Full description

Tenure: Freehold

'Tweedbank' is an exceptional detached Victorian property; dating from around 1870. Arguably one of the most prominent properties within Coldstream and occupying one of the most enviable positions with southerly outlooks to the rear directly over the River Tweed and towards the Cheviots and Flodden Battle Field in the distance. The accommodation throughout is remarkable with many original features having been retained and with intricate detailing throughout including the exquisite cornicing, ceiling roses and marble fireplaces. Tweedbank is currently vacant and offers an extremely rare opportunity for someone to sympathetically upgrade the property to reinstate its original grandeur and splendour which is still apparent throughout but does now require some delicate restoration to restore it to its former glory.

Coldstream itself is well known as the gateway to Scotland and is set on the banks of the River Tweed with beautiful walks along the riverside and in the nearby Hirsel Country Estate. Local sports include an 18-hole golf course at the Hirsel, tennis courts, horse riding and fishing on the Tweed. It also provides easy access to large variety of walks within the Northumberland National Park and lovely unspoilt beaches on the Berwickshire coast. Coldstream town offers good primary schools and easy access to secondary schools, a variety of shops and is well placed for easy commuting to both Edinburgh and Newcastle via the mainline station at Berwick upon Tweed only 20 minutes away
