This gorgeous home, 26 Bowmont Court, occupies a prime position within the popular Sunlaws development on the outskirts of the village of Heiton, making for an impeccably finished and enviable family home.

The striking property, designed with a Georgian flair, was completed in 2006 and stands within the beautifully-kept hamlet, just outside Kelso.

The property is a short walk to the Schloss Roxburgh Hotel with its 18-hole championship golf course, fishing opportunities and soon-to-be developed spa facilities.

The public rooms on the ground floor offer the perfect space for everyone.

The plot itself is exceptionally generous; with a south-west facing aspect towards the famous Roxburgh viaduct spanning the River Teviot and majestic Eildon Hills beyond, with the rear opening to endless countryside and sheltering woodland.

It is a location which ticks all the boxes.

Inside, the grand proportions continue, with a flexible layout to suit both family living and those in search of a rural retreat to host visitors.

The public rooms on the ground floor offer the perfect space for everyone; with four separate reception areas and a contemporary kitchen.

The property has a contemporary-style kitchen.

There is also the useful functional additions of a home office, utility area and an integrated double garage.

Upstairs, a beautiful master suite is complete with a stylish ensuite, with four further double bedrooms including a second ensuite, the family bathroom, and excellent storage.

The property is finished to an exacting standard with high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout. It is ready to move into and start enjoying!

The property backs onto an area of mature woodland and benefits from a large, private, mainly level, enclosed garden.

Mostly laid to lawn, the garden is punctuated with fruit trees with colour from planted borders and beds.

This is a wonderful plot for a garden enthusiast to cultivate further or for a family to enjoy the wide-open space.

Heiton is a lovely village, situated close to the main town of Kelso, which lies at the meeting point of the Tweed and Teviot rivers, and is one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders.

The area has much to offer those interested in country pursuits with fishing on the Tweed and is an increasingly sought-after location in the Borders region as a result.

With a range of amenities and the charming cobbled high street filled with independent shops and retailers, there are several major superstores to the edge of town, and a recently completed high school, making it an excellent choice for the modern buyer.

The accommodation list includes: reception hall, drawing room, family room, dining room, TV/breakfasting area, kitchen, study, utility room, cloakroom, master suite and four further double bedrooms, bathroom and shower room, double garage, extensive garden and parking.
