From Rick Stein’s Long Weekends, to Paul Hollywood Eats Japan and Celebrity Masterchef, cookery shows have been a huge hit during lockdown, with competitive sour dough breadmaking becoming a new national past-time.

Many people have rediscovered the health and wellbeing benefits of making meals from fresh ingredients and a home with a spacious kitchen, like the Kidston at Walker Group’s One Dalhousie in Bonnyrigg, has never been more desirable.

Just released for sale, this stylish four bedroom home has a large open plan kitchen with family area and separate utility room and is currently available from £319,000.

Flooded with light thanks to its large window and French doors, this is the ideal spot to create an amazing meal, with the doors opening onto the garden on a warm summer’s day.

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “I think everyone is re-evaluating the things that are important to them after so much time at home, and the kitchen is very much at the heart of daily life.

“People of all ages have been cooking – some for the first time – from learning to make versions of their favourite dishes from popular restaurant chains, to cooking elaborate dishes recommended by models and movie stars on Instagram.

“The Kidston is a fantastic property and would make a great home for nurturing the talents of the next Gordon Ramsay or Jamie Oliver.”

The ground floor also has a welcoming entrance hall, a cloakroom, a bright lounge and garage. Upstairs there are four generously proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master has its own en-suite shower room.

Buyers can see the very high level of specification on offer at One Dalhousie by visiting the stylish Roxburgh Corner showhome by appointment.

Located to the north of Dalhousie Dairy, the homes come complete with their own solar panels along with high performance insulation, double glazing and energy efficient heating systems. They offer lots of other clever touches too, including ample fitted storage in the kitchen and bedrooms and radiator valves that are positioned to make vacuuming easier. Many of the properties feature utility rooms, garages and family rooms that provide vital extra space.

Bonnyrigg’s town centre, with its avenue of trees, has a selection of local stores including a chemist, bank and post office. A Tesco supermarket is a short drive away and larger high street stores are available at Straiton Retail Park.

There’s lots to do in the surrounding area for sports lovers – golfers will enjoy playing in the magnificent parkland setting of Broomieknowe Golf Club while fitness fans will be able to work out in Lasswade Leisure Centre which has a wide array of facilities including a gym, games hall, 25m pool, dance studio, badminton hall, squash court, a gymnastics academy, a library and a café.

Also just a short drive away is the National Mining Museum Scotland, a five star visitor attraction, where you can retrace the footsteps of thousands of miners and their families. The Rossyln Chapel is a must visit for history lovers and fans of Dan Brown’s novel and film the Da Vinci Code.

The showhome and sales office are available to visit by appointment only. Contact 0131 654 1505 or www.walkergroup.co.uk for further information.
