Secluded countryside living
The Thornton is a wonderful four bedroom detached house with an attached utility space and double garage and would be the perfect location for those who enjoy outdoors. Light floods this home and the underfloor heating throughout the ground floor creates an immediate sense of welcome.
You enter the home through a spacious entrance and hallway on the ground floor which has an open plan living theme with hall, kitchen and diner, and lounge flowing into each other. The kitchen is very spacious, with no shortage of workspace and storage, while French doors lead out to the rear garden which overlooks the golf course. The living room has a wood burning stove and great views to the garden through its large window and glass door.
Also on the ground floors is one of the four double bedrooms with an en suite three piece bathroom, another WC and a utility area which provides access to a double garage.
On the first floor you will find three double bedrooms which each have a dual aspect, while the master bedroom has an en suite five piece bathroom with Vitra fittings and Grohe taps. The first floor also has an open plan study area which provides a quiet, bright space with views over the garden and surrounding woodland.
The Thornton is within the Whitehill Woods development, which is a secluded country estate less than thirty minutes from the centre of Edinburgh. The development is within the grounds of Whitehill House, one of Scotland's great Tudor Jacobean revival houses, designed by the renowned architect William Burn (1789-1870) for Lord Ramsay. This location would be ideal for golf lovers as a golf course is part of the estate. There are a wide range of lovely walks in the estate woods, bike trails and Esk Valley Trail which is close by. There are excellent biking trails both in the estate and in the surrounding countryside, and for those who enjoy horse riding, Thornton Farm stables is close by. Whitehill Woods also provides a secure environment for children to roam free and there are also plans for constructing new tennis courts.
