King of the Mill
HASTINGS is currently marketing a white-painted Georgian farmhouse in the Cheviot village of Kirk Yetholm, a few miles east of Kelso and less than a mile from the Border. The village is a pretty place with a 13th century church and a hotel that marks the end of the Pennine Way. More famously, for centuries Kirk Yetholm was one of the preferred homes of the Roma people in Scotland and their last king was crowned on the village green in 1898. Yetholm Mill Farmhouse is a C-listed building, bordered by woodland and set in a beautiful private garden that includes a pebbled courtyard, sheltered paved seating area and terrace, with a further wooded area along the lade that served the former mill buildings. Currently operating as a successful farmhouse bed and breakfast business with an additional self-catering annex, the property as a whole has six bedrooms, three public rooms, five bathrooms and two kitchens, making it an attractive proposition as a home and income generator or a home plus granny flat. In addition (available by separate negotiation) there is an adjacent listed steading with permission to convert to a house. Beautifully presented inside and out, Yetholm Mill Farmhouse is for sale with Hastings & Co at offers around £445,000.
ON THE MONEY: Yetholm Mill Farmhouse could provide a new life with an income.
