Lugton is a charming small hamlet, just 6 miles south of Edinburgh in the county of Midlothian, close to the Burgh of Dalkeith. Lugton is exceptionally well positioned for access to the Edinburgh city bypass, the Royal Infirmary at Little France, Edinburgh airport and has excellent road connections.

The property is well positioned for access to retail parks at Newcraighall and Straiton and private schooling within the Edinburgh area and also golf courses both locally and in East Lothian.


Lugton House lies within the charming hamlet of Lugton which has a number of fine old houses and adjoins Dalkeith Country Park. The property was originally a farmhouse on the Buccleuch Estate and indeed the east wing originally included a byre. Surrounded by high stone walls the property is approached by a driveway into beautifully secluded landscaped grounds. The house itself is built of mellow sandstone and offers excellent family accommodation over two floors. There is also an extremely useful two-storey east wing, with its own access, which has full planning consent for development into separate family or home office accommodation. The house stands in a generous garden which extends to 0.795 acre and has the benefit of outline planning consent for a second house within the secluded orchard.

Lugton House is entered through a porch into the front hall which has an elegant curved stair rising to the first floor. There is a cloakroom with wash basin and W.C. At the westmost end of the house is the formal drawing room which is a fine reception room with open hearth fireplace and french door to the side garden. There is a comfortable sitting room with bay window overlooking the rear garden and connecting door to the rear hall and rear porch. The kitchen/breakfast room which also overlooks the garden has a range of base and wall units and incorporates a two oven Aga cooker and dishwasher. Beyond the kitchen with steps down from the hall lies the formal dining room with a fully restored range and a doorway leading to a utility room, with walk-in storage cupboard and door to the garden. Off the first floor landing is the principal bedroom with fine distant views, fitted wardrobes and a well appointed ensuite bathroom with separate bath and shower. Also on this floor is a shower room and 3 further bedrooms, all with a pleasant outlook.

From the dining room a doorway connects to the east wing of the property which is on two floors and can either be used as family accommodation within the main house or is ideal to provide independent accommodation on two floors with its own entrance. As presently arranged at ground/garden level there are two bedrooms and a stairway to two further bedrooms, and a showerroom. The planning consent allows a purchaser to create an excellent self-contained house with courtyard garden and its own vehicular access.

The property stands in approximately 4/5th acre of delightful garden and grounds fully enclosed
by a high stone wall.

There is a pathway to the front of the house and vehicular access through double wrought iron gates leading to a generous parking area to the rear of the house. There is a delightful and beautifully tended mature garden with well stocked flower and shrub beds, a lawn tennis court, orchard with mature fruit trees and a variety of conifers. Throughout the garden there are secluded seating areas which enjoy sun for much of the day. There is a level lawned area with patio just to the rear of the house with a barbeque. There is a stone-built garden store, greenhouse and a variety of stores and outhouses.


3 reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, 4 main bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, self-contained wing, utility and cloakroom, lovely, fully enclosed walled garden, planning consent for additional house, in all, about 4/5th acre.
