This most appealing extended traditional stone built, slate roofed, two storey cottage is set in superb established gardens in the village of Balerno, on the periphery of Edinburgh, eight miles south west of the city centre. Looking across to The Pentlands, the cottage is in pristine condition and the attractively decorated accommodation, on two floors, comprises a semi timbered/semi glazed porch with tiled floor leading to the naturally lit hallway; a bright dual aspect sitting room with a brick fire place leads through to the dining room, again with dual aspect, overlooking the extensive gardens. The kitchen, with a door into the garden, has a compliment of floor mounted cupboards, work surfaces and appliances, while there is a large adjoining utility room that could be easily adapted for other uses. Completing the ground floor, there are two double bedrooms, one with a basin and built-in cupboard with stained glass panels, the other has a charming antique frieze over the door, on the hall side. A stair, with window light, leads to the first floor.
The studio, on the first floor, has two three quarter height dormer windows, one of which faces The Pentlands. It is a fabulous room that could also be adapted to suit a multitude of purposes. The modern shower room with three piece suite also has a dramatic view of The Pentlands. Throughout the cottage there is plentiful storage. It is double glazed and is heated by a propane gas fired central heating system.
The cottage’s delightful and secluded garden is laid to lawns with established and cleverly stocked beds and borders, boasting a vast selection of plants and shrubs, as well as the colourful hue of azaleas and rhododendrons. There is parking conveniently provided behind the cottage.
