4 Bed House - Detached
Offers Over £480,000
Woodside House is an impressive detached property, beautifully tucked away into a private corner of this popular village with easy connections to Kelso and other surrounding towns.
Woodside House is a real hidden gem; wonderfully secluded into a private corner of the village with a lovely woodland edge aspect. The nature and scale of the property is really not at all apparent until you enter the grounds via the private driveway; having originally served as two dwellings which were combined in the 1990’s and then subsequently extended with the addition of the impressive double storey garden room which immediately catches your attention as you approach. The internal layout is such that it can easily adapt to different requirements or indeed the ever changing demands of modern family life; there is a lovely balance between living space and bedroom accommodation with the added benefit of bedroom and bathroom/shower room facilities on both levels. The grounds are extremely private and have been designed for ease of maintenance; the stone wall boundary to the rear is a lovely feature. This super family home boasts a premium location; perfect for those seeking a quiet and established village setting, yet remaining close to Kelso and other surrounding towns and villages ensuring the best of country living with plenty of convenience.
Eccles is a small borders village approx six miles equi-distant from Kelso and Coldstream, with a church and village hall. The village is conveniently situated one mile from the A697 and within an hour of Edinburgh by car with the main east coast rail line at Berwick upon-Tweed, some 18 miles distant. The Border towns of Kelso, Coldstream and Duns are within easy reach where local facilities include primary & secondary schooling, local shopping, parks and various sporting opportunities including tennis courts, swimming pool, two 18-hole golf courses and the nearby Hirsel Estate.
