Take a look inside a spectacular Georgian manse near Melrose that started life as a two-roomed bothy

A spectacular family home has just been launched onto the sales market, complete with six bedrooms, landscaped gardens and a chic modern garden house.

Mertoun Glebe, St Boswells, began as a two-room bothy before being transformed into a magnificent Georgian manse for the nearby parish church in 1767 and has most recently undergone significant alterations by its current owners who have created a wonderful family home there.

The property has a drawing room, dining room, sitting room, wood store, rod room, wine cellar, sun lounge, studio, snug, kitchen/dining space and six double bedrooms.

The grounds are nearly an acre and a half, and include among the outbuildings a garden room, big enough for dining and sitting which would make a very special home office.

Tweedbank Station is a 15-minute drive north and has regular train services to the Capital, which take around an hour. The region is famed for its countryside making it ideal for outdoor sports and wildlife.
