Property Details

West Linton EH46 7DE


A four-bedroom family home, forming part of a traditional farm steading courtyard conversion in a rural setting, with parking and extensive shared gardens.

House - West Linton

Southstead is a good sized, semi-detached, four-bedroom, family house of two storey height. It was converted (along with the three other courtyard houses) in the late 1990s, utilising the original solid stone walls of the former farm steading buildings, with upper timber frame and timber clad sections, all under a pitched slate roof.  There is a single storey section to the north housing the attached single garage.

Outside there is a small, dedicated garden and patio area to the west with adjoining car parking. To the north-east is the shared courtyard garden (maintained by the estate, subject to a tenant’s annual contribution), with access to the former walled garden, comprising a large, shared grass area. There is open countryside aspect beyond.


Southstead is located at Bordlands, which lies approximately one mile south of the village of Romannobridge and four miles south of the town of West Linton.

Romannobridge retains a primary school and community centre. West Linton offers a small range of shops and services (including primary school), with a wider range of services and secondary schooling available in nearby Peebles (approximately 10 miles to the south-east) or Penicuik (approximately 10 miles to the north-east). Edinburgh is approximately 22 miles to the north and is easily accessed via the A701.

Turn right onto the A701 and continue through Romannobridge. Turn left off the A701, approximately a quarter of a mile beyond Romannobridge (sign posted “Bordlands”). Continue downhill on the private tarmac farm road for approximately 300 yards and then turn left off the farm road into the “grouping” of houses/cottages. Southstead is towards the far end, on the left, opposite Shepherds Cottage.
