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.

DESCRIPTION
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.
