A bright, spacious home set amidst lush gardens and rolling Scottish countryside.
Just a short hop from the magnificent city of Edinburgh.
Hawthorn House has been cleverly transformed from a pair of traditional stone cottages into a bright and airy holiday home with four generously sized bedrooms and a spacious open-plan living space. The house successfully blends the old stone façade and rural setting, on a quiet country lane enveloped by lush rolling countryside, with a modern rear aspect and contemporary interiors to create a comfortable and welcoming home.
With the entire property set out on the ground floor, Hawthorn House is the ideal home for a large group with tiny tots or guests with limited mobility. The spacious, light-filled living room features ample seating space for all, with two comfy sofas and three armchairs, and leads through to the large family kitchen, delivering an open-plan feel yet retaining some separation. The kitchen is flooded with sunlight thanks to a large skylight and bi-folding doors, which lead out to the patio and beautiful enclosed garden that wraps around the rear of the house in a semi-circle shape and combines manicured lawns with flower-filled herbaceous borders. The sheltered patio is perfect for al fresco dining while enjoying uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside and can be accessed directly from the kitchen or through the adjoining utility room (also handy for kicking off muddy boots after country walks).
Hawthorn House features four bedrooms: the master bedroom has a king size bed with ensuite shower room while the remaining bedrooms (one double and two twins) share a large family bathroom with a bath and separate waterfall shower.
Whether you stay close to home or explore further afield, this area has something to offer the whole family. In addition to walks to enjoy on the doorstep, there’s walking and cycling in nearby Dalkeith Country Park and Pentland Hills Regional Park, easy day trips to Edinburgh and sandy beaches to enjoy on the coast of East Lothian.
