This charming stone built, three bedroom terraced house and vacant commercial premises has a lovely south facing garden, a single garage and parking and is situated in the heart of the picturesque conservation village of Aberlady. A short walk takes you to the stunning sea front at Aberlady Bay with its beautiful views across the Firth of Forth.
The property is extremely versatile, as with already generous living space spread over 2 floors, it offers a unique opportunity to utilise the interlinked vacant retail premises as a potential home office or a conversion project.
The accommodation in the house consists of an entrance porch, hallway, a lovely south facing dining kitchen with modern fitted units, a Rangemaster cooker and doors leading out to the garden. Also on this level there is a utility room, dining room and the family bathroom, with bath and separate shower enclosure. There is currently internal access from the residential accommodation to the commercial premises through a door in the dining room.
On the upper level there is a lounge with triple windows, press style shelving and a feature fireplace with gas flame fire. There is a master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, two further double bedrooms and a separate toilet and washbasin. There is a large partially floored attic space with potential to extend subject to all the usual permissions. At one time the current owners had planning permission for two or three bedrooms in the attic space but this has expired.
The sunny south facing garden has been designed with lower and upper patio areas to enjoy outside entertaining, steps lead to an area of lawn, pretty borders and a rockery. There is a gate at the rear of the garden which leads to the garage and parking area for two cars at Back Lane.
The former retail space has a large window and central door facing the High Street and comprises a generous floor space, rear office, wash room and wc. A door from the office leads to a service passage and storage area which gives access to the High Street and the rear paved garden area. There is, of course, scope to apply for change of use from commercial to residential.
From as early as 1149 Aberlady was an active harbour and in 1633 was officially made the Port of Haddington. The affluence that this beautiful conservation village enjoyed can be seen in its buildings and the Custom House still remains. Aberlady diminished as a port and the beautiful sandy shoreline is now a nature reserve.
1876 saw the arrival of Kilspindie Golf Course and there are many other courses in the immediate area that offer first class golf including Luffness, Gullane, Muirfield, The Renaissance, Craigielaw, Archerfield and The Glen and The West in North Berwick.
Aberlady is a thriving village with a range of amenities including a local shop, farm shop and restaurants.
There is an excellent primary school and secondary education is catered for in North Berwick around seven miles along the coast.
Recreational activities include an active bowling club, a bird watching centre, the nature reserve and beautiful country walking.
There is a regular bus service to North Berwick and Edinburgh with rail links available from North Berwick, Drem and Longniddry.
