Tour an impressive million pound architect-designed home outside of Edinburgh
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.
On the market with Christie’s for offers over £1,495,000, the house covers a impressive 8,022 square feet in total and comprises seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, a living room, a drawing room, a large kitchen, formal dining room, gym and games room.
Outside there are landscaped gardens, a patio area, courtyard, woodland, a summerhouse and garage.
The house is accessed via electric gates, which add to the privacy of the grounds.
Features of the property include underfloor heating, vaulted ceilings, astragal windows, cornicing and dual aspect views from upstairs bedrooms.
The heart of the home, the kitchen, is a bespoke creation that boasts bespoke handmade wall display furniture and floor units with granite worktops, a four-oven Aga, Edinburgh sink, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.
Furthermore there is an island, with further storage, a sink and oven. A long glazed open area allows plenty of space for a large dining table and lounging area overlooking the garden.
The kitchen leads into the sitting room, which has views over the back garden and doors onto the patio.
Christie’s describe the layout of this grand property: “the ground floor entrance vestibule leads into a magnificent marble floored reception hall, from which a sweeping oak split staircase extends up to the first floor galleried landing.
“The first floor has a galleried landing with views over the formal gardens and grounds. The dual aspect master bedroom benefits from a dressing room and an en suite bathroom featuring an oval bath, shower and corian basin all integrated in handmade mirrored furniture.
“There is also a guest bedroom with an en suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe, as well as two further bedrooms which share a Jack & Jill bathroom with a shower and spa bath.
“Situated over the western wing is a large gymnasium/bedroom. From the landing, a staircase leads to the second floor. “This has a large, central family/games room and a double bedroom at either end, served by a steam/shower room.”
