This luxury country home in a converted mill comes with a cottage next door for granny or grandpa

With home-working becoming a ‘new normal’ and access to nature moving high up the list of priorities, there is a major shift people are looking to move to the countryside.

With period charm alongside 21st-century luxury in two separate properties, Langbank Steading and Garden Cottage offer ideal accommodation for multi-generational living

With origins dating back to the 1700s, the property became a mill in the 19th century, then later a steading and latterly farm buildings.

The main house is set over two floors and benefits from four bedrooms

It was in a semi-ruinous state when the current owners took it over in 2006, but a two-year renovation programme and the addition of a two-storey corner tower has seen it transformed into two modern, energy-efficient homes – the four-bedroom Langbank Steading and two-bedroom Garden Cottage next door.

Sitting in more than an acre of ground, complete with a stream running through it and breathtaking views across the Borders countryside, the property has all the green space anyone could dream of.

Langbank Steading and Garden Cottage are on the market with Hastings at offers over over £925,000. The property is also listed through the ESPC.
