About the property

With a wrap around garden and views towards the Eildon Hills and River Tweed, Thrushes Mead is a stunning detached property – making the very most of the glorious countryside surrounding it. Positioned on a quiet and charming country lane to the edge of Gattonside, the property is fully enclosed by mature hedging and sheltering trees, providing an enviable private spot within walking distance of Melrose. The striking white painted frontage, complimented by the addition of a superb garden room by Mozolowski & Murray sets the tone for the interior; which is light, contemporary and spacious.

Hosting flexible and open living space on the ground floor, with three well-appointed bedrooms and a thoughtfully landscaped garden with garage, Thrushes Mead is the perfect family home, and set to be popular!


Gattonside is one of the most charming and well-regarded villages in the Borders: beautifully kept with a friendly community of around 400 residents, the village is home to two well-established restaurants and a village hall. Gattonside Suspension Bridge links it to the ever popular Melrose – voted the best town to live in Scotland in 2018! A regular bus service runs through the village with connections to the recently opened Borders Railway at Tweedbank and Galashiels. Local schooling is available at Melrose, with the village falling into the catchment for Earlston High School or private schooling at St Mary’s Melrose. Just five minutes from the local hospital at Borders General and local attractions including Abbotsford House, Trimontium, hill walking on the Eildons and along the River Tweed, and with plenty of sporting opportunities from golf to rugby including the world famous Melrose Sevens, it’s a quintessential Borders location not to be missed.
