Property of the week: Superb townhouse with interesting history
Occupying a prime position within Coldstream town centre, the property at 37 High Street is a deceptive five-bed townhouse that dates from the 1700s.
The property has an interesting history, having originally served as the local farmhouse – the adjoining former byre and stables are still in situ – and offers 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.
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 accomodation includes: sitting room, kitchen, large open-plan family lounge and dining room, shower room, utility room, five double bedrooms, home office/nursery and family bathroom.
The lounge area has a feature fireplace, while the dining area is perfectly-placed for socialising and entertaining.
Overlooking the private walled gardens, the kitchen is a light and airy space with a good range of shaker-style units and worktop space. A rear door allows direct access from the gardens and private parking area.
To the front, the sitting room is a great additional living space, again featuring a large sash and case window as well as recessed multi fuel stove to one wall.
The property is on the market for offers over £295,000.
