This well-proportioned stone-built cottage forms part of an 18th century farm steading which was converted in 2000. The property is situated within a lovely rural setting less than 7 miles south of the Edinburgh's city centre. There are excellent local amenities a short drive away with a choice of supermarkets at Straiton and a Marks & Spencer Food store as well as many high street stores and restaurants. Leisure facilities include several golf courses and driving ranges, Hillend Ski Centre, livery facilities and walks in the Pentland Hills. There is a bus link to town 2 minutes walk from the property as well as are several bus services from Hillend and there is a park and ride at Straiton giving easy access to the city. The City Bypass, leading to the motorway network and to Edinburgh International Airport, is within a few minutes' drive. The Edinburgh University Easter Bush Campus is within 5 minutes drive.
The sympathetic conversion has created a charming and spacious family home with attractive traditional features. The accommodation is beautifully presented and comprises a vestibule leading into the hall and in turn to the rear hall. Off the hall there is a utility room which is a very useful complement to the main kitchen with an additional hob, a sink and space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer together with excellent storage space. There is also a fully tiled w.c. The hall then leads to the main accommodation starting with the airy kitchen leading to the dining/family room. The kitchen has contemporary free-standing units, a solid fuel Rayburn, built in dishwasher and solid wood flooring. The dining area leads to a cosy family room with a wood burning stove and patio doors to the rear garden. This room is flooded with natural light with windows on all sides and velux windows in the roof.
Next to the kitchen there is a spacious lounge with an open beamed ceiling and a large multifuel burner. There are full length feature windows overlooking the rear garden giving plenty of natural light. Adjacent to this there is an internal hall leading to three double bedrooms and a family bathroom as well as a walk in storage room (or small boxroom?). The bathroom is fitted with a modern 3-piece suite including a jacuzzi spa bath with rain shower over and has a ceramic tiled floor and contemporary fittings. The master bedroom has a double glazed door to the deck which leads to the self-contained sauna. There is also an ensuite bathroom fitted with a white 3-piece suite and electric shower. Whilst bedroom 2 is currently used as an office there is a built-in pull-down double bed.
Upstairs there is a bright spacious double bedroom with a balcony overlooking the garden and with views of Arthur Seat and the Pentland Hills. The room benefits from a raised bed space.
The beautifully maintained gardens are well stocked with mature plants, shrubs and fruit bushes. There are several garden stores.
The steading is built round a well maintained communal green with ample parking space adjacent to it.
