Forming part of this distinctive terrace in an excellent position within Kelso, 2 Maxwellheugh Terrace offers the best of both worlds with a successful combination of traditional charm and modern fixtures and fittings. The cottage is surprisingly well proportioned with light and airy accommodation, presented in contemporary neutral style whilst retaining some lovely original features. Ideally suited either as a main or second home, the property also benefits from off road parking and a private enclosed garden.
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
An unusual Gothic style red painted panelled timber front door opens into a light and airy hallway with carpeted staircase extending to the upper floor and with useful understair cupboard which benefits from central heating and houses the utility meters. The walk in utility cupboard provides a very useful facility with the wall mounted central heating boiler, front facing window as well as plumbing for a washing machine and space for fridge freezer. The lounge is a particularly well proportioned room with triple deep sill front facing windows and a lovely tiled open fireplace to one wall with timber surround which provides a lovely focal point.

Appliances include an integral oven with gas hob and extractor hood above, dishwasher and circular stainless steel sink with drainer to the side. Two Velux windows ensure good natural light whilst a part glazed door to the rear allows access to the parking area and the garden which lies beyond.
