Located only a few miles from Kelso, for those seeking a rural position that is also within easy reach of the towns amenities this property is bound to appeal. The quaint country cottage boasts an elevated position with fabulous far reaching views over the Borders countryside in addition to cottage style enclosed gardens to the front and to the rear. The interior provides plenty of charm and character with features such as the recessed fireplace in the kitchen and stripped exposed floor boards in the lounge which marry perfectly with some of the more modern upgrades that have been implemented such as contemporary kitchen fittings and tile effect flooring. Well suited as a main residence but equally so as a second holiday home with good holiday let potential.
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.
