Yester House, Estate of the Day
Yester House, one of Scotland's most expensive properties has been on the market for a while now. The home was built between 1699 and 1728 and is a category 'A' listed house located near the village of Gifford. It sits on around 500 acres and has 14 bedrooms and formal receptions rooms. The home has interiors by William and Robert Adam and include a grand entrance hall and huge ballroom.
An article in the Telegraph last year reported that the estate was commissioned by the 2nd Marquess of Tweeddale in the late 17th century and completed in the 18th century by William Adam and by his son Robert. The home also has huge canvases by William Delacour set in elaborate plasterwork. In the 1970s the home was owned by Italian American composer Gian Carol Menotti. The property also is home to the ruins of the 13th century Yester Castle including the subterranean Goblin Hall, or Ha', written about by Sir Walter Scott in his epic poem Marmion. This property is definitely one for the ages. It has a guide price of £12 million.
