The present owners have reconfigured and refurbished the property to make it perfect for modern family life and entertaining, whilst retaining prolific period features including a variety of glazing styles, wall presses, cornicing and a beautiful fireplace in the entrance hall.

Externally, rare retained features include a coloured tile band, a tiled star motif, pierced bargeboarding and a spike finial and weather vane atop the conservatory.

The house is approached via original stone gate piers and a long private driveway that culminates in a parking area in front of a garage block. A solid timber panelled door with a rectangular fanlight above opens into a vestibule with original terrazzo tiled flooring. The impressive entrance hall features timber flooring, an original fireplace with a beautifully carved surround, decorative ionic columns and a bay window with a seat below.

The generous kitchen/breakfast room forms the hub of the house and is fitted with granite work surfaces, two sinks and an excellent range of units including a pull-out larder, deep pan drawers and a long breakfast bar. Appliances include a ‘Britannia’ range with seven gas burners, extractor fan hood and double oven, an integrated dishwasher and a larder fridge freezer with a water and ice dispenser.

A walk-in pantry is fitted with additional storage including a wine rack and a deep store. A separate utility room is fitted with an additional sink and is plumbed for a washing machine, with space remaining for additional appliances. The drawing room is a light and beautifully proportioned room featuring a wood burning stove within a timber surround, flooded with natural light via a south-east facing sash window and a deep five-pane bay window within the corner tower.

A door links the drawing room with the adjacent sitting room; another bright and spacious room with a shelved press, a wall of bespoke fitted units and a bay window, with a seat below. From here, double doors open to a magnificent Amdega conservatory that in turn provides access to both the kitchen and the garden.

Also on this floor is a dining room; a beautifully appointed room with deep cornicing, a decorative fireplace, shelved wall press and an Elizabethan style bay window with leaded panes. A traditional cloakroom and separate WC complete the accommodation on this floor.

The original oak staircase ascends to the spacious galleried landing on the first floor, lit by a large roof light. The master bedroom incorporates the tower and is therefore a light and spacious room, further benefiting from extensive wardrobe storage and an en-suite shower room, with a generously proportioned cubicle.

The second double bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room and is a lovely south facing room, with a built-in wardrobe. Bedroom three is located on the arts and crafts side of the house and features a large Elizabethan-style leaded bay window. Adjacent, is a spacious, traditionally styled four-piece bathroom. The fourth double bedroom also benefits from a bay window and features a wall press and fitted wardrobes. Two further double bedrooms on the south side of the house share a spacious shower room. One of the bedrooms benefits from a decorative fireplace with a cast iron insert and the other has lovely views towards the Pentland Hills.
