Pirn House is a fine country house built in 1861 of stone under slate roofs. It stands in a sheltered south facing position above the Gala Water, and is an ideal location for those wishing to enjoy a country lifestyle, whilst easily commutable to Edinburgh by train, car or bus. The house has been sympathetically modernised in recent years and now provides family accommodation of a very high standard. Although spacious and light, the house is easily managed and ideal for both family living and entertaining.
The reception hall forms the heart of the property with all three reception rooms leading off it.
The drawing room and dining room both face south and are elegant formal rooms. The library, with its extensive hand crafted book shelves, doubles as an informal sitting room and has French windows leading to the garden and a wood burning stove.
The kitchen is fully fitted by Smallbone of Devizes and includes an Aga and several built-in appliances. The kitchen leads into the breakfast room with space for a large table. A cloakroom, a well-equipped utility room, boot room, extensive storage space, and two larders complete the ground floor.
The master bedroom suite is situated in the south east corner of the house and has a superb en suite bathroom with a cast iron bath set in marble between four columns. The guest bedroom has an en suite bathroom and the two additional principal bedrooms are served by a dressing room with built-in wardrobes and a large family bathroom with extensive handmade cabinets.
A secondary passage leads to the 5th bedroom.
Beyond this is a further bedroom with en suite shower room. This room, which has direct access to the ground floor using the rear stairs, is ideal for use by a nanny or other member of staff.
The large outbuilding lies to the south west of the house and provides useful garaging and stabling. If required, this building could be converted into further residential accommodation subject to consent.
The gardens and grounds are an important feature of the property and the 27.5 acres provide privacy and protection. The walled garden has been carefully restored and is now mainly laid down to grass for ease of maintenance. There is a greenhouse, and formal flower and vegetable beds. The hard tennis court lies below the walled garden. There are extensive, well maintained paddocks which are ideal for grazing horses and other livestock. Amenity woodland completes this small estate.
The refurbished lodge cottage stands at the entrance to the driveway. It is a traditional single storey cottage with living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom. It has oil fired central heating and double glazing. It is ideal for letting.
