St. Kentigern's 29f High Street, East Linton, EH40 3AA
About the property
*** This truly unique property is now available again to view ***
Centrally located in desirable East Linton, the former church of St Kentigern’s promises a unique detached family home of remarkable proportions, with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a selection of versatile reception areas. A wealth of fine original features remains, including exquisite stone carvings, whilst the sympathetic additions of solid wood doors and leaded windows cleverly echo the property’s ecclesiastical past.
Accessed via double storm doors, an inviting hall houses a useful cloakroom and leads into the heart of the home; a vast, sociable kitchen with a wealth of flexible space for seated dining and comfortable furniture. Southerly-facing with direct garden access, the kitchen is arranged around a central breakfast bar island and appointed in a contemporary, country kitchen style. Set against rustic exposed stone walls, a wide selection of high quality cabinets is accompanied by oak worktops, integrated downlighting and a Belfast sink. An impressive Rangemaster cooker, a freestanding American-style fridge freezer and a dishwasher are also included, whilst an adjoining, generous utility room, with handy external access and a traditional clothes pulley, provides plumbing for white goods. Also accessed from the dining kitchen is a characterful WC, formerly the robing room and featuring built-in storage.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a versatile home office and play room/family room, as well as a substantial living room. Here, the property’s heritage is immediately apparent with a vaulted double-height ceiling, arched windows and timber beams. Further enchanting features include a raised fireplace with an inviting log-burning stove and a magnificent spiral staircase leading to a galleried landing with floor-to-ceiling fitted shelving. Reached via stairs from the kitchen, a first floor landing (with storage) accommodates an elegantly-decorated master suite (also accessible from the living room), two further double bedrooms, with handsome exposed beams, and a good-sized single bedroom. Accompanying the master bedroom are extensive fitted wardrobes and an immaculate, chicly-styled en-suite bathroom. The remaining bedrooms are serviced by a similarly styled family bathroom including a bathtub and a separate shower enclosure. A sizable loft space and dry cellar represent excellent additional storage, whilst gas central heating and double glazing throughout ensure a warm, energy efficient climate all year round.
Externally, the house enjoys a large southerly-facing rear garden, well maintained and fully enclosed. This sunny outdoor space incorporates a lawn, attractive planting and a spacious decked terrace.
