LOT 1 - An historic “B” Listed cottage, with scope for conversion of outbuildings, set within a small hamlet in the heart of the Upper Tweeddale National Scenic Area

House -


Smithy Cottage is an historic, Category B Listed, mixed single and one and a half storey, semi-detached cottage, with the current accommodation incorporating the original village smithy and adjoining Post Office. To the rear is an adjoining garage with former Joiner’s Cottage beyond. This could be converted to further accommodation or an annex, subject to the necessary consents. The building is “L” shaped and is constructed of mainly stone walls under a slate roof, with a small rear flat roofed extension. Windows are mainly traditional, single glazed, timber frame type with pvc double glazed windows in places.

Outside, the cottage fronts onto the public road. To the north-east side, there is a good-sized hardstanding and car parking area, part enclosed by a stone wall running along the adjoining side road, which leads to Drumelzier Kirk. The side parking area provides access to the rear, which includes a large, mature garden, with a west facing paved patio, lawns and colourful flower beds, with shelter from trees and shrubs. The garden gently slopes up to the north to a larger lawn area (Lot 2).


Smithy Cottage is located in a semi-rural position within the Upper Tweed Valley hamlet of Drumelzier. Nearest village services are within the conservation village of Broughton, approximately three miles to the north, which retains a community run village shop and primary school. Larger town services are available in Biggar, approximately eight and a half miles to the north-west, with secondary schooling and a larger range of services provided in Peebles, approximately ten miles to the north-east. Edinburgh is approximately thirty-three miles to the north and is easily accessed via the A701, which lies approximately one and a half miles to the west of the property. The A701 also provides access south to Moffat (approximately twenty-four miles) and Junction 15 on the A74 (M).


From Edinburgh, take the A701 south to the village of Broughton. Continue through the village and beyond the “30” limit for approximately one mile and turn left at Rachan Mill onto the B712 (signposted “Peebles B712”). Continue on the B712 for approximately one and a half miles into the hamlet of Drumelzier. Smithy Cottage is on the left, just after the public phone box and before the village hall.

Post Code: ML12 6JD. It is strongly recommended that you do not rely on Satnav in this rural location and check on a route map prior to any scheduled viewing.
