1 Catcune Mill Cottages is a charming and deceptively large 4-5 bedroom family home nestled in a terrace of cottages and located in a tranquil rural hamlet yet within easy reach of the new Border Railway at Gorebridge, Edinburgh's city by-pass and the city itself. The property comprises the original stone built period cottage and a more recent extension which together provide impressive, versatile and generous family accommodation.
The entrance hall is modern in design with a slate tile floor and a large overhead skylight which provides excellent levels of natural light. The hall provides a link between the original period cottage to one side and the new extension to the other. To the rear of the hall there is a separate WC and a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, the central heating boiler, hot water cylinder and electrical consumer board. To one side of the hall is the modern extension with a large open plan kitchen/dining/family room at ground floor level and two bedrooms and a dressing room with plumbing in place to convert to a further bathroom above. The kitchen area has a range of wall and floor based kitchen units with ample work surfaces and a modern 'Range' style cooker with two ovens, a plate warmer and an eight ring gas burner. There is a slate tiled floor with under floor heating and ample room for a large kitchen table. The family area has a hard wood floor and the whole room enjoys a delightful west facing aspect onto the garden. From this room a set of glazed concertina doors lead out to a spacious timber decked terrace and the woodland garden beyond. The two upstairs bedrooms enjoy westerly views onto the woodland garden and across the local countryside.
Within the period section of the house there is a large sitting room with a log burning stove, a study or 5th bedroom, a bathroom and two further bedrooms, one on the ground floor and the other at the top of a staircase in the sitting room. There is also a large loft/storage area accessed via a hatch at the top of the staircase.
1Catcune Mill Cottages is a rarely available country property in an idyllic woodland setting, a short drive from the city bypass and within easy reach of Edinburgh. There is a wide range of local shops in nearby villages including a leisure centre, library and pharmacy. A 24 hour Tesco supermarket is about 3 miles away whilst a wider range of shopping facilities are available at nearby Straiton Retail Park. Vogrie Country Park is also within easy reach as is the highly regarded Moorfoot Primary School in North Middleton. Regular bus services run to Edinburgh City Centre and surrounding areas and the Borders rail link stops at nearby Gorebridge station which is about a mile away.
The garden is a delightful south and west facing woodland area and a riot of spring colours. There is a host of spring flowers, mature trees and other mature shrubs and plants. The 'Fushie' Burn runs through the garden and there is a small stone built bridge spanning the burn. At the far end of the garden is a gravel drive leading to the double garage with a studio room above. There is a log store and a garden shed.
There is a gravel driveway coming off the minor country road and leading down to the detached timber built double garage.
