DESCRIPTION
Hill Cottage is a delightful, single storey cottage, in a private rural setting in the shelter of the Pentland Hills.

The house is reached via a shared private farm road from Boghall Farm. Set within its own garden grounds, an area of hard standing in front of the house leads via a garden gate to the welcoming front door. To the front of the property there is a cosy sitting room overlooking the front garden. Off here is a door to the kitchen, which has a range of fitted units, a window to the side and a door to the back garden. The bathroom, off here, has a bath with shower over, wash basin and w.c. There are two good sized bedrooms including a double bedroom with windows on two sides, and a further bedroom with views to the rear.

Outside is a good sized, easily maintained enclosed garden, which is mainly laid to lawn, and offers lovely views to the north, east and west over the Pentland hills.

The property now requires upgrading but has the potential to create a delightful home.

GENERAL
Hill Cottage is located to the south west of Edinburgh, on the edge of the Pentlands Regional Park. It benefits from a private rural setting whilst still being extremely well placed for access to the city centre.

The A720 City Bypass (about 1 mile) offers connections to Edinburgh Airport and the central Scotland motorway network. Penicuik, about 4 miles to the south, has excellent local facilities and there are further local services at Rosslyn (around 3 miles). Out of town shopping can be found at The Gyle Shopping Centre and Straiton Retail Park, which also has a park and ride facility. There are regular bus services into Edinburgh city centre. The extensive shopping, commercial, cultural and leisure amenities provided by Scotland's capital city are all within easy reach.

The surrounding area offers a wonderful array of activities for the outdoor enthusiast. The miles of beautiful countryside are ideal for walking, cycling and horseriding. The Pentlands Regional Park, a mecca for hillwalking enthusiasts, is on the doorstep, with a walking trail leading from the cottage to nearby Allermuir Hill. There is an outdoor Ski Centre at Hillend. A range of golf courses include at nearby Swanston and Glencorse, and world class facilities such as the Open Championship course at Muirfield a little further afield. The East Lothian coastline is famed for its beautiful sandy beaches, whilst to the south, the Scottish Borders offer further opportunities for rural pursuits.
