The Findhorn – a luxurious four/five-bedroom detached villa nestled in the Midlothian countryside has been conceived to blend effortlessly into its scenic setting.
Positioned behind a charming front garden and a canopy-covered porch, the front door opens into the generous vestibule, where rich solid oak flooring paired with muted-sage tones immediately exudes a classic, country-home feel.
At the heart of the home, the sensational open-plan living area is flooded with natural light from spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows, which provide stunning views of the garden, bringing the leafy outdoors in. Neatly tucked along the far wall, the sleek kitchen comprises an array of crisp white cabinets framed by grey stone-effect worktops, plus a full complement of integrated appliances.
A perfect example of functional, open-plan living, the kitchen is supplemented with a matching utility room. Returning to the hall, the sprawling ground floor also features a snug family room, a versatile study/double bedroom and a convenient WC.
Upstairs the commanding gallery landing offers an open aspect onto the dining area, as well as idyllic framed views of the rural landscape. Finished in sumptuous cream tones, the lavish master bedroom boasts a bright dressing room and an immaculate en-suite shower room. The first floor also accommodates two stylish double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a well-proportioned single bedroom, and the contemporary three-piece family bathroom.
Externally the property enjoys private gardens to the front and rear, which have been sympathetically landscaped to complement the rural surroundings. The rear garden in particular is afforded exceptional seclusion by mature shrubs and trees. The Findhorn further benefits from a large single garage with light and power, plus a long tandem driveway that comfortably accommodates two vehicles.

|Natural Light – A brighter home
|The use of natural light is an essential element of the design with expansive use of glazing to public areas in particular. Careful compensating detailing reduces energy costs and improves the appearance of our homes but also affects the health and mental well-being of those people living in them.
|Contemporary kitchens units and bathrooms
|Appliances; induction hob, integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer, washing machine, double oven
|Windows and screens – Kleinhans triple glazed
|Ceiling heights of 2.70 metre floor
|Double garage with power and light
|Wood burning Stove
|Acoustic Performance – A quieter home
|Superb acoustic performance, easily surpassing the standards required by building regulations, further enhancing the enjoyment the owner will get from their new home.
|Air Quality (Mechanical House Ventilation Heat Recovery MHVR) – A cleaner home
|A managed amount of air is reintroduced to the property through the MHVR which prevents condensation and still air areas. This filtered, clean, warm air is a boon to hay fever sufferers and asthmatics alike.
|Underfloor Heating – A warmer home
|Each zone is easily programmed to meet the demands of a particular area instead of wasting energy and money heating areas of the property which are used less often than others.
|State of the art manufacturing
|Each home is built using a closed panel timber system. By using an innovative, proven, off-site manufactured build system, Eskgrove easily surpass the quality and performance of current generation, traditional, on-site building methods.
|The system is structurally and thermally engineered to Eskgrove’s precise requirements and delivers outstanding thermal performance. Scothaus construct the ‘closed panels’ that make up the walls, floors and roof. The windows and external doors are fitted and integrated with the external wall panels in the factory. It’s a highly engineered, extraordinarily precise process.
|Actively promote the use of timber products sourced from well managed, sustainable sources and maximise the benefits of timber design to reduce raw materials’ waste during manufacture and construction:.
• use particle board with no added formaldehyde.
• manufactured using only the very best strength graded and kiln dried timber.
• structural timber is stored under cover in a temperature controlled environment to maintain the correct moisture content.
|Canjaere Classic a prefinished, high performance cladding. The unique timber treatment gives softwoods the typical properties of hardwood enabling them to be used in typical hardwood applications by increasing water resistance and stability.
|The air source heat pump is renewable and totally free energy. Energy usage is reduced to the electricity required to run the compressor and circulation pumps inside the heat pump which can mean an energy saving of up to 70% compared to a traditional boiler or all-electric heating.
|Blue/black natural clay rather than precast concrete. Of the many advantages of clay tile roofing, it durability is probably the biggest.
|Thermal conductivity – Typically 0.85 W/mK (3)
|Density – Typically 1900 Kg/m3 (3)
|Embodied energy – 6.5 MJ/kg (1)
|Life expectancy – 50 – 70 years
|Proprietary Acrylic Render (PAR)
|Using PAR, Eskgrove have made an enduring, environmentally responsible choice of material. PAR has been used externally as a more modern alternative to traditional cement render.
• Low vapour permeability.
• Good weather resistance / waterproofing. Improved resistance to freeze-thaw over cement render.
• Better bonding characteristics and improved flexibility than cement render
