#Ipage is a big SCAM! – Anyone who sees this PLEASE DO NOT USE #Ipage. I have a full time job and my time is valuable. The reason I’m spending time on this is to prevent more innocent people being scammed by #Ipage. When you search for review all the results are jammed by #Ipage’s own paid ads. But if you do research deep enough to see this. They are really a scam. They renew your site even if you chose not to. Then they charge you. There is also no option to remove your credit card information from them once you put it in. Not sure if it’s legal. And they charge customers (me, at least) randomly. They charged me one unintended renewal THREE TIMES and refused to refund me. I’ve seen a lot of scams but #Ipage is definitely the most technical scam I’ve seen. Host speed is not fast at all. The slowest, actually, in most comparisons. DO NOT USE #Ipage. Otherwise You WILL REGRET your decision! Anj Avraam, Broadway, UK, www.anjavraam.com


This impressive six bedroom detached house lies on the outskirts of Kelso just a short 10 minute drive, with easy connections through to Edinburgh and within 35 minutes of Berwick. The architect designed property was built by highly regarded local firm, John Laidlaw and Sons of Jedburgh, and benefits from a luxury feel both in its grand proportions and quality finishing.

The house has a bright south facing aspect to the front, allowing full advantage of the panoramic views; spanning across the rolling landscapes of the lower Tweed Valley to the Cheviot range, and equally impressive views to the rear over the adjoining paddocks to Hume Castle and surrounding farmlands. Set within a generous 11 acre plot and enjoying great privacy with sheltering woodlands to the side, woodland paths and pond, mature planted gardens and an impressive sweeping driveway to the front with separate drive to the parking, extending onto the working kennels and stabling to rear. Presently operating as an upmarket boarding kennels licensed for 24 dogs, this could easily serve as an ideal equestrian property with private gardens and patio to rear overlooking the adjoining paddocks.

Entering off the driveway to the front, an elegant pillared entrance opens to a tiled vestibule with cloakroom opening from the hall. The dining hall is fitted with oak flooring with an impressive bay window to the rear giving open outlooks over the garden and paddocks beyond to Hume Castle. The lounge has a fantastic feature stone fireplace with a further bay window to the front, traditional décor and ornate cornicing and a comfortable garden room opening beyond with two sets of double doors and ideal for year round use.

The farmhouse kitchen, opens to the far side of the hall, with a central island and breakfasting unit, “Lacanche” range cooker and dual aspect with a sunken snug on the lower level with French doors out to the patio and garden. A rear hall leads through to the office and a generous wash room and utility, with a further cloakroom and an integral door to the double garage.

A timber staircase leads to the sixth bedroom which could also be a second office or enviable hobby room. Upstairs, a bespoke oak staircase leads off the dining hall to the landing; with an idyllic sitting or reading area with triple windows taking advantage of the glorious views to the Cheviots. The galleried landing leads to the bedroom accommodation; with luxury Master Suite including a Juliet balcony, his and hers wardrobes and a generous en-suite with jacuzzi bath and steam shower and underfloor heating. Four further double bedrooms also open from the landing, including a second bedroom with ensuite, with a generous family bathroom all well-proportioned and tastefully presented.
