Tenure: Freehold

Bryce House forms part of a larger 19th Century country house, originally known as Loganbank House. The accommodation is on three floors and is surrounded by lawned grounds which feature colourful rhododendrons and a stretch of mixed woodland.

The entrance porch opens into a wood panelled, L shaped reception hall with a multi-fuel stove set into the fireplace beneath an impressive timber and stone mantel.

The magnificent drawing room has all the grandeur to be expected of its architect, David Bryce, and retains many original features including the cornicing and working shutters. Wonderful high ceilings are offset by two stunning canted bay windows that frame the views to the Moorfoot and Lammermuir hills to the east and woodland gardens to the south. A beautiful Rococo style mantel piece frames the fireplace which houses a multi fuel stove. The dining room has elegant Georgian proportions and a lovely bay window overlooking the garden. The kitchen is a practical room with a large space for dining and a door directly into the garden.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a sitting room. The master bedroom has spectacular views to the east. The family bathroom with bath, shower and wash basin is supplemented by two WCs.

The former billiard room occupies the whole of the second floor level of the tower. This impressive space is lit from above by a cupola and has windows on three aspects. This is a versatile space and could be used for any number of purposes, such as a playroom, an artist's studio or a further bedroom.
An enclosed courtyard is situated behind the house and contains a garden store. In the grounds there is also a summer house, a log and a garage.


Milton Bridge and Penicuik have an excellent range of local facilities, including shops, a post office and both primary and secondary schools. Only a short distance away the professional and cultural hub of Edinburgh also offers a selection of independent schools.

Bryce House is ideally positioned for outside recreation. The Pentland Hills Regional Park is popular for walking, mountain biking and fell running alike and is home to the Midlothian Ski Sports Centre. There are a number of local golf courses including Glencorse, Rutherford Castle and West Linton, with all the links courses of East Lothian easily accessible via the City Bypass.

The property is well situated for access to the Edinburgh City Bypass, the city centre (8 miles) and Edinburgh Airport (12 miles). The bypass (4 miles) is to the north and gives access to the south, east and west of the city, the airport and the motorway network. The A702 provides a fast link to the M74 to the south.
