The property was the administrative headquarters of The Brothers of Charity for most of the 20th century. The property sits in generous grounds with mature trees and benefits from southerly views across the River Tweed to the Eildon Hills.Gattonside House and grounds are situated on the south side of the B6360 which runs through the village, with the River Tweed forming part of the southern boundary. The total site extends to around 33.1 acres (13.4 ha).There are currently two vehicular access points from the B6360. The main access will be in the centre of the site and the existing access to the western boundary by the Lodge is to be closed as part of the development and retained for the use of pedestrians and cyclists.Gattonside House is a Category B Listed classical villa built over four floors with adjacent chapel to the east. In addition to the main property, there is a former Coach House and Cottage to the west and north which are also Listed and a Lodge which is located at the western boundary of the site.Much of the site is undeveloped and a range of modern buildings are proposed for demolition as part of the redevelopment plan.
