Property description

94 Halliburton Place is a well presented two-bedroom first floor flat situated in an elevated position overlooking the principal Borders town of Galashiels. Only a short distance from the Borders Railway station which runs to Edinburgh, it has particularly attractive views over Galashiels and beyond.

Externally, the property benefits from a private area of ground to the rear, which is accessed on the same level as the flat, and provides an excellent space to sit out. With shrubs, borders and decking, there is a generous sized garden shed beside the garden, as well as a bin store and access to communal storage on the ground floor. There is also plentiful on-street parking directly outside the flat.

Only a short distance from the town centre, with all amenities close at hand including the aforementioned railway station and transport interchange, the property is situated in a very accessible location with excellent access to Edinburgh and other Border towns via the A7.

94 Halliburton Place is located in the principal Borders town of Galashiels. With a population of 12,000, the town offers a full range of shopping facilities, including Tesco, ASDA, Boots, Next, WH Smith and Marks & Spencer. Local tourist attractions include Old Gala House and Abbotsford House, the former home of Sir Walter Scott, with its award winning visitor centre as well as many other attractions in nearby Melrose and other Border towns.

Among the independent shops there is also a cinema, a health centre, a swimming pool, gym, dentists, orthodontist and a new Transport Interchange built primarily around the new train station in conjunction with the Borders Railway which is a particular bonus.
Local sports teams include Gala RFC, Gala Fairydean FC, and Gala CC and local festivals include the historic Common Ridings held in the summer which is of particular note.
There are also a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area that include fishing on the River Tweed, fieldsports, horse riding, golf, lawn bowling, mountain biking, and a selection of walks including the Southern Upland Way.

Galashiels has six primary schools, and nearby Melrose is home to St Marys Preparatory School with secondary schooling at Galashiels Academy. The Borders College and Heriot Watt University also have a campus in the town, and there are also a number of churches in the area. The Borders General Hospital, the largest hospital in the Scottish Borders is only four or so miles away, on the fringes of Melrose.

Galashiels sits in an easily accessible area and can be reached by the A7 which runs through the town and provides the links to Edinburgh or the north of England. The area is also served by the Borders Railway which recently opened and runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, with the aforementioned station in the town. There is also a busy bus service which runs from the Interchange, beside the railway with links to Newcastle and Carlisle in the South, as well as Edinburgh and the other Border towns.
Edinburgh and Newcastle airports - both international, offer an excellent choice of destinations and are 39.5 miles and 68 miles away respectively.
