Full description

Tenure: Freehold

5 Tweed Terrace is a remarkable Victorian Townhouse which offers impeccably well presented accommodation throughout extending over three floors. The setting of the property and the views to the rear are breathtaking and rarely available within Coldstream; due to the slightly elevated position, the property enjoys uninterrupted outlooks over the River Tweed to the rear and beyond to the Cheviots in the South. Having once served as a solicitor's office, the property has been sympathetically converted and renovated to provide what is now a fabulous family home with ample space both internally and externally. Due to the layout of the accommodation the property would also easily lend itself for use as a B&B if desired with well proportioned rooms throughout, a flexible layout and bathroom facilities on all three levels.

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 and riding with Tweed fishing, walking in the Cheviot Hills and lovely unspoilt beaches on the Berwickshire coast. Coldstream town offers good primary education, 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.
