About the property
**MUST SEE **
This stylish and unique historic home forms part of a breath-taking A-listed Tudor
mansion, incorporating the remains of a 12th century castle.
The spectacular interior architecture, remodelled in a Neo-Gothic style in the early 1800s by renowned architect Robert Burn, (famed for designing some of Scotland’s most exquisite homes and the Nelson Monument on Calton Hill) includes a 75-foot-high Saloon, creating a most impressive communal entrance to the property.
Set on the first floor, you are welcomed into the property by a long hallway with a
wealth of built-in storage, enjoying tasteful, muted décor and sisal carpets, enhanced
by decorative cornicing. To the left, you step into a magnificent dual-aspect, open-plan
living and dining room. Lit by deep recessed sash-and-case windows (with working
shutters) offering unrivalled views over the grounds and countryside, this formal
reception room is filled with magnificent original features including traditional wood panelled window surrounds, dado rail, elegant cornicing and handsome hardwood
flooring. Creating a focal point in the room and a cosy atmosphere during the colder
months, is an ornate original fireplace, fitted with a multi-fuel stove.
On the opposite end of the hall is a southerly-facing breakfasting kitchen offering a range of classic country-styled wood cabinets, framed by wood worktops and tiled splashbacks. The kitchen has been designed to incorporate an impressive Range-style cooker paired
with an extractor hood, a ceramic sink and filter tap, as well as space for a tall fridge
freezer and an undercounter washing machine and dishwasher. A built-in breakfast
bar creates the perfect space for morning coffee.
The apartment houses a spacious and sunny double bedroom; lit by a sash-and-case window offering impressive views, the bedroom boasts generous floor space for freestanding bedroom furniture and an open Edinburgh Press. Completing the stylish country home is a modern bathroom, with luxurious underfloor heating, comprising a shower-over-bath with a glazed screen, a WC-suite, handy linen storage and a heated towel rail.
Externally, this apartment comes with its own private garden with vegetable beds
and a greenhouse, as well as access to approximately 9 acres of magnificent
landscaped garden grounds and further land on a 40-year lease with access to a
river and fishing rights. Private parking is provided by a single garage, and access to
a large shared driveway.
