Cotterlee backs on to the B6461 Ednam Road on the northern edge of Kelso. The property has an easterly aspect to the front. Kelso’s race course and golf course lie on the opposite side of the B6461 to the property.
Considered by many to be the most attractive of the Borders towns Kelso is noted particularly for its fine Market Square and for the remains of one of the great Border Abbeys.
The town provides a good shopping centre together with an excellent range of social and sporting facilities including golf, bowls, tennis, swimming, curling, National Hunt racing and fishing. An impressive new high school has recently been built on the northern edge of Kelso, along with a new primary school in Broomlands.
Kelso sits at the confluence of the River Tweed and the River Teviot and the surrounding countryside is noted for its scenic beauty.
Kelso has good road links with the other principal towns in the Scottish Borders and there are railway stations at both Tweedbank (16 miles) and Berwick upon Tweed (25 miles).
Cotterlee is an impressive stables conversion in a private, yet very accessible, location on the edge of one of the most sought after towns in the Scottish Borders.
The accommodation was created in the mid-1980s when the former Bunclody Lodge Stables were converted to the current dwelling and kennels.
The kennels have since been removed, leaving an attractive family home with adjoining stables which have conversion potential - subject to consents.
The accommodation is all at ground floor level and benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazing. There is good built in storage space including a part floored attic with ladder access.
Entrance porch, hall, lounge with conservatory off, TV room/bedroom 4, dining room/kitchen with sun room off, rear hall, utility room, shower room (with shower, basin and WC), 3 double bedrooms and bathroom (with bath, basin, WC and bidet).
There is a separately accessed family/games room adjoining the existing accommodation and it would appear to be a fairly straight forward job to create direct access to this room from the existing accommodation.
GARDEN and OUTBUILDINGS
An attractive feature of Cotterlee is its spacious, private garden with good car parking, lawns, borders and a patio.
The former stables are currently divided into six sections, one of which has been fitted out as an office. The stables are all about 4.25m deep and their widths are 3.63m, 3.63m, 3.78m, 3.48m, 3.62m and 9.53m. The 9.53m wide section was formerly two stables with widths of 3.74m and 5.79m respectively. Whilst the stables appear to have potential for conversion to residential use, either to extend the existing living accommodation or to create an additional dwelling, they also appear to have potential for business use - subject to consents.
From Kelso take the B6461 Ednam Road and Cotterlee backs on to the east side of the road opposite the race course and golf course. The property lies within the 40mph speed limit signs. Access to Cotterlee is via a gravelled driveway at the north end of the property which sweeps round to its front/east. There is ample off road car parking.
