Historic home in the heart of Coldstream
Our property of the week is another Borders home with an interesting history, set in the heart of Coldstream.
The property, 65 High Street, is a B-listed townhouse originally built for the Earl Of Haddington back in the early 1800s, and has 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.
It's positioned in the heart of the border town, with the convenience of all amenities literally on the doorstep, 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.
The accommodation at ground floor level boasts a super open plan layout, with plenty of room for family or social gatherings there is also access to the rear into the adjoining conservatory.
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 access to the adjoining modern kitchen.
On the first floor, there’s a spacious double bedroom and dressing room/morning room, as well as a luxurious bathroom, and there’s fantastic views from the second floor windows.
There is also excellent storage, with built-in cupboards at basement, first and second floor levels.
The property, which is rich in its flexibility, is on the market for offers over £210,000.
