House in Dalkeith, near Edinburgh, Scotland

Our home is a modern conversion of a semi detached Victorian cottage, built in 1883, with an extension to the rear which comprises living room, kitchen and garden room.  The kitchen was completely renovated in May 2017. The master bedroom is on the ground floor at the front of the house, with  ensuite showerroom, and the dining room also faces the front street. The main bathroom, which is also on the ground floor, was completely renovated in May 2018. It features a bath and walk-in shower. Upstairs there is a double bedroom and a study/single bedroom. 
There is a small paved garden to the front of the house, and a mature landscaped garden to the rear. We have a superstore open until midnight nearby, so shopping is extremely convenient.  The house is located in a very quiet and friendly street.
There are frequent buses into Edinburgh city centre from close by, or alternatively a train every 30 minutes. Most people find public transport an easier option than driving into the city as parking places are hard to find, and expensive.
We have completed 15 successful exchanges since 2009, in the UK, Europe, North America, and Australia. In 2023 we exchanged to Belgium and to Finland, and we will be in the Netherlands on exchange in July this year.
