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 gated entrance leads to the side vennel and garden to the rear with a stone garden store to the side. A panelled Georgian entrance door with transom window over provides an impressive entrance and opens to a bright hallway with deep sill window to the side of the stairs providing good natural light and a useful deep shelved below-stair cupboard. The downstairs is floored throughout with oak effect flooring giving good flow and a sense of space, while the main room has plenty of space for sitting to front and dining to rear. The room enjoys a good sense of space and light with the high ceiling, deep sill sash and case window and the former fireplace providing a focal point with shelved cupboard to side.
