Spacious and rare equestrian property situated on the edge of Edinburgh
Situated within close proximity to Edinburgh, 164 Woodhall Road is perfectly located for all the services and amenities offered by the city, while enjoying the peaceful and idyllic countryside on the edge of the Water of Leith.
The historic village of Colinton is situated close to the south west of the city, and from the city bypass has easy access to Edinburgh Airport (7.7 miles), and into the city centre via Colinton Road. The village is well served by a medical centre, local shops, restaurants and excellent schooling at the highly regarded Bonaly Primary School. A range of independent schooling is easily accessible within Edinburgh. The picturesque village of Juniper Green is located a short walk away, over the Water of Leith.
The Pentland Hills, to the south of the property, provide a spectacular backdrop for walkers and horse-riders. To the north, The Water of Leith walkway leads all the way into the city centre with delightful country walks immediately accessible.
Within the city centre, there is a diverse and extensive range of services and amenities in addition to the rich cultural offerings. Both the airport and train stations provide excellent transport links and ensure the city is an easily accessible destination.
A modern property, 164 Woodhall Road offers spacious and light accommodation set over two floors.
The entrance vestibule leads into a large hall, which serves as the hub of the house, with two of the bedrooms, family bathroom and wine store accessed to the left. Both bedrooms feature en suite shower rooms and fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has a door to the rear garden.
A spacious sitting room and large kitchen/breakfast room are located on the right side of the hall. The sitting room features a wood burning stove, dual aspect windows and French doors onto the front deck and garden. The kitchen/breakfast room, which has ample room for a table and chairs, is fitted with a range of base and wall units, a Rangemaster cooker, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is a glazed door to the rear garden and a door to the utility room which provides base and wall units, laundry facilities and central heating boiler. A cloakroom and store room lead down to the hall, where a dining room, with dual aspect and glazed doors to both front and rear gardens, is located. Stairs lead up to the first floor where there are two further double bedrooms and a shower room. There is also access to the large floored attic covering the main part of the property.
There is an integral double garage with water and electricity as well as an extensive parking area with room for up to ten vehicles. A decked area/outside veranda wraps around the front of the property. This leads to the beautifully landscaped front gardens with areas of lawn, mature flowerbeds, shrubs and fruit trees. The enclosed rear garden is principally laid to lawn with planted borders and children's play area.
Separate pedestrian and vehicular gates lead past an all season surfaced area for equestrian use towards the stable courtyard. Here there are ten loose boxes, three foaling stables, a feed room, laundry, office/tack room and WC facilities. The stable yard is currently being used as part of the active cattery business but can easily be returned to its original equestrian use. Further outbuildings include a hay barn.
The property also offers an established purpose built boarding cattery comprising 20 chalets with both indoor and outdoor individual accommodation.
From the yard a roadway leads through double locked gates, over the public pathway, to a pasture field. Within the field, extending to approximately six acres, there is a hard-standing car park area and the remainder is grass. There is a water supply and electricity. Additionally there are fishing rights on The Water of Leith.
