This individually designed townhouse offers something a little different; located down a small cobbled street just off the main Square, the property enjoys a quiet yet convenient location close to all amenities and with views from the upper floor towards the River Tweed. The accommodation extends over three floors with some interesting features such as the exposed stone wall within the top floor living room. The layout has also been thoughtfully planned with the living room occupying the top floor, designed to make the most of the outlooks. This property presents an ideal opportunity for those looking for an easy-to-maintain town centre base which has the added benefit of a private walled courtyard as well as off street parking.
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 education and sporting facilities and many quality shops. The area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits including fishing on the Tweed and is an increasingly sought after location within the Borders.
GROUND FLOOR ACCOMMODATION
A traditional entrance door opens into a useful vestibule which in turn leads into the main entrance hall. The dining kitchen is a lovely sociable room which has windows on two sides as well as glazed double doors which open directly into the walled courtyard. The room provides ample space for dining and the kitchen itself is fitted with a good range of wall and base units with block wood worktops and tiled splash backs. Built-in appliances include a gas hob with electric oven and grill whilst there is space for a slot-in dishwasher and fridge freezer. The utility room provides a good additional facility and provides plumbing for a washing machine and space for further appliances if required. Unusually there is also a cloakroom facility on the ground floor with WC and wash hand basin.
FIRST FLOOR ACCOMMODATION
The carpeted staircase with exposed timber spindles leads to a bright first floor landing with window to the front and useful under stair storage. Both bedrooms are located at this level; nicely proportioned rooms that benefit from plenty of light thanks to the traditional sash and case style windows. The bathroom adds a real touch of luxury and benefits from a four piece suite incorporating a WC, pedestal sink, free standing bath and a separate shower cubicle.
SECOND FLOOR ACCOMMODATION
The carpeted stairs continue to the top floor and open directly into the impressive lounge which is of generous proportions; this room features an exposed stone wall which gives a lovely touch of original character. Again this room enjoys good light with windows on three sides and views to the rear towards the river.
The private walled courtyard is a real bonus and provides a sunny and sheltered spot, ideal for BBQ’s and summer dining. Double doors from the kitchen open directly into the courtyard whilst there is also separate gated access from Oven Wynd.
An unusual find for a property in such a central location, there is off street parking for one vehicle.
