Spacious family home with a beautiful garden
Would you like to live in a lovely countryside setting, while retaining easy access to the amenities on offer in Edinburgh’s city centre? When choosing where you want to move to, it can be tricky to get the best of both worlds, but not with 10 Ormiston Farm Steadings. Located in the popular West Lothian conservation village of Kirknewton, this five bedroom semi-detached house offers contemporary family living with an enviable outlook over the surrounding countryside, and benefits from excellent transport links to Edinburgh.
The semi-detached steading sits in a peaceful and exclusive courtyard on the outskirts of Kirknewton. Upon entering the property, you are greeted by a useful vestibule followed by a welcoming hallway. The sitting room lies to the right of the hallway, boasting tasteful décor and large windows, ensuring it appears bright and spacious. Complete with a feature fireplace, the room offers ample space for sofas, armchairs and dining furniture, making it an excellent social space.
Boasting chic, fully fitted units and a feature island incorporating a Belfast sink, the large kitchen exudes modernity and style. It also features glass double doors which lead out to the impressive conservatory. Fully glazed, the conservatory is exceptionally spacious, with enough room for a dining table and chairs as well as sofas and armchairs, making it the perfect place to enjoy dinner as a family or a cup of tea in the mornings. It also offers direct access to the extensive garden area, meaning it is the perfect place to entertain guests on summer evenings.
All five bedrooms are situated upstairs on the first floor. The master bedroom is particularly attractive, with lots of space for additional furniture and an en suite shower room. The remaining four bedrooms all benefit from built-in wardrobes. The fifth bedroom is currently used as a study, so this versatile space could be adapted to meet the needs of the new owners. A family bathroom completes the upstairs accommodation, and there is a separate WC located on the ground floor.
The large and beautiful garden is in excellent condition, well maintained by the present owner, offering an excellent place for children to play on sunny days. The property also benefits from a garage and a driveway.
About the area
Kirknewton is a pretty conservation village lying approximately nine miles west of Edinburgh, in West Lothian. It benefits from excellent road and rail links into the city centre but offers the peace and quiet you would expect from a semi-rural setting. Edinburgh Airport, the Gyle shopping centre and the central motorway network are all within a 10-15 minute drive. Kirknewton and neighbouring East Calder offer a wealth of local amenities, including golf courses at Ratho and Dalmahoy, and a sports complex in East Calder. The local primary school has an excellent reputation and the property is within the catchment area of the highly regarded Balerno High School.
If you enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside but want to retain the benefits of living close to the city of Edinburgh, this could be the right home for you.
