3 Bedroom Country House – Flat C, Broughton Place, Broughton, Peeblesshire, Scottish Borders, ML12 6HJ – Offers over £500,000
Broughton Place is splendidly situated close to the start of the famous John Buchan Way, a glorious walk which leads to Stobo and onwards to Peebles. Broughton Place sits within a much treasured and protected National Scenic Area. Panoramic views stretch across the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders. Whether it is the “soft, breathless June morning,” “the glinting frost of December”, “the abundance of spring flora and fauna”, or “the majestic colours of Autumn”, all of it is to be experienced here.
The village of Broughton is a thriving community with plenty to offer people of all ages. The well regarded local Primary School’s roll tends to be under 100 children, bringing its own appeal. There is a well-stocked community owned store, a local garage, tennis courts, a bowling green and a Bistro. Broughton is also home to Broughton Ales, Scotland’s original independent brewery. Situated only six miles from Biggar, all other amenities are close at hand.
Peebles is 13 miles to the east and offers further opportunities for shopping and recreation. There are outdoor pursuits right on the doorstep, whether walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and more. This flat provides an opportunity to enjoy country life within easy distance of Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Road links to Edinburgh and Glasgow are readily accessible, as is the A701 south to Moffat and the M74.
The flat is situated on the second floor, with access via a front turnpike stair. The apartment is immaculately presented with neutral décor, brilliant touches of elegant style and sophisticated taste throughout. A welcoming entrance hall leads immediately to the contemporary and spacious dining kitchen, with a striking multi-paned sash and case window overlooking the garden and the valley beyond. Large windows are a notable feature in every room, allowing an abundance of natural light to flood in, delivering delightful views in all directions. Original open fireplaces feature in every room with a unique Basil Spence designed tiled fireplace surround in the sitting room.
The T-shaped hallway is expansive, benefiting from traditional high ceilings and considerable width.
Several large cupboards provide generous storage. Two sizeable double bedrooms are ensuite. The third double bedroom is currently utilised as a study, highlighting flexibility regarding accommodation. The sitting room could be a fourth bedroom, as shown on the original plan. There is room for imagination here. The family shower room is modern and pristine, with floor to ceiling porcelain tiling.
The piece de resistance must be the circular drawing room at the far end of the apartment, which occupies the tower. Once again, at every turn of the head, a window and a glance of trees with views beyond. A fabulous room and overall, a distinguished apartment, designed with eclectic taste and much cherished by the current owners.
There is direct access to the garden from the apartment via the garden turnpike stairs in the south tower.
