Firstly, 8, The Granary in Abbey Row, Kelso, forms part of the striking former granary building which was converted in the 1990s. This charming Kelso apartment is ideal for those seeking a secure and peaceful, town centre location.

Located just a stone's throw from the main cobbled square, overlooking Kelso Abbey and the church yard, the building is set within easy reach of all local amenities. Benefitting from a secure gated entrance and parking, this bright and beautifully-presented two bedroom apartment is ideally suited as an easily-maintained property.
