Hidden away in the Scottish borders is another world, or at least, a different part of the world. Specifically, the RachanHus three-bedroom Scandinavian-style property in Broughton, Peeblesshire, Scotland.
Set in 1.87 acres of land and in a wooded location in the Upper Tweed Valley, the house is relative new build, having been constructed around six years back. But the look itself is timeless – this could well have been built on the 1970s, if we didn’t know better.
The house is set out over two floors, with wood the key theme here. If you don’t like wood, look away now. On the ground floor, you’ll find an entrance porch, hallway, principal bedroom, bathroom and two further bedrooms, utility/boot room and a double integral garage.
Up to the first floor and there’s a sitting room, dining area, kitchen/breakfast room, wet room/sauna/utility (as you would expect), a WC, an additional gallery area and a separate home office. That all? Not quite – head outside and you’ll find the ‘Quota Hut’, complete with a central barbecue and chimney, with seating and windows on all sides. There’s also a lean-to log store, a bicycle shed and a garden store shed, as well as a driveway with fixed lighting.
Perhaps that description doesn’t do it justice. Head to the agent’s site and download the PDF document, which has more images and an endless amount of detail about each room.
The price? £460,000 is the asking price.
Big thanks to on Twitter for flagging this one up.
