A period country house
Set within approximately one and a half acres of garden grounds, Greenfield Lodge is located off a private lane in the semi-rural conservation village of Lasswade. The property has a very interesting layout, with many rooms that lead through to one another over its two floors.
Greenfield Lodge makes an instant impression with its elegant and spacious entrance vestibule and reception hall with its tiled floor, cupola and sweeping staircase, which has a cloakroom/WC underneath. The hall leads to a bright bay-windowed drawing room with alcove, dual aspect windows, original open fireplace and access to the rear garden. The bow-ended dining room with fireplace leads into the modern fitted kitchen with stylish workspace and an Aga. The kitchen flows through to a garden room with large cupola that really allows the light to flood into this space. A door leads out to the patio area and back garden, and also to a comfortable sitting with a gas fire.
The kitchen also has a utility room off it and this has access to the garden, a box room, also with access to the garden, and then continues through to a study. Also on this floor is the guest suite with bedroom, bathroom and cupboard. The staircase leads up to the upper landing where you will find the sleeping accommodation as well as a pool room. The master bedroom has a bow-ended window and en suite bathroom, and there are further good-sized bedrooms and a family shower room.
The extensive garden features formal lawns, rhododendrons, shrub and herbaceous borders, woodland paths, fruit and vegetable allotments, two ponds and a former 19th century bowling green. Wrought iron gates provide access to a spacious driveway and turning area allowing parking for several cars, as well as a single car garage. The home also has access to the old pathway leading from the Parish church to old Lasswade.
Lasswade is a sought-after picturesque village which is extremely popular with commuters thanks to its stunning location and close proximity to Edinburgh city centre and bypass. There is a good range of local shops and services nearby with a more varied range of amenities found in Bonnyrigg and Loanhead. More extensive shopping is also available at Straiton Retail Park.
There is a range of recreational facilities in the vicinity including Edinburgh and Lasswade Riding Centre and a leisure centre with a children’s pool. Kings Acre, Broomieknowe and Melville golf courses are within easy reach and the nearby Pentland Hills offer further outdoor pursuits including the Midlothian Snow Sports Centre at Hillend. Regular buses run to and from the city centre and surrounding areas, with the newly opened Borders railway line at Eskbank only five minutes’ drive away. The City Bypass is easily reached by car providing links to the main motorway network, Edinburgh Airport and The Forth Road Bridge. Schooling is easily accessible in both the primary and secondary sectors.
