The Scottish Borders is supposedly the largest area in the UK without a mainline railway station.
That is about to change. In the autumn of 2015, the reinstated Borders Railway is due to run once again and we are already seeing the railway being a major consideration for sellers and buyers alike.
Part of the remit for supporting the demand for the railway was the provision of more housing stock. This has not materialised on the scale anticipated, so why wait?
If it is a modern home that you are after, with the benefits of a new property, we have a range of homes between £140,000 and £420,000:
Firstly, 3 Waverley Gardens, Darnick, a four-bedroom house in a small development, is at a guide price of £235,000 and is a short walk from the Borders General Hospital.
On the fringes of Galashiels you will find The Willows, in Coopersknowe Crescent, a unique take on a New England home, with extensive decking and immaculately presented internal and external space, at a guide price of £335,000.
In Melrose, opposite the golf cours, lies 5 Scottsdale, offering excellent living space over nearly 3,000 square feet, With five-bedrooms, and three bathrooms, it is at a guide price of £420,000.
If you wish to be right in the heart of Tweedbank , a short walk from the station, 60 The Beeches offers a fabulous five-bedroom home with a double garage and has a guide price of £275,000.
