Just a stone’s throw away from Kelso’s iconic cobbled square, this extremely smart first floor apartment presents the perfect opportunity for those seeking a town centre base or Borders bolthole. The interior has been presented in a stylish and contemporary finish with clean, crisp decor throughout, this combined with the traditionally high ceilings and large windows help to emphasise the feeling of space. You could be forgiven for thinking you were in a modern city centre apartment such is the boutique design and interior styling; and so for those seeking either a first time purchase or a ready to go holiday let/second home, this apartment is bound to appeal. Not obvious from first impressions, the property also benefits from a balcony garden area to the rear; accessed off the living room via French doors, this continental style balcony offers space for patio furniture and is perfect for sunny evening dining.
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 solid wood flooring and clean crisp décor in this room sets the tone for the rest of the accommodation. Towards the rear and semi open plan off the lounge, the kitchen is very well fitted with contemporary white gloss units complete with, solid wood worktops, built in appliances and kickboards with recessed spotlighting. With an outlook to the front the double bedroom again features high ceilings with full height built in wardrobes providing valuable storage whilst next door, the shower room has been well planned with fully tiled walls, complimentary tiled flooring and white suite incorporating a double width floor level shower cubicle. The large mirrored wall above the wash hand basin is a clever design feature and benefits from a display shelf below.
