Full description

Tenure: Feudal

21 West High Street is a traditional townhouse in a pleasant village location; having been upgraded and extended to the rear the property is larger than you expect from first impressions. Unusually the property has a stone bothy to the foot of the garden and whilst it is now in need of some renovation it is currently used as storage but does have potential for various uses or could be removed to provide additional private parking. Greenlaw is well suited for those looking for a village way of life but is within commuting distance of Edinburgh so offers the best of both worlds.

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.

A traditional timber entrance door opens into a small but useful vestibule with practical laminate flooring and a large built-in understair cupboard providing good storage. Ceiling light.

LOUNGE 2.72m x 4.77m (8'11" x 15'8")

To the foot of the garden lies a stone bothy with double doors to the front leading off 'Todholes' and a further door to the rear allowing access to the garden. The stone bothy does now require some renovation work but does currently provide good storage with possible scope for further development subject to the necessary consents. Alternatively for those looking to create addition private parking, there would be scope to remove the bothy but retain the concrete base which in turn would make ideal basis from which to create a car port, parking or perhaps a garage if desired.

To the rear of the property lies a nicely sized enclosed garden which enjoys good sun throughout the day and is mainly laid to lawn. Accessed both from the side of the property and to the rear from the side of the stone bothy. A decked terraced which lies immediately to the rear of the property provides a pleasant seating area and can be accessed via the double doors off the family room.

Mains water, electricity and drainage. Double glazing. LPG central heating.

All carpets and floor coverings will be included in the sale.
