Formerly the school for the magnificent Milne Graden Estate, School House has been lovingly renovated throughout to create a beautifully-presented holiday home set high on the banks of the River Tweed.
The stunning interior is the epitome of understated luxury with a predominance of natural wood, quality furnishings and heritage colours. A particular highlight is the magnificent former school room which provides a fabulous, convivial, open-plan living area with a mezzanine level bedroom overhead.
Outside, a lawned seating area to the rear of the property is a perfect spot for breakfast or an evening drink with fabulous views down to the river and not a road in sight. A nearby path leads to the river and a network of superb riverside walks. The river is a haven for wildlife including deer, otter and kingfishers.
Tucked at the end of a private estate road, School House is part of a secluded hamlet of superb properties comprising Hamilton House, Tweedside and Swan's Nest. The properties can be hired collectively for larger groups wishing to holiday together but maintain a degree of privacy.
All Milne Graden properties benefit from use of the Tails of the Tweed Dog Park in the estate’s former Victorian kitchen garden. Sitting on the route of the mapped walks which run around the estate, this bright, sunny spot is a perfect space for relaxation while your furry friend can play and run freely within the safety of this enclosed space. A range of dog agility obstacles and toys are sure to add some extra fun!
News alert! - the garden will be enclosed with a picket fence for safety of children and dogs for the start of the 2020 season.GROUND FLOOR
