About the property
‘Newridge’ is an individually designed and very thoughtfully planned detached family home; completed in 2008 the property enjoys an enviable location with superb open outlooks over the adjoining farmland yet within only a few minutes drive of amenities and schools in Kelso. Internally the property offers particularly well proportioned and versatile accommodation with some rooms offering flexibility in terms of their use, depending on requirements. Externally the property has recently been re-painted and the large gardens are very neatly presented and well tended with excellent levels of privacy and sun throughout the day; fully enclosed and as such providing a safe haven for both children and pets.
Kelso, which lies at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers, is one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders. Notable features are the 12th Century Abbey, the Flemish style cobbled square, Floors Castle and the old bridge across the Tweed. The town has good educational and sporting facilities and many quality shops. The area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with fishing on the Tweed and is an increasingly sought after location within the Borders.
