END TERRACED GEORGIAN TOWN HOUSE
IN SUPERB LOCATION

To say that this beautiful early Georgian town house enjoys a prime location would be a gross understatement. The views over the River Tweed and the world famous Junction Pool, are simply stunning. The large mature garden takes full advantage of the superb vistas, yet this marvellous position is combined with  a central location. The house itself is full of character, and has a wealth of pleasing traits together with spacious accommodation set over several floors, including a basement, with its own private entrance, which could readily form an independent flat, ideal for ‘granny’ or guest accommodation, perfect also for those who require a home office suite.

LOCATION
Kelso, situated at the confluence of the Rivers Tweed and Teviot and having as its focal point a Flemish style Town Square, has a population of approximately 6,200 and is considered by many to be the most attractive town in the Borders. There are excellent shopping, educational and recreational facilities, the latter including National Hunt Racing, Curling, Golf (including the magnificent Roxburghe championship course), Swimming, Rugby, Tennis, Cricket, Bowls and Fishing.  Kelso is within easy reach of all other parts of the Borders and lies approximately 43 miles south of Edinburgh, 25 miles west of Berwick-Upon-Tweed, with its main line Railway Station and 70 miles north of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

Approaching Kelso from the bridge, turn left just past the flats on the left.  At the bottom of the courtyard parking area - near the church, there is wrought iron gate, accessing all the houses in the terrace. Number 30 lies at the farmost end of the row.
