This is an attractive traditional former farmhouse and steading in a sought-after residential location in one of the most popular Borders towns.

The property has tremendous potential for a variety of uses given its range of outbuildings, yard areas and accessible town location.

Oakfield Farm was formerly a part of the Hendersyde Park Estate, at the northern edge of Kelso, and was sold to Lothian Estates in 1951. The property was subsequently resold by Lothian Estates to the current owners in 2002 and has since been modernised, upgraded and extended to create an excellent family home with a versatile range of outbuildings.

The nicely presented and well-appointed family-sized accommodation includes a sitting room, dining room, study/fourth bedroom , kitchen, utility room, three double bedrooms and bathroom.

The house has oil-fired central heating, double glazing, a wood burning stove in the sitting room, modern kitchen and bathroom fittings.

The former steading provides excellent workshop/storage space and appears to have potential for other uses – subject to planning.

A useful central courtyard provides good off-road car parking along with access to the steading and there is further car parking space to the north of the steading. One of the traditional outbuildings has been converted to form a versatile office/playroom.

Oakfield has an attractive garden which includes lawns, flower borders, a vegetable border, plus apple and pear trees.

The property sits within approx 0.52 acres.
