  • Location

    The Rutherford Estate lies just off the A699, set between the popular town of Kelso and St Boswells; positioned just 4 miles from St Boswells and 6 miles from Kelso. The area is surrounded in glorious working countryside, with farmland, trails and the River Tweed. 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 high quality shops. The area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with Tweed fishing, National Hunt racing and walking in the nearby Cheviot Hills.

The room is furnished with comfortable lounge and dining furnishings in a neutral palate with cream fitted carpeting and complimenting wall coverings. The kitchen is off the living room and is fitted with cream fronted base and wall units and contrasting wood effect worktop. A ceramic sink and drainer is fitted under window, with electric hob and oven with extraction fan over, washing machine, fridge freezer and space for further kitchen appliances and breakfasting table.
