Roxburgh House is situated on Melrose Road, a popular residential area north east of Galashiels town centre. Galashiels is built in the Gala Water valley and Melrose Road is on the north side giving a tremendous southerly aspect.

Galashiels is a popular town in a fairly central location within the Borders. It has taken on the role of commercial capital of the region and benefits from a broad range of services and shops (including 2 major supermarkets) and a wide variety of recreational and sporting facilities. There are several primary schools and a secondary school within easy reach and part of Heriot Watt University is located in the town.

The Borders General Hospital and Scottish Borders Council headquarters are both easily accessible and the surrounding countryside, which is noted for its scenic beauty, offers superb opportunities for horse riding, walking, cycling and fishing amongst other activities. Galashiels has excellent road links with Edinburgh and the north of England and there is a regular train service between the town and Edinburgh.

Roxburgh House is a handsome and beautifully presented house, originally built as a manse, and dating from the late 1890’s. The generously proportioned rooms retain fine features and finishes. The house sits in a private position within an area of similar type properties. The elevated south facing situation gives views over the town towards Gala Hill.

Roxburgh House is set within excellent, thoughtfully landscaped gardens to both the front and rear. The grounds are bordered by fencing and hedging which provide both privacy and shelter. The front garden has been exceptionally well laid out to provide interest throughout the year.

There are some particularly fine features in the front garden that include a rotating summer house, mature borders, a pergola and a paved terrace.
