Teviotdale Lodge is an impressive period house dating back to the 1930s which sits in over five acres of gardens and grounds on the banks of the River Teviot in Roxburghshire.

Built in the 1930’s, the house was built as a shooting lodge for the Buccleuch Estates, and has since been a country house hotel but more recently a refurbished family home with generous accommodation.

Interconnecting reception rooms include a double drawing room, library, dining room and garden room, while the fitted kitchen has a four-door Aga. The ten bedrooms and seven bathrooms are spread across the first and second floors and include a number of generous suites.

The formal gardens are mostly laid to lawn, while a path leads down to the edge of the river – there are charming rural views and areas of woodland.

Teviotdale Lodge is located six miles from the border town of Hawick and 60 miles from Edinburgh.

The guide price is £775,000. For further information please contact Rettie & Co on 01896 824 070 or visit www.rettie.co.uk.
