Peacefully nestling in a tucked away conservation area, 11 Belmont Place is situated just a stones throw away from Kelso Abbey and the River Tweed. This property would make for an ideal main home for those that require a central location but also, due to its close proximity to all local amenities and with the River Tweed close by, it is arguably the ideal property for a holiday let investment or weekend retreat. Internally the accommodation extends over three floors and offers some flexibility whilst externally there is a continental style courtyard, ideal for those looking for some private outside space with very little maintenance.
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.
Ground Floor Accommodation
A small cobbled area to the front of the property ensures a traditional welcome with ample space for pot plants, garden chairs etc. A traditional part glazed timber entrance door extends into the welcoming hallway which is fitted with practical tiled flooring with a carpeted staircase to the rear extending to the upper floors. An understair recess provides excellent storage whilst a door to the rear allows direct access to the courtyard. The sociable dining kitchen occupies the ground floor; this is a lovely traditional room with a sash and case window to the front overlooking St Andrews Church opposite and fireplace creating a pleasant focal point. The dining area provides ample space for a family dining table whilst the kitchen to the rear is fitted with a good range of shaker style wall and base units with window overlooking the courtyard.
First Floor Accommodation
The lounge to the front benefits from two large sash and case windows which enjoy pleasant outlooks to the Church; this is a light and airy room with plenty of traditional character provided by the feature fireplace which houses an electric stove in addition to the original exposed floorboards. The bathroom is also located at this level and is fitted with a freshly presented white suite comprising WC, pedestal sink and panelled bath with tiled surround and shower over.
Second Floor Accommodation
Both bedrooms are located on the second floor; the master room being a particularly spacious room to the front of the property enjoying a similar aspect to that of the lounge whilst the second bedroom is peacefully located to the rear with a small paned sash and case window. The landing at this level also provides very useful built in storage.
A neatly presented low maintenance courtyard lies to the rear. This is a lovely space enjoying good privacy with a lovely continental feel. Ideal for those who are looking for some outside space which requires very little maintenance.
