This small Scottish estate has some of the best salmon fishing in the country
Elibank is a stunning compact 214 acre estate at the heart of the Scottish Borders. The focal point of the estate is Elibank House, a mid-19th Century seven-bedroom country house with substantial later additions in 1912,. Retaining many of its original features, the house has panelled doors and window shutters, sash and casement windows, decorative open fireplaces, hardwood floors and cornices.
With a fantastic 2½ km beat of salmon and sea trout fishing on the River Tweed, including eight named pools and a 5-year average catch of 62 salmon and 8 sea trout, the Elibank fishings provide both sport for the owner and an income from lettings, if you so desired.
An informal, driven pheasant shoot has seven drives augmented by the presence of two duck flight ponds which can be fed to provide lively sport; roe-deer in the woodland offer the opportunity for year-round stalking in addition.
The permanent pasture on the and on the south side of the River Tweed. has been farmed in hand by the vendors to this point, but has also been let out.
The gardens are particularly attractive in spring and feature colour all round, and natural Scottish Bluebells which, in addition to snowdrops, daffodils and primroses. Eliburn Cottage adjoins the house and can offer additional family accommodation, or be let out to fishing guests.
Set in the heart of the glorious Scottish Borders, the estate is located in a wonderful private setting on the south bank of the Upper River Tweed, just 38 miles from Edinburgh Airport and within commuting distance of Edinburgh city centre.
Elibank is priced at £2m. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 0131 718 4593 or visit www.countrylife.onthemarket.com.
