Occupying a generous plot of land that measures close to an acre, this rarely available, two-bedroom, detached cottage is an outstanding stone-built home in move-in condition. It offers a sought-after rural lifestyle in the village of North Middleton, surrounded by picturesque countryside, and is just a 30 minutes' drive from Edinburgh city centre. The south-facing property further boasts sociable open-plan living, a high-specification four-piece bathroom, and a fully-floored attic, as well as generous private parking and a substantial rear garden that benefits from a rural outlook over mature trees and an idyllic stream located at the base of the garden. Furthermore, the exceptional plot included in the sale provides buyers with excellent potential for further development, subject to planning permission (sttp).
Inside, an inviting hall welcomes you in, defined by a soothing neutral palette and a solid oak floor. On the left is the open-plan living and dining room, which continue the hall's appealing decoration, adding tasteful accent walls to the mix. This generous, dual-aspect reception room boasts defined areas for lounge furniture and a table and chairs. Furthermore, it has a press cupboard and, for cosy evenings, a Morso Squirrel wood-burning stove. Conveniently, the kitchen openly extends from the dining area, enjoying a dual aspect. It is fitted with cabinets and wooden worktops, housing a Belfast sink, an integrated oven and gas hob, an undercounter washing machine and space for a fridge/freezer. The first and second bedrooms are both well-proportioned doubles that are located to the front and rear of the home respectively. The principal bedroom further benefits from spacious dimensions and a shelved recess and a cast-iron feature fireplace. The bedrooms are served by an opulent bathroom fitted with a high-spec four-piece suite, including a double-ended bathtub and a step-in shower cubicle. Accessed from the hall, via a drop-down ladder, there is also a fully-floored and insulated attic that offers a generous, light-filled space for creative use and storage. Double-glazed windows and lpg gas central heating ensure year-round comfort. Full-fibre broadband (ftth) provides fast internet.
Externally, the expansive rear garden is a vibrant haven for relaxing and dining in the sun, enjoying sweeping areas of lawn, patios, and mature planting. It also backs onto a picturesque woodland area and a tranquil stream that passes by the property. Almost covering one acre, this plot of land also provides exceptional opportunities to extend and develop further (sttp). Parking for multiple vehicles is provided via a multi-car driveway and a detached double garage, with an accompanying storage room.
Extras: All fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, and a washing machine to be included in the sale.
North Middleton, Midlothian
Nestled in the scenic Midlothian countryside, yet just 13 miles from the capital, the tranquil village of North Middleton offers an idyllic rural lifestyle within easy reach of the city. The historic hamlet was established around the Borthwick Castle, which is recognised as the largest and best-preserved surviving example of a Scottish medieval fortification. Owing to its stunning semi-rural setting, North Middleton is perfect for exploring the great outdoors, from hiking and hillwalking in the Pentland Hills Regional Park, to golfing in East Lothian or fishing in the Scottish Borders. Situated just two miles southeast of Gorebridge, North Middleton has retained a quaint village atmosphere, complete with a post office and village hall run by the community, while Gorebridge is just a few minutes' drive away for everyday essentials. Schooling is provided locally at Moorfoot Primary School and the village is also well placed for a choice of independent schooling options in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
