About the property
14 Birch Avenue is a desirable and well appointed detached park home, located within this popular and highly regarded retirement village. The property offers bright and airy accommodation which is well appointed throughout whilst externally there is a fully enclosed, low maintenance garden with a lovely woodland backdrop. As with all properties in the village, there is a detached garage and a lengthy private drive to the side with space for several vehicles.
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.
A lengthy gravelled drive extends to the side of the property with a detached garage beyond. Steps with a wrought iron banister extend to the part-glazed entrance door situated to the side of the property which opens into a welcoming hallway with good storage provided by a cloaks cupboard adjacent to the front door, a boiler cupboard and an additional storage cupboard. A shelved recess provides a pleasant display area with further storage below. The dining lounge is a particularly spacious L-shaped room which is flooded with natural light thanks to the double aspect windows both to the front and to the side. The lounge area has a pleasant focal point provided by a tiled fireplace with timber surround and matching hearth, whilst the dining area provides ample space for a large table and chairs if desired and is conveniently located next to the kitchen. The kitchen itself is fitted with an excellent range of wooden fronted wall and base units with ample worktop space and tiled splashbacks. Appliances include a stainless steel sink which sits below the side facing window in addition to a four ring gas hob with extractor hood above, separate eye-level oven and grill and space allowing for a slot-in washing machine and fridge/freezer. A side door allows access to the garden and a built-in recess provides a pleasant display area with further cupboards below. The main bedroom is situated to the rear of the property and enjoys a delightful aspect over the private garden beyond thanks to the glazed double doors which open directly onto a paved patio area. This room benefits from built-in wardrobes, as does bedroom two which is a further well-proportioned double bedroom, this time with a side facing window. The shower room is fitted with a white suite comprising WC, pedestal sink and corner shower cubicle.
A detached timber garage lies towards the rear of the property with an up and over door to the front and a further rear door allowing direct access from the garden. The garage benefits from light and power. The lengthy driveway to the front provides ample parking for several vehicles.
A very private, low maintenance garden lies towards the rear of the property with a lovely woodland backdrop. The garden incorporates various paved patio areas designed to make the most of the sun throughout the day and is planted with a selection of mature trees and shrubs.
