Pilmuir House comprises an exceptionally well-presented and generously proportioned 4 bedroom detached villa circa 1930's with driveway, detached garage and private garden ground to the front and rear of the property.

Balerno is a popular and quiet semi rural residential area which lies a few miles south west of the city centre. Nearby walkways, cycle paths and regular buses take you to the city centre. There are excellent local shopping facilities including post office, farmers market and pub restaurants with further amenities in nearby Currie and Juniper Green including medical services. The extensive Hermiston Gait and Gyle Shopping Centres are just a short drive away. The Pentland Hills are also on the doorstep, perfect for outdoor pursuits including walking, mountain biking and horse riding, and there is excellent fishing at Harlaw and Threipmuir reservoirs. Currie Rugby Club can be found in Balerno itself and a championship golf course, leisure club and spa facilities are found at Dalmahoy Marriott Hotel & Country Club beside nearby Kirknewton. Access to the Edinburgh city bypass is within easy reach which in turn gives access to all major trunk routes to the north, south, Edinburgh International Airport, Forth Road Bridge and Glasgow. Schooling in the state and private sectors is well represented in the area.
