Buckholmburn House is an impressive and spacious period family house built in 1853. Despite being close to the town centre, the house is surprisingly private. Constructed of dressed stone under a slate roof it is full of character with high ceilings, cornicing, solid timber floors, working window shutter and period staircase. Other features of particular note are the two main reception rooms and the well-proportioned bedrooms, all accessed from wide landings with modern bathrooms . The main accommodation is on three floors, whilst on the ground floor planning permission has been granted to create a self-contained flat using the two existing bedrooms and bathroom, which will be ideally suited as a 'granny flat' or bed and breakfast accommodation. Planning permission has also been granted to create a large kitchen/breakfast room and an additional wc incorporating the existing snug/office with the kitchen. French windows would lead out on to a timber terrace. The garden at Buckolmburn House extends to approximately 0.93 acres. A partially walled garden includes an area of lawn with a path leading to the terraced beds beneath the south west elevation of the house. A significant part of the “garden” ground is unused.
Buckholmburn House has huge potential. There is enormous scope to create a really impressive and comfortable family home in the central Borders, within commuting distance of Edinburgh. Its proximity to the Borders Railway makes it especially appealing.
Located on the outskirts of Galashiels, Buckholmburn House occupies a prominent position, high above the Gala Water. Galashiels town centre is close by and offers a good range of local shops, super-markets, commercial and leisure facilities, services and schools. The popular town of Melrose is nearby and also has a good range of shops and the well regarded St Mary's preparatory school (prep and pre-prep for boys and girls). Edinburgh, with its international airport, is approximately 31 miles to the north and is easily accessible by road. There is a regular train service from Galashiels (the railway station is close by) to Edinburgh along the re-opened Waverley line, with a journey time of under an hour.
Buckholmburn House is ideally situated for those wishing to take advantage of the wealth of recreational opportunities available in the Scottish Borders, an area renowned for its unspoilt beauty and dramatic landscape. It is an excellent base for those who enjoy walking and cycling, whilst for the golf enthusiast there are courses at Galashiels, Melrose and Selkirk. Some of the finest salmon fishing in Britain is available on the nearby River Tweed. The fantastic Borders countryside provides endless opportunities for those who enjoy walking. The area has a strong equestrian tradition, culminating in the annual Common Riding in support of the “Braw Lad” and the “Braw Lass”.
