*NEW PRICE*

Maplehurst is quite simply the most immaculately presented and stylish family home, which has been upgraded to the highest standard inside and out. With bespoke kitchens and bathrooms, the attention to detail is extraordinary combining period features with a modern twist. The flexible accommodation is second to none and would make a fabulous family home in the heart of the Scottish Borders.

Situated on the fringes of the Borders Town of Galashiels, which now benefits from a railway station on the Borders Railway, running to Edinburgh, the house backs onto Gala Hill, and is a real hidden gem.
Dating from 1906, and built for the Fairgrieve family, who were mill owners in the town, the property is full of elegant Arts and Crafts period features, with a subtle Canadian theme which includes wood panelling and stunning leaded glass detail. Sitting in approximately 1.35 acres of beautifully landscaped and mature garden ground, Maplehurst is reached by a majestic winding driveway.

Internally, the property comprises of eight bedrooms, all of which have ensuite facilities, a drawing room, a dining room, a stunning Siematic bespoke kitchen, a reception hall, a morning room and a downstairs cloakroom with wc. In addition to the main rooms there is a butler’s pantry, a library area on the first floor with access onto a small roof terrace, and a selection of souterrain rooms which include a laundry room, a wine cellar and storage rooms, plus a lower ground level access door to the North side of the house.

Externally there is parking at the gravel sweep to the front, and a dedicated parking and garage/utility block with triple garage, utility kitchen, workshop and refrigerated cell to the rear. A separate building houses the Biomass boiler, with pellet store which provides an attractive income over the next five years.
The gardens are a particular feature with specimen rhododendrons, mature trees, extensive lawn and attractive borders with a majestic terrace accessed directly from the dining room. There is also a charming greenhouse to the rear, and a large summer house adjacent to the main lawn.

The surrounding area is highly regarded as a tourist destination with business travellers, field sports, golf and literary enthusiasts allowing prospective purchasers to consider running it as a business.
Most Border towns can be reached from this central location, and the A7 with direct routes to Edinburgh and Carlisle is immediately available. The new Borders Railway, which runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, with a stop in Galashiels is only a matter of minutes away has made this region even more accessible.
