Croft House is a rarely available, traditional stone built Victorian property located in the sought after conservation area in the heart of Haddington. Built in 1871, the current owners have lovingly and sympathetically renovated Croft House, retaining an abundance of period features; including cornicing, claw foot bath, bell pull and working shutters throughout, whilst also modernising to create a comfortable family home. This spacious and well-proportioned property is set back from the road with gated off road parking and large walled garden to the rear.
Set over two floors, the front door opens to an entrance vestibule with original tiled floor and, with a glazed door that opens to the entrance hall, gives access to the principal rooms on the ground floor. The living room boasts a large bay window with stunning, original panelled shutters. It also features an eco-design multi fuel stove enclosed by a marble mantel piece and two Edinburgh presses.
Across the hall, the dining room also has a stove – perfect for cosy dinners in front of the fire. From the dining room, large glass doors lead through to the kitchen which has solid oak work surfaces, a granite-topped central island, tiled flooring and traditional ceramic sink looking onto the garden. There is also a walk in wine cellar/pantry. Modern appliances include a five ring gas hob, electric dual oven and dishwasher. A further door opens to the back area of the house which comprises of a spacious utility room and cloakroom. The former features a basin, wall and base mounted cupboards, fridge freezer, combi boiler and washing machine. The latter, a WC and wash hand basin. There is also a back door that opens to the garden. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is an elegant master bedroom with Edinburgh press and multi-paned window overlooking the garden.
Returning to the entrance hall a grand stone staircase rises to the upper rooms with a bathroom on the mid landing. This charming room has dual aspect onto the rear garden and features a Victorian inset sink and handsome claw foot bath, recessed mains pressure shower and WC with high level cast iron cistern. On the first floor landing there are a further four generous double bedrooms, one of which has an adjoining room currently accessed directly from the landing and used as a study. However, this could also be easily utilised as a dressing room, nursey or en-suite. Access to the loft via a ramsay ladder reveals a fully floored, lined and well lit loft, covering the footprint of the house and providing an abundance of storage or conversion possibilities.
The gardens at Croft House are predominantly laid to lawn, with fruit and vegetable kitchen garden, cottage garden and wild flower areas. The mature trees provide privacy and with the generous paved patio, garden bench swing and cosy chiminea area, the garden is ideal for entertaining or whiling away the hours, enjoying time outdoors.
