18 Windyknowe Road is a beautifully presented and very spacious detached villa set in mature garden grounds, with an integral garage and driveway, situated in a sought-after and extremely popular residential locale in Galashiels. The property has been very well maintained by the current owner and has elegant neutral décor throughout, contemporary and stylish kitchen and bathroom and has double glazing and gas central heating. This stunning family home also boasts far-reaching views over the town and surrounding countryside. Galashiels also benefits from the newly opened Borders Railway, providing regular commuter services into Edinburgh.

This beautifully presented property is a detached family home built in the mid nineteen seventies. Houses built in this era are generally sought-after by buyers because the developers were more generous with room sizes throughout the properties and 18 Windyknowe Road is no exception. The current owner has maintained the property to an excellent standard and the interior is immaculate, with stylish contemporary design and elegant décor, the house has a modern, comfortable and welcoming feel and a new owner would be able to move straight in without any work to do. The property was thoughtfully designed to make the most of its elevated position, with the living accommodation on the first floor enabling you to enjoy the spectacular views whilst cooking in the kitchen or entertaining in the living space. The bedrooms are all located on the lower floor, a peaceful and quiet position with three of the four bedrooms to the rear of the house looking on to the pretty garden.

Accommodation Comprises:

Spacious Entrance Hall, Sitting Room with Dining Area, contemporary fitted Kitchen, Cloak Room, Three Double Bedrooms, Single Bedroom and contemporary Bathroom.

External: Enclosed landscaped rear garden, landscaped gardens to front with large decked area, driveway with off-street parking and integral garage.

The property is well positioned on an elevated plot, in a sought-after and mature residential area of Galashiels, popular with families, young professionals and retirees and is within easy walking distance to the centre of town. Situated in the heart of the Scottish Borders, the historic and bustling town Galashiels offers an extensive range of amenities, with an excellent variety of shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, pre-school, primary and secondary schooling, and superb sporting, leisure and recreational facilities. The Heriot-Watt Scottish Borders Campus in Galashiels has a thriving student community. 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 which opened in September 2015 provides a direct service to Edinburgh in approximately 1 hour from Galashiels and nearby Tweedbank. The Scottish Borders offers a quality of life that is second to none and in an area of 1800 square miles there is certainly plenty of space to enjoy our beautiful unspoilt countryside and individual towns. Home to world class activities and attractions, it’s no wonder that the area is so popular with visitors who come here to enjoy mountain biking at Glentress, salmon fishing on the Tweed, walking in our hills and forests or diving off the Berwickshire coast. The area is also known for its’ spectacular Common Ridings, when whole communities come together to celebrate each town’s individual heritage and to cheer on hundreds of horses and riders every summer. The Borders is also a heartland of rugby in Scotland, with the names of our local towns being synonymous with the game and of course Melrose being the original home of rugby sevens. From our historic towns to rural villages, wherever you go you will be struck by the warmth of the welcome in our communities and the real pride people have in living in this wonderful part of the world. With good transport links, including the newly opened Borders Railway with regular services to Edinburgh, an excellent education system and stunning countryside, a move to the Scottish Borders really could be the best move of your life.
