Traditional house with superb modern extension, exceptional gardens and views across the Tweed Valley to the Peeblesshire hills
Eshiels House is situated in beautiful countryside, approximately 2 miles to the east of Peebles. Peeblesshire is one of the most scenic and accessible parts of the Borders combining hills, farmland and woodlands.The area has particularly fine forestry, with the Royal Botanic Garden at nearby Dawyck being noted for its magnificent trees and shrubs. The attractive town of Peebles offers excellent local services with shops, professional services and supermarkets. It also has a secondary school.
While Eshiels House enjoys a wonderful rural position, it is extremely accessible. Edinburgh is only 24.5 miles to the north and Glasgow 54 miles to the northwest. Edinburgh Airport has an increasing number of domestic and international flights and is 28 miles away.
The area is renowned for its outdoor activities. There are golf courses at Innerleithen, Peebles and Cardrona. The Peebles Hydro, Cardrona Hotel and Stobo Castle all offer good leisure facilities and Glentress Forest is a fabulous facility for mountain bikers. The River Tweed is also on the doorstep and offers many beautiful walks and of course superb salmon fishing.
Eshiels House dates back to the 17th century but now has a superb blend of modern open plan living in conjunction with more traditional accommodation, all arranged over two floors. The outlook from the house over the surrounding countryside is stunning and there are many traditional features which have been retained within the house. Externally the house has a traditional appearance and is built in stone along with a turret and crow stepped gables. Two modern extensions are also finished in stone. The accommodation throughout is beautifully presented and well proportioned.
The front door to the house is located at the base of the turret which is circled by rose bushes and opens into a rounded vestibule with tiled floor. The main hallway is ahead and provides access to the first floor and is centrally located within the property. Extending to the south is the more traditional accommodation with a drawing room situated at the end with fabulous views over the garden and up to the hills. The room is triple aspect and there is an open fireplace as well as French doors to the garden. The dining room sits adjacent and also has French doors to the garden.
The kitchen / family room is a recent extension and is a bright space thanks to the sliding glazed doors which face south and west. The kitchen itself has an island with breakfast bar and is equipped with granite work tops. Appliances include a gas hob, Fischer and Paykel dishwasher, electric oven with separate grill and American style fridge / freezer. To the other end of the room is a sitting area with TV unit and wood burning stove. Between the two areas is a generous dining space and a door through to the conservatory which faces south over the garden.
The ground floor accommodation is completed by a separate family room and utility room which gives internal access to the double garage and has a WC located off.
The first floor has a generous landing and has two bedroom wings to the south and running east to west. The east wing has the principal bedroom suite which is double aspect and has a dressing room and spacious en suite shower room with twin wash basins, walk in shower and WC. The principal bedroom faces south and enjoys views over the garden and rolling countryside beyond. There is a second bedroom with en suite shower room and a further three double bedrooms which share two very generous family bathrooms, each of which has a shower. Also off the landing is a large store room housing the boilers and hot water tank as well as a home office which is located in the turret.
The gardens which surround Eshiels House have been beautifully kept and crafted over the last few decades by the current owners. To the south is a large lawn which is bordered by well stocked and colourful flower beds with a variety of different plants and shrubs providing an array of colour. Closer to the kitchen is another lawn where there is a dining patio, raised beds and pond. The gardens continue around to the back of the house and to the front is a spacious driveway with parking for several cars with direct access to the double garage.
