About the property

A Striking Detached Sandstone Property, Ideal for Family Living, Hosting Spacious Accommodation Including Three Public Rooms, Five Double Bedrooms including a Study and A Fantastic Attic Studio Conversion, With Private and Fully Enclosed Gardens.

In a convenient location just off the centre of Selkirk with particularly striking views over the valley and neighbouring countryside beyond, Springwood is a fantastic traditional home; beautifully presented throughout with a choice of reception areas, all tastefully finished, including five comfortable bedrooms allowing flexibility of use and a charming enclosed garden - this enviable period property would make a delightful home for any family.

Positioned on Victoria Crescent, a quiet cul de sac location off the main town with little through traffic, Springwood stands in a generous plot with a striking frontage; the sandstone detached Victorian villa is framed with stone walling and traditional iron railings, with a colourful frontage leading to the main entrance. A welcoming hallway extends to the three public rooms; with a formal drawing room to one side, which enjoying a stunning triple aspect incorporating a large bay window to the front, views over the valley and further garden outlooks to the rear, this luxurious space allows excellent space for entertaining, with a feature open fireplace and original solid wood flooring. Across the hall, a more informal sitting room is a comfortable lounge area, ideal as a relaxed evening room complete with library shelving. The dining room sits towards the rear, finished in rich tones, with the adjacent dining kitchen fully fitted with modern cabinetry and benefitting a useful utility room and access directly to the rear garden.

Upstairs, the principal bedroom is luxurious in its proportions, with beautiful countryside outlooks and offering scope to create an ensuite facility with the relevant permissions. Three further bedrooms, including a study, are positioned on this level, with a recently refitted shower room. A fitted stair extends to the converted attic; offering a fifth double bedroom and shower room, with obvious appeal for guest accommodation or to be utilised for those homeworking.

Externally, the wrap around garden is mature and well established, and offers excellent privacy with sheltering trees and a gently elevated position. The main section of garden is largely laid to lawn, with a pleasant patio area and colourful planted borders, and includes a garden shed and private drive.


The property is ideally placed within Selkirk for all town centre amenities; with a good selection of small local shops providing for everyday requirements, and schools from nursery to secondary level all easily accessible. The property also benefits from easy access to Edinburgh via the A7 and is within easy reach of the new Borders rail connections with the opening of the Waverley Line and new stations at Galashiels and Tweedbank. The area has good road and bus connections to all central Borders towns and is surrounded by beautiful countryside with rolling hills and scenic valleys all close to hand.
