The kitchen, recently upgraded, is the ideal social space central to this comfortable home; with a relaxed feel, elegant matt grey fronted units are complemented with a contrasting feature Rangemaster cooker, with a stylish central island providing an ideal spot for morning coffee and with space for dining furnishings to the side. A separate dining room caters for family get-togethers and hosting friends, with a modern and spacious bathroom also at ground level. Upstairs, a spacious lounge is positioned with a wonderful dual aspect and elevated outlooks over the eildons and beyond, complete with a cozy woodburning stove.

The upper level offers additional scope, with a double bedroom and a further room perfect as a fourth bedroom, study, home office or hobby space.

The gardens are truly a delight; fully enclosed with excellent privacy, they include a lavender walk and summerhouse, ideal seating areas for al fresco evenings, with the patio area a sundowner spot looking over towards the Eildons. The property also has a greenhouse, log-store and a former bothy stone outbuilding, ideal for additional storage.


The ever popular Melrose – voted the best town to live in Scotland in 2018, it’s the undoubted reigning champion across the region in the popularity stakes and a firm favourite for families, retirees and tourists alike. 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, making it quite the idyllic spot.

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.

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.
