Located in a small and very established cul de sac, 3 Kingscroft is located towards the outer edge of Kelso yet benefits from being within easy walking distance of the local schools and other amenities. This detached, well-proportioned property presents the perfect opportunity for those seeking a family home in the town which offers accommodation of generous proportions coupled with plenty of garden ground both to the front and to the rear. The current vendors have implemented several upgrades to improve the property such as the creation of a very stylish ground floor shower room, new double glazing not to mention some reconfiguration of the living accommodation on the ground floor to make the space much more useable and family friendly. The semi open plan layout of the ground floor works particularly well for modern family life with the sizeable lounge to the front leading into the adjoining dining room which in turn opens into the spacious and very sociable dining kitchen at the rear which is connected directly to the gardens via patio doors. In comparison to many other similar sized properties in the town, 3 Kingscroft has the advantage of a large garden; the outside areas extend to the front and rear of the property and benefit from excellent levels of privacy. Having been thoughtfully landscaped and fully enclosed at the rear, the outside space is an ideal environment for children or pets with sun throughout most of the day and plenty of space for family or social gatherings.
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 entrance hall ensures a lovely warm welcome and enjoys plenty of natural light thanks to the glazed door at the rear complete with glazed side panels which open directly to the private gardens. Excellent storage provided by two built in storage cupboards. Extending to the front and with lots of morning sunlight, the lounge is a well-proportioned room featuring a large triple window and a recessed gas fire with mantle over. Leading off the lounge, the dining room has plenty of space for entertaining, again benefitting from a front facing window and access at the rear into the adjoining family dining kitchen. Perfect for family gatherings, the dining kitchen is connected directly to the gardens via patio doors. Falling naturally into two areas, one end of the room has plenty of space for every day dining or as a family room, whilst the kitchen area is fitted with an excellent range of modern wall and base units with ample worktop space and a large window overlooking the gardens. A large cupboard within the kitchen provides good storage and houses the central heating boiler. The creation of the downstairs shower room has been well considered and stylishly finished in contemporary style with a white suite incorporating WC, built in wash hand basin with vanity storage and large double shower cubicle/ wet room with glass panel and tiled surround.
The area of garden to the front of the property is well planted and well established which enhances the levels of privacy. Mainly laid to lawn with planted borders and the private driveway extending to the side with garage beyond. Gated access at the side of the property opens into the very private and generously sized rear garden. Having been thoughtfully landscaped the rear garden hosts several sheltered seating areas, colourfully planted beds and borders as well as neat lawned areas. The patio doors leading directly off the dining kitchen are ideal for summer BBQ’s and entertaining whilst the fenced and hedged surround ensures plenty privacy and provides a safe environment. A door from the rear of the garage opens to the rear garden which contains an aluminium glazed greenhouse and timber garden shed.
The private monoblocked drive to the side of the property extends to the double garage. The drive comfortably provides parking for up to three cars with space perhaps for a caravan or similar if required. The double garage, with light and power has plenty of additional storage space as well as room to the rear for a workshop. Rear door to the garden.
