A "STRIKING" Borders home is now on the market and would be an ideal home for buyers looking for a little luxury.

Knowetownhead Steading, at Hassendeanbur near Denholm, is an architect-built home which has been restored by its current owners.

The original steading, which was built in the 18th century, has undergone a number of changes since its construction and features two pieces of carved stonework in the exterior wall – one an Agnus Dei, and the other with the date 1628 carved on it – both are believed to have come from the nearby Hassendean Church which was demolished in the 1690s.

Knwetownhead Steading has five spacious bedrooms, one on the ground floor, and the remaining four – including the large master bedroom – on the first floor.

All the bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom, with the ground floor bedroom having a 'Jack and Jill' style bathroom (accessible through the bedroom and the hallway), and the master bedroom also features a free-standing roll top bath, walk in wardrobe and apex window looking out on the surrounding countryside.

The property is listed with Hastings Legal for offers over £825,000.

A Hastings spokesperson said: "Completed to an exacting standard in 2017, Knowetownhead Steading is a striking and beautifully styled detached home set against an outstanding backdrop of rolling hill countryside – with immaculate and fully enclosed wrap around gardens and an established woodland setting.

"This restorative position, in the sought after countryside hamlet of Hassendeanburn, hosts a perfect blend of period and contemporary style; which enjoys a focus on natural light with the feature frontage incorporating apex windows.

"Internally, the bright and open outlook is complemented with an elegant finish with fresh neutral décor, crisp lines and a well-considered layout allowing for flexible and versatile use."

Outside, the steading has around 0.75 acres of enclosed gardens, a raised seating area, a small patio, a generous driveway, and a three-car garage, store and workshop.

The spokesperson added: "Unquestionably a remarkable family home and enviable find for any buyer in search of a balance between country living and access to amenities."
