'Stichill North Lodge' is a truly charming detached lodge house which is nestled into a lovely semi rural spot with woodland backdrop and easy transport links to other Border towns and villages. The lodge has been extended to the rear to create an excellently proportioned family home or equally well suited to those who are simply looking for a quaint country retreat. The original lodge offers a range of traditional features as you would expect including open fireplaces, high ceilings and bay windows. Externally the mature, well tended gardens enjoy absolute privacy with well stocked borders and flower beds not to mention several sheltered seating areas and ample space to the side of the property for further extension if desired.
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.

The main family bathroom is fitted with a four piece suite incorporating a bath with separate shower cubicle.
