Handsome Georgian Borders house

Tweedbank House is an impressive period family home dating from circa 1806 with grand Georgian design and detail and nearly 6,000sq ft of living space.

The property has a sunny southerly aspect. In recent years it has been sympathetically upgraded, maintaining the character with high ceilings, working shutters, cornicing, deep skirtings and solid panel doors. Of particular note is the oval drawing room with its beautiful bay window, elegant proportions, ornate plasterwork and open fireplace.

Tweedbank is beautifully presented. Built on four levels the basement has its own entrance and provides useful storage space which, subject to the necessary consents, could be converted into an office.

Accommodation in total comprises three reception rooms, seven bedrooms, three bathrooms, kitchen, a basement with garden door, games room, flower room and cellar.
