Tenure: Freehold


Calderstones is situated in Edinburgh's greenbelt at the eastern foot of the Pentland Hills. Nestled in around 30 acres of land, this is a charming property that simultaneously offers the benefit of a rural location with excellent local amenities and road links.

The Pentland Hills provide not just a beautiful backdrop but also offer a range of outdoor activities such as hill-walking, biking, golfing at the Swanston and Lothianburn Golf Clubs, and skiing at Hillend's artificial slopes. The area is well resourced, with a large supermarket and general shopping just 1 mile away at Straiton retail park. Edinburgh city centre itself is just over 6 miles away and the proximity of the city bypass means that access further a field, whether to Edinburgh Airport or the central Scotland motorway network, is excellent.


Set in beautiful amenity grounds, extending to approximately 30 acres, Calderstones provides excellent family accommodation arranged over two floors, and dates from the 1920s. Approached by a sweeping driveway bordered by a number of mature trees, the property is accessed by stone steps, and is surrounded by a stone terrace.


The principal reception rooms radiate from the welcoming entrance hall, with a bright, spacious and comfortable south and east facing sitting room and the formal dining room, both retaining wonderful stripped wood floors, open fireplaces. Both rooms offer fabulous open southerly aspects over the gardens. The dual aspect spacious fourth bedroom or family room has French windows with steps leading towards the tennis court. To the other end of the house lies the kitchen with the back door, a raised dining area and further French windows accessing the terrace and swimming pool. There is also access to the gym, which is currently utilised as an office store and retains its original tiling, as does the bathroom on this level. A further well proportioned bedroom rounds off the accommodation on the ground floor.

At first floor level, there are two further generous bedrooms and a well appointed bathroom.


To the north of the property lies a large covered parking bay with internal garage space, built with a similar brick and tile construction to the house. To the other side of the house, there is a Charles Lawrence resurfaced hard tennis court, with a stone pillared outer fence, and to the west lies a superb, gas heated swimming pool.

Extending to around 30 acres, the impressive grounds are home to a wide range of mature trees and shrubs and a mixture of colourful plants. Beautifully landscaped, the gardens surrounding the house are laid predominantly to lawn, integrating a variety of small shrub beds.

Leaving Edinburgh on the A702, pass the entrance to Hillend Ski Centre on right, before arriving at the fork junction, turn into the next right through the double gates.

There is an ongoing planning application to convert the grounds of Calderstones. Further information can be requested from the selling agents.
