The ever popular Melrose – voted the best town to live in Scotland in 2018, the undoubted reigning champion across the region in the popularity stakes is a firm favourite for families, retirees and tourists alike. So what’s so special about the area?
The pull of the quaint and picturesque town lies in its beautifully kept and vibrant high street; packed with independent traders and artisan shops, Melrose retains a traditional market town feel with plenty to do - while still extremely well connected for modern requirement. The area is surrounded by historical landmarks; with Border heavy weights such Sir Walter Scott’s residence and the St Mary’s Abbey just a short walk, with the backdrop of the Eildon hills on one side, and the River Tweed to the other……it’s quite the idyllic spot!
Sitting centrally in the heart of the town, ‘The Tweed’ is the resident of the upper level of a striking stone built Victorian property. Divided into three, the building hosts a high-end retail premise occupying the ground floor, and two apartments on the first and upper levels, ‘The Tweed’ and ‘The Teviot’, benefitting their own separate entrance opening from the high street.
Both properties are available and provide a superb opportunity as an investment, having previously run as successful holiday lets, though they would also suit as a comfortable and easily maintained main residence.
The property is accessed through a secure main door which services both the Tweed and Teviot apartments – opening to a well-kept shared stairwell, extending to the first floor and entrance doors for either property.
Above the hustle and bustle of the town, The Tweed apartment lies over two floors; with no shortage of charming nooks and crannies, there is a perfect blend of traditional character features, while being fully modernised and equipped for modern living. The entrance opens to a bright hall, with further doors leading to a large and fully fitted dining kitchen, with the living room adjacent and benefitting large sash window overlooking the town below, working shutters and feature cast iron fireplace. Bedroom one also opens on this level, and is a comfortable space ideal for guest accommodation or lending itself as a home office. Upstairs, a landing extends to a bright and fully fitted bathroom and two well-appointed double bedrooms, with useful in-built storage space.
In addition to stunning local scenery, the well-connected town takes advantage of major road and rail links; sitting just off the A68 and A7 with connections to the recently opened Borders Railway at Tweedbank and Galashiels, as well as a local bus service. Edinburgh is within striking distance, just a swift 40 minute drive for the commuter, with the railway opening up the region for both work and leisure.
Local schooling is available from nursery through to primary, with private schooling at the highly regarded St Mary’s. Melrose is also within the catchment for Earlston High School – a well-considered and popular secondary, achieving excellent academic results with great extracurricular opportunities, and even featuring in Tatler magazine!
There is no shortage of sporting amenities from golf to tennis, football to rugby, and the town is proudly home to the world famous Melrose Sevens.
