** CLOSING DATE SET: WED 22ND FEB 2023 @ 12:00 ** - Part Exchange available! McEwan Fraser is delighted to bring this stunning five-bedroom detached house to the market. The property sits on a generous plot of land with ample parking, private gardens, and a secure gated yard that includes an extensive workshop/office suite offering substantial commercial potential for the right buyer. Internally, the property is presented in excellent condition and offers versatile accommodation over two floors. There are four double bedrooms on the first floor including an en-suite master bedroom; a fifth bedroom with en-suite and attached sitting room on the ground floor which could be self-contained for an older relative or as a short-term let; spacious lounge with panoramic views toward the Firth of Forth; formal dining room; two family bathrooms and a large dining kitchen.
The main house was originally constructed as a workshop for lorries and later converted into a residential dwelling. The original entrance is now floor-to-ceiling glass and gives direct access to a bright and spacious hallway which is overlooked by a mezzanine landing. The hallway enjoys a contemporary colour scheme, tiled flooring, a working stove, and a beautiful bespoke staircase. The hallway gives direct access to the main bathroom, dining room, kitchen, and fifth bedroom with an attached sitting room. The dining room is on your left as you enter and has ample space for a six or eight-seat table and supporting furniture. The dining room has been finished with laminate flooring, contemporary colours, and bespoke fitted shelving. Due to the spacious nature of the kitchen, this room could easily be utilised as a family room or home office. Double doors from the hallway lead into a beautiful modern kitchen that comprises an extensive range of base and wall-mounted units which are topped with contrasting worksurfaces and set against tiled splashbacks. Further food preparation space is provided by a central island unit. The kitchen has a range of integrated appliances including a 5-ring gas hob, microwave, grill, oven, and dishwasher. Space is provided for a freestanding fridge freezer. There is ample space in the kitchen to include a dining table.
Bedroom five is a generous double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. There is plenty of space for a large wardrobe and further supporting furniture. There is a sitting room adjacent to this bedroom that is also accessed from the main hall. Currently, the room is finished with kitchen units and has all pipework and wiring in place for a hob, oven, and washing machine. This would create a self-contained unit, perfect for someone needing their own independent space. Both rooms have access to a small hallway with an external door giving private access. Alternatively, the room could be refinished to create a sixth double bedroom.
The dual-aspect living room is located on the first floor to take advantage of elevated open views across the surrounding countryside towards the Forth in one direction and the Pentland Hills in the other. A wood-burning stove in one corner creates a natural focal point for the room. However, the space on offer will give a new owner plenty of flexibility to create their ideal entertaining space. The first floor also gives access to four bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom one is the obvious master and also enjoys views towards the Forth. There is plenty of space for a full suite of furniture and direct access to an en-suite shower room. Bedrooms two, three, and four are all double bedrooms although bedroom four is currently utilised as a large dressing room and fitted with an array of wardrobes. Accommodation on this floor is completed by a further family bathroom with a bath and separate shower.
Further benefits include oil-fired central heating, double glazing, and an EV charging point.
A door from the kitchen leads out to the gardens and gives immediate access to an elevated sun terrace above the garage. Adjacent to the house there is extensive parking that could comfortably hold five cars without any loss of amenity. The garden itself runs along the side of the property and has been extensively landscaped. There is a mature lawn, pond, three sheds, a polytunnel, a summer house, and a large deck with open views over the surrounding countryside.
THE YARD AND WORKSHOP
Secure gates at the side of the house lead to a large yard which could provide extensive space for further vehicles or machinery. The yard gives access to a garage and a substantial workshop and office suite which approaches 1100 Sqft. The workshop is wired for electricity (no meter currently) and has two WCs. Previously utilised by an engineering workshop, there is plenty of potential to convert the property to a variety of business uses.
