The Barley House occupies an elevated position, within a rural location, circa 7 miles from the popular town of Duns which lies in the heart the Berwickshire countryside.

Duns offers an excellent range of amenities including local shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, professional services and well-regarded schooling. Duns is a friendly town with a thriving and strong community spirit, together with a low population that can therefore offer a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare. The area is one of the genuinely rural parts of Great Britain despite its close proximity to both Edinburgh and Newcastle.

The immediate area provides a good variety of recreational activities from events and gardens, to excellent opportunities for the country sports enthusiast. There is salmon fishing on the River Tweed, trout fishing in various local lochs and pheasant and grouse shooting on local estates. There are a number of good golf courses in easy reach, including Duns Golf Club which is only a mile away, Goswick Golf Club and the championship Roxburgh course near Kelso.

Berwick-upon-Tweed which is within a short drive is a vibrant town with a good range of national services and retailers and has a number of hotels, restaurants, pubs and wine bars. There is the popular Maltings Theatre and Cinema as well as a regular market and a number of galleries and arts and crafts shops. Berwick also offers private schooling from ages 3 to 18 at Longridge Towers School (

Duns also has good transport links with the A1 trunk road only 18 miles away and the mainline railway station at Berwick-upon-Tweed providing a fast link to London Kings Cross (3h 39mins), Edinburgh (43 mins), Newcastle (45 mins) and Leeds (2h 19 mins). Edinburgh and Newcastle airports have regular flights to London and a variety of domestic and foreign destinations.


The Barley House is an attractive property, converted circa 10 years ago and extending to circa 227 sq m. The property provides large and practical family living accommodation over two floors and skilfully combines traditional and modern styling throughout. The property is beautifully presented internally and benefits from particularly lovely views over surrounding countryside.

The property occupies a truly rural location, accessed from Sisterpath via a farm track. There is ample parking to the front of the house and a door opens into the entrance hall, where there is a practical utility room and cloakroom and access through into the welcoming kitchen, which is very much the heart of the home. The kitchen offers a comfortable space for informal dining and has a good range of wall and base units positioned around the electric range cooker. From here, there is access into a central hallway, which offers access to the rear garden and the two principal reception rooms. Both rooms are located to the rear of the property, are generous in their proportions and benefit from ample natural light and rural views.

From the central hallway on the ground floor, a staircase ascends to the first floor landing where the bedroom accommodation can be found. There are three double bedrooms, one with built in wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom and a well fitted family bathroom.


The Barley House is a wonderful home in a particularly stunning location. The accommodation within is versatile and flexible, depending on needs, and offers a purchaser a lifestyle that is becoming increasingly sort after. 


The Barley House benefits from a private gravelled area to the front of the property, which provides ample vehicular hard standing. 


There is an enclosed courtyard garden to the front of the house, which can be accessed directly from the living room and to the rear there is a generous garden, predominantly laid to lawn and backing onto open farmland.
