About the property

This unique small holding offers a truly wonderful lifestyle opportunity in an enviable setting close to the desirable coastal village of Coldingham. The fully renovated detached property sits in grounds of just over three acres offering a magnitude of opportunities.

Nestled into a wonderful rural position just a few miles from the highly desirable coastal village of Coldingham, Cairnbank Schoolhouse offers a truly wonderful and unique lifestyle opportunity. This fabulous small holding extends to just over three acres with the grounds currently set to paddocks. The land can be accessed from the property itself as well as having an additional completely separate access off the A61107 which presents numerous exciting opportunities for its use including equestrian or live-stock, for those looking to lead a self sufficient lifestyle, potential for business use or simply those in search of their own slice of countryside to create a truly wonderful family environment. The detached three/four bedroom property has undergone a comprehensive programme of renovation in recent years with the works completed to an exacting standard to provide what is now essentially a new property with the traditional stone exterior. The layout is perfectly flexible and will easily adapt to the ever changing needs of family life with the main living areas predominantly set to the rear of the building and therefore commanding an uninterrupted outlook over the grounds and the far stretching surrounding countryside. Cairnbank Schoolhouse lies within easy reach of the coast at Coldingham and St Abbs, ensuring a super combination of country and coast whilst also benefitting from easy transport links to Edinburgh, Newcastle and The South via the A1 trunk road and local train stations.


Coldingham is a historic Borders village on Scotland's southeast coastline. The village has great local amenities and facilities with a primary school, play-park, community hall, post office, doctor surgery and Coldingham Priory which is steeped in history. The fantastic ‘Blue Flag’ Coldingham Beach is also a lovely all year round local attraction for surfers and holiday makers. A short distance north is the village of St. Abbs where there is a wonderful Nature Reserve and Bird Sanctuary. The cliff top walk from Coldingham to St. Abbs is simply stunning and is highly recommended. The area also has some of the best diving in the UK and attracts divers from all over the world. A short distance away is the fishing town of Eyemouth which has a modern high school and 18-hole golf course.

Expertly landscaped and manicured, the garden grounds are immaculately presented with very neat sections of lawn plus a sizeable raised patio terrace which commands a super view and is accessed directly from the kitchen, family room and master bedroom. A detached double garage lies towards the rear of the gardens and has been finished with the same stone exterior to that of the house itself.

Currently set to paddocks with good quality fencing, the grounds offer an obvious opportunity for an equestrian buyer. That said there are multiple opportunities to grow your own or perhaps use the grounds in a more commercial way; the current owners have in the past looked into possibility of self-contained holiday cabins and lodges.
