Incorporating four bedrooms, multiple reception areas and two bathrooms, this substantial detached house represents a perfect family home and further benefits from a south-facing garden, an integral double garage and a tandem driveway. Nestled in a tranquil development in Pencaitland, in the heart of the unspoilt East Lothian countryside, the house lies conveniently close to local schools and amenities in the village and in nearby Tranent and Haddington.
Set behind a well-kept lawn, the front door opens into a vestibule flowing through to a hallway with cupboard storage and a WC. On the left, you step into a sociable flow of generous reception rooms. Firstly, a spacious living room offers a large footprint for lounge furniture and benefits from tasteful decor enhanced by classic coving, plush carpeting, and an elegant fireplace surround with an electric fire inset. From here, double doors open into a formal dining room; presenting the perfect setting for seated family meals and entertaining. Accessed from the dining room is an exceptionally spacious, south-facing conservatory that could lend itself to a variety of uses and opens directly onto the rear garden. The sunny and attractive dining kitchen (accessed from the dining room, the hall and the conservatory) incorporates space for a casual dining area and is fitted with clotted cream-coloured country-style cabinetry accompanied by spacious worktops and pastel-toned splashback tiling. An integrated double oven, a gas hob and an extractor hood also feature, whilst an unusually spacious utility room (with external access) houses further fitted cabinetry, a large fridge freezer, and a washing machine.
Upstairs, a landing (with storage) leads to four bedrooms; three doubles and a single. The exceptionally large master suite spans the entire depth of the property and has the added luxuries of a walk-in wardrobe and a stylish, modern, en-suite wet room. The remaining double bedrooms both have handy built-in wardrobes with mirrored doors and one benefits from a peaceful rear-facing position and a sunny aspect. Finally, a family bathroom comes replete with a shower-over-bath with a glazed screen, and a WC-suite set into storage. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
Outside, in addition to a well-kept lawn to the front, the house enjoys a delightful, south-facing garden to the rear, featuring a lawn, a patio and a handy she. Excellent private parking is provided by an integral double garage and a tandem driveway.
Extras: All fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated appliances, washing machine and fridge freezer to be included in the sale.
Pencaitland, East Lothian
The picturesque village of Pencaitland has developed around the Tyne Water, with a 16th century bridge linking the two sides of easter and wester Pencaitland. Situated only 12 miles from the heart of Edinburgh city centre, in unspoilt countryside, the historic village can date its church back to 1242. The public house, the Winton Arms, is situated to the east of the village, and hosts occasional events and quiz nights, as is the bowling club, recreation field and a children's play park. A small supermarket includes a post office, a petrol station and the old village shop, and there are also local home deliveries of fish, fruit and vegetable vans together with a mobile library and bank. The village also has a primary school. Nearby Haddington (only 5 miles away) offers extensive shopping and amenities, including a range of independent shops and supermarkets, banks, cafes, pubs, restaurants, galleries, hardware shops, garages, a state-of-the-art library, primary and secondary schools, some further education and sports clubs. The beautifully restored Carriage House in the village hosts a range of activity groups. Popular with walkers and cyclists, there are several pathways around Pencaitland, beside the Tyne Water, through the Winton estate and along the old railway track. The village offers regular bus services to Edinburgh and 30-minute car journey will take you to the city centre.
