North Middleton is an attractive rural village just south of Gorebridge and adjacent to the historic hamlet of Borthwick in the rolling countryside.
Gorebridge is just over a mile away and is located approximately 11 miles to the southeast of Edinburgh city centre and offers local schooling, a good range of convenience shopping together with a variety of leisure and recreational facilities and all the usual amenities including restaurants. The area benefits from a regular public transport service operating to the city centre and neighbouring Midlothian towns and villages.
The Edinburgh City Bypass is only a short drive away and this gives direct links heading west to the M8 and Glasgow and the M9, and north over the Forth Road Bridge. Heading eastward, the Bypass connects to the A1 and the heart of East Lothian and beyond. In addition, the Borders rail link is also nearby and offers services in and out of Edinburgh.
Torcraik Court is an attractive property which dates from the 1700s but was converted by the current owner in the 1990s. The property is stone built under a pantile roof and has accommodation arranged in an L-shape over a single storey. The accommodation is very flexible and the layout of the house could be altered to suit the different needs of a buyer if required.
The everyday door is into the utility room which is adjacent to the kitchen and the driveway. The kitchen is fitted with a range of base and wall mounted units with an integrated breakfast bar, Rayburn range cooker, electric hob and double oven, dishwasher and fridge freezer. Next to the kitchen is a sun room with views on three sides over the garden and bi-folding doors to the patio. Also at this end of the house is a cosy sitting room and a formal dining room, which could also be a fifth bedroom if required.
The west wing of the property is where the principal bedroom is located; this has a built in wardrobe as well as an en suite shower room with sauna. There is a further bedroom within the west wing which has an adjacent family bathroom with sunken bath.
Set centrally in the house is a generously sized sitting room with views to the front of the house. There is also a sliding door from here out to the south facing elevated patio which has far reaching views. There are two further reception rooms beyond which have gas fireplaces and opposite are two bedrooms which share a spacious family bathroom with bath and large walk in shower. There is a capacious cupboard at the end of the hallway which houses the boiler.
The grounds to Torcraik Court are entered through a set of electric gates and at the front of the house is a large gravel parking area where in 2014, planning permission was granted for a garage to be built. The main garden is located on the southeast side of the property and is sheltered by a row of mature shrubs. It includes colourful flower beds and a centrally located pond. In addition there is a substantial terrace to the back of the house which overlooks the surrounding countryside. Beyond the main portion of garden are the ruins of an old mill which sits on the southern edge of the plot.
Beyond the boundary is additional rough ground and woodland which can be made available subject to separate negotiation.
There are two residential building plots available in addition. For more information on the building plots and asking prices, please get in touch with the selling agents.
