Also on the first floor is a fine formal dining room with original panelled fireplace, leading to a well-planned fitted kitchen and breakfast room. The kitchen comes complete with designer sink and drainer, granite worktops and breakfast shelf, a four-ring gas hob with griddle, stainless steel electric fan oven with grill, microwave and wine cooler.

Completing this floor is the master bedroom and smart shower room.

There is also generous eaves storage cupboard with gas central heating ‘combi’ boiler. All fitted carpets are included in the sale as are many window blinds. Efficient gas central heating combines with all but two double-glazed windows to ensure year-round comfort. Some items of furnishing, including the over-mantel mirror in the sitting room may be available to purchase by separate negotiation.
To the front is an easy-care private garden laid to lawn with herbaceous borders. To the side is a secluded, sun-trap paved terrace with summerhouse and hut. In all, this is an ideal, beautifully-presented family home offering generous space standards in one of East Lothian`s most exclusive and sought-after locations offering an absolutely outstanding quality of residential environment.
Inveresk is a prestigious conservation village noted for its large eighteenth century mansions and Victorian family homes and is situated only six miles east of Edinburgh city centre. There is also access to lovely walks along the River Esk. Nearby Musselburgh has an excellent range of shops including a 24 hour Tesco, Clark’s famous fishmongers, a wine merchant and an organic fruit and vegetable shop. There are two leisure centres, each with a swimming pool, sailing from the harbour, the racecourse, Brunton Hall Theatre and a good variety of restaurants.
There is a choice of rail transport for a speedy trip into Edinburgh Waverley. Wallyford, approximately one mile to the east, provides a popular park and ride with a 12 minute trip, whilst Musselburgh is only an eight minute trip. There are also regular bus services into Edinburgh, while a very short drive south takes you to the A1 bypass connecting with the Sherriffhall roundabout and onto the City Bypass.
