24 Abbotsford Road is an exquisite lower period villa, forming the entire ground floor of a sympathetically converted former Manse, set well back from the road in a prestigious location, with the unique advantage of complete privacy, as the sweeping driveway and grounds are owned exclusively. There is also an attached single garage. The beautiful setting and gardens (which we understand extend to approx in the region of 3/5th's of an acre) totally belie the convenience of the location, the town centre, parks and schools, are all within walking distance.
The interior is spacious and presented in pristine condition throughout, retaining a number of stunning period features such as for example intricate plaster work and cornices, original doors, shutter effect panelling on the windows and mosaic floor tiles in the spacious vestibule. The layout gives a great degree of flexibility and will be of appeal to a variety of buyers, whether as a family home or those seeking a quality 'downsize' in retirement.
The public rooms have a lovely flow, with the drawing room linking to a spacious formal dining room, in turn leading to the kitchen, which is large enough for casual dining and accesses a fantastic room by a wooden flight of stairs, perfect as a crafts room/studio, home office or fourth bedroom ideal for occasional guests, complete with a handy WC and enjoying delightful outlooks to the garden. Both bedrooms are spacious doubles whilst the third, currently adopted as a casual lounge/study, includes a decorative fireplace. To the far end of the reception hall an inner hallway leads to the fully tiled bathroom, which features a claw foot bath, as well as to a very useful rear porch, perfect as a boot room. There is a generous range of storage throughout, the windows are a mix of secondary and double glazing and there is gas central heating.
Properties of this quality are a rarity on the open market; as such we would highly recommend early viewing.
Abbotsford Road is a historically renowned prime location within the central Borders town of Galashiels. The town offers an excellent range of amenities; from major retailers to sporting and leisure facilities, as well as education for all ages. The area as a whole is renowned for its beauty, places of historic interest and the lifestyle it offers and, being only 33 miles from Edinburgh, is a location offering an ideal solution for the commuter, either by car via the A7 or A68 or by train from Galashiels or nearby Tweedbank, which offers free parking. There are also good road links to neighbouring towns such as Selkirk, Hawick, Kelso and St Boswells.
The privacy this stunning property enjoys is quite exceptional. The sweeping driveway winds round and up to the entrance into the house, which fronts onto a large expanse of lawn and trees creating a woodland feel. To one side there is a generous parking area and a gate leading out onto Patterson Street. To the other there is a secluded section, screened by mature hedges. A gate then leads to the further garden which is very child/pet friendly, being fully enclosed for further privacy and security and including a lovely little corner area with a gazebo, perfect for barbecues and summer parties.
