About the property
Oakfield Farmhouse presents a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a traditional former farmhouse with outbuildings in a town setting. The property lies off the Ednam Road within the town boundary and is conveniently located within walking distance of both primary and secondary schools, including the newly opened High School and Broomlands Primary School due to be completed in 2018. The house itself is a well proportioned family home set within approximately 0.52 acres of land. The garden grounds are generous and fully enclosed with a range of outbuildings including a studio/office conversion. In addition there is a garage and plenty of parking with space for camper van/caravan/boat.
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.
