7 Maxwellheugh Terrace is a truly charming ‘B’ listed stone built period semi-detached cottage; forming part of this distinctive traditional terrace the property enjoys a fabulous location within the town with an open outlook to the front and elevated outlooks to the rear; Conveniently located within easy reach of all local amenities including Sainsbury’s which is only a short walk from the property. The property dates from 1864 and offers a wealth of interesting original features both inside and out which marry perfectly with the contemporary style of décor throughout which was comprehensively renovated in 2009, including redecoration, rewiring and central heating. For those looking to purchase a second home or holiday let property in the town this is a perfect opportunity with excellent rental potential thanks in part to the strong local industry from salmon and trout fishing on the Tweed. Alternatively for those looking for a manageable property to downsize to this would also make for a well considered main home.
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
The traditional timber entrance door with canopy over lies to the front of the property and gives access to the welcoming entrance hall with useful cloakroom facility off with WC and wash hand basin. Flooded with natural light and presented in light and airy contemporary tones, the lounge lies to the front of the cottage and features an original triple sash and case window complete with working shutters, and the trademark high ceiling. A charming focal point is provided by the open fireplace to one wall with polished granite hearth, matching inlay and timber surround.

The double bedroom is a well-proportioned double room, again with shuttered sash and case windows to the front as well as a Velux window which allows for plenty of natural light.
