Property Details

Stylish, sumptuous, contemporary, open-plan, exciting, elegant, stunning, a holiday romance. All these words have been used by guests to describe this open-flow; contemporary conversion completed in December 2004 and named after the fields it overlooks. Designed for flexibility, Orlege is the perfect honeymoon hideaway, but appeals just as much to families or business people in search of luxury or utopia. This accommodation really is Wow! Its two-storied layout is excitingly different, with the most wonderful star and angled shapes of coomb ceilings in the bedroom and bathroom upstairs accessed via a mezzanine-level gallery, whilst downstairs curved walls, and a double-height living space marry well with the original beams in the kitchen. Unusual features have been preserved from its former function as a building for rolling oats for feeding to livestock. With its Scandinavian glazed sliding doors, Velux roof-windows, solid oak floors and doors, wonderful limestone flagstones, open stairwell and ash staircase with tension wire balustrades, solid oak kitchen units and black granite worktop, it's bright, white, light and airy. Matching the granite hearth in the living-room are Juperana Bordeaux granite large windowsills reflecting within their polished depths the branches of the maple tree outside. Upstairs is a large, split level bedroom with a star-shaped coomb ceiling which has 3 single luxurious divan beds. Two of these single beds can push together and be zip-linked to form a large king-size double bed. This gives the flexibility of using this bedroom as either a family room, or for 3 singles, or as a double bedroom. Off the upstairs bedroom is an ensuite bathroom full of light, shapes and surprises! Also upstairs, before you enter through the door into the bedroom, is an inviting gallery area. A great spot to relax with a book, or to gaze across and out of the upper storey window or view from aloft the larger part of the stylish living area below. As well as a lounger and other incidental furniture, the space here allows for a sofa bed which can sleep an extra person , or even two slim cuddly people: the mattress width is 124cms. A normal single is 90cms. And a conventional double is 135 cms. Please note anyone sleeping here would need to go through another sleeping area to reach a bathroom. Downstairs the spacious living area has split level ceiling heights for interest; at the back is a large solid oak cupboard which, within it, hides a surprisingly discreet double bed with an extremely comfortable fully sprung mattress. One pull of the handle and this bed can come down at night and disappear out of sight again during the day with bedding largely intact and only a row of elegant daytime cupboards on show. Concealed within the cupboard doors, on either side of the pull-down bed, is hanging and shelf-space. With one swish an optional double-sided curtain can snake its way at night across the ceiling track here at the back of the living area to provide privacy to anyone in the double pull-down bed using this as a sleeping area. Visually this lower ceiling area then reflects a normal bedroom except that one wall is curtained. This bedroom even has its own open-able window. At the front of the double-height living space, filled with light from both the original windows in the end gable and the new glazed sliding doors that open onto the small flag stoned courtyard, is the multi-fuel stove which burns peat, coal and logs. And what could be nicer than relaxing in one of the two large leather settees or a large bean bag in front of a real living fire? Or dining in splendor seated around the glass dining-table which seats 6, flickering flames in the hearth close by, soft music from the CD player in the background? The effect is of gracious, spacious living. The equally voluminous and airy kitchen downstairs has lots of interesting features. Granite worktops, oak units and, thanks to the under floor heating throughout the downstairs, warm-to-the-feet limestone flags. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped, and additionally offering a wall-mounted third TV. And for those impromptu alfresco meals the kitchen table and chairs in the corner are light enough to carry outside through the glazed patio doors and onto the cobbled patio area which belongs exclusively to Orlege. Separate from the kitchen is a utility room with sink, washing machine and tumble-drier. As Orlege lacks a garden (other than the patio area) exclusive to the property, will be able to relax, glass of wine in hand, look beyond the trees to the fields.or just simply stargaze. Meantime guests have the choice of relaxing either in their private patio area or in the shade of the magnificent maple tree and woodland area just feet away from the gable end of the living area. With its double height windows optimising the views to the fields of Wester and Easter Orlege beyond, you'll feel part of the rural idyll just 30 minutes out from Edinburgh. Sleeps 3 + 2 or up to 6 using one sofa bed.
