Recently completed and superbly renovated Traditional stone-built family home with large open plan living spaces and generous bedrooms with dramatic views to the Pentland Hills.
Templevale has recently been completely refurbished and fully renovated from bare stone throughout, to create a virtually brand new four bed family home close to Penicuik, Straiton Park retail centre and the City Bypass; thus combining rural living with easy access to local amenities as well those of Edinburgh, its airport and main travel networks.
The beautiful exterior stonework has been 100% cleaned and repointed in traditional lime mortar which exemplifies the traditional character of the village and guarantees preservation. Inside however, the fittings and décor are contemporary within generously proportioned open plan spaces that are full of light and that offer a wide variety of furnishing configurations.
The main door opens up from the front of the property into a modern kitchen/dining/living area, lit by front windows as well as large bi-fold doors that in turn open up to a spacious terrace and a large rear garden. The kitchen has a central cooking and dining island that leaves ample space for a flexible configuration of living and/or dining furniture and a wood burning stove for cosy winter evenings.
Adjacent to the kitchen on the right hand side, is a large utility room with rear door access to and external walkways and a secure garage with remote-controlled roller-door. The utility room has washing and drying utilities, a utility sink and a separate ground floor shower room with WC and basin. Everything throughout is new.
To the left of the open plan kitchen area is wall dividing the north and south wings. Beyond this there is a staircase leading to the bedrooms on the first floor and beyond that, a very sizeable living room that mirrors the space in the dining/kitchen area and features a second set of bi-fold doors opening on to the large patios and rear garden. Three further windows overlook the front garden and create a naturally light-filled room with dramatic garden and countryside views on both sides.
On the first floor, a generously sized principal suite is located in the North wing with dual aspect windows overlooking front and rear gardens and featuring an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, WC and basin. Three further double bedrooms are accessed from the landing, two of which have dedicated space for either fitted wardrobes or fitted work desks. These areas also have wall-fitted cat 5/6 cabling. Also accessible from the landing is a large family bathroom with a free-standing bath, a large washbasin and WC. Both the principal bedroom and the first floor landing are lit by full height windows offering uninterrupted garden and countryside views.
Outside, the property benefits form the tremendous amenity of very large rear and side gardens. The garden, which offers privacy, has been recently fenced and landscaped. It is laid to lawn and incorporates many mature trees as well as many new trees and a variety of new and mature Beech, Hawthorne and Laurel hedging. The garden offers easy maintenance in its current form or unlimited opportunities for the enthusiast to further develop.
Between the house and garden is a large terrace area with two electrically lit-patios offering tremendous opportunities for outside dining and entertaining. There are hardstanding areas at the north and the south of the property as well as a drive-through gravel driveway. Altogether there is parking for at least 4 cars. All exterior retaining walls have been rebuilt with several featuring beautiful traditional sandstone.
