About the property
Perfect for families and commuting professionals preferring a quiet retreat, yet still within easy reach of nearby amenities, the rest of the county and the capital, this four-bedroom two-bathroom detached house is nestled in the picturesque East Lothian village of Pencaitland.
Set back from the road behind the driveway, the home’s front door opens into a spacious, practical entrance vestibule with space for coats and shoes, flowing through to a hallway with a useful WC and an under-stair storage cupboard. On your right, you step into a living room. Quietly nestled to the rear of the property, overlooking the garden and enjoying an abundance of natural light through southerly-facing patio doors which afford access outside, this neutrally-decorated reception area offers a well-proportioned space for lounge furniture. An elegant, homely fireplace creates an ideal focal point and a cosy atmosphere during the colder months. Continuing along the hall, you reach a kitchen. Here, a wide selection of richly-toned, wood-styled cabinets is accompanied by stylish worktops and neutrally-toned splashback tiling. A freestanding gas cooker (with an integrated extractor hood) is included, whilst an adjoining utility room (with handy external access) houses further cabinets and offers space for a fridge/freezer and laundry appliances. Also located on the ground-floor are a formal dining room and a home office – ideal for those working from home.
Stairs from the hall lead to the first floor, where four bedrooms and a bathroom fan off a landing which also incorporates storage. The bedrooms consist of three doubles and a single. The two largest doubles enjoy a sunny aspect, a peaceful outlook over the rear garden, and mirrored built-in wardrobes. The master further boasts an en-suite shower room. Finally, the pristine, contemporary bathroom comes complete with a bathtub with an overhead shower and an aqua-panelled surround, and a WC-suite set into storage.
Gas central heating and double glazing ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
Outside, in addition to a small front lawn, the house is complemented by a good-sized, sun-trap rear garden, featuring a well-kept lawn bordered by secure fencing and leafy shrubbery, and seating areas. Excellent private parking is provided by a double driveway and a detached double garage, which also incorporates a handy storage loft.
