Tanlaw House enjoys an excellent rural location which is peaceful and yet within about 2 miles of Kelso’s market square. The property lies about 0.7 miles from the public road and access is along a good tree lined driveway.
Considered by many to be the most attractive of the Borders towns Kelso is noted particularly for its fine market square and one of the great Border Abbeys. The town provides a good shopping centre together with an excellent range of social, sporting and recreational facilities including golf, bowls, tennis, swimming, curling, National Hunt racing and fishing. An impressive new high school was recently built on the northern edge of the town along with a new primary school at Broomlands.
Kelso sits at the confluence of the River Tweed and the River Teviot and the surrounding countryside is noted for its scenic beauty. The town has good road links with the other principal towns in the Scottish Borders and there are railway stations at both Tweedbank (16 miles) and Berwick upon Tweed (24 miles).
Tanlaw House is a superb early 19th Century Estate house which is Listed, Category C(S) as being of special architectural or historical interest. The house enjoys tremendous south easterly outlooks over the Tweed Valley to the Cheviots.
The versatile, nicely proportioned and well presented accommodation includes a ground floor bedroom and bathroom and the attic store could be converted to additional living accommodation - subject to consents, if desired.

GARDEN, LAND AND OUTBUILDINGS
Tanlaw House sits within approximately 2.115 acres of beautifully landscaped and easily maintained garden grounds which include lawns, Victorian rock garden, borders, azaleas, rhododendrons, mature trees, a variety of fruit trees and a courtyard.
Outbuildings include an excellent indoor swimming pool (11m x 3.9m with a constant depth of 1.35m). The swimming pool building includes a changing room (with shower, basin and WC) and plant room (with the “Heatstar” environmental control system).
Other outbuildings include a double garage (with electricity), potting shed, bothy/tool shed, wood shed and greenhouse. The bothy/tool shed was originally built as a hen house (with nesting boxes and a rare underground tunnel giving the hens access to beyond the HaHa) and appears to have potential for conversion to a studio - subject to consent. The old hen house is Listed as being of special architectural or historical interest.
From Kelso take the B6461 Ednam road. Shortly after leaving the town, and before reaching the Race Course, turn right on to a private drive and continue down this driveway for about 0.7 miles. Tanlaw House sits on your left immediately past Tanlaw Cottage.
