Full description

This beautiful family home is set in an elevated position in the village of Lasswade and the conservation area of Broomieknowe. It is a well-established and sought after residential district, approximately 1 mile from the city bypass and 6 miles south of Edinburgh city centre. There are excellent facilities in the area with good local shopping, excellent schooling, a wide range of recreational and leisure facilities, as well as a number of golf courses including Kings Acre, Broomieknowe and the Melville Golf Centre. The Esk Valley and Pentland Hills offer a variety of picturesque walks and the Hillend dry ski slope is nearby. Various excellent independent schools are within reach, including Merchiston, George Watson's, St. Margaret's, Fettes and Loretto. Lasswade is close to the City Bypass with connections to Edinburgh Airport and the Central Scotland motorway network and also local public transport links, including the new Borders railway.

This is a deceptively spacious, stylish, and contemporarily decorated detached bungalow which enjoys uninterrupted panoramic views over the Lasswade and Kevock Valley to the nearby Pentland Hills.

This superb family home is set in large private gardens. The front sitting room is an impressive and incredibly light well-proportioned room with a large picture window to take in the wonderful views. It has attractive oak flooring, a floral feature wall, and a modern wall mounted living flame gas fire. The luxurious kitchen has high gloss, cream units with contrasting marble work surfaces and sleek, glass splashbacks. A large island with a breakfast bar style area gives space for more informal dining. The additional generously sized family room with solid cherrywood wood flooring is accessed via French doors from the kitchen. This room has ample space for a dining table and chairs and is a fantastic area to entertain. Access to the garden is through the patio doors which, with the large picture windows, flood this room with lots of natural light.
The master bedroom is a very spacious double with an attractive feature wall. The room has double aspect windows and oak laminate flooring. There is ample space for free-standing bedroom furniture. The property has three further good-sized double bedrooms.
The bathroom has a stylish suite with roll top bath and glass basin, and a separate, corner shower cubicle with light and fan. Fresh white tiling with mosaic style detailing give the room a contemporary feel. There is also a large study off the hallway.
There is a large, partly floored, attic providing lots of storage space, but which could be modified to give additional accommodation.

There is a large, sun drenched, very private and child friendly garden to the rear with a decking area and a large lawn. There is also an attractively planted, raised flower bed and a choice of sunny seating areas. There is a further neatly maintained garden to the front, and a large driveway gives convenient off-street parking for multiple cars.
There is also a grassy plot of land with trees of approx 0.2 acres which has additional potential.

The property is fully double glazed and has gas central heating.
This is an impressive, must see home in walk in condition which has been lovely maintained by the current owners.

Fixtures and fittings: Integrated appliances, some light fittings, carpets, and free standing master bedroom furniture are included in the sale.
