THIS Georgian townhouse – which covers three floors – is currently on the market in the Borders for offers over £335,000.

Chester House, 11 Church Street, Eyemouth, dates from the 1750s and is a Grade A listed building.

The five-bedroom house was home to the owners of Chesterbank Farm at Burnmouth.

Although listed as an ideal family home, Chester House also has the opportunity to become a business.

A Hastings Legal spokesperson said: "Typical in its Georgian style of symmetrical architecture the external appearance of the property is elegant and understated, which in turn creates a balanced and practical internal layout; offering up to five bedrooms the accommodation also offers plenty of versatility with options for home working or perhaps even opportunities to run as a B&B if desired.

"Set quietly within a walled courtyard setting, the property benefits from a conveniently central location with all local amenities and attractions within short walking distance; that coupled with the immaculate interior presentation and thoughtfully landscaped patio garden makes this an extremely rare opportunity for those seeking a unique period property in a thriving coastal town."

Chester House has a large basement, a private patio garden, two lounge areas, a dining kitchen and two bathrooms.
