Leafywood is a beautiful and impressive modern property with spacious and well-appointed accommodation throughout. The house, along with the equestrian facilities, was built in 2007 by the present owners and is ideally positioned to take advantage of the fabulous rural views.
The main entrance is to the rear of the house which opens to a spacious and naturally well-lit entrance hallway, presented with a central bifurcated staircase creating a focal point of the property. From here, access is provided to all the ground floor accommodation. The principal rooms all sit to the front elevation to make the most of the open views. The dining room is central, and can be accessed from both the hallway and the adjacent kitchen. This wonderful room benefits from fully height glazing and French doors to the front, and is currently used as a music room. Adjoining the dining room is another reception room currently used as a sitting room. This has dual aspects, to the front and side of the property and therefore has wonderful rural views.
The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room has a range of wall and floor mounted cupboards and ample space for a dining suite. It is complemented by a large utility room which is plumbed for washing and drying as well as having a range of storage cupboards under a rear facing window. Also accessed from the main hallway is an office to the rear of the property along with a ground floor cloakroom and WC.
Off the first floor galleried landing there is access to all the sleeping accommodation including four almost identical and symmetrical double bedrooms, all of which benefit from having two aspects to ensure they are well lit. Each of these bedrooms has its own en-suite bathroom, all with showers over the bath. The master bedroom has a triangular apex window to the front incorporating a Juliet balcony to take full advantage of the beautiful view.
A private driveway winds up along the front of the house before then turning to go past the rear and up towards an all-weather manège where there is ample parking beside a large block and portal frame outbuilding. The general purpose building is 18.3 metres by 12.2 metres, with a concrete slab floor, hand basin, WC, power and lighting. There is both an external tap and internal water supply. It currently accommodates six IAE hardwood and galvanised steel stables and has adequate space to garage cars, ride on lawnmowers, horseboxes and more. Additionally, there is a car lift for the servicing and repair of vehicles. In all the land extends to approximately 7.91 acres which includes flat and hillside paddock and grazing land.
The property benefits from a Feed-In Tariff (FIT), currently 55p per kW, derived from Solar Panels on the roof of the outbuilding. The FIT expires in 2037 and the benefit will run with the property and be included within the purchase.
Leafywood is located close to the popular market town of Jedburgh where there is a good range of amenities including a wide range of shops including an award-winning butcher, professional services, good primary and secondary schools, a health centre, supermarket, a number of restaurants and cafés, and a wide range of leisure amenities. Jedburgh is home to one of the most famous and oldest Rugby Clubs in Scotland, Jed-Forest; other sports activities include football, swimming, badminton, tennis, athletics and skiing on the only dry ski slope in the Borders. Jedburgh is one of the most historic towns in the Scottish Borders, with many fine buildings including the beautiful 12th century Augustinian Abbey, Mary Queen of Scots fortified house, and the Victorian County Jail. The new intergenerational campus at Hartrigge Park will replace Jedburgh Grammar, Howdenburn and Parkside primary schools by 2020.
The main A68 runs nearby which makes many of the surrounding Borders towns and villages within easy commuting distance. Good communication links to the north and south via the A68, A7 and A696 trunk roads provide access to Edinburgh, Carlisle and Newcastle. The nearest mainline railway station is at Berwick-upon-Tweed which provides mainline services north and south to major UK cities.
