A wonderfully individual gothic style property offering many unique features and occupying a super location on the edge of Coldstream with sizeable gardens and outlooks over the river Leet
Believed to date back some 200 years, 1-2 Dovecote is truly a distinct B Listed property with its baronial appearance and fabulous gothic design features. Originally two cottages which were subsequently combined to provide what is now a particularly spacious home, the property boasts an equally fabulous position; located towards the edge of Coldstream and within only a short walk of the town centre yet enjoying great peace and tranquillity not to mention the lovely outlooks from the front over the River Leet. The layout is both flexible and adaptable and whilst perfectly suited as a family home the configuration would also easily lend itself to use as a B&B or perhaps for extended family/visiting friends. Of particular note is the master bedroom suite which occupies the entire top floor of ‘The Dovecote’ – medieval in its style it boasts remarkably high ceilings, ornate cornicing, a window in the shape of a four leaf clover not to mention the arched door into the adjoining en-suite bathroom.
Unusually for a property so close to the town centre there are also sizeable gardens both to the front and rear; the elevated front lawn commands a view over the River Leet which runs below. Usefully there is also a detached double garage and off street parking.
Coldstream itself is well known as the gateway to Scotland and has witnessed many historically significant events. The town is set on the banks of the River Tweed and there are many pleasant riverside walks and in the nearby Hirsel country estate. Local sports include an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, and riding with Tweed fishing, hill walking, curling and National Hunt racing available nearby. Coldstream offers a variety of shops and is centrally placed for access to Kelso, Duns and Berwick. From Berwick upon Tweed, trains take less than one hour to reach either Edinburgh or Newcastle.
Situated in a beautiful location overlooking the River Leet at the foot of Duke Street and Leet Street, within a short walk of the town centre.

Upper Floor – Master En-Suite Bedroom
The charm and character of the property is evident from the outset with the gothic style studded front entrance door which opens into a welcoming hall with open staircase to the upper floor within the tower. Peacefully located to the far end of the entrance hall is the ground floor en-suite bedroom. This is a sizeable double room with outlooks over the front gardens and a well-appointed en-suite shower room – due to its location within the property this room would be ideal as a guest suite or B&B letting bedroom. Central to the property is the lounge which features a dual aspect with windows to the front in addition to French doors connecting to the rear garden, A pleasant focal point is provided by the feature fireplace currently housing an electric stove. A door from the lounge opens to the kitchen at the rear, again with external door to the garden. Fitted with a modern range of shaker style units with a good amount of worktop space and storage. Boasting particularly good proportions, the dining room is a great space for entertaining; with outlooks over the front and rear gardens this room also features a large log burning stove set into a stone fireplace. A door from this room opens into the peaceful home office which is an ideal work environment, privately tucked away to the rear of the property. The utility room is a useful facility and finally to the far end of the property is the second ground floor double bedroom which conveniently lies next door to the recently installed wet room.
The entire upper floor hosts the truly impressive medieval master bedroom suite. The high ceilings create a great sense of space whilst the window shaped as a four leaf clover commands a super outlook over the Leet. The arched shaped door at the rear opens into the very well appointed en-suite bathroom complete with a Jacuzzi corner bath.
The sheltered gardens at the rear are largely laid to lawn with hedged surround ensuring plenty of privacy and some productive fruit trees. A secluded patio to one end provides a lovely private seating area with summer sun well into the evening. Further large areas of lawn extend to the front with colourful planted beds and established borders. The elevated position commands an outlook over the River Leet which runs beyond.
Accessed via Duke Street to the side of the property there is a detached double garage and private drive providing valuable off street parking.
