About the property
Occupying an enviable position in the heart of this charming East Lothian hamlet, and with sweeping picturesque countryside views, this traditional four-bedroom cottage offers an idyllic semi-rural lifestyle within easy access to bustling North Berwick
Nestled back from the road, this delightful, stone-built cottage with a typical East Lothian traditional red pantile roof, welcomes you through the front entrance into a bright reception hallway, which in turn flows into the spacious living/dining room. A traditional fireplace offers a focal point for furniture of choice for dining and relaxation.
Two deep windows provide an outlook to the front, whilst neutral décor and cosy carpets create a peaceful ambience. The accommodation leads into the country-style dining kitchen; brightly lit by two windows, the range of cream-coloured fitted floor and wall mounted units, and contrasting wood worktop, incorporate space for a freestanding cooker, dishwasher and undercounter refrigerator.
Adjoining the dining area, the back door creates a direct access to the garden. A separate utility room provides a useful laundry area – ideal for an outdoor lifestyle.
The property boasts four bedrooms sharing two bathrooms (each incorporating a bath with shower over). The spacious double master bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom, boasts a bright, front facing outlook. Bedrooms two and three (both doubles), and bedroom four (a single) offer a peaceful rear, garden outlook.
Finally, with additional access from the rear of the house, is a home office – ideal for a working from home lifestyle.
Night storage central heating and double-glazing ensure year-round warmth and comfort.
Outside, double gates lead from the road, giving rise to parking behind the house.
The exceptionally generous gardens (around 750 square meters), bounded by recently repointed thick stone walls to three sides, have been beautifully landscaped with an expanse of manicured lawn bordered by colourful flowerbeds, framing the breath-taking rural views.
There is a garden shed, a greenhouse and vegetable beds. A summer house provides a delightful indoor/outdoor space for al-fresco relaxation.
