Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6
Scaur Bank is an outstanding detached Victorian residence located on the outskirts of Longtown. This impressive property formerly part of the historic Netherby Estate is beautifully positioned having a pleasant southerly aspect and is set within well proportioned private grounds that enjoy stunning views of the river Esk. Although now in need of refurbishment it offers extensive, characterful accommodation retaining many fine period features that include a porticoed entrance, working shutters, period doors, sash windows and cornicing. Accessed via a private driveway with magnificent stone pillars the well-proportioned grounds include a walled kitchen garden and a range of substantial outbuildings arranged around a charming cobbled courtyard.

The spacious, versatile accommodation briefly comprises of four principal south facing reception rooms, six family bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shower room. This is a superb family home and the flexible layout is highly adaptable, therefore well suited for use in a variety of ways - for example: extended family living space with the potential to utilise part of the property as independent living accommodation or as an idyllic lifestyle property for combined home/business use. Former servants quarters offer scope to extend the existing living space if required. In addition, the outbuildings have consent for change of use to residential dwellings (Planning Application Ref. 04/0128). This presents an exciting opportunity to acquire an exceptional development site.

A period property of this calibre, in this location, is rarely introduced to the market and an early inspection is highly recommended.
