A feeling of quality

Throughout this home, every care has been taken to ensure the very best design, materials and workmanship. This is reflected in the high-quality ‘look and feel’ of the entire property – from the quality of fittings and fitments to domestic appliances.


Style, comfort and natural beauty

Entering from the courtyard at the front of the property, the immediate impression is one of light and space as you step into the open-plan sitting and dining room. Natural light floods into the galleried hall from the huge windows surrounding the door, and from roof windows in the storey above. It is reflected by the light cream walls and elegant solid oak wood flooring, as well as the beautiful solid oak of the bespoke handcrafted oak central staircase and all the woodwork.

The feeling is heightened as you walk through glazed oak double doors and into the sitting room, with its vaulted ceiling and Velux windows and its Nordan, argon-filled double glazed windows, which run from floor to ceiling, creating panoramic views across West Lothian and towards Edinburgh. A picture window wraps around the corner, providing uninterrupted and spectacular views over farmland and pasture right across to Arthur's Seat and Edinburgh Castle as well as to the Five Sisters and the Pentland Hills.

In the corner, a Scandinavian ‘Jydepejsen’ wood-burning stove with its high 7 – 8 kW output and circulating fan guarantees cosy evenings by the fire on a wild winter’s night and can heat the entire downstairs area. This is a room that is perfect for summer too – for throwing open the windows and doors and letting the soft country breeze flow through your home. It is a room that is fantastic for all seasons and all occasions – from personal time to the most convivial gatherings of friends and family.


The bright and uplifting contemporary champagne kitchen and dining room is a revelation with its NEFF appliances, induction hob and the spectacular views that will provide a backdrop to your family breakfasts and evening dinners thanks to its awe-inspiring outlook.

Quality and convenience

The very fabric of the house exudes quality at every turn. Downstairs there is a large double bedroom, which is perfect for older guests or family members. Next to the kitchen, there is a great utility room too, with direct access to the garden. The open-plan layout of the house creates a sense of drama as well as space in this elegant and surprising home.

More quality and practicality upstairs

The theme continues upstairs as you climb the hand-crafted oak staircase. Here, on the extensive landing, there is plenty of space for a home workstation. Off the landing, there are three large double bedrooms and a master suite with an en suite bathroom. Again, the views are stunning and ever-changing. There is also a stylish family bathroom.

It is reflected by the light cream walls and elegant solid oak wood flooring, as well as the beautiful solid oak of the bespoke handcrafted oak central staircase and all the woodwork.
There is the latest technology throughout the house too, with a 5.1 surround sound system in the vaulted ceiling of the living room and through the building. The house is CAT 5 wired, with powered ceiling speakers in many of the rooms, and there is an installed iPod dock in the wall of the sitting room; it all adds up to complete entertainment and connectivity everywhere.

A house with a sense of discovery

The exterior of the house is as surprising as the interior – nowhere is this more apparent than in the large, lawned garden, which is accessed via the French doors of the sitting room. They lead out onto a patio, which runs parallel to and adjoins the huge lawn area, bordered by hedgerow and farmland beyond, which runs down the side of the house and to the rear of the property.




There is further surprise here in the shape of a large hexagonal ‘Arctic’ BBQ hut, which sits on a concrete base and can accommodate large parties of up to about 12 people. Professionally installed in November 2015, it includes an impressive in-built rotisserie charcoal grill and fully ventilated cooking chamber. This is a great place at all times of the year, and adds to the sense of freedom and adventure here; it really heightens the feeling of relaxation and general getting away from it all. It is somewhere to shrug off the troubles of the day or to unwind during a long weekend.
