A Victorian family villa
Situated on the outskirts of Jedburgh, this fantastic converted 19th century convent offers panoramic views over the town and countryside while maintaining a stylish, high quality finish.
The historic Scottish Borders town of Jedburgh benefits from a variety of independent shops and restaurants as well as providing a selection of primary and secondary schools to choose from. Only a few minutes’ walk from the high street, Eden House has everything on its doorstep.
Having last been purchased in 1998, this six bedroom property has since experienced a significant upgrade with the kitchen, bathroom, utility and driveway all benefiting. The modernisation of the house provides a contemporary interior while the character, integrity and period features have been maintained. The home is in immaculate condition and is ready to move into, making it ideal for a range of buyers.
Even larger than it looks at first sight, Eden House’s accommodation is configured over three floors and can be entered through a charming Victorian tiled vestibule. Upon entering the property, either side of the main hall are four reception rooms, two of which are beautifully proportioned with bay windows overlooking the front garden. The sitting/family room benefits from a wood-burning stove and remains open-planned to an impressive rear facing kitchen.
Spacious and inviting, this property maintains a light interior with original windows allowing the house to maximise the natural sunlight. The elevated position of the property helps provide unique, unrivalled views and with both the drawing room and dining room positioned at the front of the house, they best experience the stunning views and exceptional levels of light.
The first floor showcases four bedrooms each wonderfully grand in their proportions. The master bedroom provides excellent floor space and a wonderful bay window, synonymous with the Victorian build while the further three bedrooms are all generous doubles showcasing traditional features. The third bedroom benefits from an en suit shower room. Moreover, perhaps the most impressive room located on the first floor is the family bathroom. Luxuriously finished, the bathroom is fully fitted with an enamel bath, a freestanding pressure shower, monochrome floor tiling and highly desired under floor heating.
The staircase continues to a cleverly designed converted attic space showcasing a further two double bedrooms both benefiting from Velux windows capturing the views on offer to the property. The attic space would also lend itself well as a hobby or work space, with excellent in-built storage.
Externally the property has a good sized garden, proportionate to the size of the house. The current layout of the garden provides privacy with a pleasant seating area located directly through the kitchen. A footpath from the front lawn cuts further down Lanton road, perfect for quick access into the town. The garden also offers a useful stone built outhouse, greenhouse, wood store, and driveway with parking, enough for several cars.
