About the property
This distinctive B listed cottage oozes character both inside and outside; dating from around 1864 there are many original period features to enjoy which marry together perfectly with the light and airy contemporary styling of the interior. The well-proportioned accommodation together with the good sized private rear garden make this an ideal main residence but equally, due to its charm and character its bound to appeal to those seeking a holiday home in the town or simply a peaceful weekend retreat.
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.

Extending to the rear and with patio doors leading directly to the gardens, the dining kitchen is a surprising space.

Nicely presented in light and airy tones the bedroom also benefits from extensive built in storage to one wall. Next door the bathroom is very well appointed and freshly presented with partially tiled walls and a modern white suite complete with shower over the bath.
