Nestled at the foot of the Pentland Hills, in the hamlet of Silverburn, this substantial four-bedroom, three-bathroom detached house enjoys a peaceful setting, with picturesque open views, just ten miles from the heart of Edinburgh. This exceptionally generous family home boasts impeccable modern interiors, a secluded landscaped garden, a private driveway, and a detached single garage.
The double front door opens into a large vestibule leading into an impressive wood-floored reception hall. To the left of the hall, a large, yet homely living room awaits. Benefiting from the afternoon sun, courtesy of a dual-aspect outlook including garden-facing French doors, the wood-floored living room is presented in a warmly-toned colour palette and arranged around a magnificent inglenook fireplace housing a log-burning stove. Next door, an equally remarkable triple-aspect kitchen incorporates a seated dining area, a central breakfasting island, and bi-folding doors (with handsome wood shutters) seamlessly extending the space into the garden. Offset by sage green walls, the kitchen is fitted with a wide collection of stylish wood-toned cabinets paired with durable granite and wood-styled worktops and built-in downlighting. A comprehensive range of integrated goods comprises an eye-level microwave and a double oven/grill, a fridge freezer, a coffee machine and a dishwasher, whilst the island unit accommodates an integrated ceramic hob with a chimney-style hood and a sink with a hose tap. An adjoining utility room, with external access, built-in storage, and a clothes pulley, provides space and plumbing for laundry appliances. Also located on the ground floor a is a dual-aspect, multi-purpose home office.
On the first floor, an airy galleried landing (with access to a partially-floored loft) leads to four generous, neutrally-decorated double bedrooms. The front-facing bedrooms are favourably southwest-facing, whilst those quietly set to the rear, including the master, yield open country views. Accentuated by stylish accent wallpaper, the master bedroom is luxuriously accompanied by a dressing room and an en-suite shower room complete with a WC-suite, outstanding vanity storage, an illuminated wall-mounted mirror, and a large shower enclosure with a chic metro-tiled surround. The remaining bedrooms include two supplemented by fitted wardrobes and another accompanied by a spacious en-suite shower room. Finally, a stunning family bathroom completes the accommodation on offer. Illuminated by triple windows and decorated in warm ochre, coupled with striking contemporary wall tiles, the bathroom is appointed with a wall-hung WC and basin with a vanity unit, a chrome towel radiator, a deluxe walk-in shower enclosure with a rainfall showerhead, and an exquisite freestanding claw-foot bathtub. The property benefits from an oil-fuelled central heating system (with a boiler fitted in 2015) and double glazing throughout.
Externally, the home is hugged by lawns to the front and side, and, to the rear, enjoys a recently landscaped split-level garden (with a shed) overlooking unspoilt countryside. Private parking for up to four vehicles is provided by a front driveway and a detached single garage, with an electric door and solar panels on the roof producing an average annual income of £914 on a 25-year agreement from 2011.
