This imposing Victorian house, situated just 6 miles from the centre of Edinburgh, is ideally appointed to meet the needs of the large extended family or group of friends, offering the possibility of meeting everyone's requirements.
Eskside House is close to all town amenities with sports facilities in the adjacent park for children and adults of all ages. If Edinburgh is the focus for the holiday, then a short drive will take you to the centre of this historic and architecturally impressive city.
However, for those who wish to enjoy the quieter life of the beautiful countryside and beaches to the south and east of Edinburgh, Eskbank is the perfect starting point. In less than 10 minutes you are in the rolling farmland which takes you into the famous Scottish Borders county of Peebleshire.
The area is full of places of interest to explore with castles, historic houses and gardens to visit and, for the golfer, the area is unsurpassed in Scotland -being home to over 20 golf courses within an easy drive.
The house has retained much of its original character with ornate cornices, archways and marble and timber fireplaces yet offers totally modern facilities and amenities. There is a fine billiards room with an antique table.
Outside is a large garden with a patio and decking area ideal for evening barbecues. The garden itself is well maintained and has some fine mature trees which add to the privacy of the house. Enclosed and electronically gated, the gardens are safe for children and there is a double, lockable garage and parking for 8 cars on the car park to the rear of the house.
