Set on the banks of the River Tweed and in some 17 acres of landscaped grounds, Kingsmeadows House promises the inimitable elegance and grandeur of a period home, with all the convenience and luxury of contemporary living. Constructed circa 1795, the B-listed Georgian mansion has evolved from a private family home to an emergency maternity hospital during the Second World War and then a record depository in the ensuing Cold War, before latterly being converted into 12 unique apartments in 2016. Residents of the exclusive Kingsmeadows Country Estate have unfettered access to vast parkland and woodland, all set against the scenic Scottish Borders landscape, yet are a mere half a mile from the bustling town centre of Peebles. Residents further benefit from the services of a factor, as well as ample parking and a private, secure store on the lower ground floor.

Kingsmeadows House is approached along a tree-lined driveway leading to a residents’ parking area, and from here a flight of stone steps leads up to the impressive main entrance. Here, double storm doors open into a light-filled vestibule, followed by an oval entrance hall with an exquisite coved ceiling and hexagonal stone flags. This in turn flows into the breathtaking parquet-floored stairwell, which features a stunning cast iron and rosewood cantilevered staircase curving gracefully up to the first floor. Welcoming you into Apartment 9 is a long hall, at the end of which is the open-plan kitchen and living/dining room. Splendid sash windows to the south and east fill the room with morning and afternoon sun, and frame leafy views across the sprawling garden grounds. Perfect for everyday life and relaxed entertaining, the living/dining area offers flexible scope for various configurations and enjoys a comfortable separation from kitchen, without losing the desirable open-plan feel. Partially enclosed by an oak-topped breakfast peninsula, the matte-grey handleless kitchen by Kitchens International conceals a wealth of storage and workspace, and houses a full complement of integrated Siemens appliances.

Both double bedrooms enjoy outstanding proportions and an enviable southerly aspect with magnificent garden views. The largest bedroom is currently used as a formal sitting room and has retained an original marble fireplace surround boasting Greek friezes with contrasting marble inlay. Completing the accommodation is the luxurious shower room, which features a flush-mounted rainfall shower within a walk-in compartment. Reproduction double-glazed sash windows and gas central heating ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.

Extras: All fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings and integrated appliances to be included in the sale.

Factor: Kingsmeadows House Country Estate is managed by James Gibb for an approximate monthly fee of £150 per apartment, which includes buildings insurance, communal cleaning and maintenance, and grounds landscaping.
