Full description

Kingsmeadows House sits within a private estate of over seventeen acres on the banks of the river Tweed. Despite being half a mile from Peebles High Street, residents will not only be able to appreciate the mature woodlands and landscaped gardens but also enjoy the rich abundance of wildlife living on the estate. Whether it’s fish in the crystal clear waters of the river, squirrels, rabbits and pheasants walking across the lawns or even the resident heron, there is something to see from every apartment as well as the grounds themselves. The B listed Georgian mansion house was originally constructed in 1795 for British Baronet and banker Sir John Hay. Although, by 1811 the house had to be extended to accommodate his growing family of 15 children! The estate remained in the family and the house was further expanded in 1855 and 1890. In 1999 Kingsmeadows House was completely renovated by the then owners Standard Life to provide a retreat for staff and conferencing facilities. It was subsequently bought in 2015 by Granton Homes for conversion into twelve luxury apartments.SPECIFICATIONThe twelve apartments spread over four floors range from one to three bedrooms and as no two are alike it’s hard to choose a favourite! Whereas each apartment at Kingsmeadows House is both different in layout and size what all apartments have in common though is the same high specification and attention to detail. The effect is the ideal blend of the functionality and style of high quality contemporary design with the splendour and character of the original period features.
