Full description

Tenure: Freehold

30 Riverside Drive is a superior detached family home which is nestled peacefully into the far corner of this highly regarded cul de sac within the East Broomlands estate built by reputable local builders M&J Ballantyne. The position of the property is quite unique and regarded as one of the most desirable plots within the development in that it occupies a double sized corner plot and as such provides much larger than average, fully enclosed and professionally landscaped gardens which enjoy roof top views to the south over woodland and farmland. The upper most area of garden benefits from its own vehicular access and has in the past had planning permission granted, therefore provides possibilities and scope perhaps for further development. Internally the layout of the property has been thoughtfully planned and cleverly designed to fit in perfectly with modern family life, featuring a private master bedroom suite on the ground floor with the remainder of the bedrooms and living accommodation situated at first floor level which benefits from direct access to the gardens.

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.
