Two double bedrooms and a handy WC are also found on the elevated ground floor. Downstairs is a dining/living room, large refitted kitchen with appliances included, a large bay windowed master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and en suite shower room, a stylish family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and lower hall with access to the garden as well as two generous storage cupboards.
The property has an enclosed garden to front plus a large walled rear garden which is fully enclosed which offers a large patio, lawn, shrubs and large cabin style summerhouse as well as a large wooden shed. There is unrestricted on street parking to the front of the property.
Steeped in history, the popular coastal town of Musselburgh is attractively located on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth right at the mouth of the River Esk. It is surrounded by unspoiled countryside and offers delightful walks along the river, promenade, nature reserve and links. Leisure facilities are varied including the famous Musselburgh Racecourse, a choice of golf courses, theatre, harbour, sailing, swimming pool/sports centre and modern private gymnasium. The town retains its original market town shape, which is now lined with numerous shops and a choice of banks along with a wide range of supermarkets including a large Tesco. There are excellent educational facilities within the town and Queen Margaret University. Transport links to Edinburgh are easy having a local railway station and regular bus services. Fast main roads link easily with the A1, which in turn provides access to the City Bypass, major motorway connections and Edinburgh International Airport.
