6 St. Dunstans Lane is a deceptively spacious three/four-bedroom main door apartment located immediately off the High Street in the desirable Borders town of Melrose.
Requiring a fair degree of modernisation throughout, the property benefits from a garage and a large workshop area, with a small, enclosed garden and generous internal storage. With some attractive period features, the accommodation lies over two main levels and would provide a fabulous primary or secondary home in an enviable location.
Lying only one and a half miles from the Borders Railway, which runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, it also sits in a strong primary and secondary school catchment, with the Borders General Hospital located on the edge of the town.
Internally, the accommodation comprises three bedrooms, a sitting room, a breakfasting kitchen, a snug/bedroom four and a shower room. With access to a useful cellar from the breakfasting kitchen the property benefits from a gas fired hot water system, electric heating and double glazing.
Externally, the property is accessed from St. Dunstans Lane where there is a garage with large workshop area plus a hayloft above. A side door leads from the lane into the rear garden and to the main door of the property, with pedestrian access leading onto the High Street.
Edinburgh is easily accessible via the A68, with most Borders towns readily available from this central location, as well as via the aforementioned Borders Railway which lies approximately two and a half miles away.
Edinburgh 39 miles. Galashiels 5 miles. Tweedbank 1.5 miles. Peebles 22 miles. (All distances are approximate)

Location:
6 St. Dunstans Lane is situated in the heart of the attractive Borders town of Melrose. Regarded by many as the most picturesque of the Borders towns, Melrose is situated between the Eildon Hills and River Tweed. With an approximate population of around 2100 in Melrose, and 1200 in the immediate villages of Gattonside, Darnick and Newstead, the town provides an extensive choice of amenities ranging from a variety of specialist independent shops including a green grocer, a fishmonger, two butchers, antique and interiors shops, small supermarkets, a large selection of restaurants and numerous hotels, all situated around the High Street area of this vibrant town.
The thriving old mill town of Galashiels five miles to the West offers a fuller range of shopping facilities, which include Tesco, ASDA, Boots, Next and Marks & Spencer.
Local tourist attractions include Melrose Abbey, Harmony House (home to the Borders Book Festival), Priorwood Gardens, the Greenyards, (home of Melrose RFC and Rugby Sevens), and Abbotsford House with award winning visitor centre, the former home of Sir Walter Scott.
There are also a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area that include fishing on the River Tweed, fieldsports, horse riding, golf, lawn bowling, mountain biking, and a selection of walks including the Southern Upland Way, St. Cuthbert’s Way and The Borders Abbeys Way. Several festivals which include the Melrose 7’s Rugby Tournament, the Borders Book Festival and the Melrose Festival complete with ride-out attract visitors from far and wide.
Local schools include the excellent Melrose primary school, the highly regarded St Mary’s preparatory school, and Earlston High School.
The Borders General Hospital also lies just outside the town, and there are a number of churches in the area with Catholic, Episcopal and Church of Scotland represented in the town. Melrose sits in an easily accessible area and can be reached by the A68 or A7 via Galashiels that provide the links to Edinburgh or the north of England. The area is also served by the Borders Railway which runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, the station lies approximately one and a half miles away. There is also a busy bus service with links to Newcastle and Carlisle in the South, as well as Edinburgh and the other Border towns.
Edinburgh and Newcastle airports - both international, offer an excellent choice of destinations and are 45 miles and 66 miles away respectively.
