The semi-detached home’s front door opens into the hall, where there is a broad area for coats and shoes. On the right is the open-plan living and dining room. This elegant space is divided into two distinct zones, with the living area framed by a handsome, wall-mounted gas fire and fronted by a large picture window for natural light. It offers a sizeable footprint for a good selection of lounge furniture. An open archway leads into the dining room, creating an airy dual aspect and a sociable flow of accommodation. Here, there is ample room for a large dining table. The kitchen, which is conveniently accessed from the dining room or the hall, is fitted with light timber-toned cabinets and contrasting black granite-style worktops. The modern design is finished with under-cabinet lighting and a range of appliances, including: an integrated gas hob, electric oven, and dishwasher, and an undercounter washing machine. Space for a freestanding fridge-freezer is incorporated.
A carpeted staircase leads up from the hall to the landing, where there is useful storage and the three bedrooms. At the front of the home, the first bedroom is a generous double, further supplemented by built-in storage. Bedroom two is also a spacious double, enjoying a rear garden outlook, whilst the front-facing third bedroom is a large single with a built-in wardrobe. Completing the home is a bright bathroom with a modern three-piece suite, including an overhead shower. An efficient gas central heating system and double glazed windows ensure year round comfort.
Outside, the rear garden enjoys a good-size lawn and a south-westerly aspect. The property offers extensive off-street parking for multiple cars, including a detached single garage and a long monoblock driveway.
The former mining town of Loanhead enjoys an easy-going lifestyle expected of a small town, yet within easy reach of the capital. The town’s centre is home to everyday amenities such as convenience stores, a Post Office, a pharmacy, a bank, beauty salons, a butcher’s shop, and a number of pubs and takeaways. Straiton Retail Park is within convenient walking distance too. Outdoor pursuits include: Straiton Pond Local Nature Reserve just a stone’s throw from the town, Pentland Hills Regional Park and Midlothian Snowsports Centre just over a 10-minute drive away. Loanhead Leisure Centre and Pool features a swimming pool and toddler pool, a gym, and fitness classes, plus a soft play, a crèche, a café and a library. The town offers education at three primary schools, Loanhead, Paradykes, and St Margaret’s RC Primary schools, with secondary schooling provided at nearby Lasswade High School. Loanhead is popular with commuters owing to its close proximity to the City Bypass, A1, and M8/M9 motorway networks, as well as excellent bus links across the county and into the city centre.
