Queensberry release last three detached villas at prestigious Peebles development.

Following a wave of sales since its opening, Queensberry Properties has released the last three luxury detached villas for sale at its prestigious Hydro Gardens development at Peebles in the Scottish Borders.


Hydro Gardens is a unique development of exceptional new homes, set within the beautiful grounds of the famous Peebles Hydro Hotel and has been designed to be totally in keeping with its stunning surroundings. All properties at Hydro Gardens have been designed exclusively for the development.

Located in one of the most sought-after parts of Peebles and enjoying a raised position overlooking the expansive Gytes playing fields, all the detached properties at Hydro Gardens command beautiful views that take in the lush Tweeddale countryside and the Southern Uplands beyond.

Set in landscaped grounds that mirror the surrounding countryside and the wooded gardens of the neighbouring Hydro Hotel, the elegant homes that make up this exceptional new community are carefully positioned along a central driveway to create a refined and welcoming layout that gives Hydro Gardens a real sense of place.

When completed, the development will comprise eight magnificent four and five-bedroom detached villas in three different styles, all facing onto Innerleithen Road and the playing fields beyond. In addition there will be five five-bedroom mews and semi-detached villas set around a central green as well as sixteen one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

In addition to the final three newly released detached four and five-bedroom villas, there is also one two-bedroom apartment, one three-bedroom apartment, one Caddon semi-detached five bedroom villa and a five-bedroom Teviot style detached villa from an earlier release.

Simply, opportunities to secure a prestigious property in such an enviable location simply don’t happen very often in Scotland. In keeping with all Queensberry Properties’ residential projects, this is a truly inspiring development located in a breathtaking setting and offers a broad selection of prestigious properties for sale that has widened the development’s appeal to a range of buyers”.
