Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Forming the first and second floors of a handsome Victorian building in the centre of Galashiels, 78 Overhaugh Street is a most characterful period residence with its own private entrance and many charming period features throughout. The property would make a fine family home, or an ideal buy-to-let investment or student let, as it is already fitted with a fire detection system, alarm and emergency lighting throughout, as it has previously been used as an HMO (Houses in Multi Occupation).

Similar to many of the more salubrious properties built in the town in the nineteenth century by wealthy merchants, residences of this type were designed and built to impress anyone who might visit, with a wealth of fine period features including ornate cornicing, high ceilings, original doors, fireplaces and sash and casement windows. 78 Overhaugh Street is a spacious double upper apartment within a handsome period property overlooking the Market Square in Galashiels, with accommodation over the first and second floors.

The property benefits from period features including high ceilings, an ornate staircase and fireplaces and is in a fantastic central position within the town, within easy walking distance to all amenties and the newly opened Borders Railway station, with regular services to the capital.

The property is located in a central position within the town of Galashiels. Situated in the heart of the Scottish Borders, the flourishing town of Galashiels undoubtedly offers the most extensive range of amenities in the area, with an excellent variety of shops, supermarkets, pre-school, primary and secondary schooling, and superb sporting, leisure and recreational facilities. The Heriot-Watt Scottish Borders Campus has a thriving student community, and there is a good selection of restaurants and bars in the town and surrounding area.

Galashiels is easily commutable to Edinburgh via the A7 or A68 trunk roads, and airports are located at Edinburgh and Newcastle. The east coast main line runs from Berwick-upon-Tweed, and the new Borders Railway opened in September providing a direct service to Edinburgh in under one hour. The Scottish Borders is well-known for its stunning scenery and quality of life and there are a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area including fishing on the River Tweed, rough and syndicated shooting, horse riding, golf and a selection of splendid walks including the Southern Upland Way.

Ground Floor: External stairs rise to the front door, into an entrance vestibule with stairs to first floor.
