The property is a detached, brand-new, one-and-a-half storey bungalow, built to the highest standards, with many quality features designed to enhance family life. Generous room sizes, a multitude of LED downlighters, hardwood laminate floors and hardwood doors combine to give pride of ownership for many years to come. There is an abundance of natural light. Of particular note is the large reception hall leading to a rooflit designer stair with safety glass balustrades. The bright Family Room opens direct via slide-aside glazed doors to the extensive sun deck and garden. Immediately adjoining is a well planned fitted kitchen area with 5 Ring Siemens gas hob matching electric fan oven with grill, microwave, cooker hood, Smeg integrated Fridge and Freezer, dishwasher and automatic washing machine. Two further Double Bedrooms (one of which could be utilised as a Sittingroom, if preferred) are complemented by a contemporary fully tiled shower/w.c. The shower has a power unit and stylish glazed screen and the wash-hand-basin has a useful drawer for toiletries under. There is a window giving natural light. The two exceptionally large Double Bedrooms upstairs are accessed by a broad landing with eaves storage cupboard. This also serves a fully tiled designer Bathroom with rooflight. The Bath features a Grohe power shower fitting and glazed screen and the wash hand basin has useful storage under. There is also a shaver socket. Part-combed ceilings on the upper floor impart a delightful cottage-style ambiance. Year-round comfort is ensured by gas fired central heating, full double glazing and the very latest standard of thermal insulation. Externally there is a good garden to the front of the house with broad sun deck, easy care astroturf “lawn” and a paved driveway for two or three cars. This is accessed by an electric gate operated either by keypad or mobile phone. This combines optimum security with privacy and convenience. The adjoining site is currently the subject of a total Coach House renovation project (we are the selling agents). It will present a stone gable wall in which there are no windows, to the east garden of this property. Full details of the finished property are available from the ESPC website. Expected completion of the build is anticipated in the early Summer of 2018. South Esk Cottage is tucked away close to the heart of Dalkeith, within a short walk of a very wide range of shops, including Morrison’s and Lidl Supermarkets, a large Country Park with Children’s Adventure Playground, Bars, Bistros and Restaurants. A little to the west at Eskbank is found a Tesco Supermarket and Dobbies’ Garden Centre with Food Hall. Not far away at Lasswade is a popular Leisure Centre with pool, also Horse Riding Centre. To the South of Dalkeith is found the King’s 9 hole Golf Course with an 18-hole course not far away at Bonnyrigg. The Royal Infirmary lies some 4 miles to the north. Transport is well-served with a Park-and-Ride at Eskbank Rail Station offering a short rail journey to Edinburgh Waverley. Road access to the City Centre is straightforward. A short drive north of Sheriffhall roundabout connects with the A1 and A7 also the Edinburgh City By-Pass which takes you to the Airport and Central Scottish Motorway Network.
