Originally dating back to the 1700’s, Lyon Cottage is a rather deceptive mid terrace property enjoying a convenient central location within the popular village of Town Yetholm. The scale of the property is perhaps not apparent from first impressions with the accommodation comprising: lounge with multi fuel stove, a spacious dining kitchen with utility room, three bedrooms (Master with en-suite), family bathroom and floored attic. Externally the gardens are delightful and neatly presented to provide colour and interest throughout the year with the benefit of 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 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
A solid timber entrance door opens to a warm and welcoming entrance hall with carpeted staircase leading up to the upper accommodation. Positioned to the front of the property, the lounge is a lovely room with front facing windows allowing excellent levels of natural light. This room has lots of charm with a central focal point being provided by a multi fuel stove set on a black stone hearth with brick surround. The kitchen lies to the rear of the lounge and is a well proportioned room. Freshly presented and fitted with a good range of wall and base units with a ‘Stanley Stove’ providing a lovely feature and a worthy addition. There is ample space for a family dining table and chairs if desired. A pantry cupboard provides good additional storage, in addition to the utility room which is a very useful facility and allows direct access to the garden.

Upstairs on the half landing lies the master bedroom and family bathroom. Two steps lead off to the master bedroom which enjoys good levels of natural light provided by the dual aspect windows with uninterrupted views towards Staerough Hill.
