Recently renovated detached country cottage enjoying a most delightful rural location with open outlooks yet within easy reach of Kelso
Dating back to 1890, this striking period property has been carefully renovated to host comfortable accommodation on two levels; with a welcoming lounge at its heart with warming woodburning stove, library area and open views of the majestic Hume castle and countryside beyond, the cottage also provides a modern kitchen with sun porch opening off, a ground level bedroom and shower room, with a master on the first floor also benefitting an ensuite facility. Full of charm and comfort, this fantastic renovation project sits in a quiet hamlet within easy access of both open countryside and nearby amenities at Kelso, and with an easily maintained private garden and off-street parking, it’s an obvious choice for those in search of a lifestyle change or indeed as a second home in the country.
The character white fronted detached property sits back from the road; with parking to the front and the neat courtyard style garden sitting behind timber fencing to the side. The main entrance opens to a vestibule, with coat and boot storage, with the ground level bedroom opening opposite. The main reception room is a wonderfully generous space, ideal for both lounge, study and dining; with excellent proportions and double windows to the front, bespoke shelving and an extremely efficient multi fuel stove with attractive surround. An adjoining door opens to the kitchen, fitted with a good selection of wall and base units with room for a breakfasting table, a rear door extends to a rear porch, perfect for sunny al fresco days and providing further storage, with a further door from the kitchen accessing the inner hall and shower room. A stair from the lounge leads to the principal bedroom on the first floor, which is a wonderfully bright and spacious room leading on to a large ensuite shower room.
Sitting just beneath the majestic Hume Castle, a well known Borders landmark, and surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, Hume is a charming hamlet of traditional and modern conversions, set just outside the town of Kelso.
