About this property

  • Bellspool Coach House was originally built as the stabling and carriage quarters for Dawyck House around 1863, with further development in 1909. It was then converted into a home in 1999 and the current owners have updated the property again during their ownership to create a beautiful and comfortable house whilst retaining its original features. The property occupies an idyllic rural position adjacent to the River Tweed.

    Imposing stone pillars and a sweeping driveway lead round to the back of the house, which is as equally impressive as the front façade. On entering under the Victorian red brick archway, a spacious and central reception hallway provides access to two halls. The sitting room is off to the left and is heated by a wood burning stove making it a cosy space for entertaining throughout the year.

    The kitchen is located at the opposite end of the house and is adjacent to the snug and dining room which both link together and are partially panelled. The snug has a wood burning stove which heats both rooms. The kitchen has a Rangemaster with induction hob and ample room for a breakfast table.

    On the first floor there are five generous bedrooms. The master bedroom includes a walk-in wardrobe and en suite shower room. Three further bedrooms have the use of a family bathroom with a cast-iron roll top bath. At the end of the corridor is a fifth bedroom which would be ideal as a guest bedroom as it has its own shower room and large dormer windows overlooking the garden.

    The south-facing garden provides privacy and extends to approximately one acre. The lower level is partially laid to lawn and bordered by a low stone dyke, with well stocked borders above and a path leading to the upper level. The upper level has an abundance of wild plants and beyond are young shrubs with majestic and ancient trees beyond the garden. Around the house is a gravel driveway and hardstanding with plenty of space for vehicles. There is a timber garage and log store. Connected to the property is a separate garage which links to a fitness studio and laundry room.
