Garlyn in on the ground floor of Westwood House. The Victorian mansion is set back off the A72 on Wood Street. The location is a predominantly residential area about 1 mile west of Galashiels town centre.

The town of Galashiels, the commercial capital of the Borders, benefits from a broad range of shops and services including a secondary school, two major supermarkets and a wide variety of recreational and sporting facilities.

The Borders General Hospital and Scottish Borders Council headquarters are both within easy reach and the surrounding countryside, which is noted for its scenic beauty, offers excellent road links with Edinburgh and the north of England. A regular train service runs between Galashiels and Edinburgh.

Garlyn forms part of the ground floor of a period house that has been converted into four spacious apartments. The accommodation is well presented throughout and the well proportioned rooms are bright and spacious. Many period features have been retained including decorative cornice work, wooden shutters, the bay window and high ceilings.

One particular feature of note is the French door leading from the sitting room onto the paved terrace.

A recent upgrade has included installing a stylish fitted kitchen and replacing the bathroom fittings along with redecoration throughout. The wooden shutters have been refurbished and a multi-fuel stove has been installed in the sitting room.

A useful cellar, with a power supply and divided into two rooms is accessed from outside the house and provides ample additional storage.

Previously, full planning consent was granted for the removal of the existing conservatory and the erection of a new 2-bed single storey extension ((15/00469/FUL). The consent lapsed in April 2018 but a new application could be made.

Outside, the apartment is approached by a shared drive to a parking area. The garden is laid out in tiers mostly laid to lawn and there is a paved terrace outside the sitting room. The garden and house is bordered by mature Cypress trees on the north side.

The views are far reaching, to William Law on the west side and Gattonside Heights to the east.
