Ednam is a popular small village close to Kelso - one of the most sought after towns in the Scottish Borders. The village has a good community spirit which centres largely on the village hall, along with a primary school and church. It is surrounded by gently undulating arable lowland.
Kelso is arguably the most attractive of the Borders towns and is set in an area of great scenic beauty. The town is noted particularly for its fine Market Square and for the remains of one of the great Border Abbeys. Kelso sits at the confluence of the River Tweed and the River Teviot and is a good shopping centre, together with providing an excellent range of social and sporting facilities including golf, bowls, tennis, swimming, curling, National Hunt racing and fishing. The Cheviots, which are within easy reach offer great opportunities for outdoor pursuits. A new high school has been built on the northern edge of the town and Kelso has good road links with the other principal towns in the Scottish Borders. There are railway stations at Tweedbank (16 miles), Berwick upon Tweed (22 miles), and Edinburgh is an hour's drive away.
The Cart House enjoys a peaceful, tucked away location in Popple Burn Park, a cul-de-sac, and double wrought iron gates provide access to a generous driveway with ample turning and parking for several cars
DESCRIPTION and ACCOMMODATION
The Cart House was converted in 2003 with great flair and imagination from a former cart shed and farm buildings, and finished to a high standard with modern comforts. The original arches that the carts used to enter the stone building became the six feature arched windows. These were echoed by three glazed arched french doors giving outlooks over the beautiful private part-walled garden. This gives a feeling of light and spaciousness as you enter and pass through to the lounge/dining room, attached garden room and the kitchen.
Upstairs the two spacious principal bedrooms both have en suite shower rooms, windows to the front and rear garden, and velux windows with blinds. A glazed door opens from the master bedroom on to a balcony with a staircase to the garden.
The kitchen door opens into the double-height atrium which cleverly links to the single story part of the house, and gives it great versatility. To your left is a glazed door with ramp access and the door to a large storeroom/office and the garage. Facing you is a cloakroom and the utility room. To your right are the rooms overlooking the garden - the snug with a wood-burner, three double bedrooms, a walk-in wardrobe, family bathroom, and two sets of french doors.
The house is beautifully presented and provides flexible, light and well appointed living accommodation, which can easily provide multi-generational living and a home office depending on family requirements.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
The Cart House has a particularly appealing part-walled and South facing back garden which provides good privacy and beautiful outlooks from most rooms, as well as being child and dog safe. The garden is landscaped with patios, lawns and borders containing shrubs, perennials, fruit trees and evergreens and benefits from external lamps, power points and water tap. The driveway is flanked by lawns and borders and provides very generous car parking and turning space.
The attached double garage has direct pedestrian access from the living accommodation. The garage has ample power points and a water tap. There is a greenhouse in the garden.
On entering Ednam on the B6461 from Kelso take the first left turn into Eden Road. Follow the road round to the right at the Church and pass the village hall on your right before the road veers left. Popple Burn Park then lies on your left and The Cart House is on your left as you drive along the cul-de-sac.
Strictly by appointment with the selling agents.
