Whitehill Woods offers discerning home buyers a remarkable opportunity to be part of a truly special, secluded country estate, with spectacular views and a short distance from Edinburgh.

This unique new development is set within the grounds of Whitehill House, one of Scotland’s great Tudor Jacobean revival houses, designed by the renowned architect William Burn (1789-1870) for Lord Ramsay.

The estate is set beside the picturesque Whitehill House Golf Course designed by the eminent Swiss golf course architect, John Chilver-Stainer, providing the backdrop to the entire site, with a new Club House incorporating a small bar and café, to which residents are welcome.

Design Ethos

A number of eminent architects came together to design this challenging project, set in the grounds of the Whitehill Estate, with significant woodland and rural features. A high quality design respectful of its setting has been created using larch timber cladding and amorphous shapes that fit the woodland and open spaces.

Outdoor and Indoor Living Space

All the properties are built to an exacting performance standard with environmentally friendly insulation and triple glazing throughout. Care has been taken to allow the spaces to blend into the surrounding landscape.

The green spaces of the gardens flow naturally into the parkland and create the vision that the garden is part of the countryside. At the same time, the needs of many of the facilities demanded by modern living have been addressed with exceptional space standards, provision of plentiful storage, large garages with space for recreation, workshops, etc and large utility rooms with direct access to both the garage and outside space.

Wide hallways and open galleries offer flexible circulation space. An abundance of light is brought into the properties with the use of large windows and doorway openings throughout.

The gardens are designed to flow into the natural countryside and allow a feeling of space. Provision has been made for those who have green fingers to indulge themselves in gardening areas to the side and rear of the house without impact on the quality of the environment. Otherwise the gardens are designed to be easily maintained.

Within Whitehill Woods the prevailing atmosphere is intensely calm. It is detached, serene, and yet all the amenities one could want are very close to hand – and Edinburgh is a short distance away.


Careful consideration has been given to vehicle access and parking, large private areas are set aside at the front of each house to allow ample space for parking for visitors and residents.

Road surfaces are all new but are confined to a rural scale, with sustainable urban drainage providing the surface water and roof drainage which escapes via filtration beds into the local river.
