Stuart Radmall & RE/MAX Marketing Centre Edinburgh are delighted to present The Old Jail to the market.
I am proud to list this stunning property in idyllic North Queensferry.
The Old Jail is a grade C listed linked stone cottage.
It dates back to the 19th Century and was used up until the 1960’s as the local police station and jail.
The property was last purchased in 2018 and has been completely revamped inside and out.
This, 3 bed, 2-bathroom cottage is packed with features and elegance, from the moment you walk in you are met by a stylish stone floor and boutique style reception area.
The C listed staircase curls its way gently upwards to the first floor where the main living areas are located.
Both the sitting room and kitchen have stunning un interrupted views of the Forth and the Bridges.
Those views never get boring as the change daily with the seasons and the as always unpredictable Scottish weather.
The Kitchen/Utility room are styled in a light up to date cabinets with antique handles, while the solid wooden counter tops and wall and floor tiles gives it a welcoming country cottage feel. It even has a butler sink and an island which hosts an electric hob.
The separate and cosy sitting room enjoys its own views and the upstairs bathroom is fitted with a free standing, contemporary double ended bath.
The Attic is fully floored with several sky lights and is currently being used as an office but build easily be turned into a fourth bedroom.
The ground floor of the property is where you will find the Entrance hall and reception area. From here you can access the two double bedroom and third further but slightly smaller bedroom. Each again enjoying views of the Forth.
The down stair’s bathroom/shower hosts it own little bit of history and was once used as one of the two jail cells. The small window still has the original bars behind it.
Both bathrooms have a luxury feel to them and I would be happy to spend time in either.
The outside has a large driveway with more than enough space for two large 4x4 vehicles at the front and a rear garden which is made up of pathways, a gravel patio at the bottom with storage unit.
The garden moves to grass and slops gently upwards toward the back end of the garden. The sun hits the garden most of the day but sets at the top end where there is a seating area to enjoy the last bit of heat before the sun finally sets.
The Forth Rail Bridge towers above you as it stretches off into the distance.
It’s a sight to be hold and is pretty magical.
Stepping out of the front door you are amerced into the costal feel of this small quiet town.
The Pier and the shoreline are directly in front of you and so are all three bridges. There are an assortment of colourful properties creating a crescent around the harbour.
A short walk and you are in the centre of North Queensferry
This peaceful village offers a range of amenities which include a primary school, nursery, playpark, community centre and multi-use games area, convenience store and post office, café, restaurants, including The Wee Restaurant and The Shore at the nearby Doubletree Hilton Hotel, and the popular Deep-Sea World.
Nearby Dunfermline and Inverkeithing provide secondary schooling and a wide range of retail, business and leisure facilities including a cinema. There is a school bus service from North Queensferry for Mary Erskine and Stewart's Melville schools in Edinburgh.
North Queensferry is littered with high end executive homes, even ex-Prime Minister Gordon Brown resides there.
The property is extremely convenient for commuting, with excellent links to Edinburgh, Dunfermline, Perth and Glasgow. The junction to the M90 is approximately one mile away with the Queensferry Crossing situated about a mile beyond.

*On a side note the current owners wanted me to info you that planning permission has been approved for another door to be added from the first floor landing into a porch and out onto a walkway that links directly into the garden. Basically they to gain access directly to the garden from the first floor of the house. Details of planning available*
