5 bedroom detached house for sale

Property Details

McEwan Fraser is delighted to present this substantial detached home to the market. Cornbank House dates from the 18th century and was originally the farmhouse for the historically significant Penicuik Estate. The property has been substantially modernised by the current owners and offers a superb contemporary interpretation of the character that Georgian buildings are renowned for. The property offers up to five bedrooms and further benefits from a self-contained one-bedroom annex that would be ideal as guest accommodation or as a potential holiday let. Externally, the property sits on around three-quarters of an acre and is hidden behind mature hedges and large electric gates. MAIN HOUSE Entering through the front door, you find an entrance vestibule which opens into the spacious central hallway. The hallway separates the two principle public rooms which both excellent natural light due to a generally southerly aspect. The sitting room on your left and drawing room on your right are both generous rooms with strip wood flooring and feature fireplaces. The proportions on offer in these two rooms will give a new owner endless flexibility to create their ideal living and entertaining space. Bedroom five is located immediately behind the drawing room. This substantial room could easily be utilised as a home office or less formal reception room depending on individual requirements. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a dining kitchen and adjacent WC. The kitchen offers a lovely balance between character and modern convenience. There are a range of base and wall mounted units arranged around an AGA and a further free-standing range cooker. Space is provided for further free-standing appliances including an American style fridge freezer which will all be included within the sale. Climbing the stairs, the first floor landing gives access the en-suite master bedroom, three further double bedrooms and a stylish master bathroom. Bedroom one is the obvious master bedroom and overlooks the front garden. Naturally bright due to a dual aspect, the master bedroom includes extensive fitted wardrobes and ample floor space for a full suite of supporting bedroom furniture. The attached en-suite shower room is fully tiled. The second bedroom is a further substantial dual aspect bedroom overlooking the front garden. Bedroom three overlooks the rear garden. Bedroom four is adjacent to the master bedroom and would make an ideal nursery if needed. The internal accommodation is completed by a stunning bathroom with free-standing bath and separate shower. Annex One of the exciting features of this house is the one bedroom annex which has a double bedroom, kitchen, shower room and gorgeous living room with rustic walls, patio doors to the rear garden and its own entrance. This self contained cottage has proved a very successful rental property for the current owners, and would provide an excellent income stream going forward! If you wanted a further income opportunity the garden to the rear has plenty of space for a lodge which could also be rented out. Grounds The grounds are entered from Carlops Road and bordered by mature hedges and protected by electronic gates. The gates open onto a driveway which is shared with an adjacent property. Cornbank house enjoys an extensive front garden with manicured lawn that would be a wonderful resource for a family. To the rear there is extensive parking, and plenty of space to further extend the property, build a multi-car garage or a substantial home office suite.
