Planning in place for both the extension to the traditional lodge and new build in the adjacent plot!
Set to the edge of the bustling and vibrant market town of Kelso, this exciting opportunity to develop a Victorian lodge and adjoining plot, is set opposite the charming Shedden Park in a desirable catchment for amenities and schooling, and includes planning in place to create a stylish home with extension to the existing lodge and the erection of a family home on the neighbouring plot.
Rosebank Lodge itself is a striking period sandstone property; formerly used for office space and comprising entrance hall, three public rooms, kitchen and W/C, it would easily convert to a residential property, and boasts character features such as the traditional open gabled entrance porch, polished dressings and octagonal chimney stacks. The rear access from the lodge opens to a private courtyard with a paved area, a garage and useful stone built outhouses for storage. The adjoining plot currently hosts a steel framed depot building and yard, but provides excellent scope for a further detached dwelling with the full relevant planning in place.
Kelso, which lies at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers, is one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders. Notable features are the 12th Century Abbey, the Flemish style cobbled square, Floors Castle and the old bridge across the Tweed. The town has good educational and sporting facilities and many quality shops. The area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with fishing on the Tweed and is an increasingly sought after location within the Borders.
