Upper Craigpark House is situated between Craigpark Gardens and Barr Road on the Southern Upland Way, in a peaceful residential area where traditional houses rarely come on the market.

Galashiels lies very much in the heart of the Borders region and benefits from a broad range of services and shops (including two major 24 hour supermarkets) and a wide variety of recreational and sporting facilities including cinema, swimming pool and gyms. There are two primary schools and a secondary school (Galashiels Academy) within walking distance of the property and part of the Heriot Watt University is also 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 fishing on the famous River Tweed, walking, mountain biking, cycling and horse riding amongst other activities. Galashiels also has excellent road links with Edinburgh and the north of England and there are regular train and bus services between the town and Edinburgh.

Upper Craigpark House forms the upper two floors of an attractive Victorian villa. The property has been extensively modernised and upgraded and retains a number of original features including panelled doors, cornicing, working shutters and interesting “William Morris style” decorative stained glass windows. The family sized accommodation is well presented throughout and enjoys fine outlooks over the town and surrounding countryside. The house benefits from a large double attic with a window at each end which may be suitable for conversion subject to the usual planning constraints.

Outside, the house is approached by a shared drive with off street parking. There is a useful storage shed with an enclosed paved patio which provides a pleasant spot for al fresco dining. A further area of garden is laid to lawn and surrounded by conifers and a decorative border.

The accommodation includes;

FIRST FLOOR: Entrance porch/sunroom, hall/dining room, kitchen/dining room, drawing room, bedroom 1, study/bedroom 2 with balcony off, family bathroom.

SECOND FLOOR: 2 double bedrooms, single bedroom/study, shower room.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS: Storage shed with enclosed paved patio. Enclosed garden laid to lawn. Shared drive with private off street parking.
