Border Ice Rink Bungalow has a unique location on the edge of Kelso’s race course and golf course and enjoys attractive outlooks over them both. The bungalow is nicely tucked away behind the Border Ice Rink whilst being within comfortable reach of Kelso’s amenities. To reach the bungalow drive through the Border Ice Rink car park to the rear of the building.

Arguably the most attractive of the Borders towns, Kelso is set in an area of great scenic beauty and is noted particularly for its fine Market Square and for the remains of one of the great Border Abbeys. The town sits at the confluence of the River Tweed and the River Teviot. Kelso 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. There are plans to build a new high school in the town. Kelso has good road links with the other principal towns in the Borders and there is a main line railway station at Berwick upon Tweed. The Waverley Rail Link between Galashiels and Edinburgh is to re-open in September 2015 with the terminal being at Tweedbank which is approximately 16 miles from Kelso.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire an attractive detached bungalow which originally belonged with the Border Ice Rink before being sold to the current owners in 1985. The versatile, family sized accommodation is well appointed and benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazing. Indeed, two new triple glazed windows have recently been installed. The central heating boiler has recently been serviced. Kitchen and bathroom fittings (which include a power shower) are modern and there is good storage space in the attic with loft ladder access.

The bungalow sits within its own attractive garden grounds which include lawns and borders along with an electric water feature. Arched trellis with double seat. Ample off road car parking. Border Ice Rink Bungalow has a good range of outbuildings including a single car garage (with electricity), timber workshop (with electricity), summerhouse (with electricity), 2 garden sheds and an aluminium and glazed greenhouse. In addition to the ample car parking space within the property’s boundaries the bungalow has two car parking spaces in the adjoining car park.
