Nestled in the scenic Scottish Borders countryside, yet a mere fifteen-minute drive from Edinburgh City Bypass, the exclusive Rutherford Gardens development promises a stunning blend of traditional and contemporary design, in a spectacular rural setting.

Designed by award-winning developer RSM Homes Ltd, the property pays homage to the Georgian era with its Palladian-inspired façade, which employs the classic features of symmetry, proportion and perspective. In true Palladian fashion, the grand exterior belies its lavish interior design, intelligent home technology and impressive eco credentials. Extending some 420 sq. metres over three levels, the villa boasts six double bedrooms, four bathrooms, four reception rooms and a superior dining kitchen. The outdoor space is equally impressive, with idyllic landscaped gardens, a secure driveway and a detached double garage.

 The south-facing villa occupies a prime end plot within the niche development and is accessed via automatic driveway gates with a video intercom system. The villa’s classical portico, symmetrical windows and smooth ashlar façade are the epitome of Georgian grandeur, while anthracite window frames add a modern feel. This imposing entrance leads into a light-filled vestibule, whose exquisite porcelain floor tiles are replaced in the reception hall with white-oak engineered boards laid in an elegant herringbone pattern. Here soaring ceilings (with integrated SONOS speakers) and sophisticated décor instantly convey the calibre of the accommodation to follow.

Bathed in natural light from dual-aspect windows to the south and east, and bi-fold doors to the secluded rear patio, the magnificent dining kitchen is a masterpiece in modern kitchen design. Oak-effect porcelain floor tiles and a palette of grey and white hues create a stunning backdrop for everyday family life and entertaining in style. Arranged around a quartz-topped island, the minimalist Milano kitchen is replete with LED under-unit lighting, a Blanco undercounter sink and a full complement of integrated appliances, including a smart induction hob, twin multi-function ovens, a coffee machine and a combination microwave oven by Siemens. The large dining area extends almost seamlessly onto the rear patio via bi-fold doors – perfect for dining al fresco in the warmer months.

In the sumptuous living room to the rear, vast picture windows on two sides frame enchanting garden views, while high-level windows to the west fill the space with warm, evening sun. This formal reception room is supplemented with a more intimate, south-facing sitting room to the front and a versatile playroom/home office directly adjacent. Completing the ground floor is a convenient WC, a media cupboard, a fully-fitted utility room and a boot room.

Upstairs, the spacious first-floor landing accommodates four double bedrooms, two en-suite shower rooms and a four-piece family bathroom, plus the magnificent master suite. With all the space and luxury of a boutique hotel room, the master bedroom boasts a south-facing Juliet balcony, a four-piece bathroom and a fitted dressing room. The glass-balustrade staircase ascends again to the second floor, where you’ll find the sixth double bedroom, a storeroom and a fully-configured cinema room.

An air source heat pump guarantees sustainable heating and hot water and works in conjunction with the solar PV system for increased economy and efficiency. With underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and radiators on the upper levels, the heating, lighting and sound system are all individually controllable via the Niko Home Control app, which enables remote operation from anywhere in the world via tablet or smartphone.

The vast garden grounds are sheltered by mature trees and comprise a sprawling lawn, a rubber-chipped play area and a patio with an elegant water feature. The detached double garage and the monoblock driveway both enjoy electric doors/gates and motion-sensor cameras and lighting. 

RSM Homes Ltd is a housing development company with a difference. Formed by bringing together an award-winning architectural design practice and a luxury property development company, RSM Homes Ltd have identified a gap in the market to create bespoke homes in the most sought-after rural locations. Innovative design which incorporates the latest energy-efficient heating systems and cutting-edge smart home technology are the core objectives to every development we create.
