The View is an immaculately presented four-bedroom detached house situated in the popular village of Gattonside, which lies just across the River Tweed from the popular Borders town of Melrose, which was voted 'One of the Best Places to Live in Scotland in 2022' by the Sunday Times.
Beautifully renovated in recent years, and occupying an elevated position with charming views, the property would make the most perfect family home in a most desirable residential area, which also benefits from a long driveway with parking, leading to a detached double garage offering conversion opportunities, subject to the necessary permissions.
Gattonside is based in a highly accessible position with the A68 only a short distance away and is approximately one and a half miles from the Borders Railway, which runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh. As well as sitting in a strong primary and secondary school catchment, the Borders General Hospital also lies on the outskirts of Melrose.
Internally, the property, which sits over two levels, comprises four bedrooms, an ensuite shower room, a family bathroom, a sitting room with study off, a dining room, a dining kitchen, a utility room and a wc. The lower ground floor also has an open plan family area with sliding doors leading out to the decking which is a particular feature. The dining room also has similar space from where to enjoy the view, providing a most flexible living space. There is good storage throughout, with wardrobes in all of the bedrooms, whilst also benefitting from gas central heating and double glazing.
Externally, the property has an attractive garden, with long driveway leading to the large detached garage, offering excellent potential to convert. There is also on-street parking immediately beside the pedestrian gate leading to the front door. With two fabulous decked areas, one accessed from the ground floor level, and the other leading off the family area, they offer an excellent space for more informal entertaining. Bounded on three sides with mature beech hedging, there is also a generous lawn area to the side, plus paved pathways and terraced borders making this garden easy to maintain and easy to enjoy.
Only a relatively short walk into Melrose via The Chain Bridge over the River Tweed, Edinburgh and Newcastle are easily accessible via the A68, and most Border towns are readily available from this central location, with the aforementioned Borders Railway nearby.
Edinburgh 38.5 miles. Melrose 2.5 miles. Galashiels 4 miles. Tweedbank 1.5 miles (All distances are approximate)

Location:
The View sits in the desirable village of Gattonside which lies a short distance across the River Tweed from the attractive Borders town of Melrose, regarded by many as the most picturesque of the Borders towns and was voted 'One of the Best Places to Live in Scotland in 2022' by the Sunday Times. Melrose is situated between the Eildon Hills and River Tweed. There are two highly acclaimed restaurants and a lively village hall within Gattonside itself.
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 greengrocer, a fishmonger, two butchers, antique and interiors shops, small supermarkets, a large selection of coffee shops, 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 that runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, with the station 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.
