Rathmore sits within the Peebles Conservation Area in an elevated position close to, south of and within easy walking distance of the town centre. lt commands open and extensive views over Victoria Park to the hills beyond. Peebles High School is close by and Priorsford Primary School is within walking distance. The surrounding houses are mainly traditional villas of a similar size and style to Rathmore and retaining good sized gardens.
Peebles is a thriving county town, but relatively close to Edinburgh, which makes it popular for commuters and families. lt retains a full range of shops and services, along with three primary schools and a well regarded secondary school.
Rathmore is a substantial, semi-detached, Victorian villa, comprising a main house with well proportioned reception rooms and kitchen on the upper ground floor and bedroom accommodation on the first and second floors. ln addition, there is a "garden flat" on the lower ground level with separate external and internal access.
The original house is built over three and a half storeys and retains many of the original architectural features, including ornate cornice work in the reception rooms; tiling to the reception hall floor; and an attractive sweeping staircase. To the rear is a more modern extension providing the kitchen accommodation at ground floor level.
The property would now benefit from some upgrading and modernisation.
Outside, the property is accessed off Springhill Road by a tarmacadam driveway (shared with the neighbouring property) with electric gate. There is a separate set of steps from the pavement leading to the front terrace, which comprises gravel car parking, lawns and flower beds. To the side (south) there is a further car parking area, beyond which a timber fence/gate screens the rear garden. The rear garden comprises a lower level paved patio, with steps down from the main garden level. The rear garden is enclosed by a mixture of stone walls, fence and hedging and is screened and sheltered by trees and shrubs. lt comprises a large lawn with flower beds and shrubs, with a timber decking area adjacent to the rear of the house.
The rear garden includes a timber summer house. Garden storage is provided by way of an "undercroft" store below the decking and kitchen extension. To the front of the house is a small "understeps" outside shed, suitable for coal and log storage.
