An exceptional house with magnificent views over open countryside.

Beech Tree Cottage is an exceptional contemporary house which occupies a wonderful position, overlooking open countryside and the hills beyond. The house was completed in 2011. The design is contemporary, unique and ideal for modern living, with bright, spacious and well-proportioned accommodation, extending to 2,034 sq ft. The finish is excellent, with a Kitchens International kitchen, fitted with Seimens appliances and there is an integrated sound system in the sitting room, kitchen and master bedroom. The layout is flexible and while there are currently three bedrooms, the formal dining room could easily be converted into a fourth. The master bedroom is the only first floor accommodation and is an exceptional, spacious suite, with a large en suite shower room and a dressing room. The principal accommodation, with the exception of the dining room, faces south and benefits from the magnificent far-reaching views.

Outside, the property is set within a charming landscaped garden. There is ample parking space and a double garage with electric doors. Two separate paths lead to the back of the house, one being skirted by box ball hedging and shrub beds. Above this are five mature beech trees, which give the property its name. At the front of the house there is a terrace with a patio, area ideal for outside dining. There is a large lawn and flower beds and adjacent to the house. To the side of the house is a beech wood, which is steep sided and leads down to a burn. This is a communal area shared amongst the other proprietors in the development.


Beech Tree Cottage is situated on the southern periphery of this exclusive residential development. The house is very well situated for access to the Edinburgh City Bypass and the city centre. The bypass is approximately 11 miles to the north, linking with the airport (20 miles) and the motorway network. The city centre is 16 ½ miles to the north.

The conservation village of West Linton (2 miles to the south) has a good range of local shops and services, including a post office, a nursery, a primary school and tennis, golf and bowling clubs and restaurants. Penicuik (7 miles) has a wider range of facilities. The private schools, professional, recreational and cultural facilities of Edinburgh are also within easy reach. The Straiton retail park is just beyond Penicuik including Next, IKEA, Costco, M&S food hall and other supermarkets.

The recreational facilities in the immediate area are excellent. Hillend dry ski slope is off the A702 on the near side of the bypass. There are a number of local golf courses including, Glencorse and a renowned 18 whole course in West Linton. The walking in the Pentland Hills Regional Park is spectacular and trout fishing can be taken some Pentland reservoirs. Peebles has become a centre for mountain biking, and is some 16 miles to the south east.


From Edinburgh, take the A702 south towards Biggar. Pass through Carlops and about ¾ mile after the village, towards the end of a long straight, turn left onto Rutherford Castle Drive. Follow the road down into the development and Beech Tree Cottage will be found at the end of the road on the left.
