The Old Abbey School,Melrose
Melrose, TD6 9SH
3 Bedroom, Detached House
A charming Category C listed period property situated in the pretty town of Melrose offering the perfect accommodation for family living. It also offers the potential to create an independent living area for flexible use.
The Old Abbey School is a substantial, detached early Victorian townhouse dating from approximately 1850. It began life as the stables for the Episcopalian Rectory next door, before being converted into a small private school and then into a private house. Extending to just over 2,230 square feet the house is constructed of dressed stone under a slate roof with an attractive bay window on the front elevation. Leading off the central hallway are three main reception rooms. Also on the ground floor there is a family lounge, dining kitchen/breakfast room, large utility area and family bathroom.
The remainder of the accommodation is also well proportioned with separate staircases giving access to three double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and a further family bathroom.
The Old Abbey School has several garden / patio aspects. At the entrance are double wrought iron gates set into classic stone pillars providing access to a large gravel driveway, giving plenty of off road parking. A paved path leads to the front door. Set into the garden wall is a deceptively spacious single garage extended with a recently constructed workshop, both of which have power, water and light. Stone walls and a garden fence surround the house with several sheltered terrace patio/lawn areas from which the garden can be enjoyed at different times of the day.
