About the property

Tucked off the main thoroughfare of the village and enjoying a particularly generous plot with excellent privacy and a countryside aspect, Kirkside is the ideal family home; well positioned and well maintained, with a thoughtfully designed interior allowing a good choice and flow between public rooms, with five generous bedrooms and a wraparound garden– it is an ideal balance for the modern buyer between country life and swift access to Edinburgh and amenities.

Set in a sheltered plot with mature trees and greenery providing excellent screening, the aptly named Kirkside sits in the former grounds of the village manse; positioned on a quiet street to the edge Stow, and overlooking rolling hills to the front. The walled garden opens to a generous drive accessing the garage, with neat paving winding to the main entrance; with a porch ideal for coat and boot storage extending onto the main hall. The ground floor provides a flexible use of space, with a spacious dining family kitchen at its heart, benefiting from further storage and laundry space from an adjoining utility room and shower room opening off, there is also a separate snug sitting room and a home office, which would lend itself equally well as a dining room or ground floor bedroom. Opening to the far end of the hall, a bright lounge benefits a lovely dual aspect with a sliding door directly to the patio, with a feature fireplace and adequate space for formal dining and living room furnishings. Upstairs, a master bedroom benefits excellent in-built storage and an ensuite shower room, with three further comfortable bedrooms and the family bathroom also on this level.

Externally, the garden is mostly laid to lawn with mature trees, planting and boundary walls, and certainly offer the scope for further landscaping – with plenty of room for a summer house, garden room or further cultivating, Kirkside is somewhat of a blank canvas, providing such spacious accommodation and garden, it is a forever home in a popular village perfect for any growing family.


Stow is an attractive Borders village set in the Gala Water Valley connecting Edinburgh and the central Borders town of Galashiels. The village has a thriving community and surrounding countryside providing an ideal location for outdoor activities with ample walking routes and cycle paths in the vicinity with easy access to open countryside and nearby Borders villages including the attractive neighbouring village of Lauder, only a short drive over the hill.

Village facilities include store/post office, bowling green, park, playgroup, a new private nursery, coffee shop/gallery, health centre, town hall, multi-sports court, church and a well-regarded Primary School of approximately 90 pupils.
