A magnificent country house set in rolling parkland between Kelso and Jedburgh, Crailing House provides an outstanding setting for memorable family get-togethers and sporting lets.
The house has been meticulously renovated throughout, the serene Regency exterior belying the striking interior; a seamless fusion of contemporary and antique items. Fabulous life-size bronzes, quirky objets d'art and an impressive selection of original artwork sit alongside original features sensitively restored to preserve the character of the house. The beautifully proportioned, light-filled rooms offer fantastic entertaining space for house parties and with daily housekeeping included and the optional services of a cook and butler, Crailing House provides the quality and comforts of a five-star boutique for private house parties at a fraction of the cost.
The sleek, contemporary kitchen is the convivial heart of the house, extensively equipped with all the latest high-tech kitchen wizardry. There's a breakfast bar for casual dining, a contemporary, recessed log burner for additional winter warmth and a state-of-the-art Everhot range oven. At one end, an oval dining table seating 12 sits in the elegant curve of the house graced by a striking antique chandelier overhead.
The impressive drawing room is incredibly light and spacious with three fabulous ceiling height windows and a log fire for winter evenings. A cosy study provides a quiet spot for catching up with a few emails and a second sitting room with log burner provides a comfy spot to read or watch films. If preferred, the study can also be transformed into a very atmospheric dining room with round dining table for 12 guests.LOWER GROUND FLOOR
