Built in 1802, The Mill House enjoys a commanding position in a beautiful and picturesque riverside setting on the banks of the River Tweed.
This grade B listed house, of great character and charm, is a converted former watermill with accommodation on three floors. Nearly all of the rooms have a river view over the delightful Scottish Borders countryside, and the house is conveniently located for shopping in the pretty Borders town of Peebles.
A large, family dining kitchen (seats 10) forms the heart of the house with French doors overlooking the river.
The Mill House makes an excellent home for a family with children. The grounds are child friendly with a large playing field, in full view of the patio and terrace. The garden is fenced and there is a large driveway which can hold multiple cars and a free standing garage.
If you just want to relax, then enjoy lying on a lounger on the sun terrace and watch the river go by, the tranquillity broken only by the sound of leaping salmon and trout. There is an abundance of wildlife, including herons, ducks, kingfishers and otters.
