Rutherford House has an excellent, central location within Town Yetholm and enjoys attractive westerly outlooks over the pretty village green. The village's amenities are within easy walking distance. Rutherford House lies within Yetholm's conservation area.
Yetholm is a charming and well kept conservation village which lies in the Bowmont Valley amidst beautiful scenery at the foot of the Cheviots. In former times the village was famous as a centre for smuggling and as a home of the Yetholm Gypsies who were involved in this trade and have long since departed. Yetholm provides a good range of local amenities including pubs, post office, general store, butcher and primary school. Kelso is a good shopping centre with a wide range of recreational and sporting facilities along with a well regarded secondary school. A new secondary school is now nearing completion.
Rutherford House is a charming, traditional mid-terraced family home which provides versatile and well proportioned accommodation and has potential for further development which could even involve the formation of a second dwelling.
The house, which is Listed (Category B) as being of special architectural or historical interest, benefits from oil fired central heating and partial double glazing. The central heating is served by a "Rayburn" cooker in the breakfast room. The house has excellent storage space and exudes charm.
Rutherford House has a gravelled garden/car parking area to the front and a delightful enclosed courtyard garden which is very private and is eco-friendly with plenty of bird life.
There is a large garage/workshop with access from Grafton Road.
The property should appeal to families, extended families and those looking for a potential business venture/lifestyle change given the possibility of either extending the existing accommodation or creating a second dwelling with access from Grafton Road.
