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. A pair of stone gateposts on Kingsmeadows Road marks the entrance to the estate and from here the tree-lined driveway leads through mature grounds and up to the simply breathtaking Georgian mansion. Apartment 5 is positioned on the lower ground floor and can therefore be accessed both from the grand main entrance and externally via a patio door to the southern elevation. Welcoming you into the apartment is a bright vestibule, whose rich oak flooring and neutral decor instantly set the classic-contemporary tone for the accommodation to follow. Directly ahead is the open-plan kitchen and living/dining room. Triple-aspect windows flood the space with all-day sun and yield enchanting views of the garden grounds. The designer kitchen by Kitchens International is tucked into the far corner of the room and features an array of handleless cabinets paired with solid oak worktops, plus a host of Siemens integrated appliances. The apartment boasts a large double bedroom and a generous single bedroom, plus a sumptuous three-piece bathroom with a flush-mounted rainfall shower.
