69 Gala Park comprises a semi detached building in a former Victorian School House in a south facing position and dating back to the late 1800s.

- Fantastic re-development opportunity

- Great property in a central location

- Private rear garden

- Accommodation over four floors


The subjects are located at Gala Park just west of the town centre. Galashiels is generally considered to be the principal administrative, retail and social centre for the region effectively serving a population of in excess of 115,000.

There is a significant student population within the town with campuses of Heriot Watt University and Borders College. Borders General Hospital also has close training ties with a number of the Edinburgh universities.

Within recent years Galashiels has benefitted from considerable public and private investment. Developments have included the Gala Water Retail Park, two supermarkets to the east of the town centre and significant transport infrastructure works including the Galashiels Inner Relief Road.


Internally the property has been standing vacant for some time and would make a fantastic development opportunity for conversion to residential property, Class 2 (Financial, professional and other services) or Sui Generis. It occupies grounds extending to approximately 685 sqm (0.17 acre).

The building is of traditional construction with whinstone elevations and a pitched roof clad in slate. Windows predominantly comprise single glazed sash and case units. Rainwater goods comprise cast iron units.

Garden grounds are enclosed with the main garden area to the rear laid to patio and lawn with mature trees and bushes. There is an electric substation situated within the rear garden and has a right of access. Access to the rear garden is via a public car park.


The property has been measured in accordance with the RICS Code of Measuring Practice to provide the following approximate areas:

Total: 191.75 sq m / 2,064 sq ft
