About the property

Grandeur and elegance meet in this truly magnificent Victorian villa; a masterclass in period restoration and styling, Parkside House sits proudly within the vibrant town of Kelso, making for the perfect location that encompasses the epitome of a country home, while still being accessible to amenities and the practicalities of modern life.

The stunning property and grounds date to 1897 - luxurious in their proportions and impeccable in their finish, all have been carefully considered in this inspiring journey of homage undertaken in the last four years by the current owner to return Parkside to its former glory.

With a choice of public rooms, all flourishing with original plasterwork and cornicing, with open fires in the three principal reception rooms, there is endless space for hosting family and friends and entertaining. Practical elements are well catered for; with a more informal breakfasting room and Rangemaster sitting to the rear of the property, with an adjoining working kitchen with larder and walk-in pantry the envy of any cook. The main hall features a particularly attractive oak stair with stain glass window at the half landing. Upstairs, the first floor follows in the effortless elegance and refinement synonymous with the period, with fine outlooks over the garden below and hosting three immaculate ensuite bedrooms, a further double bedroom, a comfortable study and the family bathroom. This is supplemented with an upper apartment, originally the maids quarters, but successfully renovated into a private one bedroom sanctuary, with its own sitting room and shower room.

The main drive extends to a parking area and a gated entrance accessing the studio; a stone-built workshop sitting adjacent to the main house and fully renovated to provide a fantastic home-working office or hobby space. This in turn opens to the main garden; positioned to the rear, and abundant in mature planting, colourful established borders and sheltering trees enclose the level lawn, with the rear aspect framed by a wonderful terraced seating area.

With a rarity of this calibre of home available throughout the Borders and Scotland, Parkside offers a unique opportunity to acquire a historical property condition and central position.


•A standout period property offering an exceptional and unique home.
•Spacious interior in a classic style with elegant finishes and period highlights.
•Highly successful renovation, retaining and restoring 19th Century elements.
•Rarely available central position within Kelso on the desirable Edenside road.
•Flexibility of use – with the upper apartment and studio offering opportunity for work or family commitments.
•Stunning landscaped gardens.
•Impeccably maintained and upgraded as reflected in the Home Report.


Tucked off the cobbled square, within a short walk of the popular shops and facilities of the town, Edenside Road is a charming street lined with handsome Victorian stone built properties; with the walled garden and drive to Parkside opening off the road, and into the parking area for the property.

Kelso itself, which lies at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers, is one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders. 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 as a result.

With a range of amenities and the charming cobbled high street filled with independent shops and retailers, there are several major superstores to the edge of town, a recently completed High School, medical and banking facilities, making it an excellent choice for the modern buyer.

The area benefits swift transport links and easy access to further Border towns, with nearby rail links at Tweedbank (16 miles) and Berwick-upon-Tweed (24 miles), with Edinburgh and Newcastle within an hour’s drive for city access and air travel.
