Upper Glen Lyon Broadgait, Gullane, EH31 2DJ
About the property
Situated in the exclusive coastal village of Gullane, close to its white sandy beach,
renowned golf courses and excellent local artisan shops, Upper-Glen Lyon is a
handsome two/three-bedroom (plus a large box room) stone-built upper villa, forming
part of a substantial Edwardian property. Although lovingly maintained over the years,
the villa now requires modernisation and offers its new owners outstanding scope to
create a magnificent coastal home, with a sunny garden and a garage.
The propertyfurther benefits from a very large partially floored attic, which, with the correct permissions, could substantially increase the footprint of this 1140 sq. foot, period home.
Nestled behind an appealing wrought-iron gate and attractive front garden, a set of
external stairs (with storage underneath), leads to the first floor. Once inside, you are
welcomed by lovingly preserved period features including soaring ceilings, large windows
with wood panelling, original doors and beautiful intricate cornicing. Originally the
drawing room, the spacious living room with its large bay window, is flooded with natural
light highlighting the detailed cornicing, dado rail, and Edinburgh Press.
Arranged around a gas fire, the living room is large enough to accommodate a dining area in the bay – offering flexible space to relax and dine in. On the other side of the large central hallway is a kitchen, currently fitted with a range of white cabinets and freestanding appliances. The footprint of this sunny room lends itself to create a generous family kitchen with ample wall space for fitted cabinets.
Next door is a formal dining room, which could also be used as a third double bedroom. The property’s two remaining double bedrooms both offer an airy atmosphere, fitted wardrobes, Edinburgh Presses and period features.
At the end of the hallway is a generous box room, lit by a skylight, currently used as a
study. Completing the internal accommodation is a bright family bathroom, fitted with a
matching three-piece suite. The property benefits from gas central heating throughout,
with a new boiler fitted in October last year.
Externally, the villa offers a sunny private garden and benefits from large drive (shared
with one neighbour), which leads to a private single garage.
