Property Description

Westlands House is a magnificent five-bedroom detached family home with charming separate gatehouse, situated in an idyllic private plot with a south-facing aspect. Located just seven miles from the city centre, this is a unique opportunity to acquire country living in the city. Presented to the market in immaculate condition, the accommodation retains many of its period features and is well proportioned with five generously sized double bedrooms, three excellent receptions and three bathrooms, plus a cloakroom WC, across the main house and two-storey gatehouse. Westlands House is set within a leafy area just a stroll from the Water of Leith Walkway and a short distance from The Pentland Hills Regional Park.

The front door opens to a welcoming vestibule and hallway, with guest cloakroom WC, leading to the open plan sitting room and dining kitchen, fully equipped with stainless steel countertops and high specification appliances. Situated off the kitchen is a large, useful utility/boot room with separate entrance. Down the elegantly decorated hallway is the principal bedroom with en suite, two double bedrooms and family bathroom completing the ground floor. The first-floor level comprises the impressive south facing drawing room with log burner, a cosy snug with French doors to the Juliet balcony and a fourth double bedroom. The self-contained gatehouse provides a further double bedroom, wood-panelled sitting room with door to the cobbled garden terrace, fully fitted kitchen and shower room. Externally, the property boasts a large, gated driveway with parking for 4 to 5 cars, front garden and garage. To the rear of the property is a south facing, walled garden largely laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs, including magnolia, wisteria, hydrangeas and lavender. There is a walled vegetable garden with fruit trees plus a generous terrace area.

The property is close to good local schooling, plus many Edinburgh independent schools provide private transport to and from Balerno. Westlands House lies within a short distance from Curriehill train station which runs regular services into Edinburgh’s city centre. The City Bypass is easily accessible and links that connect to Edinburgh International Airport and Central Scotland’s main motorways network.
