Yester House

Construction on Yester House began in 1699 and continued well into the 18th century in a series of building phases.

It is now protected as a category A listed building and the grounds of which are also included in the ‘Inventory of Garden and Designed Landscapes in Scotland’, the national listing of significant gardens.

It was the home of the Hay family, later Marquesses of Tweeddale, from the 15th century, was then purchased by two antiques dealers who promptly sold to world-renowned Italian composer Gian Carlo Menotti in 1972. Menotti was a very influential composer of his time whose operas are still hugely enjoyed today.

In 2014 the current owners, Garreth and Nicola Wood, along with their two young children purchased Yester House. For four years they have carefully restored Yester House and its surrounding gardens, giving it a welcoming breath of fresh air. This is a home that they hope to enjoy with family and friends for many years to come.
