The property comprises a principal residence with six bedrooms, two holiday cottages, both with two en-suite bedrooms, a further one-bedroom holiday let, and attractive grounds of about four acres, with mature garden, fenced paddock, woodland and two stables.

Mark Paton of Galbraith in the Scottish Borders, said:

“Allanbank Courtyard used to be the stable block for Blackadder Estate and the house is built around a delightful central courtyard with archways on both principal elevations.  The home retains much of its charming history and character both internally and externally.

“The west elevation of the courtyard is where the wonderful spacious  family accommodation can be found and this enjoys outlooks towards the garden and paddocks. The east elevation contains the Coach House which forms part of the holiday letting business and is also home to an art gallery.  These open and flexible spaces present an incredible opportunity for a variety of uses.

“This property provides a tremendous opportunity for a family home with the additional value of the short term lets providing a potential income stream.”

Within the grounds to the east of the courtyard itself are Groom’s Cottage and Gardener’s Cottage which, along with the Coach House, provide for a successful holiday letting business.

The main residence has three reception rooms and six bedrooms (three en-suite). Additional  rooms include a kitchen area, office, studio, music room, family bathroom, and a conservatory with French doors to the garden.  The home benefits from Biomass heating and solar panels.

There are two Coach Garages off the courtyard, with largely undeveloped rooms above, and a dovecot.

Allanbank Courtyard is located about five miles from Duns, a bustling market town with a wide variety of independent shops, supermarket, bank,  primary school and the highly regarded Berwickshire High School which forms the heart of the local community.

The larger centres of Kelso and Berwick upon Tweed provide a wider range of amenities. The mainline East Coast railway is located at Berwick upon Tweed, 10 miles away, with services to Edinburgh and London.  The A1 is only 8 miles away linking to Edinburgh and Newcastle airports.

The Scottish Borders is well known for its recreational, amenity and sporting opportunities and Allanbank Courtyard enjoys a central position being a short distance from the Lammermuir Hills and the spectacular scenery found along the east coast of Scotland.

Allanbank Courtyard is for sale through Galbraith for a Guide Price of £1,300,000.
