Property description

Abbey Row, formerly an imposing townhouse in Georgian style overlooking the grounds of Kelso Abbey, is a striking traditional sandstone building listed of historic interest and occupying a prime location in the centre of Kelso.

Abbey Row, formerly an imposing townhouse in Georgian style overlooking the grounds of Kelso Abbey, is a striking traditional sandstone building listed of historic interest and occupying a prime location in the centre of Kelso.

In recent years this has been converted and adapted for office use and offers excellent space with private parking to the front, and equally would be of interest to develop as apartments or to reinstate the original town house with the relevant permissions.

The property offers an opportunity for development, with accommodation over two floors and a basement below, and with the original stables or garage to the side providing further development scope subject to the appropriate permissions. The building is B listed and located in an excellent part of the town with a quiet aspect towards the Abbey.


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.
