Property of the Week

The Old Paper House is a four-bedroom detached cottage set in 0.6 acres of ground in the sought-after village of Newstead.

The property is a conversion of an early 19th century barn, carried out in 1989 to the highest standards to create a unique and charming family home and could also lend itself well to bed and breakfast.

The accommodation comprises: Entrance hall, bedroom one, inner hallway, utility room, family bathroom, kitchen, formal dining room, lounge, bathroom two, bedroom two, first floor landing, bedroom three, bedroom four with dressing room.

Delightfully situated between the Eildon Hills and the Tweed Valley, the property lies within easy reach the historic Abbey town of Melrose.

St John’s Wynd leads to the site of the first masonic lodge in Scotland. Only a small remnant with a marker stone and plaque now remain, immediately adjacent to The Old Paper House.

Newstead is reputedly the oldest continually inhabited settlement in Scotland, lying close to the Roman settlement of Trimontium.
