Home by the Old Course
Owning a creative and modern architect-designed property could be a reality with this home in Musselburgh by the famous Old Course.
This spectacular bespoke detached town house at 32 Linkfield Road, Musselburgh forms part of an elegant small development of three properties which has been designed by Slorach Wood Architects, and brought to market by the Oakridge Group, who were winners at this year’s The Herald Property Awards for Scotland.
The property occupies a plot next to the two refurbished Victorian townhouses, and combines a creative design that emphasises space and light, and takes advantage of the impressive views. It is finished to an exceptionally high standard throughout with high quality fixtures and fittings.
Some of the great features include the balconies to the front of the house, which open out from the first floor drawing room and the second floor master bedroom. These balconies, clad in cedar, and with contemporary glazed panels, offer perfect views over Musselburgh race course, the Old Course and towards the Firth of Forth, with the Ochil and Lomond Hills beyond.
The property has an open plan family space, but also a traditional drawing room. The open space family living area combines a kitchen with living room and dining room, which will become a natural heart of the home for all the family and features bifold doors that open out to a sun-trap secluded garden. The kitchen has high quality German kitchen units with stilestone worktops and Neff appliances, including a ‘slide and hide’ oven, as seen on The Great British Bake-Off.
The master bedroom suite is a unique space as it has a separate snug/gallery, a luxurious en suite bathroom and a balcony which offers wonderful views north towards Fife.
There are a number of design features that will ensure the home stays warm and cosy during autumn and winter months. The windows are Alu Clad double glazed, there is under floor heating to the ground floor and gas central heating throughout, and electric under-floor matt heating in all bathrooms. There are also USB charging points throughout the home.
Each of the bathrooms have been fitted with contemporary Vessini and Vitra white bathroom suits finished with Hansgrohe taps and showers with glazed panels.
The main entrance and shared driveway leading to the garage and car port have been mono blocked and there is space to the front of the house for additional parking for two cars. The enclosed south facing garden to the rear has been landscaped with turf and has a good sized patio.
The historic East Lothian town of Musselburgh has many great amenities as well as access to countryside and seaside walks. It has its own famous race course, golf clubs, a harbour and excellent schools, both private and public.
There is a good variety of shops on the bustling high street with a broader range of facilities at nearby Fort Kinnaird. Musselburgh also affords excellent transport links with easy access to East, Mid and West Lothian through the A1 and the bypass. Musselburgh also offers two local train stations providing access to Edinburgh Waverley and Haymarket stations.
