About the property
‘Tweedford’ is the upper floor of a converted Victorian sandstone Villa located at the foot of Abbotsford Grove on the banks of the River Tweed, offering a location which is rarely available on the rental market yet within easy walking distance of the town centre. Internally the property offers good sized traditional accommodation throughout with a low maintenance paved courtyard.
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.

Entering off Abbotsford Grove, the courtyard is an attractive sun trap sitting area with shared drying area on the far side accessed through a small gate with external store providing outside storage. A traditional panelled entrance door and carpeted staircase leads to the first floor accommodation with a landing window providing good natural light. The family bathroom is a good size, fitted with a three piece suite and usefully located next to the utility cupboard which is plumbed for a washing machine and tumble drier. Steps lead to a spacious central hall with glazed ceiling panel allowing additional light. The lounge is situated to the front and is a beautiful traditional room, tastefully presented and benefiting from a southerly aspect ensuring plenty of natural light thanks to a large side facing window, in addition to the bay window which makes the most of the delightful views towards the River Tweed. This is a well proportioned room with a lovely focal point being provided by an open working fire which is set within an attractive marble surround and inlay. Located to the rear of the property with two windows looking along Abbotsford Grove is the breakfasting kitchen. Fitted with a good range of wall and base units with space for slot in appliances and a useful walk-in cupboard provides additional storage and houses the boiler. The property benefits from two well proportioned double bedrooms; both with fitted wardrobes providing good additional storage. The main bedroom enjoys a lovely outlook to the front and side while the second bedroom also benefits from dual aspect windows. Centrally located is the freshly presented shower room.
