Melrose Gait in Galashiels is a welcoming new development offering a wide range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes. Galashiels lies in the narrow valley of the Gala Water, close to its meeting with the River Tweed, in the heart of the Scottish Borders. It’s a traditional market town and highly regarded as a tourist destination and a popular place to live.
Melrose Gait’s focal point is a public square, giving the development a sense of space and community. This welcoming family neighbourhood is ideally located for access into Galashiels, which has excellent amenities including shops, supermarkets, restaurants, banks, and sports clubs. There is also good schooling for all ages.
This is a unique development with one-off house styles which have been designed especially for the Scottish Borders area. Although priced to suit your pocket, quality is evident throughout each home and there's a wide range of Finishing Touches available so you can create your perfect living space.
A host of Border towns can be reached from the town’s central location, with the A7 and A68 offering routes to Edinburgh, Carlisle and Newcastle. The stunning coastlines near Berwick-upon-Tweed are only an hour away and provide great family days out. HM The Queen officially opened the new £294m Borders Railway on 9th September.
