About the property
‘The Tofts’ is a very desirable part of Kelso, a quiet and established cul de sac which is within easy walking distance of the town centre. This property makes for an ideal starter property or equally well suited as a family home; the accommodation throughout is of good proportions and is well appointed with neat décor and a recently fitted modern kitchen. The gardens to the front and rear are of a good size and designed for ease of maintenance. The private drive to the side provides space for several vehicles and could also provide space for further extension if desired (subject to permissions)
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 neat gravelled garden designed for ease of maintenance lies to the front of the property with double wrought iron gates to the side which open onto a monoblocked driveway providing useful off-street parking.
