Teviotside has a picturesque location overlooking the River Teviot close to the Kalemouth Suspension Bridge . The house enjoys excellent outlooks and has been designed to make the most of its riverside setting.
Teviotside sits amidst scenic Borders countryside between Kelso and Jedburgh, close to the Teviot Smokery restaurant/shop. Kalemouth lies approximately 2 miles from Heiton and the Roxburgh Hotel and championship golf course.
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.
Teviotside is a tremendous architect designed house in a scenic and accessible rural location. In addition to its fine views over the River Teviot the house enjoys views to the Cheviots at first floor level.
The bright, versatile and imaginatively designed family sized accommodation benefits from electric under floor heating and a gas fired stove in the sitting room. Windows are double glazed and include picture windows overlooking the Teviot. Kitchen and sanitary fitting are modern.
There is a formal garden on three levels which is well stocked with dwarf azaleas, roses, a rockery and herbaceous border. This includes a seating area overlooking the river. The rest of the garden includes grass land planted with snowdrops, many daffodils, tulips and wild flowers. An orchard includes eight productive apple trees, two plum trees, boarded vegetable beds and a row of autumn raspberries. A path, surrounded by bluebells in the spring, runs down to the river and there is great potential for further garden development.
Interesting bird life on the river viewed from the house include duck, swans, kingfishers, etc and there are sometimes visits from otters. This is in addition to a varied garden bird life.
Teviotside owns the salmon fishing rights from the Teviot Smokery boundary down to the chain bridge below, as well as the trout and winter grayling fishing. There is a path down to the river where the old foundations of the bird hide are and where there is room to develop a boating area.
