AN 'idyllic' Borders home has come on the market and is "ideal" for families.

3 Kaimknowe in Kelso is a four-bedroom house with views of the Cheviots.

On the market for offers over £495,000 with Hastings Legal, 3 Kaimknowe has recently been updated and is an ideal home for a "modern family". 

A Hastings Legal spokesperson said: "A stylish and spacious home ideal for any modern family, 3 Kaimknowe is set just out with the vibrant town of Kelso; providing an idyllic location and enviable balance between a country aspect with ease of access to amenities and nearby facilities.

"The property has benefited recent upgrades and is presented in immaculate condition, set within a fantastic wrap around plot backing onto grazing fields with views towards the Cheviots."

On the ground floor, a generous hallway is accessed from the front porch.

The hallways leads to reception rooms, storage, a double garage, and cloakroom.

The living room is a "super entertaining space" with French doors leading to the garden.

The spokesperson added: "The original layout was an open plan design to the kitchen, however the current owners have utilised this space further by partitioning off the lounge – though this could be opened up again to suit a buyers requirements.

"The dining kitchen opens across the hall and is bright and welcoming with a super dual aspect, and allows plenty of space for dining furnishings, again, with instant access to the patio for al fresco days."

The first floor has all four bedrooms – the primary bedroom, which has an en-suite shower room and dressing area, the additional three double bedrooms, and large family bathroom.

Outside, 3 Kaimknowe has a level lawned garden, planted borders and sheltering trees.

French doors from the kitchen lead to the patio and recently added summer house.

There is also sheltered seating which leads to the driveway, and an enclosed courtyard which opens from the ground floor utility room with additional seating and timber store.
