About this property

  • **Closing date – Tuesday 3rd October at 12 noon**

    White Cottage is an impressive detached house which sits quietly within extensive, mature gardens, entirely secluded from the wider world. The property, which is located in the much sought after Braids area of Edinburgh, is a flexible and spacious family home within easy travelling distance of the City Centre.

    Entering through a porch into a welcoming hallway off which the main accommodation is located. Of particular note is the impressive sitting room which is flooded with natural light from the south and west aspects and a door on the southern side which leads to the garden. Adjacent to the sitting room is the well appointed kitchen which provides ample storage and work space.

    Beyond the kitchen is the snug which is a charming space again benefiting from south and west aspects and boasting French doors to the garden. A utility room is found off the snug which in turn has a door leading to the garden.

    To the front of the property overlooking the front garden and entrance path is the dining room which provides a flexible space that would serve equally well as an additional bedroom or an office space.

    The corridor leads past here to the sleeping quarters comprising a spacious principal bedroom, complete with en suite shower room, and three further bedrooms. There is, in addition, a well appointed family bathroom.

    Externally, White Cottage boasts exquisite, mature landscaped gardens and grounds to all sides.

    There is also a gated driveway and double garage. There is also a pedestrian gate leading to Braid Road and Mortonhall Golf Club which is located almost directly opposite.
