Joanne Hedley Keller Williams is delighted to bring to the market this rarely available bright and spacious two bedroomed detached cottage with double garage and large garden located in the open countryside of Roslin.

Rose Cottage benefits from an extensive garden, as well as a small front garden and rear patio for outdoor dining. A double garage, small conservatory, farmhouse style kitchen, two good sized bedrooms, office space, gas central heating and full double glazing throughout.

With immense character, this detached stone-built cottage set over two floors retains much of its original period features and charm, complimented by contemporary renovation. The private entrance opens to a vestibule leading on to the second bedroom, family bathroom, sitting room, kitchen/diner and bright and airy office space with the master bedroom enjoying the whole of the upper floor.

The cosy sitting room is set to the front of the property and enjoys country views with double windows that flood the space with natural light. The area features traditional stone walls, a log burning Charnwood stove and is finished with upcycled gymnasium maple wood flooring. The pleasant open aspect gives direct access to the kitchen/dining room.

The bright kitchen is fitted with farmhouse style base and wall units complemented with light worktops, splash back and a Belfast sink. The kitchen is spacious and practical with its farmhouse range cooker, cooker hood, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine all included in the sale. From here there is a small conservatory leading out to the enclosed patio area with paddock views, which is perfect for alfresco entertaining during the warmer months.

Located to the front of the property is a second bedroom, with an understair cupboard and space for free standing furniture. Further, there is a small room located to the back of the property which is ideal for the home office. From this room there is a sycamore staircase framed in glass and oak, leading you upstairs to the converted loft, which houses the master bedroom. The master boasts a wonderful Roslin sunrise aspect over garden views with ample floor space finished in maple, with a triple-aspect walk-in dressing room area.

Finally, the family bathroom on the ground floor comprises a three-piece suite with shower over the bath, electrically-heated slate flooring, heated towel rail, and bespoke lighting design.

The cottage has existing full planning approval for single-storey extension. Please enquire about details.

Early viewing is advised.


An important feature of the cottage is the outdoor area; a beautifully maintained front rose garden, rear patio and a landscaped garden with well stocked beds, reed pond, decked areas, double garage, tool shed and a powered storage shed. The setting is idyllic as it is bounded by a small horse paddock and natural woodlands towards Dryden Tower and Langhill Farm.


The charming Midlothian village of Roslin lies in the shadow of the Pentland Hills and is famous for its 15th century Rosslyn Chapel. Roslin is well within commuting distance of Edinburgh's city centre, yet its peaceful location offers a complete contrast to city dwelling. There are a few shops on hand to cater for every day needs, with a superb range of shopping outlets available at the impressive Straiton Retail Park including Marks & Spencer, Sainsburys, ASDA (24 hours) and IKEA. The open countryside promises hours of pleasure from activities such as pony trekking and hill walking, and the Hillend Ski Slope is also closeby. Schooling is well represented from nursery to senior level. For the commuter there is easy access to the city bypass and a multiple bus routes operate through the village, to and from Edinburgh and further afield.


All carpets, floor coverings, blinds, light fittings and the white goods are included in the sale.

The hot tub and powered container situated in the garden are available for sale subject to separate negotiation.

There is also the option to purchase the remaining gymnasium maple flooring to complete the extension as was intended.
