About this property

  • The Gate House is an incredibly well designed two bedroom cottage in the highly sought after area of Colinton. Built circa 1780 and now completely remodelled for luxury modern living, the property has been lovingly maintained and upgraded by the current owners including the addition of a contemporary extension to the rear, creating a tranquil living space that flows beautifully into the sunny patio garden.

    The property enjoys a private main door entrance that opens onto an impressive double height entrance hallway with a Velux window, filling the space with natural light. The principal bedroom is a spacious double room with dual aspect windows, ample built-in storage, and plantation shutters. A further double bedroom also enjoys a dual aspect with plantation shutters, striking the perfect balance between light and privacy. Both bedrooms are decorated in a calming palette of colours with enviable ceiling heights. The bathroom is fitted with Duravit appliances including a rainfall shower and oversized bath tub, waterfall bath and sink faucets, and is decorated with Porcelanosa tiles throughout.

    The open plan kitchen/living/dining room is a clever use of space, which enjoys an abundance of natural light through the skylight and generous full length glazing. The wood burning stove and floor to ceiling curtains create the perfect cosy environment for the colder months. This is a wonderful space to entertain and relax in all year round, with an impressive in-ceiling surround sound system installed throughout. The kitchen is of contemporary design and includes integrated appliances including Siemens hob & oven, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer.

    The triple bi-fold doors open onto an attractive granite patio to the rear of the cottage with a tensioned waterproof awning, offering cover over ample space for outdoor furniture and al fresco dining. There is a wood fired outdoor oven and log store which adds to the wonderfully welcoming feeling that this space offers. There are also conveniently installed power sockets. An 8ft cedar fence surrounds the outdoor space providing both privacy and mood lighting.
