This detached property presents an excellent and rarely available opportunity to purchase an individually built bungalow which sits within its own private gardens in a convenient location of Kelso close to all local amenities and within walking distance of Sainsbury’s. The property itself is set well back from the quiet road with lovely well tended gardens which extend to the front with a private drive and garage to the side. The accommodation is very well presented throughout ideal as either a family home or perhaps for the retiree who is specifically looking for a bungalow within the town.
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.
The driveway is situated to the side of the property with the garage beyond and a paved path extending off to the front entrance door. The beautifully tended gardens lie to the front of the bungalow.
A part glazed front entrance door opens into a useful vestibule with further glazed internal door opening into the hallway which provides excellent storage with two useful built in cupboards. The lounge is situated to the front of the bungalow and as such enjoys lovely outlooks over the private gardens beyond. This well presented room benefits from a focal point provided by the wall mounted gas fire to one wall. Extending off this room is the garden room which is a lovely addition and has been designed to enjoy the aspects over the garden; glazed on two sides and with direct access to the gardens, this room also provides ample space for a range of furniture. Located towards the rear of the property and featuring a glazed door opening to the sheltered sun trap patio, the dining room is nicely proportioned with ample space for dining table and a useful built in shelved storage cupboard. Semi open plan from the dining room is the kitchen which has been refitted in recent years to provide an excellent range of wooden fronted wall and base units with ample worktop space, tiled splashbacks and under unit lighting. Again the kitchen has a large window overlooking the garden to the rear and benefits from sun throughout the day. The main bedroom is peacefully located to the rear of the bungalow and is a bright and airy room with good natural light and the benefit of double built-in mirrored wardrobes. The second bedroom enjoys a lovely aspect over the gardens to the front and is a further well proportioned double room whilst the third room is a pleasant single or would be equally well utilised as an office if preferred. The shower room has been recently refitted and is finished in contemporary style with fully tiled walls and a white suite comprising WC, wash hand basin which is set into a vanity unit with storage below and fully tiled corner shower cubicle. There is also a sizeable attic which could provide the possibility for further extension if desired, subject to necessary consents.
A single garage lies to the side of the property with double doors to the front and lengthy driveway providing private parking for a number of vehicles. The garage benefits from light and power.
The majority of the gardens extend to the front of the bungalow and are very well tended and neatly presented comprising a main lawned area with colourful and thoughtfully planned flowerbeds and borders which provide colour and interest throughout the year. A paved patio lies immediately off the garden room and extends to the rear of the property where there is a further very private and sheltered seating area with access off the dining room, ideal for summer dining.
