Broomlands House is an imposing former mansion house which sits towards the edge of Kelso surrounded by its own private grounds. The listed building dates from the late 1700’s and has been divided to provide six traditional apartments. The elegance and grandeur of the building is certainly a theme that is continued throughout 3 Broomlands House with its traditionally high ceilings, decorative cornicing in addition to the sash and case windows complete with working shutters. The interior would now benefit from some modernisation but presents a perfect opportunity for those seeking to upgrade to their own specification and would be ideally suited either as a main residence or a ‘lock up and leave’ Borders bolthole/holiday home.
The entrance door located on the side of the building opens to a carpeted communal entrance. Apartment 3 is located at entrance level.
The entrance hall opens into a spacious reception hall which, due to its proportions, ensures a lovely warm welcome and benefits from good storage. Extending to the rear and with a real sense of grandeur is the drawing room; with its excellent proportions, decorative cornicing and full height windows which afford a lovely view over the private gardens. The master bedroom enjoys a similar aspect and plenty of natural light with the benefit of built in storage. Bedrooms two and three are positioned toward the front of the apartment; bedroom two being a pleasant double whilst bedroom three is a an ideal single room or perhaps study or reading room as it has more recently been used. The kitchen enjoys a woodland aspect to the side and provides plenty of room for every day dining; currently fitted with a good range of wooden units but with scope for modernisation. Usefully there is both a shower room and a separate cloakroom- with the suite incorporating a large walk in shower, WC and wash hand basin. The shower enclosure has been refitted in recent years. Next door there is a separate cloakroom with WC.
A large basement area provides very useful storage rooms which are shared between the apartments in the building. Number 3 also benefits from a private, lockable storage cupboard. The basement can be accessed from the communal staircase within the building or via an external door from the gardens.
