Lochend Kennels Cottage LOCHEND, Dunbar, EH42 1RF
About the property
Situated on the rural fringes of desirable Dunbar, this charming detached cottage enjoys the best of both worlds: the scenic countryside and woodland on the doorstep, yet still within easy reach of the town’s outstanding amenities, including its award-winning High Street, reputable schools, and the train station.
The cottage instantly endears with its charming partial stone exterior: a contrast to the sympathetically-modern interiors to follow. The front door opens into a welcoming hall, elegantly presented with neutral décor and a handsome warmly-toned wood floor.
Straight ahead, you step into a living room, where sage green décor is accompanied by the same flooring as the hall, creating an inviting, attractive backdrop for arrangements of lounge furniture.
Across the hall, you will find a fabulous open-plan family/dining room, identically-styled to the living room and filled with natural light courtesy of triple-aspect glazing, including French doors opening onto the garden. Ample space is available for further lounge furniture and a seated dining area, and a striking stone fireplace houses a homely wood-burning stove.
A sunny, dual-aspect kitchen is conveniently accessed from the dining area and is fitted with modern cabinetry & worktops, sleek metro-tiled splashbacks, and a Belfast sink. An oven and hob, and an extractor hood are integrated, whilst space is provided for a tall, freestanding fridge/freezer, an undercounter washing machine, and a dishwasher.
One of the home’s three double bedrooms and a bathroom complete the downstairs accommodation. The bedroom boasts a sunny south-facing aspect and benefits from direct garden access, and the bathroom comprises a bath with an overhead shower and a folding glazed screen, a pedestal basin, and a WC.
On the first floor, a landing with storage leads to the two remaining double bedrooms and a shower room. The sleeping areas both enjoy tranquil outlooks and the impressive master bedroom has a wonderful vaulted ceiling with Velux windows, and built-in storage. The stylish shower room comes complete with a corner shower enclosure, a basin set into storage, and a WC. The house benefits from double-glazed windows throughout.
Externally, the house is accompanied by a large, secluded garden, boasting an enviably sunny aspect and featuring a generous lawn, leafy trees and shrubbery, a patio for outdoor seating, and a large shed. The property also comes with a plot of land adjacent approx 0.52 acres.
Private parking is available by way of a driveway.
