Sprouston House is a fine example of a substantial nineteenth century stone built family home and retains a wealth of period character and charm whilst offering all the comforts of twenty-first century modern living. In the Victorian era the property was occupied by J.W Inglis, a clothier and hatter who operated his business from the ground floor whilst living above. Successive owners created a large impressive family home and the house is now offered in turn-key condition with spacious living accommodation over three floors with neutral and elegant décor throughout.

Sprouston House is positioned in a mature and sought-after residential locale on the edge of the village with fabulous views of the Eildon Hills and the surrounding countryside. The historic Borders village of Newtown St Boswells sits next to the famous River Tweed and is located a stone’s throw from the A68 between Earlston and St Boswells, having easy access north to Edinburgh and south to Newcastle, and is a delightful traditional Scottish Borders village set at the foot of the Eildon Hills. Day-to-day amenities include local shops, newsagent, a Co-op supermarket, large garden centre with café-restaurant, bank, pharmacy, and community and health centre. Newtown St Boswells has its own Primary School within walking distance, and is set within the well-regarded Earlston High School catchment area. More extensive amenities are to be found in nearby Melrose (3 miles) and Galashiels (6 miles) and the Borders Railway terminus at Tweedbank is approximately 5 miles away, making commuting to Edinburgh within an hour a viable option, and also has good public transport links locally. Surrounded by beautiful Borders countryside the area has much to offer for a quality lifestyle, and there is a vibrant community locally with lots of local clubs and societies and a good range of outdoor activities such as golf, fishing, cycling, walking (St Cuthbert’s Way), and horse riding, to name a few. 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.
