Description

Modern family house in peaceful conservation village in Scottish Borders

Location

The village of Midlem lies to the south of Melrose and the triple peaks of Eildon Hill, renowned for the enormous Roman fort which was built in its shadow and from which Trimontium View takes its name. The village has conservation status and lies in the rolling countryside of Roxburghshire and also has far reaching views to Cheviot in Northumberland.

The property is conveniently situated for the local Borders towns of Selkirk, Melrose and Galashiels. These are vibrant towns with a good range of shops and local services. The area in general is also well served for outdoor pursuits including horse riding, shooting, fishing, golf, walking and mountain biking. The catchment primary school is a short distance away at the nearby village of Lilliesleaf which provides a school taxi bus to outlying areas. Secondary schooling is available in Selkirk and St Mary's Preparatory School is located in Melrose. The Borders General Hospital is a large employer for the area and is located to the southwest of Melrose. The area is now linked to Edinburgh by the Borders Railway with the nearby stations in Galashiels and Tweedbank offering a regular commuter service to Edinburgh, with trains departing every half hour. Edinburgh, which is renowned for its cultural festivals offers a comprehensive selection of private schools, shops and services including an international airport.

Description

Trimontium View was built in 2007. The layout is spacious and the accommodation versatile. The open plan living area has a large kitchen area with superb worktop space and plenty of storage, supplemented by the adjacent utility room. There is space for a dining table as well as a large sitting area. A sitting room lies across the hall. This is a stunning room flooded with natural light. A ground floor bedroom is served by the adjacent shower room. This bedroom could easily be used as an additional sitting room or playroom. There is also a room which was originally designed to be an office but has been used as a single bedroom in the past.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms in all. The master bedroom is particularly spacious and has beautiful views. It has a shower room en suite which also has a Jack and Jill door to the hall. The other three bedrooms are all of a good size and there is a family bathroom which has been refurbished in part. There is a useful cupboard providing good linen storage.

Outside, the garden surrounds the house. It is lawned to the south and around the embankment has been left as a wildlife and flower meadow in the summer. There is an outside dining area to the rear of the house. The garden is enclosed within a post and rail fence and has a gated driveway to the gravel parking area.
