A home by the Braid hills
31 Pentland Terrace sits on an elevated position with excellent views over the Braid Burn. The entrance vestibule leads into a welcoming hallway with three large storage cupboards, and with access to all the rooms, including the four bedrooms, the dining room, kitchen and living room. The kitchen is an attractive, contemporary space with plenty of storage and space for cooking and preparing food.
Hannah Knock is the daughter of the owners and has had many happy years growing up in the home. “You see some beautiful sunsets from the front rooms and can usually see the New Year’s fireworks from the back rooms,” she says. “The living room is spacious, but also very cosy and comfortable. It’s a great room for socialising with friends and family. The bay window is the perfect spot for the yearly Christmas tree, and offers amazing views all year round. The dining room is lovely too, with room for a table as well as another seating area with a sofa and coffee table.”
The home also has a very private garden which is great for sitting out on sunny days, and there is also a decking area with a pond, where you can observe some of the wildlife. A sweeping driveway to the front of the house leads to the garage.
Hannah adds: “There are opportunities for walks on the Braid hills behind the house and there is also a park to the front of the house, where the Friends group hold a family fun day every year, which is great if you have kids.”
