Walk straight in to an open plan, living space/gallery with underfloor heating, beamed ceilings, African beaded lampshades and early drawings by Phyllida Barlow. A wood-burning stove belts out the heat and hundreds of books about art and design surround you. Walk through French doors onto a decked area with a Big Green Egg and views across an orchard and fields down to the river.
The kitchen is roomy and all the basics for cooking will be there, including a smart coffee maker and designer plates and bowls. Bedrooms, all en suite, are gorgeous spaces with more art, La-Eva bath stuff, mohair blankets and deep mattresses. The master has its own balcony from which you can watch the bridges over the river light up at dusk. The garden surrounds you, with a big lawn and a wood-fired bath for 2.
Explore the park, wander to the on site café, swim in the outdoor heated saltwater pool, hire bikes and hit the Pentland Hills.
