Located in the centre of the popular town of Bonnyrigg, this detached period house, built in 1864 with over 240 m2 of space, is impressive throughout and offers fantastic potential with a range of reception rooms and five bedrooms. With a sunny garden, a double garage, and private parking, the property has an expansive footprint and will make a spectacular home.
You enter into a vestibule which leads into a welcoming hall with storage and a soaring ceiling – a feature prevalent throughout. To the left, you step into a formal living room with a bay window, carpeted for comfort and featuring an open fire and plenty of space for freestanding furniture. Straight through to the back of the house you come to a kitchen which has an attractive peninsula with a hob, a sweep of pine units housing an integrated double oven and grill, and a dishwasher. To the front, a generously-proportioned dining room, and to the back you find a sunny breakfast room and a handy utility cupboard. Completing the downstairs accommodation is a sunny sitting room, with access via a glazed door to the garden.
Moving upstairs, a cupola bathes the landing in streams of light. Four double bedrooms are all extremely generously proportioned and neutrally and tastefully decorated for the new owners to apply their own decorative stamp, with delightful period features such as Edinburgh Presses and cornicing. A final bedroom is currently used as a home office. Completing the accommodation is a bathroom and a separate WC, and a large loft area, mostly floored, provides further storage or conversion options. Gas central heating and double glazing (excluding one room) ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
Externally, there is a large south-facing enclosed garden with mature planting and trees, further enhancing this relaxing setting. Linked to the property is a driveway for parking and a double garage with a workshop and stores.
Extras: All floor coverings, blinds and curtains are included in the sale together with the dishwasher.
Bonnyrigg offers excellent local amenities with the High Street containing independent retailers, a supermarket, eateries, pubs, a bank, opticians, and hair and beauty salons. An idyllic hotel and eateries are found in the dell in neighbouring Lasswade, on the banks of the River North Esk. For the outdoor enthusiast, Bonnyrigg has its own football club, rugby club, Broomieknowe Golf Course, and delightful footpaths and cycle paths through the surrounding countryside. The town has a medical centre, dentists, and the Midlothian Community Hospital. Bonnyrigg is serviced by a high school and five primary schools. The well-regarded Lasswade Primary and Lasswade High School with its community centre, swimming pool, gym, and library, fall within the catchment of this property. Bonnyrigg has outstanding transport links, with buses to Edinburgh every 10 minutes during peak times, an express service, and a regular service to the ERI and new Sick Kids Hospitals. Due to its close proximity to the city bypass, traveling in all directions by car is fast and convenient. There is also a train service running from nearby Eskbank.
