This beautifully converted steading building offers a remarkably spacious 3 double bedroom, 2 public room detached character cottage located in the rural village of Elsrickle which sits on Blackmount Hill on the edge of the Pentland Hills. Situated on the A721 c.19 miles from Edinburgh city bypass, c.23 miles to the M8 at Newhouse and with rail links nearby at Carstairs and Lanark, this lovely home offers a village location with easy access to the cities and beyond.  

Converted in keeping with the character of the steading, there is parking to the right-hand side of the property adjacent to the large double garage and a pathway and steps leading to the side and main entrances.  There is also access between the steading and the adjacent building to the left leading to the main entrance.  At the main entrance double doors lead into the vestibule which is a useful space for boots having tiled flooring.  A double-glazed door leads from here into the hallway which gives a lovely warm welcome into the property and a feel for the character of the home.  There is super storage in the hallway with a large walk-in cupboard which has hanging and shelving space.  The lounge is a cosy room which exudes the charm of a country cottage with a stone fireplace with an open fire, there is also an archway through to the dining room.  The kitchen is a real heart to the home with ample space for dining and relaxing too.  Retaining the original country style wall and base units, electric  hob, double oven and extractor, there is a large picture window looking onto the courtyard and access through to the rear hallway where there is lots of space for practicalities to be taken care of with the large utility room, airing cupboard, cloakroom w.c. and a door to the side.

The two bedrooms on the ground floor are both good sized double bedrooms, both of which have built-in wardrobes.  The bathroom is finished in keeping with the character of the home with a white three-piece white suite and part tiled walls.

The upper level offers a super study / reading space on the landing and a large double bedroom.  There is also the really useful additional walk-in loft space which is floored and could potentially offer the option for further conversion subject to consents.

Externally to the front there is the courtyard which offers additional parking if wished, with a pathway leading to the side where there is further private parking leading to the large double garage which has great storage.

A charming property in a lovely village location.

Elsrickle is a small, charming Scottish village. It lies 4 miles North-East of the former market town of Biggar and boasts a new Primary School, Black Mount Primary which is a short walking distance from The Steading and secondary education in Biggar
As well as offering rural bliss, Biggar is a thriving former market town situated a stone’s throw from the Scottish Borders. It has long been a popular commute for those seeking country living within easy access of the City Centre. Biggar is just 28 miles from Edinburgh and 39 from Glasgow and is well located for access to the M8, M9, M74 and both Edinburgh and Glasgow International Airports.

The bustling High Street boasts an excellent range of general stores, speciality retail outlets, cafes and restaurants. Biggar has a golf course, boating pond and tennis courts, along with well-patronised bowling and rugby clubs. Whatever your interest there are various clubs and associations ranging from bridge to theatre workshop, music to rambling, as well as the prize-winning Biggar and Upper Clydesdale Museum. Biggar also boasts the famous Purves Puppet Theatre and the popular, family-friendly, Biggar Little Festival which is held in October. The surrounding countryside provides almost limitless opportunities for fishing, hillwalking, trail running and mountain biking, (the nearby Glentress Forest is a mountain biking mecca).

For education, there is a thriving and popular toddler group, as well as both primary and secondary schools.
