5 Bed House - Townhouse
Offers Over £295,000
A deceptive and impressive B listed townhouse; having originally served as a farmhouse the property still benefits from the adjoining former byre (currently a double garage) and stable – both of which provide exciting prospects for various uses. Sizeable traditional accommodation over three floors in addition to an orchard style walled garden and ample private parking.
Occupying a prime position within Coldstream town centre, this deceptive townhouse dates from the 1700’s and boasts an interesting history having originally served as the local farmhouse - the adjoining former byre and stables are still in situ and offer some exciting prospects for a number of uses. With accommodation extending over three floors, this B Listed property offers much more than meets the eye; having served as a happy home for several generations of the same family, there is now a fantastic opportunity for those seeking a sizeable family home in the town, but equally there could easily be an opportunity for a B&B or such like with the layout lending itself to such.
The enclosed walled gardens to the rear are a real surprise and feature the former church as an impressive backdrop. The adjoining byre and stable currently provide storage and private off street parking but could offer opportunities for further development or conversion if desired – subject to permissions.

The main landing features a rear window with stained glass and gives access to the main bathroom and two principle bedrooms.

Bedroom two is a pleasant, light and airy double room whilst the neighbouring family bathroom has been very nicely refitted with a traditional style white suite complete with roll top bath and shower over. The timber wainscoting to dado height is a contemporary touch yet in keeping with the traditional aspects.
Two further bedrooms are located at this level, both spacious double rooms with dormer windows to the front allowing roof top views over Coldstream, towards the River Tweed and the Cheviots in the distance. One of the rooms also benefits from good built in storage whilst additional attic storage is provided by a cupboard and boiler room off the landing
