House Sold - Traquair Peeblesshire
The property is situated on the edge of the village of Traquair, and lies approximately 2 miles south of Innerleithen, which retains a mixture of shops and services, primarily along the High Street. A newly built cycle and footpath links Traquair village to Innerleithen via Traquair Estate allowing easy pedestrian access to the town. The property occupies an elevated position commanding extensive views towards the surrounding hills and forests, primarily to the south, north and west. Traquair village has a village hall and is surrounded by open countryside and forestry, which is highly regarded as a mountain biking and walking destination, with The Southern Upland Way easily accessible a short distance from the house.
The market town of Peebles lies approximately seven miles to the north west and Galashiels approximately twelve miles to the east, both of which retain a more extensive range of services. There is a highly regarded primary school within Innerleithen while older children attend Peebles High School, with transport provided free of charge.
