Whinestane is an immaculately presented two-bedroom, two-bathroom semi-detached cottage located in the much sought-after Borders town of Melrose.
Situated a short walk from the town centre, with views back towards Melrose Abbey at the front door, it would make a charming primary or secondary home.
Within walking distance of the town centre, as well as the Borders General Hospital, the property is approximately two and a half miles away from the rail-link at Tweedbank which runs to Edinburgh. It also sits in a strong primary and secondary school catchment, a particular bonus.

Internally, the accommodation, which lies across two levels, comprises two bedrooms, an ensuite shower room, a bathroom, a sitting room, and a breakfasting kitchen. Benefitting from period features, there is a wood-burning stove in the sitting room, gas fired central heating and double glazing providing a warm and comfortable home.

Externally, the house has garden ground to the side and rear with decking, a summer house and an attractive backdrop of trees plus the Malthouse Burn at the rear. There is also a patio which is an excellent space for barbecues or informal entertaining.
Conveniently located for commuting with Edinburgh easily accessible via the A68, and most Borders towns readily available from this central location.

LOCATION:

Whinestane is located in an elevated position above 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 which is routinely named one of the best state schools in the region. 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 opened in September 2015 and runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, the station lies approximately two 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.

DIRECTIONS:
For those with satellite navigation the postcode for the property is: TD6 9QS
Coming from Edinburgh take the A68 South, passing through Pathhead, Lauder and Earlston. On reaching the roundabout, approximately three miles outside Earlston, turn right onto the A6091 Signposted Melrose and Galashiels.
Take the turn-off for Melrose and proceed into the Market Square. Turn immediately left and go up Dingleton Road, passing underneath the by-pass. Continue up Dingleton Road and you will come to Whinestane which is the last cottage (in a row of cottages) on the left-hand side about one hundred yards up Dingleton Road.

From the South, follow the A68 through St. Boswells and turn left at the aforementioned roundabout and follow the instructions from there.
