Dating back to 1790, Brae Cottage has been transformed by recent renovations to offer modern open plan accommodation while retaining plenty of charm and character. The stone exterior has been retained, but internally the property has been stylishly remodelled to offer spacious bedrooms and contemporary living spaces.
Entering the property, a double height hallway with feature wood panelling and engineered wood flooring offers a bright and airy welcome. Straight ahead is the first of three spacious double bedrooms, with views over the garden and of the Queensferry Crossing. This bedroom leads into the large en suite with walk in shower, WC, two basins and heated towel rack.
From the entrance hall, a glazed door offers a glimpse into the modern kitchen with lounge area. The kitchen features a large island with induction hob and hidden extractor, along with fitted base units which include a Belfast sink, oven and storage. Fitted floor to wall units complete the kitchen area and house the boiler and provide space for an integrated fridge. The engineered wood flooring has been carried through from the hall, and seamlessly blends the kitchen into the lounge and dining area. Here floor to ceiling double glazed sliding patio doors lead out onto a decked terrace. Cleverly concealed amongst the kitchen fitted floor to ceiling units is a hidden entrance to the rest of the downstairs accommodation, which includes a utility area, cloakroom and home office.
A wooden staircase leads up from the entrance hall to the first floor landing. To the left of landing is a bathroom with walk in shower and freestanding bath placed under the window to enjoy the view of the nearby tree canopy. Two double bedrooms make up the rest of the accommodation on this level, with convenient eaves storage located off the landing.
Outside, a stone wall delineates the boundary of the property and separates the property from the road. A single garage with pitched roof offers plenty of workspace and further storage, with space for two vehicles on the driveway outside. A side gate leads to the rear garden which comprises lawn, a decked terrace and a stepped garden area.
From the M90, take the exit at 1B. If coming from the south, take the third exit on the roundabout for Hope Street. If approaching from the north, take the first exit at the roundabout for Hope Street. Pass through the first two sets of lights, passing under the bridge. Take the next right, under the tunnel, and follow the road up the hill. At the give way sign at the end of Ferryhill Road, continue straight passing under the rail bridge and continue down the hill. Brae Cottage is the first property on the right hand side; there is parking available in front of the garage.
