Description

Located on the outskirts of Dalkeith, in the small hamlet of Whitehill village just south of Edinburgh, you’ll find the beautiful "Kingsview House". With the name inspired from what is arguably one of the best vantage points from which to see the whole of the city to the north including Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat and the Firth of Forth across to the Kingdom of Fife; it’s simply stunning!
Entering the home, you will be immediately struck with the standard of finish and presentation created in this fabulous home away from home. An internal door leads from the living room to the dining kitchen with bi-fold doors opening to the rear garden and patio where that view can be enjoyed. The luxury kitchen has been fitted with the appliances you’d expect and likely more. There are a few nice surprise touches that you’ll find as you explore the property which save a journey back to the kitchen. The bathroom on the ground floor is not only the main one of the house but it’s also a feature. With a four piece suite including a stand alone shower with multiple jets and steam facility - it’ll most definitely wake you up of a morning! One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor. Double in size, the room provides its own wall mounted TV and has a kingsize bed. Upstairs, the remaining three bedrooms are all kitted out as double rooms, one has a kingsize bed and would be considered the main bedroom as there is an en-suite shower room. Another room, to the rear enjoys a Parisian balcony to enjoy the view over the city and perhaps ponder the day’s adventure. The last bedroom is also fitted as a double. The upstairs bedrooms have a lovely shower room so there’s no need to go downstairs nor share the en-suite.
The features continues outside where on a nice day and evening you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking you were on some sort of Mediterranean terrace with a fire burning in the chimenea. The former outbuilding has been converted to a home bar for those family celebrations - there’s even a cocktail guide on the wall and a separate ice machine. Located minutes from the City of Edinburgh bypass, this property has the perfect location to not only explore the immediate area but venture north, east, south or west taking advantage of Scotland’s excellent road and motorway network.

About the local area

The magnificent architecture and unique atmosphere of Edinburgh is known the world over; an elegant sophisticated city that draws visitors from around the globe who come to soak up its rich history and enjoy its ascetic grandeur. Beyond the city, the Lothian countryside provides a beautiful setting of rural towns and villages and miles of coastline with fine sandy beaches.

Edinburgh is Scotland's inspiring capital city which is both very historic and extremely cosmopolitan. The city is perched on a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags rising above the rather flat landscape of the Lothians and has a sheltered northern shoreline along the Firth of Forth. The castle dominates the city centre and from its ramparts you can look down on narrow medieval streets, sweeping Georgian terraces and award winning modern architecture. Spend some time in Edinburgh's museums and galleries to learn of the cities fascinating past, or walk down Princes Street for the ultimate shopping experience. The city has no shortage of excellent restaurants, modern contemporary bars and traditional Old Town pubs.

Rural Mid-Lothian is one of the hilliest parts of the region with the Pentland chain to the west and the Moorfoots to the east. Places of interest here include Dalkeith Country Park and Montagu Bridge over the River North Esk, with natural woodland that is home to foxes, deer and a variety of other animals and birds.

East Lothian has forty miles of coastline and picturesque towns and villages that range from traditional seaside towns such as Dunbar and North Berwick to country towns like Haddington, with quaint streets, speciality shops and a good selection of cafés and restaurants. This stretch of coastline from Mussleburgh to Dunbar has plenty of long golden sandy beaches and some very testing top-class links golf courses including Gullane and North Berwick.

Also well worth a visit on this coast is the award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre at North Berwick. Here visitors can watch gannets, puffins, seals and dolphins from interactive cameras and take boat trips to along the coast.
