JEDBURGH
‘INCHBONNY’ NEWCASTLE ROAD

 EARLY GEORGIAN VILLA

This beautiful property offers an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a substantial country home of character and distinction, in a highly convenient location, just minutes drive from the sought after Abbey town of Jedburgh, surrounded by the typically scenic countryside for which the Scottish Borders is renowned. The house sits in an extensive and stunning mature garden which enjoys the charm of the Howden Burn meandering through, linking to the Jed Water, and includes a selection of outbuildings, formerly stables, ideal for home business premises or even perhaps conversion into guest accommodation, as well as a paddock. Uniquely, the house has been in the same family since it was built in the early 1700’s and whilst over time the property has been sympathetically added to, it retains numerous fine period details along with interesting curiosities such as a peep hole in the dining room, used by James Veitch as an alignment for the telescopes for which he was renowned. Additionally, located in the paddock is ‘Hutton’s Unconformity’ a historic site of world fame, considered to be one of the most important geological sites in the world, a draw for tourists and historians alike.

LOCATION
With the Jed Water running through it, Jedburgh is a particularly scenic town that simply abounds with historic buildings attracting many visitors and, being straddled by the A68, is well placed for travel North or South as well as to many of the major towns and villages in the Borders region. The type of spectacular countryside for which this beautiful area as a whole is renowned surrounds Jedburgh, and there are numerous activities on hand for those with an interest in sporting and/or country pursuits. The town itself provides a good variety of shopping and leisure facilities, and also offers both primary and secondary schooling. 

Travelling south bound on the A68, Inchbonny sits on the right hand side of the road on the bend as you leave the town. The drive is situated before you reach the signpost for the house.
