If money is no object and you’ve always dreamed of an impressive, sprawling stately home, then take a look at Romanach House in Inveresk Village Midlothian.

Designed by David Waugh of the Edinburgh architectural firm Sir Frank Mehers & Partners, Romanach is a contemporary home that draws on Dutch influences that can be seen elsewhere in the nearby Inveresk Village.

While it has various hallmarks of a traditional property, Romanach House benefits from all the advantages of a recently built home.
