SITUATIONEarlston Reading Room has a very central location within the town and the building has a southerly aspect to the front. Earlston is a popular small Borders town with a good range of amenities including shops, inns, a well regarded high school and a primary school. The countryside around Earlston is noted for its scenic beauty and other nearby Borders towns provide a wide range of recreational and sporting facilities. Earlston straddles the A68, which provides good vehicular access both north to Edinburgh and south to the northeast of England. In addition, the Tweedbank Terminal for the Borders Railway, with its regular train service to Edinburgh, lies within easy reach.DESCRIPTIONEarlston Reading Room is a handsome, traditional mid-terraced building which dates from the 19th Century and served as the town’s reading room from 1852 until the 1970s. Whilst the building has more recently been used as a store it has now fallen in to a fairly poor state of repair and requires refurbishment. The building appears suitable for a variety of uses - both residential and commercial - subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.
