Renovated by and belonging to the same architect, this is a charming three bedroom stone built Victorian cottage with slated roof, with its former loft now converted to a second floor, situated on the periphery of Kirkliston. Looking across Newliston Road to open country, the cottage is set back from the road with its own lawned front garden and mono block paved parking area. It is strategically sited for access to the central belt motorway network and Dalmeny Station that affords direct travel into Edinburgh.
Approached from Newliston Road, the cottage’s boundary is defined by a neatly clipped privet hedge, behind which is a mono block paved parking area and a lawn, divided by a path leading to its front door. To the right of the cottage, there is an attractive stone arch and a paved path that allows access to the kitchen door and the rear of the cottage.
The front door opens onto the hall and naturally lit stair case to the upper floor; under the stair case is a ‘Harry Potter’ cupboard that is very useful for storage. The living room that extends to the whole width of the cottage and has two separate doors into the hall is large enough for designated sitting and dining areas; it is on an east/west axis and is therefore flooded with light. The kitchen looks over the front garden and has both wall and floor mounted storage, down lit work surfaces and a full complement of integrated appliances. It houses the gas fired boiler and, as already stated, has an outside door.
The principal en suite bedroom is on the ground floor; it is at the rear of the cottage and is sublimely quiet. It has a large built-in wardrobe and a naturally lit shower room with three piece suite and heated ladder towel rail. The bathroom that is again naturally lit has a three-piece suite, with a shower over the bath, a heated ladder towel rail and a large built-in wall mirror.
The upper floor landing and stair are naturally lit by a Velux window. Dimensionally, there are two identical double bedrooms that both have large built-in wardrobes and Velux windows in their coombed ceilings. One of them also has an en suite shower room with three piece suite and a heated ladder towel rail. There is a separate cupboard in this same bedroom. The cottage is double glazed and has gas fired central heating.
Kirkliston is 10 miles west of the centre of Edinburg and is, consequently, well placed for commuting and recognised as such. The heart of the town is the old historic village that is a designated conservation area and is now gaining carefully designed modern residential developments, while remaining surrounded by the fertile agricultural land of West Lothian.
There are abundant local amenities and Kirkliston has both a doctor and dentist as well as a nursery and primary school and there are high schools at South Queensferry and Broomhouse Road Edinburgh, both of which are a short distance away.
There is additional local shopping at nearby South Queensferry, including a Tesco Superstore and the Gyle Shopping Centre and Livingston’s shopping centres are all easily accessible.
There are excellent road links to the M90, A8, M8 and M9, regular bus services, and a station, at Dalmeny, with a direct rail link into Edinburgh.
