Belvedere is a stunning and exclusive five bedroom detached family home circa 3,200sqft (299sqm) set in an elevated position and in peaceful surroundings within the Broomieknowe Conservation Area on the outskirts of Lasswade. This beautiful family home, is set in beautiful private gardens with spectacular views towards Edinburgh, has been upgraded and decorated to a high standard. Viewing is highly recommended.

Belvedere is approached along a short lane leading directly off Broomieknowe with parking to the front and side of the property. The house is situated within easy reach of Edinburgh's city by-pass and within about 6 miles of the city centre. The original property dates from the 1850's and has in its lifetime been extended, sub divided and then further extended before being re-instated as a single dwelling as recently as 2009. The property comprises a well conceived combination of traditional period construction and innovative contemporary design which together blend extremely well and add significantly to the overall space and character of the property.

On the ground floor within the original house there is a deep vestibule area leading into a large reception hall with a wall of built in bookshelves. There is a comfortable sitting room with multi fuel stove and a door leading out to the garden and a formal dining room with a working marble fireplace and window shutters. Both of these rooms enjoy exceptional views across the local landscape and are located to the rear of the property. Whilst to the front is a large guest double bedroom with an en suite shower room (this room is presently used as a study). The modern contemporary extension at the western end of the house includes a family room with multi fuel stove and glass panelled door leading to the decked terrace and garden beyond. The family room is open plan to a superb kitchen/breakfasting room with a full range of kitchen units with polished granite work tops and a range of Siemens and John Lewis integrated appliances. There are excellent levels of natural light emanating from roof lights and a large set of glazed doors leading out to the decked terrace and garden. Behind the kitchen there is a large utility room with excellent built in storage and a vestibule with coats cupboard and a side door leading out to the front courtyard area. There is a separate WC and an open tread stair leading to the first floor.

On the first floor there is a large master bedroom suite incorporating a dressing area and shower room. A short flight of stairs leads back into the original house where there are three further double bedrooms, a large landing area, a family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle and additional walk in storage cupboards which has the potential (subject to the required local authority consent) to become an additional en suite shower room.
