SITUATIONMulberry House sits on the edge of the exclusive rural settlement of Brothershiels. The area, originally comprising traditional farm buildings, has been sympathetically developed in recent years and now includes a mix of old and new residential properties. Brothershiels is located via a single track road which has been adopted by the local authority. It is about 1.5 miles from the A7 trunk road which provides excellent access, south towards Galashiels and north towards Edinburgh. The nearby village of Heriot boasts a bustling community and a church, village hall and primary School. The area falls into the catchment for Galashiels Academy and is accessible to Lasswade High School. It is also within easy reach of the many private schools in Edinburgh and Loretto School in Musselburgh. There is a good range of local services as well as a train station in Gorebridge (6 miles). A wider range of shops and services, including major supermarkets, can be found in Dalkeith. The popular shopping areas at Straiton and Fort Kinnaird are also within easy reach. Mulberry House enjoys the benefits of the Borders countryside whilst being within comfortable commuting distance of Edinburgh.DESCRIPTIONThe attractive Mulberry house was completed in 2006.
