Full description

The picturesque town of Melrose is located between the distinctive Eildon Hills and the world famous River Tweed in the heart of the Scottish Borders.

Melrose is a thriving small market town which includes a wide variety of independent shops, restaurants and hotels, a health centre and professional services plus local and independent primary level schools. The Borders General Hospital,
which provides comprehensive medical facilities for the whole region is less than 1.5 miles away.

The Scottish Borders Railway with a station in nearby Tweedbank provides excellent access by rail to Edinburgh. Both the A68 and A7 trunk roads are within easy reach and provide good road links to the north and south.

Newlyn Road is situated just a few minutes walk above Melrose town centre and is an established residential cul-de-sac of similar sized properties.

Lauriston is situated on the south side of Newlyn Road. It is a period, two storey, semi-detached house built approximately 125 years ago. The house sits in an elevated position from which is has outstanding views over Melrose, Gattonside and the
surrounding countryside.

Lauriston is a handsome house providing flexible family sized accommodation. The house is of traditional stone construction under a pitched slate roof. It maintains many of its original features
including sash and case windows and cornice work. The drawing room at the front of the house boasts a bay window which makes the most of the beautiful
views. The kitchen/breakfast room has been recently modernised to a high standard.

Lauriston further benefits from a large, floored attic accessed by a “Ramsay” style ladder. This area provides an excellent additional storage space with scope for extending the current accommodation.

To the front of the house is a decorative garden and off street parking for at least 3 cars. To the rear of the house is a secluded and sheltered terrace plus an enclosed area laid to lawn surrounded by established trees and borders.
