‘12 Main Street’ is a very sweet and traditional stone built cottage enjoying a pleasant village location yet within easy reach of Kelso. The cottage is charming from the outside and this is a theme that is continued throughout the interior. In its current state the property offers an exciting opportunity for a DIY enthusiast as it would now benefit from modernisation and general upgrading with scope to extend to the rear subject to the appropriate consent. It presents an ideal opportunity to create a quirky holiday let, Border’s bolthole or equally suitable as a main home.
Heiton is a popular location and is some two miles west of Kelso. The village is close to the famed Roxburghe Golf Course, the Teviot Water Gardens and many other Borders attractions. Kelso itself lies at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers and 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 Tweed fishing, National Hunt racing and walking in the nearby Cheviot Hills. Edinburgh is approximately 45 miles distant.
