This striking period country house with extensive grazing and stabling is situated approximately four miles east of the historic Borders town of Kelso, which lies on the River Tweed.

The area is well provided for in terms of sporting and recreational facilities.

Standing on a sunny, south-facing hillside, with views to the Tweed Valley and the Cheviots, Eden Hall is an imposing family home.

With its turret, ornate cornices and galleried hall, it is a Grade C listed building with excellent communications to the major centres. It is also close to a private airstrip, Berwick rail station and routes to the north and south. With stables and an Olympic size manege, it has been the home of dressage writer and international trainer Sylvia Loch and her family.

The house dates from the late 19th century and the main accommodation consists of: drawing room, dining room, sitting room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, seven bedrooms, three bathrooms, with a special feature of the property being the William Burns hall window.

The largest bedroom (approx 42 square metres) is a former billiard room, with its own kitchen and bathroom. This can also be accessed by a spiral staircase via either the kitchen or rear courtyard.

The West Wing, a beautiful conversion of the servants hall and nursery quarters, with its own entrance from a rear courtyard, comprises large sitting/dining room with views to the south, two bedrooms (one with en suite), kitchen and bathroom. Surrounding the house are approximately 26 acres of land including grazing, stabling, equestrian facilities and woodland.
