Two of the bedrooms in the showhome, appealing to younger family members, are decorated with inspiring fresh and funky themes , such as striking pop art style walls for the boys and delightful bird cage design wall vinyls for the girls. Both bedrooms are styled with colourful soft furnishings and feature space for chilling out as well as desk space for all-important study time.

The spacious family bathroom, featuring a contemporary suite and modern ceiling spotlights, offers the added advantage of a luxurious deep bath and separate shower compartment.

Thornybank Green is perfectly located for those working in Edinburgh and commuting beyond. Situated just eight miles away from the city centre, the town of Dalkeith strikes the balance between the cultural attractions of the capital and the close-knit community feel of a traditional market town.

The town itself boasts a diverse range of retailers and its own attractions, such as the St Nicholas-Buccleuch Church and the rolling splendour of the nearby Dalkeith Country Park Estate. The location also lends itself perfectly to outdoor pursuits, such as exploring the surrounding countryside.
