30 Belmont Place
Belmont Place has a tremendous riverside location in the heart of one of the most popular towns in the Scottish Borders. The property lies within Kelso's conservation area and sits on the north bank of the River Tweed, enjoying fantastic outlooks.
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 is currently being built on the northern edge of Kelso.
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 principle towns in the Scottish Borders and there are railway stations at both Tweedbank (16 miles) and Berwick upon Tweed (25 miles).
30 Belmont Place is a superb traditional end-terraced townhouse which has been Listed, Category B, as being of special architectural or historical interest.
Whilst the house is understood to date from the early 19th Century it has undergone sympathetic improvement, upgrading and extension in recent years and now provides nicely proportioned, well appointed and beautifully presented family sized accommodation. The house is well served by bathrooms, shower rooms and WC.
30 Belmont Place sits within attractively landscaped garden grounds which benefit from Tweed views and include lawns, trees, shrubs, private "gin and tonic" terrace and good off road car parking. There is a single car garage with the house, along with a useful garden store. Shared courtyard.
Primary residency of the property would entitle the owner to membership of Kelso Angling Associations Salmon Beat. Their trout permit provides 4 miles of trout and grayling fishing on the River Teviot and a further 5 miles on the Tweed.
30 Belmont Place has been used as a holiday home in recent years and is shown on the Scottish Assessors website as providing self-catering accommodation. The rateable value is shown as £4,050, this having been effective since 1st April 2017.
