Sitting in a peaceful location in the foothills of the Eildon Hills, this former 19th Century coach house combines all the charms of country living in the very heart of Border country.
Perfect base for country sports enthusiasts
Close to middle Tweed fishing beats and the picturesque villages of St. Boswells and Melrose, it is a perfect base for country sports enthusiasts or those looking to explore the scenic attractions of the area. Set around a private courtyard in the rolling lowlands, you will find little to interrupt the day here other perhaps than the odd passing tractor and a cheery wave from the local farmer.
Inside, the property benefits from a generously proportioned double aspect drawing room presented in a traditional country house style. This includes an extensive library which guests are welcome to enjoy in front of the warming ambience of a large open fire. The original coach house windows are a characterful feature of this room which fully maximise the sunshine and light overlooking the courtyard towards open fields beyond.
The beamed kitchen and dining room successfully combine both traditional and contemporary finishes while a large separate utility/boot room is perfect for drying off the four-legged members of the party!
