Selkirk has a population of just under 6,000 and provides a good range of services catering for every day needs including hotels, bars and a wide variety of shops and professional services. Both primary and secondary education is available in the town. A wider range of retail outlets can be accessed in nearby Hawick and Galashiels.
The ease of access to Edinburgh via road, with the bus stop located close by on the A7, and the newly opened Scottish Borders Railway with stations in nearby Tweedbank and Galashiels means Selkirk is also an attractive commuter location.
The Garden Flat forms the lower ground floor of Comely Bank, an attractive period house in Ettrick Terrace. Comley Bank is believed to date from around 1880 and is now converted into 3 flats.
The Garden Flat has a very comfortable feel and the nicely proportioned accommodation could be extended if desired. There is gas central heating .
To the road side of Comely Bank is a shared parking area with one space allocated to The Garden Flat. Steps lead down from the parking area to the entrance of The Garden Flat.
The garden enjoys a good amount of privacy and shelter. It is laid mostly to lawn surrounded by borders which include mature trees and shrubs and a pretty rose bed. Also included is a timber shed and a storage cellar. There is access from the courtyard area on to Old Bridge Road.
The flat and garden has a great outlook over parkland, the Ettrick Valley and beyond to The Yair Hill giving it a degree of peace and tranquillity.
