An exceptional Georgian house which has retained fine period detail throughout, with additional accommodation provided via a separate cottage, has been brought to the market.
Presented by Rettie, Brewery House, at 70 Main Street, Mid Calder, dates from the 18th Century and, for the most part, follows the traditional design of a Georgian House. As the name suggests, the property is the site of a former brewery.

The property has retained fine period detail, constructed of stone under a slate roof, with astragal sash windows with working shutters, decorative cornicing, and a combination of natural sanded wood and tiled flooring. These have been sympathetically enhanced with the addition of a contemporary kitchen/breakfast room, wood burning stoves and quality bathroom fittings.
Access from the front is via double storm doors with a decorative fanlight above to a glazed door, the welcoming hall with its tiled flooring and classical stone stair provides an impressive entrance to the house.
