Property Description

Key features

  • Double Glazed

Full description

The property is a brand new 1½ storey cottage designed with high ceilings to mirror Victorian proportions.

It is super-insulated with ultra efficient electric heating with conventional radiators incorporating an exceptionally eco--friendly heat recovery system which, working like a fridge in reverse, extracts heat from the external air. This means that for every 1kw of energy consumed (and paid for) it delivers 3.5kw. The new purchaser will be entitled to claim renewable heat premium payment for a grant of £850 from the Energy Saving Trust by 31st March 2012 in respect of the installation. Full double glazing and the very latest standards of thermal insulation further enhance energy efficiency.

The generous living room is complemented by a good sized fitted kitchen/dining room with window and slide-aside doors to the paved off-street parking area. It comes complete with hob, oven, fridge and freezer. An automatic washing machine will be installed in the understairs cupboard. There is also a useful shower room/wet room with shower, wc and wash hand basin on the ground floor.

Two excellent double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes are to be found on the upper floor complemented by a full bathroom. Of particular note is the useful study area accessed from the top of the stairs.

To the front of the property is a private sun-trap garden laid mainly to grass. In all, this is an ideal, easily run property combining the very best aspects of a traditional home with the exceptionally low running and maintenance costs of the new.

Situated 14 miles South West of Edinburgh City Centre – West Linton is a charming Peebleshire commuter village with a good range of community facilities and activities. There is a local newsagent/mini market, chemist and bookshop within the village. A much wider range of shopping with Tesco, Lidl and Somerfield supermarkets can be found some 5 miles to the East at Penicuik and there is a good range of local shops a little further away at Peebles and Biggar. The village has a popular pub serving meals and a well-patronised restaurant and a garage. There are a good number of community organisations, tennis courts and two golf courses nearby. The surrounding open countryside offers many areas of green space for walking, jogging, cycling etc. The excellent local authority primary school is very close to this property and feeds to the well-regarded Peebles High School. Some children commute daily to Edinburgh’s private sector schools. Regular bus services take you to and from Edinburgh serving other Borders communities including Biggar. Road access to Edinburgh via Hillend is straightforward. Hillend is the junction with the City By-Pass then East to the A1, A68 and A7 or West to the Gyle Business Park and Shopping Centre, the Airport, M8, M9, M90 and Central Scottish Motorway Network.
