Dating back to 1648, Coutts Court was originally the home of John Coutts a prominent merchant and former founder of Coutts Bank In London. Full of character and charm this stunning townhouse boasts three floors, each accessed off the elegant sweeping stair which is naturally lit by the original large ceiling cupola. Coutts Court was acquired by the current owner some 14 years ago and has undergone an extensive program of upgrading taking care to retain its many period features and character, yet allowing for today's modern comforts with the house now boasting a well equipped luxury kitchen, modern shower room and en-suite and a new gas central heating system. Taking full advantage of this delightful and unique townhouse, and it’s perfect location in the historic port of Montrose, the owner runs Coutts Court as a very successful boutique guest house and Airbnb, and can be sold as such with furnishings, bedding and crockery all available.
