Unique B Listed Townhouse Extending Over Four Floors. An Extremely Versatile Internal Layout And Peaceful Walled Courtyard and Roof Top Views Of The River Tweed.
Interestingly this B listed townhouse was originally built for the Earl Of Haddington back in the early 1800’s, and as such the property boasts an interesting history with plenty of charm and character throughout. With accommodation extending over four floors including a converted basement and conservatory extension to the rear, the layout and arrangement of the interior is such that it could lend itself to many different uses – utilised by the current vendor as a two bedroom property, clearly the accommodation could be used differently to provide up to four bedrooms if required.
Positioned in the heart of Coldstream with the convenience of all amenities, literally on the door step, yet with a lovely secluded walled courtyard to the rear which is a real sun trap, not to mention the southerly views from the top floor taking in the River Tweed in the foreground and The Cheviots in the distance.
Coldstream itself is well known as the gateway to Scotland and is set on the banks of the River Tweed with beautiful walks along the riverside and in the nearby Hirsel Country Estate. Local sports include an 18-hole golf course at the Hirsel, tennis courts, horse riding and fishing on the Tweed. It also provides easy access to large variety of walks within the Northumberland National Park and lovely unspoilt beaches on the Berwickshire coast. Coldstream town offers a good primary school and easy access to secondary schools, a variety of shops and is well placed for easy commuting to both Edinburgh and Newcastle via the mainline station at Berwick upon Tweed only 20 minutes away.

The accommodation at ground floor level boasts a super open plan layout - having originally served as an antique shop, what is now the main living area extends to over 25ft in length. This light and airy space has two large sash and case windows to the front and has access both from the entrance hall as well as direct access from the High Street. With plenty of room for family or social gatherings there is also access to the rear into the adjoining conservatory. A lovely addition to the property with peaceful outlooks and access to the sunny walled courtyard.
The basement level has a lovely ambience with well-considered lighting and features such as the exposed stone wall. The room to the front with below street windows is currently utilised as a sitting room/dining room with double doors at the rear opening to the adjoining modern kitchen. For those that like a large open plan ‘live in’ kitchen this area could certainly offer that and would make for a great entertaining space. Whilst not currently used, there is direct access from the High Street into the basement level which could easily be reinstated if desired.
First floor level provides a spacious double bedroom with large front windows and feature bookcases; from here a door opens into the adjoining dressing room/morning room - currently fitted with extensive storage this is a very versatile space with a large window overlooking the courtyard at the rear; with some simple repositioning of the doorway, this could easily provide a separate double bedroom if preferred. These rooms are served by the very luxurious bathroom with a real sense of indulgence in part due to the antique style white suite, complete with roll top bath.
The second floor boasts large dormer windows both to the front and back. To the front, the open views take in the River Tweed and look onwards to The Cheviots. The room at the front is currently utilised as a reading/TV room with access to a restful double bedroom at the back. Again with some re-positioning of the access doors, these rooms could easily be separated to provide individual double bedrooms if preferred. Usefully this floor also hosts a well-appointed shower room with white suite and fully tiled walls.
It should also be noted that excellent storage is provided for with built in cupboards at basement, first and second floor levels.
A sunny walled courtyard lies to the rear of the property; completely private this peaceful area provides a hidden getaway with plenty of room for patio furniture and a selection of pot plants etc. A very useful external store under the conservatory provides great garden storage.
