Kelso’s Former Jail and Jail House Now Offering A Rare Town Centre Development Opportunity.
Understood to date back to the early 1700’s and having served as the towns jail and jail house, this historic building now presents a rare and exciting opportunity for a town centre development project. Located just a stone’s throw away from the town centre the location is perfectly placed for access to all local amenities and offers scope, potentially for the creation of two residential dwellings or alternatively one sizeable property. The opportunities here are varied with the possibility to create a one off family home, quirky holiday property or perhaps for the retiree who would prefer the convenience of a town centre position.
The site itself enjoys a walled boundary and surrounding grounds, ideal for the creation of private gardens and parking, with vehicular access off Victoria Place.
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.
A pre planning application for the development of the building has been submitted to Scottish Borders Council and they have responded favourably (subject to conditions)
Mains services are all available nearby.
