Property description

** reduced - new asking price**
3 William Law Gardens is a stunning property enjoying arguably the best position within a small sought after development which lies on the western fringes of the central borders town of Galashiels. Appearing fairly unassuming when viewed to the front, it opens out inside to provide a fabulous level of accommodation set over three floors. With quality flooring, doors and fittings, the feel is stylish and contemporary, yet neutral enough to sit well with any tastes, modern or traditional. This is a house absolutely perfect for those with an extended family, or who have regular visitors, as the garden floor forms ideal guest/teenagers accommodation, with two versatile rooms (one of which opens to the patio by sliding doors making it a lovely day/sitting room – the other a potential bedroom), served by a shower room. Equally, for anyone who works from home it would make a great home office area, with a slight sense of separation from the main hustle and bustle of the home. The open plan living/dining room is bright and spacious, with the dining area featuring a Juliette balcony taking advantage of the lovely open views and the living room including a fireplace. The kitchen has a fantastic range of units incorporating appliances as well as a Rangemaster stove and a breakfast bar and the utility room gives access to the garage. All bedrooms are doubles, with the master benefiting from an enviable walk in dressing room and en-suite, and all bathrooms are extremely well appointed. Of particular note is the garden, as the position of the property gives it the advantage of a large flat section to the rear, which includes a large very useable patio. There is also a sloping grassy area and a superb deck at the front. This stunning house is a must see to fully appreciate all it has to offer.


The central Borders town of Galashiels offers an excellent range of amenities; from major retailers to sporting and leisure facilities, as well as education for all ages. The area as a whole is renowned for its beauty, places of historic interest and the lifestyle it offers and, being only 33 miles from Edinburgh, is a location offering an ideal solution for the commuter, either by car via the A7, A72 or A68 or by train from Galashiels; with the nearby station at Tweedbank offering free parking. There are also good road links to neighbouring towns and major employers such as the Borders General Hospital and Scottish Borders Regional HQ for example.


Travelling out of Galashiels towards Peebles, take the last available turning on the left at the end of Wood Street. Follow the road round, keeping to the right and William Law Gardens is straight ahead.
