Originally a single storey Victorian cottage built around 1850, this beautiful and characterful property was extended in the 1940s with a two storey extension. The result is a unique property which offers spacious and flexible living accommodation – perfect for a family home, a buy-to-let opportunity or a hybrid; with the option of separating a holiday-let annexe from the main accomodation.

Internally, the accommodation is made up of four double bedrooms, a bathroom, a showerroom, two lounges, a dining kitchen and a large entrance hall. There are substantial storage cupboards throughout the property. Outside, the property benefits from a private south-west facing garden set to the side of the house, and access over a large shared National Trust courtyard. There is also a good sized garage and space to park two cars at the front of the property. With relevant consents, future owners could convert the garage into additional living space with direct access to the garden. While Balerno itself is a Special Conservation Area and neighbouring properties are listed, Malleny Croft House itself is not.

Malleny Croft House is minutes walk away from Balerno village high street, on a lane with minimal traffic in a National Trust Estate. On the doorstep are numerous acres of unspoilt woodland and off-road access from the lane to the Pentland Hills. Within the National Trust estate itself is Malleny House which dates back to the 17th Century. Malleny Gardens, which is directly accessed via the garden, is open to the public and has a 3 acre walled garden area. With a range of excellent amenities close at hand the property would make an ideal family home in a semi-rural location.
