2a Railway Court is a well appointed two bedroom apartment presented over two floors, forming the upper level of a charming sandstone period property which has been thoughtfully restored and modernised, and is centrally positioned within the village of Newtown St Boswells. The property is in walk-in condition and would make an excellent first time purchase or well considered rental investment.
The popular Borders village is ideally set within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh, and rests nestled just below the Eildon Hills, close to Melrose and within easy reach of further Borders towns. The Scottish Borders Council Headquarters are just a short walk, as well as a variety of local shops and facilities, with larger supermarkets at Galashiels some six miles distant. Newtown St Boswells has a well regarded Nursery and Primary School, Health Centre, and falls in the local catchment for Earlston High School. The area is surrounded by beautiful countryside and perfect for the keen walker or cyclist, with nearby sporting facilities such as golf, tennis, horse riding and fishing. The property is placed towards the outer edge of the village, just off the A68, and the Border Railway is a convenient 10 minutes from the property.
External steps lead from the courtyard and resident's parking area to the main entrance; opening to a spacious and bright hallway with further doors to the living room, bathroom and kitchen, with a carpeted staircase providing access to the upper accommodation. The living room is generously proportioned with neutral décor and pleasant dual aspect with window overlooking the courtyard below. There is ample space for freestanding furnishings with TV aerial connection point. The neighbouring bathroom is fitted with white bath with tiled panelling, W/C and washhand basin, with electric shower over bath, glazed shower screen and tiled splashbacks.
