Wolfelee House originated as the coach house for Wolflee Mansion House, formerly in the ownership of the Eliot family, and which was destroyed by fire in the 1970s. The coach house was then converted to provide fantastic family accommodation with the potential to extend into the lower ground floor.
Accommodation includes the principal reception room, the drawing room, which has French doors out to the garden and a magnificent open fireplace. Double doors lead from the well-fitted kitchen out to the terrace and the dining room is an impressive space with a wood-burning stove. From the hall a staircase leads to the library/sitting room. The house has three double bedrooms and two single bedrooms, and a family bathroom.
The lower ground floor provides a superb range of storage and two further panelled vaulted rooms, previously used as office space.

The house also comes with a cottage – Stables Cottage – built out of the same red sandstone as the house. The accommodation is arranged on the ground floor and as a sitting room, bathroom and two bedrooms.
Outside the grounds are wonderfully mature and contain some good specimen trees including lime, Monkey Puzzle and beech. The formal gardens have shrub borders surrounding the paved terrace and extensive lawns extend out from the cottage and overlook the former walled gardens. The grounds extend to the west down to The Rule Water where the owner of the house has trout fishing rights.
Wolflee House is situated in the pretty rolling countryside of the Scottish Borders just nine miles from the market town of Hawick and 60 miles from Edinburgh. There is a primary school at Bonchester Bridge, a village just over a mile south of the property, and there are lots of sporting opportunities in the local area including hunting, shooting and of course local fishing is very good.
The guide price is £595,000. For more information contact Savills on 0131 247 3717 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
