Flat 4 is a dual aspect apartment on the first and second floor of Balnakiel House. The house lies on the western fringes of Galashiels and has good access to the A72, the main road leading to the centre of Galashiels as well as west to the Upper Tweed Valley.
The nearby village of Clovenfords (1.9 miles) boasts a village shop, hotel/pub and a primary school. A little further west takes you to Innerleithen and
Peebles and the world renowned cycling tracks at Glentress and Tweed Valley Forest Park.
Galashiels is the commercial centre of the Borders and has a broad range of amenities including major supermarkets, shops, sporting and recreational facilities. The town 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.
Balnakiel House was built in 1869 and the house was sympathetically converted into four apartments in 2007.
Flat 4 is accessed from the impressive communal hall with a feature stained glass window. The property retains many original features including large sash windows with working shutters and decorative cornice and coving on the first floor. The superb apartment is exceptionally bright and spacious and the versatile accommodation extends to approximately 215 square metres.
When Balnakiel House was converted into flats tremendous provision was made for storage. All rooms are fitted with built in cupboards and there is a storage room in the cellar.
The property is approached by an impressive driveway and benefits from residents and visitor parking spaces. The landscaped communal grounds
are relatively level and extend to 0.8 acres.
