About the property
‘The Coach House’ is a unique and individual stone built property; dating from around 1900 this quirky, former coach house offers a rare opportunity to purchase a detached traditional home in a town centre location with all amenities within only a short walk. The convenience of the location is coupled with a charming private walled garden which benefits from sun throughout most of the day, off street parking and a garage. Internally the layout is flexible and adaptable with accommodation extending over two floors. Currently, the main accommodation is positioned at first floor level with nicely proportioned rooms and large windows which ensure plenty of natural light. The hidden gem comes at the lower ground level with a charming garden room/living room/kitchen with patio doors which lead directly out to the walled gardens. The lower ground level has been completely refurbished in recent years and offers scope either as a self-contained apartment with a private access from the gardens or, with a small degree of reconfiguration, the lower ground floor could provide impressive living accommodation with the upper floor used to house the bedroom accommodation.
Duns has good educational and recreational facilities including primary and secondary schools, swimming pool, tennis courts, 18 hole golf course, library, various speciality shops and walks and nature reserve within the grounds of Duns Castle and is home to the classical Edwardian Mansion at Manderston. Edinburgh is 45 miles away with the main East Coast rail line at Berwick upon Tweed some 15 miles distant.
