Cluny House is a luxury detached modern country house, in a semi-rural location, set in approximately half an acre. The property has been architecturally designed to fit in with its location, whilst taking advantage of the stunning views over the surrounding countryside, offering generous and flexible family accommodation over two floors.
To the front of the house, double glass doors give access to a bright, well proportioned dining/family room, perfect for family living and entertaining. Double doors lead through to a spacious living room with a feature marble fireplace and double height windows, giving stunning views over the garden and surrounding countryside. A further pair of double doors opens into the rear sitting room which offers additional living space, with French doors onto the garden. The room would also lend itself to being a bedroom, as it benefits from access to a shower room. The breakfasting kitchen is finished to a high standard and benefits from modern fitted appliances, a Rangemaster, Belfast sink and a useful utility room, both with French doors leading out to the rear garden. A boiler room is located off the dining/family room and gives access to the double garage.
Upstairs, a spacious landing gives access to the master bedroom, with built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms, a spacious family bathroom and a gallery lounge/study which sits over the living room and boasts fine views over the front garden and countryside.
Externally the property is accessed via a private gravelled drive off the main road, with wooden double gates leading to a parking area and double garage with electronically operated door.
The landscaped gardens extend to both front and rear of the house, and offer a particularly generous and private outdoor space. To the front a meandering pathway leads through the woodland garden, with a Summerhouse and sunny patio ideal for alfresco dining. To the rear of the house there is a fenced garden which is laid to lawn and has matured borders.
Cluny House is situated on the outskirts of the charming conservation village of Howgate which lies between the Pentland and Moorfoot Hills. Set in the heart of the Midlothian countryside, the location provides the best of both worlds, with all the benefits of a rural environment, whilst being perfectly placed for access to Edinburgh city centre, all major road networks and Edinburgh International Airport.
Much of the focus of the village surrounds the village hall which has many community events throughout the year, whilst the Howgate Pub & Restaurant, which has built up an enviable reputation throughout the years as a fine eatery and hostelry, is a short walk away.
Penicuik is the nearest large town, approximately 2 miles from Howgate, and provides superb local amenities including local shops, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, and leisure facilities. Excellent local schooling is available at nursery, primary and secondary level. Further out of town shopping can be found at nearby Straiton Retail Park. There is also easy access to the popular town of Peebles and the rest of the beautiful Scottish Borders. With its rolling hills and woodlands the area is renowned for its outdoor activities.
