A beautiful house in a peaceful and secluded situation tucked away among the hills and yet within a half-hour drive of Edinburgh - Wakefield House seems almost too good to be true!
But true it is. This gracious country house sits in its own generous garden at the centre of a large country estate, just 2 miles from the pretty conservation village of West Linton (shops, pubs, restaurants, golf course).
This unique property has an abundance of stunning features and its elegant and comfortable interior provides a wonderful feeling of light and space. There are two sitting rooms with woodburner and open fire respectively, and the newly fitted kitchen leads to a terrace (furniture), perfect for breakfasting in the sunshine. A particularly striking feature is the mezzanine dining room which opens to a charming balcony from where you have stunning views across the mature gardens and beyond to the picturesque rolling hills.
It goes without saying that in these surroundings you can head directly into the hills, while the nearby reservoir makes a destination for another pleasant stroll. To the south lie all the attractions of the Scottish Border Country with opportunities for riding, mountain biking, more walking and golf and a lot of sightseeing as well. To the north, you have Edinburgh more or less on the doorstep. Buses run regularly from the village, so you can even forget parking worries in the capital. Don't forget to visit historic Roslin Chapel, famous long before its appearance in the da Vinci Code, on the way.
