General Information
A Grade B Listed Georgian town house situated in a prominent corner position to the north west of the Abbey in Jedburgh.

Jedburgh is a traditional market town with a population of approximately 4,000 and given its historic setting attracts a significant level of seasonal tourist trade. The town has a good range of shopping facilities, with a blend of craft, antique and artisan retail outlets. It is situated to the southern fringe of the Scottish Borders and benefits from good road links to the other main Borders towns and the national road network via the A68 trunk road.

1 Abbey Close is well placed to attract custom from the many tourist attractions within the town centre. Alternatively, it offers scope for a range of alternative uses including bed and breakfast as part of the main house, office, treatment rooms or indeed incorporating into the town house as additional living accommodation.

A three storey end terraced Grade B Listed building dating to the early nineteenth century situated on the corner of Abbey Close and Castlegate – a short distance from the town centre. The building is of traditional construction built out of finely dressed squared sandstone under hipped roofs clad in slate. Internally the subjects retain a large degree of character including period features such as cornicing, dado rails, staircase with wrought iron balusters and polished timber handrail. The property has timber framed sash and casement windows throughout which are understood to have been refurbished in recent years.

Whilst held under a single title, the subjects compromise a self-contained ground floor café/restaurant (1 Abbey Close) and a townhouse on the upper levels (26 Castlegate).

The restaurant has not been trading in recent years, but when you operated by the current owners on restricted hours for a 40 week period of the year it is understood that it was extremely successful and clearly offers scope for re-establishment either on the basis of a café or restaurant format.
