Behind this Heiton villa’s imposing period-style facade is a modern high-spec family home
Built around 12 years ago as part of a small development by Charles Church, number 36 Bowmont Court is an unusual property in that its double-fronted design incorporates Neoclassical elements which, at first sight, suggest it is in fact a period property and a rather grand one at that. Located within walking distance of the village of Heiton and just two miles from Kelso, the detached villa occupies substantial garden grounds and overlooks the Roxburghe Hotel’s championship golf course. The setting is quiet, peaceful and offers myriad outdoor pursuits, including scenic walks to the Roxburgh Viaduct, along the River Teviot and across to Roxburgh village and Wallace’s Tower.

And in the kitchen, classic cream units fitted on two walls provide abundant storage and worktop space while also concealing a full complement of integrated appliances and leaving the centre of this spacious room free for informal dining furniture. Double doors lead from the hall into the formal lounge, a lovely room with a classical fireplace, marble hearth and inlay and inset Living Flame fire as the main focal point. Ideal for summer entertaining, the adjoining dining room has French doors to the rear patio and garden beyond. Outside, the tiered rear garden and side garden are fenced and mainly lawn, while at the front of the house is a Y-shaped monoblock driveway with plenty of space for parking/turning. The property also has a detached double garage. Owned by the same family from new, this handsome villa has been meticulously maintained and is presented in move-in condition throughout. As a family home and a place to bring up children, it arguably ticks all the boxes.
