Charming four bedroom detached cottage in an idyllic rural setting, offering a spacious, two-storey floorplan, in Leadburn village, south of Penicuik, Midlothian. Full of character, and dating from the 1800s, the cottage has been tastefully extended. Internally it consists of front and rear hallways, study area, living room, dining kitchen, four double bedrooms, family bathroom and shower room. At its heart is a large, farmhouse dining/kitchen with three windows to the rear grounds, and two skylights, combining to provide abundant natural light. The kitchen consists of a range of fitted units with timber worktops, Belfast sink and tiled splashbacks. There is a dual-fuel, range cooker, US-style fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. A multi-fuel stove is set into the gable, and a set of French doors open into the front living room, with a wood-burning stove as centrepiece. There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, one with built-in wardrobes, with one further double and single bedroom upstairs. Both the bathroom and shower room benefit from contemporary fittings. Features include traditional-style timber framed windows (with partial double glazing), gas central heating, good storage space, and real wood flooring. There are extensive and beautifully-maintained garden grounds to the side and rear, timber decking, parking for 5 vehicles, and a detached single garage. There are leafy views over the gardens and fine views over open countryside to the nearby Pentland Hills. Leadburn village is located some 12 miles south of Edinburgh, close to the town of Penicuik, on the edge of the Scottish Borders, on the A703 running south to Peebles. Surrounded by open countryside and with easy access to the nearby Pentlands Regional Park, Leadburn is a simple commute from Edinburgh. The City Bypass is just a short drive away and there is a regular bus service to Edinburgh. Penicuik provides a comprehensive range of amenities, excellent shopping, supermarkets including Tesco and Lidl, and well-regarded schooling at all levels. The quaint village of West Linton lies a little further away, on the A702 to Biggar and the main trunk routes south. Replacing an earlier coaching inn, the new Leadburn Inn is known for its good food and child-friendly facilities.
