The Rectory occupies an excellent residential location on the west side of Parsonage Road, a popular and peaceful cul-de-sac close to the southern edge of Galashiels.

The Rectory is within comfortable walking distance of the town centre and enjoys tremendous outlooks over Galashiels and beyond to the surrounding countryside.

Galashiels is the commercial centre of the Borders and has a broad range of amenities including major
supermarkets, shops, sporting and recreational facilities. Both St Peter’s Primary School and Galashiels Academy are within walking distance.

The Rectory is within easy reach of the Borders General Hospital and Scottish Borders Council’s Headquarters and has good road links with the other main Borders towns, Edinburgh and the north of England. A regular train service runs between Galashiels and Edinburgh.

The Rectory was built in approximately 1880 as the manse for the nearby St Peter’s Episcopal Church
as has been used as such ever since. The semi-detached period property benefits from many original Victorian features including high ceilings and an impressive staircase.

On the ground floor the accommodation offers adaptable accommodation. The drawing room at the front of the house currently provides a more formal room for entertaining. Towards the back of the house the dining room, currently used as a living room provides a useful and versatile space. A door leads off the back hall into the rear garden.
On the first floor the rooms are spacious. Two of the rooms are dual aspect thus allowing tremendous views over the countryside.

The Rectory benefits from a decent amount of storage on both ground and first floors. There is scope to modernise the current accommodation.

The Rectory sits in attractive and mature landscaped gardens. The front garden comprises a lawn and
spacious parking. The back garden is mostly enclosed. A decked terrace (in need of repair) provides a private and sheltered sun trap. The garden is relatively low maintenance and could be further landscaped.
