Purdie & Co are delighted to bring to market this truly impressive, listed building, Clermiston Mains (also known as Buttercup Farm), originally the main farmhouse of this area. It is tucked away in a tranquil, private road within the attractive residential area of Clermiston to the West of Edinburgh. It has substantial mature garden grounds covering approximately an acre.
The house has generously proportioned rooms and has retained many of the original features such as the solid oak wood panelling in the hall, the exposed ceiling beams in the dining room, fireplaces in the public rooms and main bedrooms, radiators screened behind brass grilles, wash handbasins in all bedrooms and a fully working bell system to summon domestic staff. All rooms apart from one bedroom have a southerly orientation and are thus flooded with natural light in favourable weather. The brand-new central heating boiler is housed in the garden boiler room. There is also a lockable metal garden shed included in the sale.
A separate garage, the original stable, with stairs leading up to a large storeroom, is available to purchase by negotiation if desired. There is also an opportunity to purchase the attached two-bedroom housekeeper’s flat, currently let – a perfect granny flat or office space with its own parking area for 2 cars. The garden belongs to the main house. The present owners have allowed their tenants access to the garden, but this is totally at the discretion of the owners of the main house.
By appointment with Purdie & Co. 0131 346 7240.
