About the property

Ivy House is a traditional double fronted property which is conveniently located within the popular village of Town Yetholm. Offering surprisingly spacious accommodation throughout including a particularly spacious dining lounge which extends to around 25 foot. Certain aspects would now benefit from some general modernization and cosmetic upgrading, providing the purchaser with the opportunity to upgrade the accommodation to their own tastes. Another rather surprising aspect to the property is the charming walled garden to the rear which enjoys excellent privacy with outlooks towards Staerough Hill and with the benefit of a detached garage at the foot of the garden.


Yetholm is a thriving rural community situated at the end of the Pennine Way. An excellent range of services are available locally including primary education, doctor's surgery, filling station/garage, bus services, post office, village shop, butcher's/baker's, hotel/restaurant, church, public hall and playing fields. The nearest town is Kelso, some seven miles distant, which has good educational and sporting facilities and quality shops. A recently constructed Sainsbury Supermarket is available in Kelso which is within a short drive of Yetholm. The local area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with Tweed fishing, National Hunt racing and walking in the Cheviot Hills. Both Edinburgh and Newcastle, with their International airports, are easily commutable within approximately one hour's drive, with intercity rail connection available at Berwick upon Tweed some 20 miles distant.
