About the property
Located in an exclusive part of the sunny seaside town of Dunbar, with spectacular views of the ruins of Dunbar Castle, the coast and hills in the distance, this substantial, semi-detached red sandstone villa blends period charm with spacious family living. It comes with three/four reception rooms, four/five bedrooms, a home office, a garage, and delightful private gardens. With Dunbar Train Station and the bustling High Street within easy walking distance, and Edinburgh Waverley only a 20-minutes rail journey way, this home is ideal for both commuters and families.
Set behind a colourful landscaped garden, the front door opens into a vestibule (with storage) which in turn gives access to a welcoming reception hall with three large built-in cupboards and an impressive period staircase. The main living room is decorated in subtle colours and boasts a feature fireplace, a traditional press, and an expansive bay window, through which daylight floods into the room. The heart of this family home, however, is its modern, south-facing sunroom: with its large windows, skylights, and French Doors leading to the patio and garden beyond, this is an airy, bright space for family relaxing or socialising. Glazed double doors connect the sunroom and the dining kitchen, creating a wonderful open flow, ideal for family life and entertaining. The spacious kitchen is comes well appointed with solid wood cabinets, neatly integrated with a dishwasher, double oven, a concealed extractor hood and a gas hob. It also offers enough space for a generous dining table for quick meals. The neighbouring garage houses a utility area for laundry. A formal dining room offers further possibilities for entertaining; like the sunroom, this third reception room has its own garden entrance through glazed French doors that lead onto the patio and garden beyond. A fourth reception room can be found on the first floor in the sitting room, which could also be used as a luxurious master bedroom, and boasts detailed period cornicing, original marble fireplace, and expansive bay windows. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a home office and a shower room.
Taking the impressive period oak staircase to the first floor, one finds four large double bedrooms, each tastefully decorated in subtle tones. Bedroom 1 and Bedroom 2 both enjoy sunny southerly views over the rear garden. Bedroom 3 is similarly spacious, while the more compact Bedroom 4 looks out towards the coast. Located on a landing just below the first floor is the family bathroom, incorporating a white, 3-piece suite of bath with overhead shower, and WC-suite. The house benefits from gas-fired central heating and partial double glazing.
Externally, the property is accessed via a private driveway (leading to a single garage) and a path that leads across a carefully tended front garden with lawn and planted borders. To the rear is a beautiful walled garden featuring a paved patio, a lawn, a tool shed, and mature planted borders. A path leads across the lawn to a gate that serves as a rear entrance to the property.
Extras: All fitted floorcoverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, blinds, and garden shed included in the sale.
