Characterised by an enviable south-facing aspect, this modern detached house represents an ideal three-bedroom family home in the heart of West Linton conservation village, just twelve miles southwest of Edinburgh. Inside the house is presented to an appealing, move-in standard throughout; outside the property features a secluded, south-facing patio garden to the front, as well as a single garage and driveway to the side.

The house enjoys a quiet setting just off Main Street and is just a few minutes’ walk from village amenities and beauty spots, including Lyne Water. Approached via the enclosed suntrap garden, the front door opens into an inviting entrance hall with a convenient WC and an under-stair cupboard. To the right, the hall flows into the south-facing living/dining room, which boasts sliding patio doors onto the secluded front garden. This generous, L-shaped space falls naturally into dedicated zones for relaxing and dining, and allows access to the kitchen via a glazed door. Bathed in light from a sliding glazed door into the conservatory, the kitchen is well appointed with ample fitted storage and workspace, plus a selection of integrated and freestanding appliances. The triple-aspect conservatory provides a versatile spot for everyday dining and entertaining, with the garage and rear (6') wall providing additional privacy. The conservatory also opens onto the sunny front garden.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms: two double bedrooms and a good-sized single bedroom, which could also be used as a home office or study. Both double bedrooms are south facing, while the largest also boasts a mirrored built-in wardrobe and an additional skylight window. Completing the first floor is a bright shower room, which is immaculately tiled in neutral tones and fitted with a contemporary suite, including a double shower compartment with an electric shower and a sleek vanity with a toilet, a washbasin and excellent storage. Double-glazed windows and LPG central heating ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.

The fully-enclosed, south-facing front garden is paved for minimal maintenance, with plenty of space for potted plants, as well as established flowerbeds and climbing plants. The garden can be accessed from both the living/dining room and the conservatory, and provides an ideal spot for dining, relaxing and entertaining outdoors. The semi-detached single garage adjacent to the house benefits from electricity and water supplies, as well as a large attic storage space. The garage is supplemented with a single driveway.

Nestled in the foothills of the Pentlands, some twelve miles southwest of Edinburgh, the historic conservation village of West Linton promises an enticing Scottish Borders escape for families, professionals and retirees alike. The thriving community is served by an excellent range of local amenities, including a small supermarket, a post office and village store, a newsagent, a pharmacy, a health centre and a primary school. There is also a traditional pub, a deli, a restaurant and a tearoom. Surrounded by spectacular countryside and scenery, residents have a wealth of outdoor pursuits on their doorstep, including hiking, mountain biking and horse riding in the Pentland Hills. For sport and fitness enthusiasts, the village boasts a tennis club, a bowling club and a park with a children’s play area. West Linton Golf Club offers a stunning 18-hole course with views to the Upper Tweeddale hills to the south, Mendick Hill to the southwest and the Pentland Hills to the north. Nursery and primary schooling is available locally at West Linton Primary School, followed by secondary education at well-regarded Peebles High School. West Linton is a swift twenty-minute drive from Edinburgh City Bypass and is served by convenient public bus routes, which provide regular links to Peebles and Edinburgh via Penicuik and Morningside.
