DESCRIPTION
Whippielaw Farmhouse is a detached, traditional farmhouse, situated on Main Street at the south end of Pathhead. It dates from the early nineteenth century and is built of stone under a slate roof with a recent harled extension to the rear. The family accommodation, which has full double glazing and gas central heating, has been fully modernised and benefits from contemporary kitchen and bathroom fixtures and fittings. Other features include shuttered windows, laminate floors and fitted carpets.
The main entrance leads from the paved yard to the rear hall and the spacious and well fitted kitchen/diner. A separate passage leads to the front door and hall off which the sitting room and study/office are located. The sitting room has a wood burning stove, ideal for cosy winter evenings. The utility room and cloakroom, both accessed from the kitchen, complete the ground floor.
Upstairs the large master bedroom and en-suite shower-room lie at the rear of the house. There are 3 further double bedrooms, family bathroom and a shower-room.
Outside there is a double garage with electronic up and over door, parking for 3 cars and an enclosed garden with far reaching views to the east.


GENERAL
The pretty conservation village of Pathhead lies in attractive countryside, within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh city centre.
The village is so-called for being at the head of the traditional old route from Lauder to Edinburgh, dating back to Roman times. Formerly known as Dere Street, it ran from Hadrian’s Wall in Northumbria to Cramond on the Firth of Forth. Lying alongside the Tyne Water, it is bounded on the north by an imposing bridge designed by Thomas Telford.
Edinburgh city centre, the City Bypass and A1 are easily reached via the new Dalkeith Bypass, which also offers access to Edinburgh International Airport and Scotland’s motorway network. There are regular bus services into Edinburgh, about 12 miles away, and park and ride facilities at Sheriffhall and Newcraighall, which also has a rail link to the city centre. The A68 provides direct access to the Scottish Borders. Local village services include a post office/store, country pub and health centre. Out of town shopping can be found at nearby Straiton and Fort Kinnaird retail parks.
There are popular private nurseries at Edgehead, about 1 mile, and Fala, about 4 miles away. Primary schooling is available in the village at the newly built Tynewater Primary and there is a new secondary school in Dalkeith. Loretto School in Musselburgh is within easy driving distance, as are a number of other well regarded schools in Edinburgh.
The surrounding area offers a range of activities for outdoor enthusiasts. East Lothian is famed for its wide choice of beautiful sandy beaches, with watersports such as kite surfing, kayaking and sailing on offer. There are world class golf courses, including Royal Musselburgh, Gullane and the Open Championship course at Muirfield. The beautiful countryside is ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding. To the south and west, the Pentland and Lammermuir Hills offer further opportunities for rural pursuits.
