There is the opportunity to purchase an additional 2 acres of hillside if the buyer wished.

The sitting room enjoys a spectacular view up Logan Burn and there is the opportunity to extend the house with the right planning permission.

With good outbuildings including a byre, kennels and a workshop, the property has huge potential, perhaps for buyers looking for a self-sufficient lifestyle or just a very private home.

The paddock garden is currently freely grazed by the Blackface sheep which are farmed on the surrounding hills.

Anna Gardiner for Savills says: “It is incredibly rare to have the chance to acquire a property in such a breathtaking beauty spot.
