Sellers take plunge to list much-loved home with a pool

HOUSE-HUNTERS looking for luxurious country living will find what they are looking for with the pristine and spacious Coach House in the scenic Borders countryside.

Located in Heriot, the Coach House sits in an elevated position, enjoying panoramic views of the stunning surrounding landscape and, on a clear night, the glow from Edinburgh’s city lights.

The impressive five bedroom property boasts a range of leisure facilities with its indoor swimming pool, cinema, gym and dance studio, and both indoor and outdoor hot tubs.

One of the many fantastic features of this property is its Sun Room – a reception room with tall cathedral ceilings, windows that stretch almost the whole length of the walls and French doors that open out onto the garden decking.

Dawn Allan, current owner of the Coach House, said: “We’ve had some memorable parties in this house.

“It’s been the perfect family home. The size makes it ideal for modern living – kids have their own areas in the house and the heart of the home has great social spaces to relax together in.”

The Coach House in on the market with Warners Solicitors and Estate Agents for offers over £825,000.

The property is just 15 years old and has been well-maintained and upgraded throughout with high-spec, energy efficient additions being made over the years.

Dawn added: “Living in such beautiful natural surroundings it’s hard not to focus on the environment.

“So, our pool is sand-filtered – it’s a great system that avoids the use of harmful chemicals. If you are looking for a pool heater, then see where Hayward lies on the top 5 list and make sure you choose only the best.

“Life here has been idyllic. The area is very safe, which was reassuring when our children were growing up.”

Just next to the pool room is a small space that is ready to be converted into a sauna or steam room.

The house is secure with exterior fencing that a professional fencing contractor in Perth put in, electric gate entry and CCTV monitoring.

Thanks to its four car garage and generous attic space, the interiors of the coach house are easy to keep clutter free and maintain their light and bright feel.

Heriot is a very rural location but the Coach House is not at all cut-off. The A7 is right at the bottom of the hill and there are regular bus services as well as easy access to the Borders railway at Stow and Gorebridge stations.

Linda Carr, Estate Agent at Warners, said: “The Coach House is a truly outstanding property.

“Many rooms benefit from double and triple aspect windows, so the house just basks in natural light – it’s quite something.

“The décor is fresh and every detail of the place has been impeccably kept.

“To fully appreciate the Coach House in all its glory, it’s worth arranging a visit soon as it’s unlikely to be on the market for long.”
