Statement of Interest

Tweedside Road is the 19th century core of Newtown St Boswell's. The refined proportions and large windows mark Newton House out as an early building of status within the village. The villas and their gardens on the left side of Tweedside Road are the most intact, with Newton House standing apart as the best of these (Buildings Of Scotland). The house was originally a detached property with a large garden, associated with the wider Newtown farm, of which the most significant element remaining on Tweedside Road is a gable-ended red sandstone corner block, formerly part of a courtyard range and now partly converted for use as a garage by the owner of Newton House. The current owner has created a large pictorial archive of the history and development of Newton house and the wider village (2009).
