4 bedroom detached house for sale
Ravensneuk, Penicuik, Midlothian
With the original gate lodge dating back from around 1800, South Lodge has been extended and altered over the past 20 years to create a spacious and luxurious home, full of character and charm.
The house has large, well proportioned rooms which give a feeling of space while still having a very cosy feel. It is an ideal family home whilst also being a wonderful property for entertaining with the stunning upstairs drawing room, featuring an exposed beam and purlin roof and the very flexible living accommodation on the ground floor.
Everyday living concentrates around the spacious and beautifully fitted farmhouse style kitchen which has ample room for informal dining.
There are four good sized bedrooms, two of which are located on the ground floor. The master bedroom with en suite, located on the first floor, is incredibly spacious; indeed it could easily be converted into two large bedrooms if required. Also on this floor is a luxurious family bathroom featuring natural limestone tiling.

South Lodge is located in a lovely semi-rural setting just 1 mile from Penicuik and within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh city centre.
Penicuik caters for most daily requirements with a selection of banks, a post office, a public swimming pool and a variety of shops. The town has six primary schools as well as two high schools (Penicuik and Beeslack). There is also a selection of independent schools to choose from in Edinburgh.
Edinburgh has all the shops, services and attractions to be expected of Scotland's capital city, and Straiton Retail Park (4 miles via the A701) has several major stores including Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's and Ikea. A Park & Ride bus service runs regularly from Straiton to Edinburgh city centre.
While South Lodge is ideally placed for access to shops and amenities, it has a pretty rural location and is well placed for those who enjoy outdoor activities. The Pentland Hills Regional Park has over 100km of hill walks and wildlife trails and, amongst plenty of golf courses in the area, the clubs at Glencorse and West Linton are particularly popular. Several nearby reservoirs are stocked with trout, and game shooting is widely available in the area.
South Lodge is set within approximately 0.6 acres of wooded gardens. To the rear of the property is a large patio area.
Accessed by a private shared drive there is a large gravel parking area with space for several cars, leading up to a large double garage.
There is a self-contained office to the side of the property which, subject to the relevant planning permission being granted, could be extended into the garage area to create further living accommodation.
