    Dating back to 1889, this six-bedroom, five-bathroom, four-reception room has ample space for both living and entertaining.

    While buyers will enjoy this home’s quiet secluded setting, commuters will also like the fact that it’s within easy each of Edinburgh via road or train.

    Although the property’s distinctive windows have been upgraded by Ventrolla throughout, they still retain a certain period charm.

    Just like a scene straight out of a Jane Austen novel guests can retire to the original drawing room for some much needed downtime and warm their cockles in front of the Adam style fireplace. The bay window also offers glorious views of the 0.65 acre grounds.

    A four oven Aga and kitchen units in cream contrast beautifully with the polished granite work surfaces. Two integrated fridges and freezers and space for a six-seater dining table make this the perfect family-friendly space.

    Why go out when you can get friends round for a game of pool and fireside chats on comfy leather armchairs?

    The wooden sleigh bed, and chunky oak striped wallpaper evoke a ski chalet feel. But with so much space in this generous double bedroom you’ve got the freedom to decorate it whichever way you like.

    The freestanding clawfoot bathtub is the standout piece in this elegant bathroom. We also love the his and hers sinks encased in a stylish cabinet.

    Vast stretches of sandy beach and clear blue water within sight – yes please! We can’t think of a more calming vista to wake up to.
