About the property
2A Abbey Row is a rare opportunity to purchase a stunning period property in the very heart of Kelso and must be viewed to truly appreciate its size and the elegance of its Georgian features. Restored and upgraded in 2006, it is literally only steps from the historic 11th Century Abbey. The apartment affords a mix of the contemporary and traditional with spacious and sunny accommodation extending over two floors, and a central location offering easy and relaxed living. Retaining many of its period features, including 9ft ceilings and working shutters on the first floor, each of the rooms feel special with unique views of Kelso; whether the cobbled streets of the historic town, the famous River Tweed or the Abbey and grounds.
Kelso is one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders, and with the new rail link to Edinburgh is an increasingly sought after location. Notable features are the 12th Century Abbey, the Flemish style cobbled square, Floors Castle and the old bridge across the Tweed. The town is busy and thriving with a Saturday Farmers' Market and many sporting and recreational facilities. The town has two primary schools and a High School which, last year, moved into brand new state-of-the-art premises.
Entrance Hall, 2 Reception/Public Rooms, Breakfasting Kitchen, Four Bedrooms, Two Bathrooms, Utility Room, Shared Courtyard.
