Hidden away at the end of a leafy drive in a substantial private garden, the elegant proportions of this six bedroom Georgian townhouse with open fire and classic period styling is a warm and welcoming gathering place for relaxation, celebrations or country pursuits.
Six bedroom Georgian townhouse
Close to renowned Lower and Middle Tweed fishing beats and just a gentle wander from the charming cobbled Market Square of Kelso, this grade II listed property has ample entertaining space for extended families, friends and sporting parties, with the option of privately catered services for the ultimate holiday indulgence.
Arranged over three floors, the overall feel is comfortably elegant with generous proportions, working shutters and delightful cornicing offset by quality furnishings and antique detailing. The period lines of the drawing room and dining room on the ground floor are perfect for entertaining, whilst the Adam style curve of the open plan kitchen is a super spot to sit and contemplate the day ahead cradling a morning coffee as the morning sun filters gently through the trees.
On the second and third floor, the subtle heritage shades of the six double bedrooms (two en-suite) feature big cosy beds and quality linens, each with zip and link option for complete flexibility.
Outside, the house sits in 1.85 acres of lawned garden flanked by large coniferous and deciduous trees for complete privacy and perhaps a spot of croquet on the lawn and an afternoon barbecue on the terrace.

Kelso is a thriving market town set around a charming cobbled square with rich historical features and architecture including the outstanding Abbey ruins, the grandeur of Floors Castle and the splendid Rennie Bridge where the grooves made by the ‘reluctant pennies’ of those crossing the bridge towards the toll-house in the early 1800’s can still be seen along the parapet to this day.
You will find excellent local amenities here and the town is home to a super range of independent shops and country sports outlets where you can indulge in a little retail therapy, or purchase fresh local produce and holiday provisions from quality independent traders, including a fabulous fishmongers, butchers shop, and a number of small bakeries.
For dining-out, The Cobbles and Oscars Restaurant are both highly regarded for their friendly atmosphere and excellent food, or for light lunches you will find plenty of tempting treats in the many cafes in the town - including 'Off The Square', the Hoot ‘n Cat, or the Terrace at Floors Castle. Alternatively why not enjoy a little bit of food heaven in the Roux Restaurant at the nearby Roxburghe Hotel.

"Just to let you know we thought Edenside House was absolutely perfect. Although it may have been a bit large for just the 5 of us, we loved it. The house was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed."Kemble & friends
"We had a wonderful week at Edenside House and found everything excellent so thank you all very much. Our dog had a fantastic day running along the sand at Bamburgh and tasted sea water for the first time in his life. Very best wishes to you all."Ford family
"On behalf of our ladies walking group we would like you to pass on our thanks to the owner for a wonderful stay. The accommodation was first class. Clean and well equipped, comfortable chairs, sofas and beds, and luxurious bedding and towels."Crawford & friends
"Excellent stay as ever. House was immaculate and perfect for our needs. Have booked for next year already."Kemble & friends
"The housekeeper was so friendly and helpful. The house exceeded our expectations and was the perfect place for my birthday celebrations. This is by far the best place we have ever stayed, everything was just perfect. Thank you to the team at Crabtree & Crabtree, excellent customer service."Ms Squires & friends
"The location was perfect - so near to the centre of Kelso yet so secluded and sheltered. The layout of the house and the rooms met all of our requirements - spacious, well appointed and very comfortable with excellent views of the attractive gardens. The facilities were of a very high standard - everything did what it was supposed to do. Finally, the housekeeper had the house in immaculate condition. She was always at hand to meet the few requests we had: excellent service. We had a great time in a great house which was exactly what we were looking for!"
"As you know we have been booking through you for our fishing week many many times. We have loved the houses we have stayed at but never found the perfect one. Have this time. Edenside was wonderful. We all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly including the dogs. The garden was overflowing with flowers as well as being secure. Despite being in the middle of Kelso we felt we were in the countryside. The house lacked nothing and far exceeding expectations. The housekeeper was instantly there to replace a light bulb and be of such great help. The kitchen area was perfect for entertaining and we never even ventured to the lounge or the TV room or the dining room. Access to the outside from the kitchen suited us all including the dogs. We enjoyed some of the artwork with our Norfolk connections."Webster family
"Just to let you know that we all eleven really enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous house. We very much appreciated the high standard of all the furnishings and fittings, and the thought given to our comfort and convenience with beds, towels etc. As a group of old friends of a certain age, who have an annual holiday together, a comfortable house is vital to a good holiday and this one was exceptional. As the weather was glorious, we were outside much of the time in the beautiful garden. The housekeeper was very attentive and helpful. A very successful holiday in beautiful surroundings."Ms Laurie & friends
