Sheer genius! A three-in-one family home only a walk-from the beach in the picturesque village of Coldingham
Virtually every house move is triggered by a need, be it the need to relocate to another part of the country for work, upsize, downsize or myriad other reasons – all of which and more can be satisfied by the diversity of Scotland’s property market. Newly on the market in the Berwickshire coastal village of Coldingham, Gosmount Hill Farm is a property that ticks all the boxes in terms of location – idyllic rural setting only a short walk from the village and award-winning beach, easy commuting to Edinburgh by road and by rail from nearby Berwick, excellent local amenities and a huge variety of outdoor leisure pursuits. However, arguably Gosmount’s biggest and best unique selling point is its sheer size coupled with the way in which the property is configured to create not just one but three, beautifully refurbished abodes – and still have scope for further development.

Gosmount Hill Farm, Coldingham
Originally a farmhouse and barn dating back to the 1800s with later additions, Gosmount has been developed in recent years to form a four bedroomed main house, integral self-contained annex with letting potential – and in addition, an attached two-storey cottage. There is also a refurbished and re-roofed workshop (formerly a barn) with light and power and connecting door to two garages - all of which could potentially be converted to bunkhouse accommodation for divers in the area – plus an upper area of garden with potential for building (all subject to planning).

A spiral staircase rises up to a landing upstairs with built-in storage, off which are two further double bedrooms with dormer windows and fitted wardrobes. Newly decorated, the annex, which can presently be accessed from the hall in the main house and externally, consists of a tiled shower room, kitchen/diner with fitted appliances, and an open plan 23ft long bed-sitting room with built-in storage and French doors to the rear courtyard. Last but not least, the cottage is attached to the main house at one end but otherwise completely separate with no access between the two. This is a charming property with a spacious 22ft dual aspect open-plan kitchen/dining room, 25ft living room with multi-fuel stove and windows on three sides, ground floor bathroom â€“ and upstairs, a shower room and two double bedrooms with characteristic beamed ceilings. Services are separate from the main house.
Gosmount has well maintained garden grounds, mainly south facing and benefitting from panoramic views over the surrounding countryside, while the nearby village of Coldingham is famed for the quality of its beach and coastal waters that attract scuba divers from far and wide. The village also has a primary school, shop, pub/restaurants, garage and easy access to the A1 linking Edinburgh and Berwick upon Tweed, where the mainline train service takes just three hours 40 minutes to London.
