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.
