Brimming with opulent proportions and classic period features, this enchanting four-bedroom, three reception room, semi-detached villa is the very essence of old North Berwick grandeur. Situated on an appealing residential street overlooking wild gardens with views over the Firth of Forth, the sandstone building, with its commanding bay windows and red sandstone façade, makes a striking first impression.
The front door opens into an entrance vestibule with original chequered mosaic tiling, which in turn gives access to the hallway where lovingly preserved period features including stripped wooden floors, original doors and a dado rail, set the tone for the accommodation to follow. Situated at the front of the property, the vast living room is bathed in light from a magnificent bay window framed by timber casements, complete with traditional brass fittings. Its soaring ceilings are adorned with cornicing while at the focal point of the room is a fireplace flanked by recess shelving, which houses an inviting living-flame gas fire. Continuing to the rear of the property, is a charming family room with a semi open-plan layout to the formal dining room. The family room is arranged around a striking feature fireplace flanked by recessed shelving. The dining room offers the perfect setting for family meals and entertaining and offers direct access to the picturesque rear garden. Continuing through a useful utility room, with large WC off, the modern fitted kitchen diner is the heart of this family home. With access to both the front and rear gardens, this airy room features a stylish, contemporary fitted kitchen. Gleaming white cabinets with wooden accents are framed by striking red splashbacks and finished with chrome handles. The kitchen incorporates an eye-level oven, combi microwave oven and grill, 5-ring gas hob, concealed extractor hood, fridge and dishwasher. It also offers enough space for a dining table and four chairs; ideal for informal family meals. A rear door gives access to the delightful sunny garden, perfect for alfresco dining!
