Living room

This stylish and spacious two bedroom house in the picturesque Midlothian village of Pathhead offers the best of both worlds; a tranquil semi-rural location along with easy access to the centre of Edinburgh via excellent transport links. It would suit anyone who would like to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital, but still requires to commute into the city on a regular basis.


The current owner purchased the property in 1995 and has made significant improvements and upgrades since then. Originally the home was part of a much larger property, incorporating number 73 as well, but she divided it into two houses. Despite occupying just half its original size, the property feels exceptionally spacious throughout.

The home offers a unique and quirky layout in that it includes a number of different buildings into one. Dating back to the 1850s, the property features original details including sash-and-case windows, which fill all the rooms with natural light.


The sitting room is the current owner’s favourite room and one of the highlights of the property. Boasting an abundance of space, this flexible room currently comprises of both a lounge area and a study. A lovely bright dining room lies next to the sitting room, offering an excellent spot for entertaining guests. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a modern kitchen and a WC.

Upstairs there are two spacious double bedrooms, each providing beautiful views over the surrounding village and countryside, and a family bathroom. The property also benefits from excellent storage space throughout.



A long walled garden stretches from the back of the property to a useful double garage at the end. The garden features a well-maintained lawn and a patio, which is perfect for outdoor drinks and dining during the summer months. The double garage provides excellent additional storage space and off-street parking.
