The Stables House is an impressive conversion, complete with original features, of the old stable block for Whitelee House which has been transformed into a large four-bedroom detached family home.
Sitting in approximately ten acres of garden and woodlands, with stunning rural views, the property is only three and a half miles from Galashiels which now benefits from a train station for the new Borders Railway, which opened in September 2015 and runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh. Alternatively, there is also a stop at Stow, five miles away to the North.
Internally, the property comprises four main bedrooms, two bathrooms, a shower room, an open plan sitting room with dining area, plus kitchen and breakfasting area which is a particular feature. In addition to the main accommodation there is a studio/sitting room on the first floor with dining area off, which offers excellent potential for a semi-independent apartment by combining one of the bedrooms and the shower room.
Externally, there is plentiful parking plus a garage with workshop and store room. The garden and grounds extending to approximately ten acres lie predominantly to the front, with the kitchen garden housing a large greenhouse and a variety of fruit trees and vegetable beds. There is also a terrace immediately outside the sitting room, with superb rural views. The large field immediately outside, at present, is predominantly a willow plantation, which runs down to the ancient woodland complete with burn which is particular feature, from where you can enjoy a number of woodland walks.
Most Border towns can be reached from this central location, with the A7 with direct routes to Edinburgh and Carlisle is immediately available, via car or bus with a bus stop only a short walk from the property, as well as the new Borders Railway which will only make this region more and more accessible.
