Tenure: Freehold

Kirklands Cottage is a delightful four bedroom detached bungalow traditionally built of stone under a slated roof. The property was formerly 2 cottages dating from mid and late 19th century and was converted into one in the 1980s. The house sits in a secluded position just outside the hamlet of Faucheldean near Winchburgh and set back from the road down a quiet lane. The property boasts spacious accommodation and charming gardens, and benefits from both a peaceful location, and easy access to the local amenities of Winchburgh village and Broxburn. The bustle of Edinburgh is less than 12 miles away.

The cottage has a large and welcoming sitting room, with a highly attractive double-height vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, a dual aspect and with French doors opening onto the gardens. It is a light and airy space with a wood-burning stove helping to create a cosy atmosphere. The kitchen is equipped with a range cooker and a farmhouse-style sink. There is also a dining room, with a feature solid fuel stove, and study, both of which offer flexible and spacious accommodation and could be utilised for a variety of purposes.

There are four bedrooms, including the large master and two additional double bedrooms. The master has an en suite bathroom, while there is also a family bathroom.

The property, on the Hopetoun estate, is accessed via a peaceful lane. There is a parking area to the side of the house, with a garage for covered parking. The cottage is surrounded by mature trees, with open fields beyond, creating an enchanting and secluded feel. The gardens, which consist of lawns, flowerbeds and a substantial vegetable patch, provide a splendid environment in which to relax.

The property lies ½ a mile outside the village of Winchburgh, a small but thriving community 10 miles to the west of Edinburgh. The area is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with the striking and distinctive pink hills of the Greendykes Bing just outside the village. Winchburgh has a good selection of everyday amenities, from village stores to a medical practice, pharmacy, post office and primary school. For leisure, Niddry Castle Golf Club is nearby, while the area is perfect walking, cycling and riding territory. Edinburgh, with its historic city centre and excellent selection of shops, bars, restaurants, leisure facilities and attractions, is close-at-hand. The M8 and M9 motorways are easily accessible, with junction 1 of the M9 less than four miles away.
