About the property
‘North Cottage’ presents a rare and exciting opportunity for those looking for a pretty detached stone built cottage in a rural yet accessible location close to Kelso. The property offers fantastic scope for renovation and upgrading with the potential for further extension allowing the purchaser to create a fabulous country home of their own specification. The cottage, lies mid-way between Kelso and Heiton and as such benefits from a rural position, yet within easy reach of Kelso, local amenities and schooling.
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.
The front entrance door opens into a small hallway with doors off to either side leading into the dining kitchen and the lounge. The kitchen runs from the front to the rear of the cottage and is a fantastic space currently fitted with a range of base units and benefiting from good built-in storage. The room also benefits from large windows both to the front and to the rear which overlook the garden and ensure good natural light. The lounge which is accessed from the hallway, with further access from the kitchen, also runs from the front to the rear and currently features an open coal fire to one wall and again dual aspect windows enjoying open outlooks. A hallway extends from the lounge and allows access to the shower room and both bedrooms. Both bedrooms are well-proportioned double rooms, again enjoying aspects over the garden, and one of which benefits from built-in storage. The shower room has been refitted in recent years and comprises a white WC, pedestal sink and easy access shower cubicle with electric shower over.
There are two attic hatches; one from the kitchen and the other from the second bedroom. The attic provides excellent scope for further extension if desired with windows already in situ and, indeed, the neighbouring cottage has been extended into the attic which would indicate the provision for doing the same at ‘North Cottage’
A large garden extends mainly to the front of the property with hedge surround and open aspects over the surrounding countryside. An area of garden extends around the side of the cottage with a further area to the rear and a detached timber garage beyond.
