Delightful Detached Victorian period property - Property PR

A stone-built former blacksmith’s with views of the rolling Pentland and Moorfoot Hills is now on sale.

Built in the 1840’s, The Smithy comes complete with a large barn to the rear and gives buyers a unique opportunity to set up home in a historic property with great space and character.

Situated on the outskirts of Gorebridge, this three bedroom, four bathroom property has a large, sleek kitchen with seamless floor level storage allowing space for a tasteful dining area.

After giving the spacious house a fresh update, the master bedroom has a discrete en-suite shower room behind a glass brick wall partition.

The property is on the market with Warners Solicitors & Estate Agents for offers over £395,000.

George Forsyth, current owner of The Smithy, said: “I’ve lived in the property for a number of years after purchasing it from a good friend.

“The panoramic views through the windows are just the perfect thing to wake up to on the weekend – it’s such a peaceful setting.

“The barn at the rear of the property comes complete with an inspection pit – it’s pretty much the dream space for those who are into playing with their cars but is also great for those just looking for some additional storage.

“I’m sad to be leaving the property but it has served its purpose for my family and we are ready for a new adventure.”

The Smithy has recently been upgraded, seeing the kitchen and bathrooms completely renovated in 2018 – though traditional features, such as its exposed stone fireplace with wood burning stove have been preserved to maintain the property’s character and charm.

One of the most striking features of the property is its 27ft living room featuring original ceiling beams, there is also access leading to the multi-purpose conservatory.

Buyers can also enjoy the large south facing garden to one side of the property which can be accessed via the patio doors in the conservatory and there is also a substantial paddock area approximately 1/3 of an acre on the other side of the house.

April Harper, Warner’s Property Team, said: “The Smithy is a perfect base for families looking for generous space and an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life, while still maintaining terrific transport connections.

“The property has been finished to a high specification and standard, with contemporary interior and eye-catching finishing touches that makes the place feel effortlessly stylish.”

Midlothian has a range of services to offer potential buyers including shops, school, medical services, leisure centre and good quality restaurants – with both the A7 and A68 on the doorstep it’s just a 35 minute drive from bustling Edinburgh.
