Standing on a sunny, south-facing hillside with views to the Tweed Valley and the Cheviots, Eden Hall is an imposing family home. With its turret, ornate cornices and galleried hall, it is a Grade C listed building with excellent communications to the major centres. It is also close to a private airstrip, Berwick rail station and routes to the north and south. With stables and an Olympic size manege, it has been the home of dressage writer and international trainer Sylvia Loch and her family. The house dates from the late 19th Century and the main
accommodation consists of a ground floor and upper storey approached by an elegant staircase – a special feature being the William Burns hall window.
