Top Floor Flat, Wilderbank House is a bright and spacious first floor three-bedroom flat in a popular residential area of the large Borders town of Galashiels. Forming part of a large and impressive detached property, which was built in the mid-19th Century for the Brown family, who were mill owners in the town, it benefits from striking views over Galashiels and towards the Eildon Hills.

Only a short distance from the Borders Railway station, which runs to Edinburgh, local amenities are close at hand as are most Border towns.
A particular feature of the property is the size of the rooms which are of excellent proportions, with high ceilings and some charming period features. The accommodation lies across a split level with a small internal staircase and generous reception hall and landing.
Internally, the living space comprises three main bedrooms, a wet room, a bathroom, a large sitting room with dining area, a dining kitchen, and a separate wc. There is also good storage throughout and ladder access to the attic.
The property is accessed by a shared driveway and sits within large grounds, with parking and two garages which are particularly useful. The garden sits pre-dominantly to the front, with additional garden ground to the side, which is mainly laid to lawn with attractive shrubs, hedges and trees. There is also a stone outhouse, ideal for storing garden equipment.

Most Border towns can be reached from this central location, with the A7 having direct routes to Edinburgh and Carlisle is immediately available, as well as the Borders Railway which only make this region more and more accessible.

LOCATION

Local tourist attractions include Old Gala House and Abbotsford House, the former home of Sir Walter Scott, with its award-winning visitor centre as well as many other attractions in nearby Melrose and other Border towns.
Among the independent shops there is also a cinema, a health centre, a swimming pool, gym, dentists, orthodontist and a new Transport Interchange built primarily around the new train station in conjunction with the Borders Railway which is a particular bonus. Local sports teams include Gala RFC, Gala Fairydean FC, and Gala CC and local festivals include the historic Common Ridings held in the summer which is of particular note.
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.

Galashiels has six primary schools, and nearby Melrose is home to St Marys Preparatory School with secondary schooling at Galashiels Academy. The Borders College and Heriot Watt University also have a campus in the town, and there are also a number of churches in the area. The Borders General Hospital, the largest hospital in the Scottish Borders is only four or so miles away, on the fringes of Melrose.

Galashiels sits in an easily accessible area and can be reached by the A7 which runs through the town and provides 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 aforementioned station in the town. There is also a busy bus service which runs from the Interchange, lying beside the railway, 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 39.5 miles and 68 miles away respectively.
