A step back in time

OLD Buit­tle Tower is a B-listed 600-year-old tower near Cas­tle Dou­glas that mer­its ar­chi­tec­tural and his­toric in­ter­est on a site that can be traced back to Iron Age farm­ers.

For­mer own­ers in­clude Devorguilla, who was mar­ried to John Bal­liol and cre­ated Sweet­heart Abbey in New Abbey where her late hus­band’s heart is said to be em­balmed.

Now on the mar­ket, Buit­tle Tower has been al­tered and re­stored to res­i­den­tial use within the last 25 years but is in need of fur­ther re­fur­bish­ment and mod­ern­iza­tion to re­in­state the prop­erty to its for­mer glory.

The ac­com­mo­da­tion spans around 2,800 square feet and de­tails can be ob­tained from sell­ing agent Hast­ings Prop­erty in Kelso, which is seek­ing of­fers over £475,000.

B-LIST BEAUTY: This stun­ning 600-year-old tower of­fers de­vel­op­ers the chance to re­store the prop­erty to its for­mer glory. The fiveacre pri­vate grounds in­cor­po­rate a me­dieval court­yard and out­houses.
