About this property

  • Built in 1988, Orchardbank's name is derived from its origins as the orchard that once belonged to neighbouring Calderbank House.

    A few steps lead up to the front door, framed by windows allowing plenty of natural light to filter through to a vestibule. The space provides fantastic storage with a generously sized integrated cloak store. An internal glass door leads into the welcoming entrance hall.

    To the right of the hall is a modern Bulthaup kitchen with a wide range of integrated Gaggenau appliances including dishwasher, two ovens, electric hob, washing machine and fridge. The base units provide copious amounts of storage, which is further supplemented by the pantry across the hall. The kitchen looks out onto the front of the property, and provides access to the garden from a side door.

    A dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and provides a fantastic entertaining space, with a large window overlooking the garden. Internal French doors open onto the sitting room. With dual aspect windows overlooking the garden and down to the river, the sitting room is a comfortable and well-lit space. French doors lead onto the paved dining area outside.
    The sitting room is also accessed from the hallway, where a shower room and large airing cupboard with hot water tank are also found.

    Further down the hall, three well proportioned double bedrooms with integrated wardrobe space are all located, two overlooking the front of the garden, and one overlooking the rear. The master bedroom is located at the end of the hallway and features integrated wardrobes with floor to ceiling mirror doors. The en suite bathroom has recently been re-modelled to feature a large bathtub and double basin with large recessed vanity cabinet above. Behind the basins is a large walk in rain head shower, and a WC. The en suite benefits from underfloor heating.

    The property is accessed from Pumpherston Road, and is set behind a high stone wall which provides privacy and a quieter environment. The recessed entrance in the stone wall opens up onto a paved area leading all the way up to the property. There is a space to the left for multiple cars to be parked, as well as a generously sized double garage with workshop space to the rear.

    To the right of the property, a south-facing landscaped garden wraps around to the east side and incorporates a small pond, and paved seating area. Hedges provide privacy and a boundary line to the rear of the property.

The exterior photography does not do this house justice and we highly recommend viewing. It is in a secluded spot, close to the country park and with great transport links so ideal for the commuter.

Local information

  • Nestled in the pretty conservation area of Mid Calder, Orchardbank sits on top of a gentle hill overlooking the Linhouse Water, which feeds into the River Almond. The river flows through to the Almondell & Calderwood Country Park to the south, which offers a fantastic range of scenic walks, cycle paths and riding trails.
  • Orchardbank enjoys excellent access to both Edinburgh, Glasgow and north of the Forth via the Forth Road Bridge. Convenient access to Junction 3 of the M8 is approximately 4 miles away, with Edinburgh International Airport (8 miles) and the business parks on the western periphery of Edinburgh within easy reach. Rail connections are also excellent, with commuter stations at Uphall and Kirknewton offering frequent services to both cities.
  • The area is well served by local playgroups, nurseries, primary and secondary schools, while transport to most of the independent Edinburgh schools is available nearby. There is a thriving village community providing social groups for all the family.
  • The village provides a good range of local facilities, pubs, post office and restaurants. Nearby Livingston provides extensive shopping facilities in three shopping malls, the designer outlet, supermarkets including M&S, restaurants, coffee shops and leisure facilities such as gyms and a multi-screen cinema. The Gyle shopping centre is only a short drive away on the western periphery and of course Edinburgh with its rich cultural life is easily accessible.
