About the property
6 Abbey Court
Positioned on a quaint and traditional street just off the cobbled square of Kelso, 6 Abbey Court is a stunning Georgian Townhouse, with a striking white painted frontage and impressive neighbours including the Turret House, St Andrews Episcopal Church, and of course the stunning 12th Century Abbey. This charming property dates from around 1820, and provides for modern life exceptionally well with well appointed public space, a family kitchen, 7 apartments and two bathrooms; offering flexible and versatile accommodation, with colourful planted frontage and a private courtyard style garden lying to the rear.
Kelso is a most attractive and increasingly desirable Borders town. With a vibrant community and excellent educational and recreational facilities both in the town and the surrounding countryside, including golf, fishing, swimming, curling, walking, horse riding and National Hunt Racing. The town centre is beautifully kept; with cobbled streets and a host of independent shops and retailers, cafes and restaurants. The town is well connected for further Border towns and villages, and benefits excellent road links both north and south with local rail connections at nearby Berwick and Tweedbank,
Presented over three floors, the townhouse hosts three public rooms with seven apartments, two bathrooms and a cellar. The main entrance opens to a bright central hall; providing access to the cellar, storage cupboard, the public rooms and kitchen. Both reception rooms are tastefully decorated, with the living area generously proportioned with double astragal window to the front in keeping with the period features, focal fireplace and neutral fitted carpeting and décor. The adjacent sitting room is a comfortable dining area or snug, with good levels of natural light and attractive tiled flooring; leading to the adjoining family kitchen which is fully fitted with attractive units, tiled flooring and splashbacks, integrated appliances and a lovely dual aspect. A carpeted stair leads from the main hall to the first floor, which includes a formal dining room also suitable as a bedroom, with lovely outlooks to the front. A further two double bedrooms and nursery or dressing room are also positioned on this level with the main bathroom opening from the landing and including a bath and freestanding shower with attractive tiling and a window to the front. A further turned staircase leads to the top floor, with a mid-landing window providing good natural light and outlooks. Two further double bedrooms looking over the rooftops are positioned on this level; both with good head height, with a single bedroom or dressing room and a centrally located shower room between. Both single dressing rooms on the first and second floor would be ideal as child’s room, walk in storage or ensuite facilities, and the accommodation offers excellent flexibility.
A charming planted frontage provides splash of colour; with neat hedging and shrubbery, trailing creepers and window boxes. A lovely suntrap courtyard garden lies to the rear, benefiting with excellent privacy and high surrounding walls with trailing ivy enclosing the garden. The south facing courtyard is ideally low maintenance, with pergola, trestle and providing a sanctuary setting to enjoy.
Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage.
