Tenure: Freehold


Heriot House is set on the outskirts of Newtongrange, near Eskbank on the outskirts of the well-established and sought after residential district of Dalkeith, approximately 7 miles south of Edinburgh city centre. There are excellent facilities in the area with good local shopping and schooling and a range of recreational and leisure facilities, as well as a number of golf courses including Kings Acre, Broomieknowe, Newbattle and Melville Castle. Nearby lie Mavisbank, Rosslyn Glen and the famous Rosslyn Chapel, while the Pentland Hills offer a variety of picturesque walks and the Hillend dry ski slope. Various excellent independent schools are within easy reach, including Merchiston, George Watson's, Fettes and Loretto. The property is also well located for access to the City Bypass, with connections to Edinburgh Airport and the Central Scotland motorway network.


Heriot House is a beautifully appointed and fully modernised detached house set in generous walled grounds with the benefit of outline planning permission to erect a further detached 1.5 storey house. The property has aspects all round, but predominantly focused on the south to benefit from plenty of natural light and with free flowing family living space, elegant reception space and 5 double bedrooms, this is a superb family home.


A stone path borders the house and leads to the three entrances. At the west end of the house the front door opens to an entrance vestibule which leads through a timber and glazed door to the main hall where the principal reception rooms radiate and the stair rises to the upper floor. The formal drawing room and dining room overlook the garden with a south facing aspect and link together via an arched 'secret' door. The dining room then links via the rear hall to the breakfasting kitchen with Aga. Off the rear hall lies a utility room and a cloakroom, as well as the back door. Also on the ground floor is the family sitting room with a flat screen television, DVD and music system wired in. There are also two double bedrooms, of which one benefits from an en suite shower room.

The stair rises to the broad landing which is well lit by the south facing stair window and provides access to the master bedroom with dressing room, third bedroom and a fifth bedroom currently used as a study. All bedrooms benefit from built in storage. There is also a family bath and shower room, which has been recently refitted to a high specification, on this floor, as well as access to a floored attic, used principally for storage.

The house is set in a generous walled corner plot extending to approximately 0.522 acres and is well stocked with a number of plants and shrubs which provide colour for most of the year. To the east of the house there is a productive vegetable and fruit garden whilst to the front of the house there is a beautifully maintained lawn which benefits from light throughout the day. A large gate opens to the courtyard where there is ample space for a number of cars to park off the street and which provides access to the detached double garage. To the rear of the garage there is a large paved area where there is a greenhouse and large shed.

Planning Permission
There is outline planning permission for the erection of a 1.5 storey house, built in a similar style to Heriot House, and this is situated in the current fruit and vegetable garden. A driveway for the plot has been granted along the southern boundary with a new access being created in the south western corner.

Fixtures and Fittings
All fitted carpets, curtains and blinds, light fittings and integrated white goods, including the Aga, as well as the flat screen TV, DVD and sound system in the family sitting room, are included in the sale.
