Knowehead Cottage comprises a most charming period property set in a beautiful rural setting yet within close proximity of Edinburgh. The property is a historical building formerly part of the Hatton House Estate. The cottage has been recently fully refurbished and attractively redecorated in neutral warm shades throughout and offers spacious family accommodation of great character with delightful views across rolling farmland. The property further benefits from a private garden, a single garage, oil fired central heating and double glazing. The garden ground is extensive and offers great potential for growing fruit and vegetables.


Knowehead Cottage lies close to the delightful and semi rural communities of both Kirknewton and Ratho and is within easy reach of Edinburgh.  The property is well placed to take advantage of a number of shops in the village to cater for everyday requirements. Close by Hermiston Gait offers a wide variety of shopping while Livingston is also within easy reach with the Almondvale Shopping Centre and McArthur Glen retail outlet housing a wide variety of retail outlets, bars and restaurants.  Leisure pursuits include golf courses at Ratho, Dalmahoy and Livingston, where a number of other sporting activities can be enjoyed.  Surrounded as it is by open countryside, the area lends itself to restful country walks.  Kirknewton has its own primary school and good schools within the state and private sectors are within easy reach.  The city bypass, main motorway networks and Edinburgh's international airport are within a short drive. Kirknewton also has its own railway station.
