About the property
** must see **
Situated in Ballencrieff, just outside Longniddry, this five bedroom semi-detached steading conversion enjoys the best of both worlds, surrounded by the picturesque East Lothian countryside yet within easy reach of nearby amenities, the rest of the county and further afield: an ideal location for growing families and commuting professionals preferring a quiet, countryside retreat.
Approached via a neatly-kept garden, the home’s front door opens into an airy reception hall with built-in storage and plenty of space for furniture items. Stepping through double doors to your right, you enter an impressive, high-ceilinged living room. Occupying a generous footprint, therefore offering fantastic flexibility for endless furniture configurations, this sunny, dual-aspect reception area enjoys muted décor and features patio doors opening directly onto the garden – ideal for alfresco entertaining and family recreation during the warmer months!
Next door, an equally generous open-plan kitchen and dining room awaits. The kitchen is equipped with an excellent selection of modern, wood-styled wall and base cabinets framed by plentiful workspace and splashback tiling. The range of integrated appliances includes an electric double oven and grill, a gas hob, a gleaming extractor hood, a fridge freezer and a dishwasher, whilst an adjoining fitted utility room (with external access) offers space for laundry appliances and features a clothes pulley.
The dining room is visually separated from the kitchen by a breakfast bar and affords access to a decked terrace via patio doors.
Also located on the ground floor are two double bedrooms and a shower room comprising a double shower enclosure with a tiled surround, a wallmounted basin, and a toilet. From the hall, a staircase leads to a first-floor landing with storage, which in turn affords access to the three remaining bedrooms and a bathroom. Both double bedrooms on this level accommodate built-in storage; the master bedroom has the luxury of a stylish en-suite shower room, complete with a large corner shower enclosure, a basin, and a toilet.
Finally, the bathroom comprises a bathtub, a wall-mounted basin, and a toilet.
The home is heated by an efficient gas central heating system and benefits from double glazed windows throughout.
Outside, the house is surrounded by beautifully-maintained garden grounds. Presenting the perfect outdoor space for relaxing as a family and entertaining with guests, the gardens feature manicured lawns, decked terraces, and two handy sheds for external storage.
The property also benefits from access to private residents’ parking within the development.
