. The East Coast rail line with stations at nearby Berwick and Dunbar also provide excellent rail links to the south. Local amenities, schooling (primary and secondary) and recreational activities are available within Duns which is approximately 9 miles distant.
From Duns travel on the A6112 signposted Gransthouse. Continue on this road for approximately eight miles before turning right onto the B6438 sign posted ‘Drakemyre’. Continue on this road for approximately 1 mile, passing the cattery on the right hand side. ‘The Bungalow’ is the next house on the right and is set back from the road into a small wooded area.
